Revealing mistakes 

Just before the crew begins to seal the hatch to make an air bubble, light can be seen reflecting off the water deep in the hold. For this to happen there would have to be an above water opening in the side of the ship, which would make an air bubble impossible. However, the hold is obviously a stage setting with lights above the water to make it visible.

When the boat rocks back and forth when the officer explains why the floors in the mess hall are waxed, there is an external shot that shows the boat and the ocean, the horizon moves with the boat.
