After the werewolf is dispatched, Kolchak says that "when the old ship was scrapped, all evidence was scrapped along with her." But in the next scene, he is dictating the final details into his recorder, while sitting on the dock with the ship behind him.
When Kolchak tries to get to the bridge he says he and the Captain served on the Yorktown in 1944. The crewman blocking his access points out that the Yorktown went down in 1942. While the first Yorktown (CV-5) was sunk at Midway in 1942, the second Yorktown (CV-10) (renamed from the Bon Homme Richard) was launched in early 1943 and earned 11 battle-stars in the Pacific theater.
