As they approach St. Haag and Martin is calling for Captain Ron, the nearer of the two cowl vents in the background starts out facing port side aft, next is shown facing forward as Caroline comes up the companionway, then is shown facing forward again as the boat passes close to the camera and in subsequent shots in its original orientation, including in distant shots from the starboard side as they come into port, then back again as Martin throws fenders over the starboard side and as the boat is docked.

A very enjoyable movie.
5 January 1999 | by INDIANA-4See all my reviews

This film has a little bit of everything in it. Adventure, pirates, lots of excitement, and plenty of laughs. It is one of the most enjoyable movies I've watched. If you just want to relax and sit back and laugh, CAPTAIN RON is a movie you won't want to miss.
