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.

Hey, you wouldn't be trying to cheat Captain Ron there, would you, swab?
Uh, no sir. Uh, so what happened?

Kurt Russell is one of those actors that can play a variety of roles, & get away with it. Action, drama, & comedy. He must of been thinking of Jack Burton from 'Big Trouble In Little China' & but some of that into this movie. 'Captain Ron' is a great movie! The plot is simple, & so is the movie. That is what make sit so much fun. Yes, most of the movie is translucent, but it works so well. Kurt Russell shines as Capt. Ron Rico, who has been hired by the Harvey family to be the drive their boat from a Carribean Island to Miami, FL. While he bumbles from one scene to the other, Capt. Ron manages to be successful in the end. All of this makes Martin Harvey(Martin Short) furious, while his family loves Capt. Ron. Lots of laughs.
