Wow what action!
What sailing! What a hunk (Crowe, not the ship)!
If you go see this, when the scene comes up that they are going around Cape Horne. It is blowing stink and there is driven snow. As they pan down along the ship, there is a poor person sitting with his pants about his ankles at the "heads" of the ship. On such men of war ships, the toilet was at the bow, under the bowsprit, in the rigging that supports that forward sails. It must have been really cold. You have to watch close.
I noticed in the credits at least two of the "sailors" were women.
