More movies to watch during quarantine

As the COVID-19 outbreak requires indoor time to halt its momentum, Boat International published the list, The Best Boat Movies To Watch During Quarantine. Curious if there were other movies to consider, we asked for suggestions… and we got them.
Far and away, the glaring omission was Captain Ron (above). This 1992 film featured a Chicagoan (Martin Short) who inherited an old yacht, and how he hired Captain Ron (Kurt Russell) to help his family sail from the Caribbean to Miami. Classic! Among the suggestions, we opted not to include animated features (Finding Nemo, Little Mermaid, Moana), animated shorts (The Old Man and The Sea), or non-English movies (Knife in the Water). However, if this quarantine period extends to summer, we’ll revisit that decision.

Other suggestions ranged from very old to more recent, from documentaries to creative, and from full sailing stories to marginally relevant. Aside from our corporate ban of All is Lost, here’s the list:

• Around Cape Horn

• Captains Courageous
