Continuity: When Captain Willard flies in by helicopter to meet up with the PBR at the Texaco fuel depot, we see only one PBR with a flag waving in the front and a radar dome on the back of the roof. This is not the same boat that we see in the next shot in which the flag and radar dome are reversed.
Continuity: Several different boats are used in this movie as "PBR Street Gang" and they are almost duplicates of each other. In the scene where Clean is killed look at the handrail on the port side that extends from the rear of the roof towards the front of the boat. The last section is kinked up at a 45-degree angle where it's attached to the roof. Two minutes later we see a wide shot of a different PBR which has a gentle bend in this piece of metal rather than the abrupt bend on the other boat.
Continuity: In the boat Captain Willard reads more about Colonel Kurtz' and fingers through his three Green Beret applications. Right after the captain says, "But when he threatened to resign, they gave it to him," he stops on a prop sheet that had the real names and dates erased and new names and dates typed in using a different typewriter that has darker numbers and letters.
Continuity: In the scene where they stop the junker boat that they think might be smuggling supplies, as you watch the many scene angles, you can tell that the sun is at different points at different times. Where Willard is sitting at the side of the boat the sun is nearly set, and at one point is below the horizon. At another time, you can tell, the sun is several degrees above that, and in one angle, it is practically noon. Also, the boats change angles, toward the shoreline, possibly to shoot a scene from a better light angle.
