Will Turner: This is either madness, or brilliance.
Jack Sparrow: It's funny how often those traits coincide.
Aboard Dauntless, when Will says, "Here they come," behind him the deck can be seen. Then when the grapnels are being swung over Dauntless' rail by the Marines, very taught lines inches above the deck are seen going through the balusters of the rail leading to Interceptor. The taught lines were not placed by the Marines, only the grapnels, nor were they placed by Will and Jack. As Norrington says, "Set top sails and clear..." those lines going through the balusters aren't in this shot. These lines are the 'real' lines used by the crew's marine-unit for set up of the separation of the two ships. See more...
As the Interceptor is pulling away from the Dauntless, in the wide shot there are still ropes between the two ships. The camera crew were caught off guard, since the sails were full, the Interceptor started pulling away sooner than expected, pulling the ropes taut, ripping off the belaying pins. Johnny Depp (Jack) was hit hard in the knee with one of those pins and knocked him to the ground. It was the only shot the camera crew had of Interceptor actually pulling away. On screen, in the close-up, Will is seen cutting all the lines. Commentary, DVD. See more...

Just as Jack says, "On deck, you scabrous dogs," to the very left edge of the screen over Jack's shoulder is a grip crew member with a tan cowboy hat, white short sleeve tee shirt and sunglasses, just standing there looking out to sea.
