Spider-Man: Homecoming

Factual error: The ferry splits in half down the middle...enough so the water is flooding in dramatically as the split grows. There is no possible way that the two halves of the ferry could have remained afloat like that. It would have sunk immediately. Then, as Iron Man "welds" the two halves back together, the ferry is afloat at the same waterline as before the incident...certainly not feasible with all the water it took on.

Suggested correction: A boat does not instantly sink. It has to take on a substantial quantity of water. The volume that entered the boat may have caused it to sit lower in the water, but there are still numerous areas not flooded. As long as the boat still produces enough displacement, it will stay afloat.

Factual error: After Toomes and his crew lose the cleanup contract and they are back in their shop, on the table is a Coors "stubby" Banquet beer bottle. This bottle was released in 2013 and the scene takes place earlier than that.

Factual error: The Staten Island Ferry is shown transporting motor vehicles on its lower level; this hasn't been done since the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Suggested correction: Trying to claim a factual error two describe difference with the MCU and real life seems like a stretch. Just because in real life the ferry doesn't transport cars like that doesn't mean that service couldn't have resumed in the MCU version of New York. If this is a "factual error" as far as the film is concerned, then it is also a "factual error" to have Stark Tower in the middle of New York (it doesn't really exist), and it's a "factual error" to have alien technology drive the plot since the Battle of New York never actually happened in real life. And you might as well say it's a "factual error" every time a fictional character shows up on screen since they don't exist in real life. In other words, it's part of the story this movie is telling. Or, to put another way, had they had filmed a scene in which someone says "we reinstated the car transportation ferry, " would it still be a factual error simply because it's a fictional digression from the real world?
