Continuity mistake: When Alex rescues Drew, it is the middle of the night. There are a few consecutive events, then it is instantly daylight. But the events are all consecutive. There is no way the sun could rise that fast.

More quotes from Speed 2: Cruise Control

Question: Why did the first sail boat the ship hit explode? (01:38:20)

Answer: There is no logical reason for it and it is purely for cinematic theatrics. It's a movie myth that cars, boats, etc. immediately explode upon impact. In real life, explosions rarely happen that way.
