Corrected entry: In the scene immediately after Gena Davis receives a wound, she drinks some whiskey, or rum, and then pours some of the drink on her wound as an antiseptic. The understanding of germs and infection didn't occur until Pasteur's discoveries in the mid 1800's, well after the time period of this film.
Plot hole: Towards the end of the film, Morgan (Geena Davis) and Dawg (Frank Langella) are fighting to the death below decks, and Morgan pulls back a canvas sheet to show a cannon pointing right at Dawg's chest - and he stands staring at the burning fuse for a ridiculous amount of time, easily enough time for him to casually step out of the way and let the cannon blast away harmlessly. What an idiot.
William: It is hard to imagine which part of your life would require me to speak Latin.
