The Perfect Storm

Trivia: The Crow's Nest is not on the water. It's actually about four blocks away from where it was in the movie. Also, it's a three-story building.

Trivia: The film is accurate in its depiction of how the Perfect Storm actually formed (a combination of two weather fronts and one dying hurricane) except for the depiction of Hurricane Grace; in the film, it's stated to be a Category 5, while in reality, it was only a Category 2.

Continuity mistake: As the Coast Guard cutter is making the second attempt to rescue the helicopter pilot and the injured para-rescuer, in one overhead shot we see the crew on the foredeck holding the cargo net. After the two men are swept off the net, another shot shows the foredeck empty, though the ship's crew is still at the cargo net attempting the rescue.
