The Perfect Storm

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where they are getting ready to leave, it's dark and George Clooney is in the wheelhouse - you can clearly see a face of a crew member in the depth finder.

Factual error: The movie was set in 1991, but there is a newspaper with a Kia advertisement. Kia's first U.S. cars arrived in 1994.

Question: Now I know this is based on a true story, but theoretically speaking: 1) Why did Bobby hold off gunning the engine until the very last second? If he'd have acted sooner then maybe the ship would have made it up the wave 2) Why not just slam her into reverse and wait for the wave to collapse? I mean, wouldn't that have been the safest bet?
