Speed 2: Cruise Control

Factual error: No ship has ever been - or ever will be built without having emergency fuel shutoff devices that can be manually operated.

Factual error: In one scene they attempt to divert the ship by manually activating the ship's bowthruster. A thruster is a propeller in a transverse direction. This allows the ship to turn more efficiently when docking. However the thruster loses any efficiency above approximately 5 knots. In the film they use it at 17 knots. Secondly, a thruster is powered by an electric motor of at least 500 kW, yet they manage to turn it by hand. That handle does not exist in real life, and no one would be able to turn it anyway.

Revealing mistake: When we see Annie looking back at Seaborn Legend just after it hit the Heindhoven Lion, the Seaborn Legend looks like it is superimposed onto the water.

New this month Question: Why did the first sail boat the ship hit explode?

New this month 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.
