II. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: The scar on Singleton's face changes from the right side of his face to the left side several times.

I. - S1-E1

Factual error: The men rowing the longboat into the wharf at Nassau are completely hopeless oarsmen. Needless to say, 18th century sailors would have been expert oarsmen. Untrained 21st century actors are not.

VIII. - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: The scene in the captain's quarters has water dripping from the ceiling. With the ship rocking from side to side, the water drops down perpendicular to the table the whole time, showing the scene is stationary and the camera is tilting. (00:14:00 - 00:14:35)

I. - S1-E1

Plot hole: Why, of all people on board, would the cook know of a specific entry in the captain's log, exactly where to look for it, and that it contained very valuable information?

XI - S2-E3

Ann Bonnie: If you're angry about the whore and me, just fucking say so.
Jack Rackham: You have an itch that needs scratching, go with God. My trouble isn't that she knows how to play the thing between your legs better than I do, but the one between your ears.
