Corrected entry: When Blackthorne is steering the Japanese galley duing a storm, Rodrigues goes forward to tell him how to steer around the rocks ahead. At one point, Rodrigues yells, "Hard a-port!" At the time, the term for the left side of a ship was "larboard." The term was replaced with "port" in the mid-1800's because "larboard" was easily confused with "starboard."

Correction: As is standard in historically-set movies, present-day language and terminology have been used so that a modern audience can understand what's being said. This is a standard movie convention and is not considered a mistake.
