Default What are some good movies with boating as one of the main topics??

I am trying to think of the name of a movie I saw a while back, has to be at least 8-10 years, but it had a lot of high performance boats, and involved the Customs Service or Coast Gaurd trying to make drug running busts.

How about other movies?? I wanted to see some
I know of Striking Distance and heard that "All about the Benjamins" had a lot of boats in it?
Any others?

I am not sure if this is the movie you are thinking of or not, but one of my favorites none the less. "Thunder Boat Row". It was shown on national tv, but never maid it to an actual movie I am very interested to see who else posts on this

There is a movie about to be released entitled "Madison".
It centers around the life of the Miss Madison Unlimited Hydroplane.

"Perfect Storm" Oops, not a very happy ending with respect to boating.
"Jaws" Boat sank, Quint eaten by sharks. Not a happy ending to that one either.
"White Squall" Blowboat movie, boat sank again.
"Titanic" Girl cheats on fiance, boat sank.
Wait, I know, "Deliverace" One canoe sank, one guy drowns, Ned Beaty squeals like a pig.
Anybody notice a trend here?
Maybe we should make this hard and try to think of movies where the boats dont sink.

Forgot another one:
"Moby Dick" Call me Ishmael, whale sinks boat.
I'm thinking about changing careers and doing movie reviews. What do you think?

Homer's "The Illiad" and "The Odyssey"

Helen of Troy - the face that launched a thousand ships.....

BEAUTIFUL.
