Leonora fighting the gunboat

At the showndown, a gunboat attacks the Leonora. But as the good guys alway win, one is able and clever enough to escape and hide from the steamer and finally making it explode. Let me show you step by step:

If you ever sailed the Eye or any other square rigger, you may remember the trouble and sometimes all hands on deck manoevres when wearing or tacking. What a hustle! I'll never understand why the guys shouting commands around never took the easy way one can observe in the film: The captain wants to hide his ship behind a peninsula. So all he has to do was laying the helm at the right moment. You see: It's not even two people really being busy!

Leonora under attack. It looks pretty much like the explosion that destroyed the Northumberland in Blue Lagoon, but I suppose it's arranged like this for the sake of the ship. They simply didn't pay enough really to harm a truely existing and well preserved vessel...

Duck and hide behind the pinrail - it surely helps against the cannon.

Thank god, on a sailing vessel there are always lots of loose lines hanging around. These some 8 ones are dangeling down between the masts - just right to enter the enemy.
