Not to knock the edit job, but the boat's waaaay too modern. It looks like what it is, a modern fishing trawler, not a 30's tramp steamer!

 

And I knew someone would eventually say it. Something made it inevitable.

Well, pnag...far be it from me to ignore the need for accuracy, but I believe that some things, not all things - but SOME things - require a reasonable amount of imagination on the the part of the viewer. I'm no Steven Spielberg, after all. It's not like I can go out and spend millions of dollars re-filming sequences for a movie that's been in the can since 1989. I'm just a dude sitting in an apartment on his home PC.

See, removing the Young Indy sequence presented a problem. I needed something to fade into the Paramount mountain logo (lest I risk the breaking of tradition and incur the wrath of devoted fans). I solved that problem with the best thing I had available to me...shots from another movie. But it couldn't be just any shot. This shot had to be a ship...at night...in a storm...the right kind of storm...the "perfect" storm, in fact...slightly blue tinge...and the exact right angle to match the lines of the logo. So, I compromised with what I had, which...I think...if you squint a little, all things considered, it works pretty well.

It works for me anyway...and in the end, that's all that's important. LOL!

 

So, I say just relax and enjoy.  But, kudos to you for being so eagle-eyed.

p.s. - If you look real hard, you're even able to make out the words "Andrea Gail" emblazoned on the ship's hull. Blink and you'll miss it.
