    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Any of several episodes of Miami Vice.

    Wind was an awful film, but in that segment you have 12s looking like they are speedboats. Cool.

    I went to YouTube to find the schooner racing scenes in Captain's Courageous, but the closest I got was Tracy's death scene. There is some great action scenes in that old movie.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    More cat & mouse than actual chase scene, but I nominate Riddle of the Sands movie. I can still remember that German gunboat bearing down on them.

    The only chase worse than the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade boat chase is the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade motorcycle chase.

    The only other boat chase that is that bad would be from this:
    <span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); background-color: rgb(250, 250, 250);">
    At about 40:00
    Somehow this is easier to watch.
