When Eddie and his men impersonate the Coast Guard, there is a "miniature" shot of the two boats pulling alongside one another. Nick's rum runner boat, that George captains, is a much taller boat, and its deck is higher off the water than the smaller vessel. Yet when the shot changes to live action and Eddie's crew is throwing mooring lines across to the bigger boat, the decks are now the same height; further, when the men cross from one boat to the other, they merely step over the rail instead of needing to climb up to the taller boat's deck.
