Question: Why does the demon kill the salvage crew before the boat is even fixed, and why couldn't he fix the boat himself if he already has the ability to move objects?

Answer: Not fixing the boat drew the salvage crew to the boat, where the demon could fill his soul-quota far away from any aid his victims may have sought.

Question: Why was Epps's dead crew involved in taking the gold onto the new ship? Wouldn't their souls have gone to Heaven when the ship sank?

Answer: No, they succumbed to their sins so their souls are eternally damned.

Question: After the crew and passengers were killed both during the party and in the empty swimming pool, what happened to their remains? Their skeletons and clothing would still be there, right?

Answer: No reasonable explanation is given as to what happens to them but considering what the ship and its ghosts can do, it's not unreasonable to assume they discarded everything at some point.

Answer: Dodge shot Ferriman, believing him to be dead. Ferriman was not dead, and he then killed Dodge. Ferriman then morphed into Dodge's form.

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning and especially at the end, Julianna Margulies spends extensive time in the ocean, wearing nothing but cargo pants and a T-shirt. Considering the movie takes place just off the Bering Strait, wouldn't she have quickly frozen to death? (01:21:05)

More quotes from Ghost Ship

Trivia: The studio and producer Joel Silver reportedly called for major re-writes of the script shortly before shooting began. Many of the actors had signed up based on the original script, titled "Chimera", which contained far less violence and supernatural elements, and instead was a psychological drama about what happens to a salvage crew when they are stranded in the middle of the ocean. Much of the cast wasn't informed that the script had been almost completely altered into a more generic supernatural-horror/slasher film until just before they showed up to begin filming, leaving many of them disheartened and disgruntled.
