Forrest Gump - Ghost Boat Driver
In the scene where Forrest is on his boat and sails past Dan on the dock, he jumps off and swims to the dock where Dan is waiting. But the problem is that the boat is going to the right (Dan's view) and past Leutinant Dan. But then, later, Forrest says, "That's my boat," as it wrecks into the dock to the far left of Dan. This means that the boat would have to travel past Dan, and then make a left turn and circle back around then and come is straight and run right into that dock. This to me doesn't seem possible at all, unless some mysterious person is in control of the boat.

Or, in Forest's excitement, he could have just left the wheel turned. I know that when you have momentum in a car, and you let go of the wheel, it usually starts when people fall asleep at the wheel, and end up in a tree. On water, that would cause the boat to turn around also...water is weird like that.

Yes, it does go around in a circle, but you will see that just before Forrest sees Lt. Dan, he turns the wheel all the way to the left. I mean WAY left, too. So when he jumps off, the boat continues to the way the wheel was turned.

You've missed the point. Forrest disregards his boat to greet his friend Dan, leaving the boat to wander hap-hazardly. It then crashes into the dock behind them, thus illustrating his recklessness. The fact that it is impossible for the boat to do such a sharp 180, does not need to enter in to it.
