    I see in my mind's eye a 70's styled film using a Dennis Wheatley story, no an outstanding piece (otherwise I would remember it). Boat gets into a Sargasso Sea type weed, loads of marooned ships with descendants of the crews on them with a boy leader. They hop around the weed using inflated bladders. I don't think it was The Man Who Missed The War. What was the title? I read the book in my teens and from this distance just cannot recall the details of the film or book.

    It's The Lost Continent (1968)

    Don't tell the "Usual Suspects" but Dana Gillespie has a small part in the film (not two large ones as might be thought ).

    It's available on DVD on both sides of the pond Bernardo and is definitely of the 'so-bad-it's-brilliant' class of movie! We re-watch it every now and then cos Mrs. Smudge is a big fan of Tony Beckley and it always gives us a great laugh...!

    There was another film, on a similar subject. Called The Lost Incontinent, it was set in the Yellow Sea.

    Jimmy Hanley and the giant crab are a good double act!
