Not sure if it's been mentioned yet here, but I am surprised if it wasn't: Deliverance.

In addition to Captain Ron which makes me laugh...
Boatniks (classic Disney)
Operation Petticoat (pink submarine - a favorite for certain)
Utopia (has a big schooner taking Laurel and Hardy to paradise)
Wackiest Ship in the Army

Houseboat
What's the one set in the pacific islands with the curmudgeon coast watcher and the French lady with all the girls? I used to have it and suspect my daughter "borrowed" that one. Cary Grant most likely (she likes him almost as much as I do)

Short story re Mr. Grant, er Archibald as he was known back in those days: On Cape Cod, my dad's sister was quite a looker. Red hair (it's a family trait) and the star at that time was just a guy on the make. Apparently my dad was being a pest as only little brothers can. He (Archibald) gave Daddy an 1865 Indian head penny to go away. We still have the penny.

Not sure if Lucy ever got her fellow, but my Dad had the penny in his box when he died.

As for humor, most of the books by Daniel Gallery, USN Retired.
Cap'n Fatso, Eight Bells, Clear the Decks, etc. He was the leader of the carrier task force in WWII that captured the German sub U-505 that now resides in Chicago. I'd be tempted to do the loop JUST to see that boat, er, sub. Back in the day, I sold the museum there my First Edition of Eight Bells. And if you shop for the books, the paperback version of 8 does not have the photo section found in the hard-cover.

Hands down favorite though is Captain Ron. My tastes run toward fun not high-stakes excitement. Jaws (the book) was littered with the F-word. Bah humbug.

But you know, I loved Rescue from Gilligan's Island. Ginger is new but otherwise all the actors returned. It's cheesy and I liked it a lot. I'll watch it later today.

The guy who did the Mountain Family Robinson movie series also made one called Sea Gypsy with the same older girl too. In that one a kid stows away and there is a ship wreck off a remote Alaskan island. I bought Sea Gyspy (digital version from Amazon) and learned to my chagrin it can only be downloaded into two computers. It's available still via broadband but I am Beyond Miffed that I cannot access/download it again for watching at my leisure on the boat.

That's it for my suggestions.
Mr. Limpet (Don Knotts turns into a fish) has WWII ships. I have that aboard Seaweed too. Don Knotts' Reluctant Astronaut tickles my fancy too, along with the Ghost and Mr. Chicken.

Janice, that would be "Father Goose" with Leslie Caron. She was perfect in it.

Remember the scene in Father Goose where they were all in a little dinghy being pushed by a Seagull engine trying to cross open water between islands? That was scary.

Patrick Stewart did a great job portraying captain Ahab in the tv version of Moby Dick
