They were on Port tack, not Starboard, but who cares...they are out there cruising.

Just curious: you are sailing on a port tack in towards a coastline, two of you aboard, both below, and you both seem deeply ensconced in a movie while navigating from a smartphone? How often is one of you going on deck to actually keep watch? Do you have a radar guard up? AIS alarm?

You are not, it would appear, deep ocean sailing there… lots of things and people to smack into.

Nothing out there to encounter except pirates, and this boat is a floating arsenal.

One of the videos shows a second guy on board, I think.
