Re: Clever Way to Do Business

I've seen this before but one point and one question. First those bags are holding a whole lot of water weight. Gives you an idea of the power a set of sails generate when healed in that position. Second, it may be obvious but I'm missing it. How did he upright that boat on the other side?

Re: Clever Way to Do Business

Look closely at the end of the video.........he has lines attached to the "balls" (I think that they are divers lift bags, inverted to hold water) and he hauls them in towards the boat.

Re: Clever Way to Do Business

Clever indeed! That's not a new video, but I still enjoy seeing it again. And kids today say "why do I have to grasp Newtonian physics? Everything's quantum!"

Because Newton knew how to use his balls, son.
