GoPro Camera is our Hero !

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a funny story.

The other day, Chris was messing around with our GoPro camera and in
mad-scientist fashion, devised a mount for the camera at the end of an old boat hook pole so he could stick it underwater to see how our bottom looked.

What we saw when we popped the card into the laptop and hit play completely took us by surprise! Our prop was completely tangled in a heap of old nylon rope (from a crab pot maybe?) and a mess of other twine/roots, etc. Even more surprising than that was what made its home on top of all this mess.

You just gotta check out the story and video - we couldn't have planned it better!

Great story.

Here are a couple of photos I am not too proud of.

Check out the size of "lunch" compared to the putty knife length...

Mmmmm. Makes me want a sandwich.
That's pretty foul though - bet your speed went up after scraping all that off!
