Post More Videos

in response to members requests for more blue water videos,after watching mark j's excellent window on his atlantic crossing.

this one is about how to deal with big fish when running down wind from hawaii to australia last year on delivery.

I can't match MarkJ for blue-water expertise, but here, for any other northerners enduring this particularly endless winter, is a short movie from a warm & relaxed sail in our home cruising grounds on Lake Superior. We'd just taken delivery of a new-to-us Island Packet 31.

atoll -

What the heck would have happened had you landed that tuna? Things might have gotten pretty lively on deck! Not to mention, you'd have been cleaning up blood and guts for days, possibly some of it being yours.
