Video of my passage St Martin to New York City!!

I made a quick little video during my passage. Its done in one take (and the only take I did) so its not real flash in the production level.

Re: Video of my passage St Martin to New York City!!

Thanks, I enjoyed that. It's good to have something other than your avatar where we always see you reaching into cooler for a few beers! Not that there's anything wrong with the reach for beers, but there is more, but wait! ..... those beers always looked too red in color. What is that? .... strawberry soda?

'anyway,- an exciting passage of St. Martin to NYC!

I stopped the video and couldn't tell for sure. Is that really a dinghy in the davits?

BTW MarkJ, fun video, Thanks.

So where along the way did you lose your keel and rudder?

Even in NYC I suspect he'd get his bicycle & dinghy stolen first.

True. Those thieves' big socket wrenches would be rendered useless. Just goes to show how a real BWB will totally take care of itself, even at the 79th St. boat basin.
