Back from SA today after a wonderful trip spoilt a bit at the end by the stealing of video equipment
from my airline baggage in Jo'berg - did you know that if a lens is stolen that has no electronic parts
or connections there is no compensation because it can attached to an electronic device - also because its glass its not covered because it can break - even though it was stolen? Just thought I would pass these amusing gems onto you all - the only thing that took the edge away from a fantastic trip to a fantastic place.
We have a lot of video to edit and post incliuding that of what appears to have been the worst storm for about 40 years or so at St Francis that flooded homes, destroyed dozens of pontoons and even sank a large fishing
boat inside its own harbour.....!!! This makes a fairly dramatic start to the video which deals in detail with the St Francis. The video will however follow on from the Leopard 46
which is featured will be out within about ten days.
They started on my boat this last week - I have the first few stills to post.
Spent 6 days at St Francis making decision after decision. The boat will feature a full scale video studio in an after cabin
- the bed
comes out and the engine
cover forms part of one table. The video will take you through each part of the boat and after some requests Lesley does the interviewing of Duncan and some yard staff. The video should be about 30 minutes long and will be posted in about 4 band width options.
I could not be more pleased with Duncan, his staff and the open manner in which business is conducted.
The idea was to post a series of videos but as it seems stolen luggage is very much part of the SA scene and theft does not even appear to be investigated, future video will depend on what assurances I can get from taking future video equipment
Anyway that is is just a quick report - much more info to follow.
