Ediz Hook Washing Machine July 2015

We just got a go-pro and for $700 can now get decent video where the $3k I spent a few years ago only produced junk.

Here's my first go at an HD Vimeo of some sailing.

Until I get into more dramatic conditions this will have to do for ya'll.

Hi Strait Shooter,

I recognize your boat. I've seen you in Sequim Bay the last year or so.

You see me sometimes on weekends. I come in on Saturdays go to the buoys and leave Sunday morning.

A tiller? So you're one of those people

Hey, lookup Doug Brown here on CF, he and his wife have owned a Red Admiral for many years, and are getting ready to cruise her again.

Re: Ediz Hook Washing Machine July 2015

Aren't GPro's loads of fun? I recently made one that was a blast. Still working on the sound track (tune I recorded in my studio). But NOoooo! I get to sit in a hotel waiting to go to work (yesterday would have been really good sailing. Envious me? Yep. Nice video. When it's done I will join you in sharing. ��

The sound track is really the hardest part.

Originally I had a normal video camera and the slightest breeze sounded like a hurricane. When I put it in the waterproof bag it was worse with the squeaking of the bag.

So I got a Roland digital multi-track recorder to create sound for the videos.

The go pro doesn't really solve those problems.

I'm not really a guitar player so coming up with three minutes of guitar that doesn't suck was a real chore.

My plan for the future is to take the recording unit with me when I'm sailing and leaving it down below out of the wind but still able to record water and wind sounds. Then I'll use a clap or something in front of the go pro and close enough to the recorder so I can line up the sound track with the video.

Just my thoughts for now anyway. I'm looking forward to winter and finally capturing some decent video when it gets fun around here.

Yeah!

Apparently I'm the only one with a Red Admiral that has a tiller. Took off a high end rack and pinion wheel to get it. Drove with a two foot long steel emergency tiller for two years before getting rid of the wheel completely and fabricating the fitting for attaching a real tiller. (full confession: below deck auto drives a lot)

Never looked back. Best change I've made to the boat. In the roughest weather it's effortless and when the boat begins to surf the feel of being locked onto a rail is palpable. That's something you never experience with a wheel.

The response sailing upwind in waves is immediate and the ability to sit up on the high side gives a much better view of the waves ahead than being way in back behind the wheel.

Hi Steve,

I recognize your boat. Wasn't that you that I saw sail onto, and off of, your mooring once?
Next time you see me, give a shout.

John

Sweet video btw..........

Very nice video! Great music selection. Could I ask what video recorder you had before the go pro?

Re: Ediz Hook Washing Machine July 2015

I'm hoping you are up for constructive criticism.

If you look at Youtube stats, entire videos set to music have the lowest views.

For me, I never watch more then 10 seconds before fast forwarding to see if the whole video is like that. If it is, I move on.

I prefer some dialog (even a dub track). Talk about the conditions, the trim of the sail, how the boat is handing, ect. Then I'm hooked.

P.S. Yup... Gopros are awesome. Wanna be even more surprised, try one of the $100 chinese knock offs (SJ4000). Although the video is not quite as good as a GoPro, its pretty damn good (and they use interchangeable mounts).

I am one of those guys too. Also best thing I have done to the boat. I hate felling trapped behind a wheel. It's nice with a tiller extension to be able to sit anywhere in the cockpit, including up underneath the dodger when things get messy. Happy sailing!

Re: Ediz Hook Washing Machine July 2015

Nice sound quality on the recording and good video but I have to agree with travellerw about voice over. Even a voice over with the text you posted below would have made it more interesting IMHO. Your video was nice and smooth though. Well edited.
