Station Keeping in a Strong Current, Niagara Falls

Okay, I figured I may as well give this one more try. I'm just goofing around with my Handycam for fun. The video is not monetized by me, but the sound track is by somebody I do not know. I have no connection to the musician.

This is the same as my last video in the sense that nothing special was going on, I just set my camera up in front of me on a boat I happened to be driving, this one was May this year.

The last time I posted a video, several people didn't think I was much of a seaman and suggested I get out of boating.

This video to me, is about how well a Cat CAN handle in adverse conditions. Enjoy. This video was taken in fresh, not blue water.

After a boat ride, one of the passengers asked me to pose with him for a photo. The former Archbishop of Cape Town and Nobel Peace Prize winner - Desmond Tutu.

Very cool - and I liked the music.

I've always loved Niagara Falls. The first time I saw them in person I was entranced. To this day I say to Mr. Cthoops that if I was guaranteed to survive, I wouldn't hesitate to go over the falls in a barrel.
