Much better watching in front of the computer screen, there are a few other good heavy weather videos on the site as well

Hi Glyn

Been trying to get down there, but something always prevents me.  Will try in the new year. Might be ready to sail by February   8)

   The tug video is very good it was shot on our model boat pond, during our tug towing displays only required a hair drier to get the heavy sea effect

  The chopper was the easy part, the question should be who was shooting the footage that shows the chopper and tug , ???
