Funny There was i thinking my boats was to fast for Wicky park.
Still with a fair wind and a bit of speed Stavros can get his boat to jump out of the boating lake into the main lake now without touching the ground once. :-))




However its only fair if he post's a picture of his new boat so we can get a chance to build one to challenge it. (Note. Phil is not saying much on this subject ) is he worried because it down to him the catch it and the end of the run. {-)

Hi fellow loons I know it's a bit off topic but I'm thinking of sailing my Alien creation in the dark on Saturday evening. With its mass of LED lighting effects it could look rather spooky. Once the wee lads from over the border have consumed a few drams they will believe they've had an encounter.


Maybe Martin can play the X-Files theme tune over the PA to complete the effect. (I've got it on CD if your up to it Sir).

Did you not see the tug cam we brought from Scotland a year or so ago??
One of our members used a tug hull with a basic square superstructure with a holder for a video camera
On it. If you search for E Haig on YouTube you will see his videos he has done with it.

If the size of the camera isn't a major issue, I would would just use one of the waterproof tough cameras e.g. Panasonic FT range and their ilk. The picture quality is better on these than any of the actioncams.

I use the little 808 cameras, becuase they're tiny and light, so they're ideal for use in a watertight housing for underwater or clipped onto a model aeroplane for aerial shots. I sacrifice a little in quality in exchange for the bijou qualities.

I would advise keeping the camera as low as possible e.g. deck level, else you'll make your viewers a bit queasy.

Yes, that's what I've noticed in Utube videos.
There was a link on here where a friendly Frenchman(?) posted up a particularly good video... can't find in now!  >:-o
