Ha! I suppose you are right! I guess the sailing I do here is not congested enough to even think I would need to be able to see around the jib. I can imagine situations where that could be helpful. It sure could be helpful avoiding lobster pots. I will have to give it some serious thought. The cameras are inexpensive enough to play with the idea.

I am working on "trout cam" in the brook behind my house. A small pool with about 30 sea run brookies I feed every day is the perfect spot to install an uw video camera that allows me to watch them on my computer screen in the house. I clearly have too much time on my hands!
