Video Camera to read the water in Bahamas?
I was just poking around Yachtworld to see what B49's are going for these days to see how much I've "lost" already
, and then I saw the below picture that just made a light bulb go off in my head. The Raymarine E series can display video from a video feed. Sometimes people use this for engine rooms, underwater views, and stuff like that.
What about mounting a camera at the top of the mast, pointing downward towards the bow so that you get a bird's eye view of the water in front of you. Wouldn't that be an awesome way to navigate the Bahamas? You would have a real-time aerial view of the water right in front of you displayed on your chartplotter right in the cockpit at the helm. What better way to read the water, no? Has anyone done this or otherwise have experience with the concept?
