Giu, waves never look as big in pictures as they really are, or maybe you're just exaggerating .

You've been taking quite a lot of video footage lately, and it made me think of this product. It's called True Horizon and it keeps the camera leveled while you sail, like a gimbaled camera mount . Just thought you might want to check them out.

Dictated, but not read.

Thanks for the thought Gui, but some of us stuck at work just have to imagine the pics.

Blasted filters! Can't sail or enjoy the view, what do they expect us to do?

Alex, I was really enjoying the video until the reflection of the sun off of your bald spot blinded me.

It would be worth learning to bypass the filters. Maybe with a fake proxy or something. Google has all the answers.

Life is an adventure so get on with it.

Giu-=

The video always flattens out the waves... go figure. Nice to see you on your tippy fat boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
