Chartered a bareboat off Great Abaco back in the early 70's.
I can still smell the sea air.
Thanks for the memories.

Long familiar with Glidecam, owned a full rig for a few years.

I find most of the small stabilizers to be less than optimum. Which model Glidecam? I assume you're using an HDSLR?

Thnx

The camera footage is stabilized on a "glidecam," which is essentially a metal frame that has free movement in all directions. When you balance it by adjusting the screws, then the camera stays level and the system naturally swings back to the level state whenever it is knocked around thereby dampening movement. There are a few makers of this out there, another is steadicam I believe.

Harborless: What...........Caves on Man o war? Huh? Tell me more. My crew to the Abacos always consists of experienced cavers (only people who will sail with me cuz they have low comfort expectations). I really do not recall much vertical relief on Man o war. Do you know any other caves (dry or at least some air space) I can use to entice my crew? We did the ones near Hole in the wall and we even found some on Green Turtle But local knowledge trumps everything. Happen to know Nancy Albury?

I hoped to get more sailing shots in, and found myself hanging off the side of the boat with my camera! I'm just glad I didn't fall in, there were a few close calls! ^^;
