Re: Short, tame video on 37

Nice boat. There is a 37 across from us that cruised down to Mexico. They are up in the Broughtons right now. We may meet up with them later in July up in Desolation Sound. They buddy boated with another 37 when they were down south. That 37 doesn't have the teak rub rail around the hull. That really changes the appearance of the boat.

I'm not really sure. This boat was one caught up in the re-purchase of the company by Steve Brodie. Steve pointed out the rail to me when I saw her for the first time, but it didn't occur to me to ask if that was now standard. I have a feeling he can do it both ways. This has also been the last 37 built. There have been a couple of 34's, but I don't know how their rails were designed.

Another calming video with "The Decemberists" from The Tar River...on the way out to the real stuff. Saturday saw gusts over 25 in the main sound. Unfortunately my GoPro ran out of juice on this calmer stuff:

Seacurves Given we have had to put our boat on the hard for the winter your videos are well appreciated. Thanks for sharing!

There are days when Lake Michigan is both flat and has a nice wind, but maybe only a handful of times each season (at least on the weekends when I generally can sail). Nonetheless, our PSC 37 plows right thru the wave action in all but the more extreme conditions. A wonderfully stable sailboat.

Alannc44 Thanks. Yes, it was one of the best weekends ever. Never really saw anyone else out, but a lot of sailors are still reeling from Hurricane Irene. I even came upon a couple of logs floating. Spotted a limb of about 8-10 inches sticking straight up about 12 feet. Couldn't see the trunk it was attached to. Other than occasional floating limbs and hurricanes, the tributaries and Pamlico Sound are really a sailing paradise when it comes together.

Alannc44 It was incredibly relaxing. Here's a better video from earlier in the day: sail2 on Vimeo

At 30 knots it gets quite choppy, and especially if the wind comes up the river. Still, our PSC's can handle ANYTHING Pamlico dishes out.

Looks like a great day for a nice sail on a nice boat Alan! Wish Lake Michigan was still like that.

Alannc44 The steadiness is directly attributable to the 37's stability!

I just used one of the GoPro Hero cams and taped it to a broom stick. I should've done what a buddy of mine did: Sean wants to take you for a ride on a sailboat. on Vimeo

I'll work on it. By the way, these waterproof cameras are AWESOME for taping to a stick and holding under the water for quick hull and prop inspections.
