Loved it! It reminded me of the pristine mid-Atlantic air. Up forward in the galley, someone opens a tin of tuna fish or peanut butter, and instantly the crew in the cockpit can smell it! Lands people often think (wrongly) that the air must smell like the seaside...that tangy smell of decaying kelp etc., but it doesn't. Once any distance offshore the air is antiseptically clean. Thanks for the link.

I think he captured the hours and hours of monotony quite well but where are the moments of sheer terror? Man I can't wait to go. Someday. I'm sure the experience is much different on a sailboat that on an aircraft carrier.

No kidding Smylie. Talk about ideal. BTW - were those warps they were dragging off the stern in a couple of the scenes? The waves didn't look that big to me - but I've never been out so I don't really know.

What do you think? Were they necessary in what you see in the vid?

SD:mad:(the disgruntled one)

I watched it again and the only thing I'm seeing is the generator being towed. Unless I am not seeing something your are. Another observation is the only time you see a life jacket/harness is when she is on the night watch. Unless they don't show everything they had one perfect crossing. I have never done a crossing but when I do, that is the weather I want.

LOL... the magic of video editing...:) Yeah, they probably had some really snotty weather, but they're not going to show that on the finished piece...don't want to scare people away from sailing and have them think it is a dangerous sport.

the gruntled SD. :)

Okay - that makes sense. Again, I don't know enough to know the difference. I was just curious.

Good point about the jackets and harnesses. When I finally leap, I'd like to be able to knead dough for hours on end as well. Then I could make biscuits and chuck 'em at the dolphins.

BTW - dude, I'm gruntled! What's with the frowny face?
