Nice vid Richard but you definately need a FGT style built in camera and hard drive thingy as seen on the 'whoops there go my strainers' Leviathon vid. In fact mebbe two - one on the A frame pointing forward and one on the console pointing back at the crew. Bit of editing and Bobs your mothers brother

The shots with "My Pleasure 2" to our port side are going around Selsey Bill. In the last clip, observe carefully and guess what electronic device that RIB has fitted... (codprawn? )

I'll add some more clips tomorrow, maybe some music!
NICE video - just wish you had put up a bigger(not longer)clip so the higher quality would do it justice - definitely your best filming so far!!! Practice makes perfect!!!

What electronic device??? Electronic hair!!!! Seriously though do you mean the RIB you were ON or the one you were filming??? Video quality not high enough to tell really - nice large plotter on the boat you were on - the other boat either had a radome fitted or possibly a cyclops radar reflector???

Cheers codprawn - I'm limited by the quality of the camera at the moment - just using my digital camera (Canon A40) in movie mode! The electronic device is on the other boat - the clue is the driver's position at the clip. And yes radar is fitted on the other boat (rude not to really, with a Raymarine system!). Our own chartplotter looks big enough until you start to us it in the way we did this weekend - 5" mono chartplotters aren't great for finding your way across unfamiliar areas with complex sandbanks as it's difficult to see which side of the depth contour line is the shallow side. Also had to turn off all the contours and screen text when we did race safety to see all the course waypoints clearly.

Alan, I think Mr FGT has some excellent video treats in store for you with the set-up he's planning for the next "oops my strainers work now" video, very similar to what you've described.

You can't see our chartplotter on that clip! What you see is a text-only GPS!

Nice one, 'eagle-eyes' Harry!
