The weather was not the best but still an enjoyable blast to Yarmouth via The Needles for lunch

Here is a short GoPro flim taken by my Hero 7

Great video Andre. The sea was quite lumpy wasn't it. That would have been too much for us. 10 minutes is ok, and fun, but not the hour it would have taken us to get back.

At least we did get out into the Solent for a play in quite choppy water but we decided that heading further afield in worsening conditions wasn't a good idea.

Yes I agree you made the right decision especially since the conditions got worse on the way back. We shot across to the mainland and ran along the coast towards Southampton waters. The conditions there were much better as you will have seen from the video clips. Perhaps the next time the conditions will be more favourable

How was this filmed, it looks like there's movemeant in the camera even though it's very steady. I've fixed cameras on tripods at the stern before which give a simular but different look.

The Go Pro attachment is stuck firmly to a flat stainless steel plate which also accommodates the radar scanner . I will take a photo the next time I am on the rib

correct as at low speed with Hero 4 silver attached in the same place there would be a lot of vibrations

Hi Lee, I should have called you that we were coming. Next time for sure otherwise we will catch up in the spring. Grey Mist will not be put away for the winter. This winter she is under roof at SDS

heading towards Yarmouth / The Needles approx 29 /32 knots but on the way back crossing the Solent at Yarmouth the speed was significantly reduced due to sea conditions and also I wanted to give my passengers a comfortable crossing. This you can see on the GoPro clip. On the mainland side the speed was increased to 28/30 knots and 30/35 in Southampton waters
