Hi Stoo
It is filmed at Schat Hardings headquarters in Rosendal, Norway. This was the clip i was originally looking for at the start of this thread, well done to Bigwuz for finding it.
And yes, it is a beutiful country, im lucky to have spent quite some time sailing up and down the coast through the fjords and would highly recomend it....
From what i remember though (i was young the last time i went there) your country isnt too shabby either?

Simon

As per the pic in post 8, the boat is hooked on (not easy to manoeuvre astern & hold position in a swell & hook on), winched up to the davit head, the davit is then swung inboard,the restow is then similar mechanically to putting a garbage skip on to the back of a truck. The boat is then hooked on to its release hook & the recovery pendant is slackened & is (should) be removed leaving the boat ready in free fall launch mode.

Yes, we have a lot of very pretty areas. I'm a sucker for anyplace where mountains meet the ocean. I am heading out to Whistler, BC in a couple of weeks to visit my son who lives there (with The Warden and my youngest). The drive up to Whistler from Vancouver is beautiful. But then so is the trip along the west cost of Newfoundland. And the east cost too. And around Cape Breton....

And then there's Tobermory.., No mountains but some pretty nice cliffs!

It's a shame there is no way of instigating a rib holiday exchange program...
