More "pirate" stuff but this time a little friendlier :P
New series on Spike TV airs tonight at 10.00pm Pacific time. "Deadliest warrior ."
Hopefully, they are due to show a Pirate episode, that was filmed here in San Diego aboard the Revenue cutter "Californian".
I was the camera boat operator in my XSRIB 550 and spent most of the day alongside the Californian, while they shot the fight scenes and "broadsides"
Not sure just how much of the sailing footage will be used; but probably only a few seconds here and there.
At one point I was pacing the Californian ,just a few feet apart while the Pirates hurled abuse and curses
Hope they keep the "broadsides" in; as the camera guy jumped a mile when they let loose
We were pretty close though
A lot of the Maritime museum volunteers were extras as Pirates ,so will be interesting to see.
Glad there were no Navy Seal teams around when we shot this one !
