Humber Fun

A short (ish) video from my new (ish) Contour HD camera.

I love this piece of kit and try to use it lots....

This is from a trip to Swanage from Poole then back into the harbour and up the Wareham river:



Lovely day enjoyed by all - nice mixture of charging around and chilling on the river.

great footage, well edited, good to see elsewhere in the country. what software do you edit it with?

Excellent choice of boat is it a 6.3? whats the 3.0 lump like, does she not ride a little stern heavy?

we have the 175, but is the lighter block.

(I know we all take our own risks, but you guys were flying and no life jackets noted )

Hi Paul

Glad you liked it!

I use Windows Movie Maker - simple and quick...

The boat is a 6.3 Ocean Pro.

The 200 doesn't feel too stern heavy really, it pops onto the plane quickly and shows 51 knots on the GPS regularly. The only criticism is that its a little light and flighty with just me on board.

You're right on the life jacket thing although I do insist we all wear them if it's a little lumpy.

Nick

51knots is 58mph. We get 50mph two up with 140l of fuel on board.

You are shifting! Nice boat. We love ours.

(I know it's difficult keeping everyone LJ'd up, especially when it's lads 20-40 in and out of the water anyway due to skiing etc. Some of my mates just won't have it when it's sunny and nice.

I got a shock 2 seasons ago though. my dad was sat on the front of our SR 5.4 lighting his pipe, flat calm like a mirror, sunny. Slowed to 2 knots or so for the v shaped waves off a cruiser, then opened her up a bit. Didn't notice the rolling waves created behind the cruiser and dropped in to the first trough, then immediately rose up and bounced my dad off the tube. I'd Immediately backed off, as we came up out of the trough, but it was too late, split second and he went in the drink in front Hit him with the hull and then he came up on the side. V.V.V. Lucky. No life jacket worn for 50+ years. He now wears one all the time.

You just never know when it's coming.)

Keep the footage coming!!!

You'll have the self-appointed Rib.Net police after you for a life jacket infringement
