He got some great photos and I think he is part of the America's cup experience people or working with.
There are a few others doing marine photography, we occasionally get them out with us on events when we are doing safety and mark laying, http://www.fotoboat.com
is the link to them, often they will have a peli case and a I think its Tom has a goretex jacket sleeve modified with a rubber seal on to the lens and the remains of the Jacket is modified to cover the camera but still allowing him to use it.
