Cruising at 160 + knots

This is what cruising at 160 + knots looks like.

You would think that the headland on the video would come in to view a lot quicker than it does if doing that speed

This is about 180 - 200 mph (slower by the ferry), with some decent hi speed parking (for once)!

Well it should be 160 or good as, I only disovered the features of windows and youtube editing tools the tuther day, and thought i'd speed the movie up by clicking x 4 speed, an sticking a nice little Irish jig for good measure, we was averaging 40-42 knts over a 7 mile video clip, it was supposed to be an 8 mile filming section, but the bl@@dy battries ran out on approach, I can upload the original clip at 40 knots but it goes on for ten min, and i thought it looked more fun at x4 movie speed. its like having a digital throttle i recon, trouble is controling vibration, so i'm gonna see if i can mount the camera better next time.
I can see Oscar has got the right idea there, Cracking vid that,

*Shrugs* Our local surface drive inventor, Howard Arneson, can sustain 290 kph out on the San Francisco Bay.

Yeah, but he doesn't have to speed the video up to make it look fast. Faking it in a production boat with a standard outboard takes real skill.

Here' an interesting section of coast not often visited due to mod restrictions, I thought the scenery went better with a more classical soundtrack this time,

If it prevents further posting of daft sped up videos then it's served it's purpose.... :-

Just having a bit of fun old bean!
Two awards in one thread! where on a winner here,
But yes I would agree speeded up movies are a bit daft, especially if you can't control vibration, and new to filming and editing although Oscar's vid was pretty good, lot less vibration, He was much closer to shore, giving a much better sence of speed, At certain parts of my mov i'm over half a mile offshore with not much chop but enough for vibration. Anyway as a relatively new member on here, I thought i'd share my filming experiment, but I shall return to the drawing board for now.

The fun of just being out on the RIB is good enough for me to be fair, but there are some interesting features around this section, the stacks are mainly carboniferous limestone dominant in that area, causing effects like the green bridge of Wales.
Your welcome down anytime.

I have to agree, simply being able to get out onto the water brings a smile every time. Would be nice to try a few other locations just to make a change. Trouble is im 30 seconds from my slip so its just ease to go from the bay. Thanks for the offer. Maybe one day ill convince the wife to take the boat on a holiday....
