Video under sail

We've uploaded a short video as a test, that we took from Marcy's
cockpit a few weeks ago. Hopefully it won't take long to open. If it works well we will post some longer videos.

Life here in Pago Pago continues - we wait for mail, and we deal with the other yachts in the anchorage dragging anchor in the periodic wind storms. The anchor holding is poor, and the bottom is sprinkled with debris that catches on anchors. Its a bad combination that results in sailboats careening out of control through the bay. We sometimes feel like a bumper in a pinball machine! Our own anchor has held well, which
may mean that it is hooked on debris.

Between wind storms and trips to the post office, we're getting lots of projects done so our time here has been well spent. Our steering has been overhauled, boom gooseneck and vang lubricated and improved with plastic washers, and we bought an inexpensive gas generator to top off the batteries.

The video looked great. Would like to see more under sail and longer. Any chance of an underwater video? What camera are you using for the underwater shots.
