Astro,

Could you expand on the camera mount and how you change the view? Pictures?
That is exceptional video.
Very professional.
Very jealous.

Great Video!! I had alot of trouble with the mainsheet hitting my rods while sailing. How do you deal with that? During the high speed sailing part what were the winds doing then. Thanks
and thanks for sharing

I had similar problems with my mainsheet hitting my rods while sailing, so I came up with this:

Works great. Even added a gimbal pin, so the reel stays upright.

Lose them to the deep like me!! I always leash my rods and have them out on an Aloha Dan type pvc extension...but unlike AD my leashes serve a dual function they keep the extensions in tension out at 45 deg AND they leash the rod..they are a bit short! I have a dread of catching someone on my lures launching so I always unclip the rods and swing them back a bit so they they are out of the way of paddlers. A couple of times I have forgetten to clip em back in...unfurled the sail turned round to let out the reel and WHOAH...wheres my rod?? Well this happened twice first time Divers retrieved the rod and reel next day i was lucky (Divers ALWAYS like finding stuff!!) Next time I got my just deserts and lost reel, rod and lure! I keep telling myself I wont make that mistake again!
