    Default Last Sail Of The Season VIDEO

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulSiOzZ9rjU

    Give it some time the video is still uploading.

    Moorings get pulled this weekend
    First one in Last one out.

    Two dialog mistakes in the video. It's not Bear Mountain its Breakneck Ridge that all the stone for the Brooklyn Bridge was quarried from also I think I say Jan 8th not Nov. 8 once. Other than that enjoy. It took a loooooooong time to get the compression program to get all the sound to work. I had to compress it about 4 times and it takes 2hrs each time I need a better compression program than iSquint™ freeware.

    Anyway enjoy, it's a bitter sweet video. What a beautiful day today and yesterday were.

    In September, as part of the New York state funded program Dr. Steven Chillrud led a team of 15 Lamont scientists to collect over 150 new samples from Palisades north to Cold Spring. This sampling program collected 120 two-meter cores, which are like tape-recorders, capturing the river’s history. The sampling recovered material as young as last week and as old as several thousand years. "World’s End," so-named because it is the Hudson’s deepest point, is more than 200 feet deep. Until the team recovered cores of fluffy mud it had been assumed that World’s End was a rocky conduit through which the river flowed, leaving little sediment trace. Identifying new sediment deposits is important for understanding the accumulation of sediments within the Harbor of New York and the plan for dredging this material.

    Think we could get enough donations together to send Meerkat to Joe to sail and make a movie next spring?

    While I wait for the video to down load on "Vile Up", which, for 8+ minutes may take an hour or more, I'd like to extend an offer to Tidbit. "Hey Girl, Wanna fly south for the winter? Come stay with me and I'll take real good care of ya. By spring you won't unnerstan' a word ole Yankee Joe is sayin'. What'd'ya say? Wanna be a snowbird?"

    Thanks Joe, each video is better then the last. Are you going to continue them through the winter when you are doing maintenance on the boats?

    Joe it has been a good journey with you, from your first shakey vid to
    this degree of quality. Simplifying your imagery is making all the difference.

    If you took the best footage from all your vids this season and compiled them into one trip along the Hudson, it would make for an extremely fine small docco. Thanks for your time Mate, the reason why I like this Forum.

    I still like the footage in the pub ... the best. The bloke in the green and white sports gear is my impression of Cold Springs on Hudson.

    I like the name of your river too. Uncle Henry visited the Americas a few years ago and he is still MIA. But obviously he is naming things well.

    Awww man thanks LarryP. Promise to start my season with a sail on Antigua - hey what about next weekend

    Oh by the way for all those new WoodenBoat Forum Film ™ fans I think we have one more sailing video coming your way tomorrow. We still have to sail her to Cold Spring and haul her out and pull her mast. Should make for some exciting footage.

    Also great idea clancy I can do some maintenance videos from the barn during the winter

    Very nice!

    Thanks Joe,
    I am finnishing the shed today and took a break for breakfast.
    Watching your Vid is awesome today, the weather was great and though a short season it was a fitting tribute to end on.
    I can't wait until your the first in next year. Better be a vid for that.
