If I've done this right, you should get a GoPro tour of the ship.

Fantastic Dave (thats wasn't your farm near the end was it?) only disappointing thing was they never advertised the availability of suspicious veg on board- missed a trick there.  Nod

It's funny Az. When you're up there working it doesn't really feel that high.
It's like you're surrounded by this intricate, sophisticated spiderweb of a machine, and you've got a job to do.

....and then you glance down and you see a tiny little bathtub toy of a boat a mile below you.... Shocked

Hey Dave check it out. Sergei is really hard to understand, but I thought this might be of some interest to you.

Wow, seeing Dave's video again I caught what I had missed before: it was in Pirates of the Caribbean! I love that film (only one stupid line in there, where the main characters with no sailing experience are telling sailors what to do). Where you on the ship for the filming, Dave?

No I wasn't onboard for that one. I required something like a 6 month commitment, sailing down to LA to convert the Lady W into the Interceptor, then through the Panama Canal and over to St Vincent for filming, then back to Washington. Most of that crew has worked cranberry harvest with us though, so I've got all the good stories....

But remember, there was no indication at the time that PotC was going to be anything more memorable than Haunted Mansion (Eddie Murphy) or The Country Bears (Christopher Walken), 2 other Disney films made about the same time to reboot the themepark rides of the same name....

the PotC ride is a classic in itself, I think it inspired the writers.

Very cool that some of the crew helps you out with harvest. I wouldn't mind you posting a few stories you heard about filming.

Forrest, I'll check out the Poltava video next time I get to a high speed connection. At the moment data is being delivered by snails.

Halfy, when our boat was cast as HMS Interceptor there was actually no script written, just a concept, a director, a star, and a deadline. The script was being developed and rewritten daily as they were shooting on location in St Vincent. It could have been a disaster, but in the end I think the spontaneity of it all is part of the magic. I'll try for a story or two later (being careful not to share other people's stories...)

So I was rewatching Master and Commander, and something ("summat") struck me as odd.  When ships are manuevering for position they talk about the "weather gauge", which seems to mean the ship upwind has the advantage.   They even have the upwind ship outrunning the downwind ship.  Doesn't make any sense to me, since it's the same wind until one ship is close enough to block the wind to the other ship, but that would have to be pretty close I'd think.  When ships are miles apart as in the film it doesn't ring true.  Give us the Tea, captain Dave!

My favourite scene in that film is when the poor man is swept into the raging sea after they have had to cut a mast adrift, there is nothing anyone can do to help him and you see him drifting away on a huge wave, with Elgar's Fantasy on a theme by Thomas Tallis playing in the background. Its heartbreaking. Actually this is the most beautiful music I have ever heard.

Ralph Vaughn Williams not Elgar. Williams can make you weep; Elgar's more stodgy. Yes it's one of the scenes that makes for a great and under-appreciated movie.

Listening to the music again I think the cues from Stargate must have been inspired by it.

Looking him up, Vaughan Williams tried to study with Elgar, but the world got lucky and he was turned away and went to Ravel instead. So we got more lush tone poems instead of regimented forms.
