All at sea

We have spent the past week being ‘pinged’ by a Type 45 destroyer.

Ship calibration testing for local company SALT’s innovative sonar equipment has led to some interesting filming on a calm but bouncy-on-a-boat sea.


After spending the first few hours looking at a vessel that kept disappearing out of frame we decided to rig up an anti roll camera holder using a couple of bungee ties and  . . . .  yep it worked.

What didn’t work though was a GoPro fastened with a Magic arm to the sonar rig,  when played back it looked like the (floating) rig was static and the boat and rest of the world was jumping about like a bouncy castle party!

Oh well nothing ventured nothing gained.


Looking forward to the next run
