Final VIDEO–Arrival in Sitka Sound

August 17, 2012

July 12th. After 22 days and 2500 miles of ocean, Murre is finally within Sitka Sound, ringed by snow-capped mountains and the easy motion of trawlers going about their business on the sea. What a sight…

And that’s it for the video logs describing Murre’s passage from Hawaii to Alaska

    Nice set of vids all taken, well done and very well narrated. You mentioned spotting the volcano from far out at sea – do you spot land over a distance by bare eyesight, or are you scanning the horizon with binoculars? If binocs, what sort of power works on a boat? I’d guess low power ‘nocs due to the constant motion of the ship? In the pirate movies you see Jack Sparrow with a really long spyglass…but seriously…what’s the practical limit of magnification on a pitching ship? And I assume hand-held is a must, no tripod… do you sailor types dabble in these newfangled gyroscope stabilized glasses?

      Joan, Thank you for the comment. I’d be honored to be in the Desert Mobile Home News. If can, please send a little warmth this way. Even in the sun, I’m freezing.
