Excellent tips. Thank you. I love to hear the little tips that people have found work for them over the years at sea. this is great example. More please!

I am speaking positively only about the health of the coral in a very small sampling. You are right about over fished reefs. So far, in Madagascar, I have seen very few snapper and grouper or other "edible" fish on the reefs. But that is no different any where else in the world unless one is in a protected area like the "park" in the Raja Ampat, area of Indonesia or the island nation of Pulau, where there are schools of edible fish The wind on the east side of Madagascar appears to be pretty steady trade winds. So far, the winds on the NW side of Madagascar, have a 180 degree predictability. In the morning, the natives can sail out to the ocean then use the afternoon wind shift to sail back.

very interesting! I would have thought Madagascar was as polluted ad over fished as the rest of the world's reefs that aren't protected. Get some video of that. Pretty surprising to hear.
I am looking forward to Madagascar. I hear the daily wind patterns are ideal for sailing the coastline.

Scuba Tony, thanks for watching, and the encouragement. Because of your name, I will mention, we just did some snorkeling on a shallow reef off the N.W coast of Madagascar. This one small area has some of the healthiest coral we have seen in a very long time. Water temp here, 80 F. Across the Indian Ocean, even in remote Chagos, the coral and fish life is a remnant of what it once was. High, 84 degrees F, has done a lot of devastation. Nice temp for the swimmer but bad for the marine life.

Hey Patrick, what camera do you use for your videos? GoPro? What settings do you use for video?

Thanks, Patrick. I need to charge my gopro and figure out what I am going to do with my youtube channel.

Nearly all mobile/hand held, shots are done with a GoPro 5 as that camera has a good built in image stabilization. So most of the galley footage was done with the GoPro. The second camera is a Canon 7D mk2. That gets better quality images. Some scenes were done with the Canon on a tripod set up next to the nav station.The “thumbnail” was taken with the 7D but then reduced to minimum kb which You Tube requires. The image stabilization in the Canon lens is not very healthy so it has to be used with a tripod or held up against a tree or something solid when shooting video. Since I am still new at video making, I have been spending my time trying to figure out how to make the videos technically more appealing in post production….that is when sitting on the computer and putting all the bits of video together. When I get comfortable with that, then I will dig into camera settings. For video, I just use “Automatic”. It does well enough at this point. Of course for stills, it is mostly straight manual or Tv or Av, never any of the presets with the little pictures on the dial. The 7D, though, is heavy and clunky. I think a smaller and lighter camera would be easier to use. I got that 7D, not for video, but for its fast and variable frame rates, and other features, for shooting things, like eagles swooping down to pick up a fish. With my old Canon Rebel T2i, I would get an eagle flying into the frame and the eagle flying away and miss everything in between!

Great video, Patrick. I think you should start a definition list. Galley Strap, Fiddler, etc. :-) As always, great information.

When making the video, Rebecca piped up and said the fiddles are actually called "pot holders". Kids these days. They are fiddles and will always be fiddles, I don't care what the new marine catalog calls them.

my tip Patrick., buy a catamaran lol
Patrick Childress
Patrick Childress - 2 years ago
To upsize a few feet longer, not necessarily wider, would be a nice change. Even, as you know, the ships cat Lilly would like that. Do you have a catamaran you want to sell real cheap?? Thanks for watching.

Nice tips. Is there a boat yard in Mauritius? I’ll have to look up the SSCA survey.
Patrick Childress
Patrick Childress - 2 years ago
Yes there is and there is a very nice South African man named Gary who helps run things. Actually, all the people in the office and yard are very helpful. Google and it comes right up. Taylor Smith Boatyard. They build 45' catamarans at the yard so there should be a good set of skilled people there.

Excellent content as always. I may be in the minority here, but I really feel like the background music is more of a distraction as it makes it harder to hear what you are saying.
Patrick Childress
Patrick Childress - 2 years ago
Thanks, Allan. That is the information I need to know. I am deaf in one ear and have 50% in the other so setting volume is difficult. Rebecca checked the video for me, but she has laser hearing and can easily discriminate sounds. Also, I noticed the volumes might sound okay on my computer then playback differently after everything is rendered into the finished video. In any case, I will make sure all background volumes are lower in future videos.
