First time to use new Gopro

Below is a link to a youtube video that I posted last night.
Last saturday 6/18 was the first time I have used it and I got some interesting video first time out.
I was lucky but others were not.
This was on Galveston Bay coming into Seabrook Marina late saturday afternoon.

Tad unnerving I bet as you kept motoring towards the belly of the beast not knowing if it would hold up long enough to tie up!

The best thing about Texas is the weather. If you don't like it now give it an hour or so and it's bound to cycle through to something you do like. Cool video and nice looking boat : thumb:

Nice video....a go pro may be in my future when I see nice stuff like that.

We had a bad one come through Cape May yesterday...had tornado warnings although they rarely developed near the coast when the ocean temps are still this low...below 70 plus.

A few places reported gusts into the 80s, many more in the 60s. Rarely do we get them like the one in the video....thankfull...I guess our good news is that they are usually frontal storms and the sou'wester preceeding them drives most people off the water earlier with gusty 15 to 25 knot winds.

There is nothing quite like being secured to a dock when it turns snotty. In fact it is almost fun. You must live right!

Wow!!
It reminded me of a saying I heard recently - "It is better to be on land wishing you were at sea than to be at sea wishing you were on land."

Did all your canvas survive unharmed? It seemed to be taking it all well.

Nice job with the GoPro. I got one but have not used it yet. I need to take it out and play with it. The GoPro.

The calm before the storm. Nice vid.

Have you tried Go pro studio to edit your videos?

great video ! the storm sure blew up quickly

The go pro is a great camera, you will love the editing software it comes with once you play around with it a while.

Not only was your timing great, you did not even have to wash the boat. Nice vid and nice boat docking.

I tried to edit my post above. I probably should have posted my vid elsewhere, apologies to the OP, didn't mean to jack your thread. If anyone wants to see mine, clik the link, thanks.

Nice 'little' tug. She seems to handle well. At first I thought the camera angle made few it look like a toy...

You got lucky. If that would have hit whilst motoring in the marina you would have spent some time white knuckling trying not to hit anything. Did you have a radar picture? Many have lost the game of "trying to beat the storm to the airport"......
