Another episode of this Great Loop video log. Covers a few miles from Venice, FL to Manisota, much of it during the night. This limits what you can see on the video, but really shows how navigating after dark is an entirely different world… you best know what you are doing 🙂 The video includes some good tips on navigation markers after dark (lowered bridge lighting schemes, etc.)
Venice To Manisota: night navigation, tips, continuing on the cruise of "C-Dawg-E" as we explore America’s inland waterway.
This is the home page of Capt. Matt Mattson, who has been producing these nice Great Loop video logs. He has done some other music and videos (aviation based, etc.) and I wanted to point out the home for this work.
This man is doing the Great Loop in a 22′ C-Dory, the <span class="postdetails">C-Dawg-E. Sounds like fun!
The difference is that he is making a video with details as he goes… its more of a "training" video than a site-seeing or travel log type show. He’s got good advice on navigation markers, things to watch for, etc.
The first video is the "intro" while the next is episode one.
