Iron Lady Sea Trial Video #2

While we were busy marveling at how well Iron Lady handled the previously mentioned vigorous sea state, her owner, Pete Rossin, shot a couple of minutes of video.

We picked up the files this morning and you can view the unedited video by clicking here. The quality is amazing and the camera work very steady considering the conditions.

    What I found most interesting was the casual conversation in the background, almost like they were having cocktails…hardly the subject matter one would expect during gale force conditions!!! A remarkable testament to your design!!!

    Hi David:
    We didn’t know Pete was filming and were discussing a particularly nasty piece of ocean north of the Falkland Islands.

    The first thing I noticed watching my first FBP 64 video was – no windshield wipers. Rainex might be interested in an endorsement. It does work well. On Iron Lady trial # 2 video,what would you guess the pitch changes were? There did not seen to be much roll.

    Hi John:
    Rainex does work well, and Iron Lady could have used a second coat. We have not calculated the pitch change, but on average maybe three degrees with ten degrees on really steep waves.
