Look, Up in the Sky!
Drones and GoPro are the latest craze on water and land. They are changing our world faster than we know. I recently read a story about a sub $500 pocket drone that should be hitting the market soon. Some folks love these things (owners) and others hate them (invasion of privacy). I think they are pretty cool. But say you are in an anchorage in the tropics and there are a few boats there. Someone puts up his drone to come over and check you out. Not cool.
Here is a new toy to take with you on your cruise.
Stopped by the Lat38 crew party last night and met some nice folks. One character I met had sailed the world twice and had his boat there. He told me stories of his travels and that he advocated carrying a shotgun on his boats. He had used it several times when intruders came on board. The results were not pretty. Anyway, had a great time and ran into some old and new friends.
