I've mentioned several times in the past that I've met some pretty cool people since I've started living aboard. I've also met some pretty cool people as part of this blog. Britton and Dieter from Diving Into Cruising fit both of those categories. In addition to their talents as scuba dive masters and at restoring their Newport 40 Ketch, they seem to be very good at taking, editing, and producing videos.
Back when we did our renaming ceremony for Rover, they shot some video of the occasion and yesterday sent me the completed video. I think they did an awesome job (especially given the subjects), going well above and beyond anything I could have imagined.
So, here is the video of the renaming ceremony courtesy of my friends at Diving Into Cruising...
As you can see, lots of champagne was offered to the gods of the seas and the winds to help ensure Rover is safe within their realm.
While some may question the effectiveness of our ceremony given the engine trouble we had a few days later, the fact that it was all resolved with a $40 part and some new engine coolant (instead of a new engine) tells me we must have done something right.
