Dear Sailors of small boats,
This is the first of four films I made about a winter I spent on the Fal - that was just after buying Lily M and before moving her to scotland.
This one runs to 15 minutes long.
Part two is about the upper reaches of the Fal and that is just over nine minutes long.
Part 3 is about a 20 mile trip to the Fowey - that one is 19 minutes long and finally
Part 4 which is the trip to the Helford - that is 12 minutes long.
The links to the low bandwidth versions are in the navigation on the right hand side of the page. KTL 13.
The delivery trip journey, now labelled as KTL 14, is split into two 30 minute episodes -
they all look and sound goodenough on a phone
If you want a slightly more immersive experience then the high bandwidth and downloadable versions of this film are available just three clicks away.
If you watch this on a big TV it is good enough to make you feel queesy.
this paypal link will take you to the 4K version of this page. You can leave comments on both pages.
If you lose the page, or accidentally close it , then you should be able to find it in your browser history. Feel free to email it to a friend or yourself so it will be in your inbox. Feel free to download the film at whatever resolution you want. Feel free to put the films on memory sticks. Feel free to copy them for your friends.
If you spot a horrible glitch in one of the 4K versions please let me know and I will re-open the file and get rid of the snag.
I am reasonably confident that the mechanics of this idea will work and it does seem better for the planet than stuffing DVDs into jiffy bags and flyting them to small boat sailors in Arkansas or Adelaide.
Please email me on [email protected] if the mechanics of this fail. I am an old bloke and coding is the dullest thing I have ever done. Meticulously copying and pasting acres of meaningless strings of letters, digits and punctuation marks is a truly terrible way to spend a day.
If this works I will buy a warm boat for scotland
