KTL West Country Rivers 2 Fal, Tresillion and Truro in 144 x 256

Dear Sailors of small boats,

This is the second  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.


 Part i is mainly about the last fleet of sail fishing boats in the UK.   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 is split into two 30 minute episodes - each of those will be free for the 144 x 256 low bandwidth versions and are on the right hand side as KTL 14.

If you want the high bandwidth version of this film then this paypal link will take you to the 4K version of this page in three clicks.   If you lose the page, or accidentally close it , then you should be able to find it in your browser history. The 4K page has a 4K version to stream from viemo or three different sizes to download it in a range of different sizes.

I am reasonably confident that the mechanics of this idea will work - it gets you to the Hd version of the film in about three clicks. It is not as easy as youtube - sorry about that. It is  easier than stuffing DVDs into Jiffy bags.

Please email me on [email protected] if the mechanics of this fail.  I am an old bloke and coding is meticulous and extremely dull work.

If all you want to do is to find out what happened then here is the full 15 minute part one as  a low bandwidth version - it looks good(ish) on a smart phone.

If this works I will buy a warm boat for scotland

    Holy smokes! I managed to download West Country Rivers 1, the link got me to a page where I chose the resolution and everything worked fine. When I tried to do the same thing for 2,3 and 4 Paypal took my money (I think) but I never saw a page on which to choose the resolution, never got a download and am wondering why. Any clue? I assume I am clicking the right page button.

    Hope the 3 bucks got to you all right; I Don’t mind, the price you put on these things is too low anyway. Only 3 bucks but I hate to see it scooped up by Paypal or ???

    Thanks and please forgive my confusion. I believe the problem for me was that I tried to download several (2,3 &4) all at the same time. Was not then transferred back to video page to choose the resolution. I just now successfully downloaded -2 going thru the procedure as you describe and found after I completed the Paypal transaction that I was directed back to the Vimeo page with the full range of resolutions available. Note here that I too am an old bloke, many years older than you, but really without an excuse for this mistake since I spent much of my productive life working with computers. In any case, hope this note helps anyone who might have a similar problem. Fair winds

      ah but Hank,, the computers we struggled with were a different kettle of fish – do you remember SCSI and jumpers –

      my first gigabyte cost me £700.

      The weird thing is that as the hardware has got siimpler the software has become ever more capricious

      my daughter now works in UX … user experience…..my website makes her groan about usability but she is also astonished at people are prepared to invest their time in navigating this truly terrible website – and then end up paying for digits –

        Thanks for the comment. I too have struggled with earlier versions and hence cannot quite understand others who seem to think what we have now is cumbersome. I like this method of ‘paying for digits;’ much easier than trying to remember when I last made a contribution and if it was enough. Keep up the good work.
