BFSGeekZone 07 : iPads as Primary Chartplotters II

A sweeping, smack-happy follow-up to our previous video on the subject. Join our new game of “Smack/NoSmack” where you get to judge the tinfoil-hatted forum Chuckleheads for yourself – based on the in-depth facts and evidence I provide. If they are completely-yet-confidently wrong – as they usually are – smack ’em…rhetorically, of course.

Leave your Smack/NoSmack votes and comments below (either here or in on Youtube) for each item! And let me know if you have any comments or suggestions for other great tech for sailors.

SmackTalk01 : Outrunning a Hurricane (The Sport of Idiots)

In this episode I present some invaluable analysis – and a fun game – illustrating the headshaking idiocy of thinking you can ride out or, worse, “outrun” a hurricane in a sailing vessel. There is A LOT of stupid crap out there on the forums and YouTube on this subject. Some of it can actually get you killed.

Well, that’s nothing a little SmackTalk can’t remedy!

Let me know how you fare in the game. And feel free to leave comments below. I’ll probably ignore them but it’s worth a shot.

Oh, and also let me know if you come across something out there in the sailing world that could use a good Smack.
