Just wanted to let everybody know we made a huge step in the bringing together of the East Coast Operators. Ben Seminoff, owner/operator @ Top Hat Productions sponsored an outing today. Mike O'Shea, Alan Melbrecht and myself got together on Ben's wife's boat for a fishing trip. The west coast guys get together every once and a while, now the East Coast guys have had there first outting. It was a good day for all involved, especially Ben who had the only keeper of the day. A whopper of a flounder coming in at 18". Needless to say there was a lot of steadicam talk. We are thinking of passing the hat to everyone to get a bigger boat and keep this up. Maybe with a few more ops next time. All donations can be sent to me and we will really get this yatch thing worked out. Who knows maybe we could boat trip over to the left coast and bring both factions together at last.

Originally heard in Curse Of The Black Pearl
" You see that ship? We're going to appropriate that ship."

" You mean, steal it?? "

" No, I mean appropriate it. Appropriate. It's a nautical term. "

I'm in. Even if I cannot get on the boat, I love the idea.

--adjusts jaunty cap, wanders off to examine ship's gimbal. I know why youse guys went for a boat over say, a go-kart.

Boats have gimbals. ;)
