Over a year ago I purchased a "project boat". Not realizing how many projects were in this boat, I probably wouldn't have moved on it...but it is coming along! Here are some pictures, from simple greasing the winches to repairing wet balsa in the bottom. New hatches, new lines, new clutches, new radio and rewiring, patching holes...fairing the bottom, new bottom...time to go sailing!
Pro's and Con's using a powered gimbaled mounts:
Pro's: Smoother, more accurate video leveling correction,
3 axis leveling.
Con's: Fragile, needs battery shortens usage time, made for specific camera's, not always water proof, high maintenance. limited mounting options, usually more expensive.
Pro's and Con's using our Self-leveling mounts:
Pro's: Easy to use and maintain, no battery, allows for different cameras of varying weights, mounts on rail mast spreader, wherever!, Waterproof, strong, will take abuse. Inexpensive.
Con's: Not as accurate, slight delay in leveling (due to dampening). Single axis leveling.

When racing, each year we want to improve our skills and speed. The least expensive way to do this is to video tape your races for post race analysis. Keeping your video level is important for analyzing the effects of sail trim and heel!!
Our newest mount is affordable and easy to use!
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have!
If you order a DAL1000 today before 2:00pm central time, I will ship in the lower 48 US states overnight for free!! Last chance!!
Have a Merry Christmas, great Holidays and a Happy New year!!
Our self-leveling camera mounts are competing with the powered gyro mounts, which are compelling... BUT...they demand a power source to power them, also, they are specific to the weight of the camera and even the GoPro hand held gyros are dependent on the camera without the water proof case. Also, very important, they are very fragile.
So keeping life simple, capturing level video, you can simply add your camera to DAL1000 with your waterproof case, protecting it, while capturing quality level video, and, not worry about damage to the mount. Check out our newest mount! Affordable, simple....put your video camera on it, hit record, and not worry!
Feel free to contact me with questions!
Our newest mount will be $50.00 off starting Cyber Monday, tomorrow, through Christmas...don't wait any longer!!

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have!!
