    As a reaction to the amazon drone delivery video, someone finally presents with a convincing and critical use of drones: Beer Delivery.

    This is video from about 2000-2001 of the then 104-year-old schooner Ernestina sailing from New Bedford to Boston through the Cape Cod Canal. It showed up online this week uploaded by someone who was on the trip. I don't remember this particular trip, but we did that run quite frequently in those years. This is the coolest boat I've ever sailed on, and the closest crew I ever sailed with. Despite the cheesy sepia-tone, this was really nice to see.

    I've never had the pleasure of meeting you, so I have to ask, do you appear in the video? Would that have been a day excursion, or something longer? I also have to ask, when they were opening the small hatches and peering in with flashlights, what would they have been looking for?

    Holy fucking coincidence Batman!

    Almost immediately after posting here I moseyed on over to the "What are you listening to?" thread. Totally randomly I was listening to a Sublime song. When I searched that particular song on YouTube this is what I got:

    (screenshot):

    Sublime screenshot 1-27-14.jpg

    The 5th video down the right hand side is a 1947 short on the Effie M Morrisey (Ernestina). Is that the same freakin' Ernestina? (And I also now wonder if Morrus is related somehow...)

    I'll be damned.

    Here's the video:



    Why the hell was that video lodged between a bunch of Sublime videos?

    Yeah, I was actually surprised how much I was in it. I'm the guy steering through most of it.

    Very long day. At the time, Ernestina did educational programs for students throughout New England, but when the boat needed to go from one port to another and there was no student program planned, they would open it up for the non-profit's supporters to come along.

    Water. Every hour someone tours the boat, checking the bilges to make sure the boat's not taking on water, or on fire or having any other problems.

    Yes, that's the same boat. She really has an amazing history. She ran numerous expeditions to the Arctic in the '20s and '30s, and did reconn work for the U.S. Navy in the Arctic during WWII. She was renamed Ernestina when she was bought a Cape Verdean after the war; ran transatlantic trade from Cape Verde to New England for another 20 years.

    Youtube tracking what you'd just watched? No connection to Sublime that I know of.
