Batfish videos

I must say, the videos found on your website ( http://www.ussbatfish.com ) are really impressive.  I don't know why you guys didn't mention them already!

http://www.ussbatfish.com/video_2.html

In that 2nd video, you get to see forum member Rick Dennis (username "USSBatfish" here) as he tells you all about the Batfish.

Very cool guys!   ;)

I don't know...I thought maybe everyone had already seen them.  I put them on the website about 2-3 months ago.  One of the local TV stations has done a few shoots at the BATFISH and I'm needing to contact them to see if I can get the footage.

Hopefully starting in May, I am going to start working on a video tour / history DVD.  I got some ideas running around in my head, but have a hard time catching them.  I don't have much more than that, but I can't really start until I'm done with my night class and my evenings free up once again.  Oh yeah, will be updating the virtual tour and tour booklet...finishing the 40mm...etc.  Going to be a fun and busy summer.

Did you see this post I made about the Silversides DVD and photo CD?

Yes.  I have the Virtual Tour CD.  I also have on loan from Rick the DVD...haven't had time to watch it yet.

I hope to do something siimilar...depending on my video shooting/editing skills and my ability to master the software.

Thanks.  For the first few years, that's all we did...pull panels, strip them...repaint and replace.  Anything that we could get loose was redone.  At one time, I had taken EVERY panel, drawer, etc... from the yeomans office and had it it my garage.

I wasn't married at the time so it was OK   ;D
