93' KETCH "VADURA" ENROUTE FROM TAHITI TO NEWPORT HARBOR. 1982
This is a fun I-movie trailer I made telling my friends about a 15 minute video my first mate and I made while checking off #27 on my bucket list. I've always been into films and movies starting with the Kelpie voyage to Tahiti in 1959. A friend gave me a wind-up 16mm Bolex camera and 2000 feet of color film and told me to make a movie of our adventure with hopes we could sell it. Never sold it but have a nice record of our voyage and learned everything NOT TO DO with a movie camera. One fun thing that we did was make a four minute film entitled "MUTINY ON THE KELPIE" it's on the same U-Tube channel. Also, lots of sailing adventures aboard my Down East 38 are there...Search "Ernie Minney Videos" if you are having a hard time sleeping some night?
