No shunting footage, yet.   Rudolph reports that Blind date shunts pretty well, but takes a bit of getting used to. Jan, the owner is putting together a professionally filmed dvd, which should include it.

I sailed on Rare Bird a while ago, it shunted pretty well, the slowest part was switching over the wheels.  Took about 30 seconds.  With the next generation of rudders hanging off the beam, this will not be a problem.

  The video is great -- thanks for posting the link.  It's wonderful to see the big proas finally on the water.

  Can you repost the link for the sailing pictures?  The link didn't lead anywhere.
