Thomas G. Thompson video taken from a drone

Here is a cool video taken by a drone late last summer onboard the Thomas G. Thompson (on which I sail as Able Seaman).

The video of the ship at the dock is at the University of Washington in Portage Bay (Lake Washington).

The video showing us backed up to a buoy is off La Push, WA while deploying a scientific mooring (after we pulled it for maintenance approx 10 days earlier.

The video of the ship in the narrow channel is in Seattle’s Ship Canal and Ballard Locks which leads from Puget Sound to Lake Washington.

The video was made by Paul Sharpe who used a homemade drone. The drone was made from a Tupperware container.

Here is the video:
