See the attached cloudscape. The sea and sky predominate the image with a sliver of land in the middle. I was using the vOICe in hopes of being able to see a whale. No luck. Either the camera did not pick up the whale since it swum mostly under water or I was not looking in the right direction. Another possibility is that there was too much sky in the image so I would need to narrow the view by using the blinders option from the command line.
For anyone trying any synthetic vision device while whale watching, whales mostly appear as blobs in the sea. You may have a better chance of seeing dolphins but that is still very difficult. I had the vOICe at 2-fold speed and no luck. I did try 4-fold speed but I lost too much detail so reduced speed.
However, I was not disappointed. Looking at the sea from a moving boat is a fascinating exercise especially when you can see the arc like ripples the boat makes. The sea and clouds also provide much visual information. Another diverting exercise is to try and see landmarks like small islands as you cruise past them.
My compliments to Captain Gunnar of the Andrea for the wonderful tour of his bridge and engine room and for answering all my questions. May your Volvo Penta TMD engines always run trouble free and roar like they did during our trip!
