When I first came on board here at OffCenterHarbor we were working hard to get enough videos completed to launch the site, and while I thought boats sounded interesting, I really didn’t have any ‘leanings’ toward them to speak of. I was a video editor for hire and this seemed like a cool gig. That beginning is all a blur now, and with 100 videos to choose from, considering which three videos stand out as my favorites is a daunting task. But as editing has happily taught me: once you get started it just sort of flows.

Though I didn’t continue for lack of a boat, a busy schedule, and letting life in general get in the way, I always knew I would someday make it back to the water. Every time I look at this video it fires up that warm feeling and I start thinking about rowing again. (Incidentally, this was the first video I worked on here.)
