    Just fabulous footage. I agree that the images flash by and hope the incredible filming talent
    will someday put a full length movie together blending all the best bits with the same sort of narration and music score. Remember the feeling you got watching “The Endless Summer” for the first time? You can call it “The Endless Wooden Boat Show”. And please…..make it endless!

    The power boat at 00:14 is absolutely gorgeous! Can you supply any info on her?

    Thanks so much, Steve. Even if I can’t I can still get the picture. Great picture.

    I love the beautiful photography and the mission of Off Center but this is way too short. The boats and scenes flash by like a commercial, tempting one with a glimpse, without a second to linger, to really see what we are looking at, to note details, to sense the experience of being there. The contrast of a vision of a former era, one slowed down and savored is lost in a hallucination when one would like a deep breath. We never heard the correct pronunciation of the name Ngatira.

      It’s “Nah-ti’-ra”. And thanks for the kind words and the orders to return to New Zealand to film up-close videos of many more of these boats. 2019!
