It was a ton of fun and I really appreciate all of the jobbers that helped make it happen. Thanks Saphireangel for making the video. And thanks to Wutai for the challenge...really wish you could have joined this EPIC Conga Line.

I took quite "a few" screen shots (half-filled my desktop, lol), but will only post some of the best ones. My favorite is the "whoosh" backwards.

Sloop Test:
7 boats approach the wall

3 off the board and still going

5 off the board!

Baglagh Test:
Eager attacked and WHOOSH!

6 off and Eager Tentacle wants to join the Conga line

11 boats off the board

13 boats off the board!

We keep moving forward, LOL

Eager Tentacle awaits our return

Eager wreaks havoc and we Whoosh back

Right turn and trip ended in massive carnage


Sorry, I didn't get a screen shot of Eager going slap-happy on us as we all whooshed back onto the board...I was LAUGHING TOO HARD!

It was AWESOME!!!!

Edits= typos and missing pic titles, lol

Anyone interested in the video.... it's here.

Love it. Also love how it just decayed into a horrible messy tentacle slaughter when only half the group turned right. =P So glad I thought of just pushing out straight. =)

I'm rather intriged by the way the wind-push gets transmitted back to the last person in line, regardless of how many of the ships are on the board, like some sort of giant aquatic Newton's Cradle. One wonders whether that'd continue happening if the group manages a perfect synchronsed turn - can people be pushed back broadside-on? Also, that tentacle definitely entered the safe zone at one point...

Just one thing... didn't Vangelis compose Chariots of Fire?

Welcome. :) I had fun editting the video also.... except sleep got sacrificed.

Oh.... did he? Uhoh. I'd change the credits for the soundtrack if I could, but in my sleep deprived state, when it asked me if I wanted to save the "project", I clicked no, and instantly realised my mistake! :(

Maybe I'll redo the video again later in the week and change that. I'll put that under the Youtube description for now.

Your tempting me, ROFL!

The right turn was a last minute idea for me in hopes of a great ending to our adventure. Either a beautiful synchronized turn or, more likely, total mayhem. The line crumbling and everyone whooshing back into range of the waiting tentacle was hilarious.

Go for the eggs in one line, like that.

Good one, but not sure it would work for several reasons:
1. The need for extreme coordination. Completely coordinating just 7 boats can be difficult even if they are all using Skype or another voice chat. One out-of-sync boat and the line crumbles (you saw what happened when the boats in our line didn't turn together).
2. The boat closest to the board would become damaged from rocks (and likely tents) and sink before the line reached the board's deep end. Depending on the board, several boats could be sunk and the off board capability might be lost before the eggs are reached. Adding these boats back into the line would prove more difficult because the line would be further from the safe zone. They need to safely make their way up the board and then find a spot that is free of rocks and tents so they can try to maneuver back into the line.
And the biggest problem...
3. After disbanding the line to go thru the winds and pools on the board to obtain the egg(s), it is doubtful there would be enough room in the deep end to safely reform the line so that the boat(s) with egg(s) are off the board for protection on the return trip.

Of course, if someone does manage to pull this off and even get one egg to the safe zone, I am SURE that there would be changes made to the kraken lair to prevent exploitation of the soft walls again.

Awww thank you mates for your positive feedback. It's much appreciated. :)
And I'm glad everyone enjoyed the video.

I'm not sure if I'll make more piratey videos, if there's an event which is exciting and fun and challenging to record for pirate history, I can look into making piratey videos for that. :) Be sure to poke me if there's something exciting planned.
