    My Rear view cam in the ocean

    I was getting frequent exhaust temp warnings on our dana point to catalina run.
    It happened once before but then went away. While cleaning up after the ride & flushing, my ski was making BIG noise from the drive line...OH NO! I'm thinking pump bearings or PTO bearing. I found it to be the clamp came off the PTO boot & the bearing was running up & down the shaft area & letting the shaft move more too. I felt the vibration but didn't know what it was while out there so I said "EFF IT" let it die! Well, it made it back. The result of this is what I believe caused my temp warnings.

    Here's a clip of my rear view cam, I had the mic inside my engine compartment specifically for the motor so I can hear whats going on....It told me what I needed to know. The 1st 15 seconds or so we are getting clear of the breakers & traffic & then you can tell when we bust lose! Listen carefully to my motor...What do you hear? At the end when we stopped is when I got the 1st warning.

    This is a 3rd generation conversion clip so the quality is not quite as good as the original.

    Thanks.

    I'm using a sony 480 line bullet cam plugged into a samsung scx-105L
    It's the only cam I have that will record at 708x420 @ 850 - 900kbps. My other cams record at 640x480 @ 450kbps so the footage is cleaner. This is the 1st time using the cam & I've had it for several yrs & I just discovered I can use it with my bullet cam.

    I'm going to use this as the main cam from now on. 1.25 hrs battery life & 2gb of footage at full resolution isn't bad.

    Hmm, i'll have to listen to that one.. The rev limiter started hitting after about 10 minutes into the clip. After that it was hitting way too often. Plus there was salt spray all over the place from the CR area.

    Me? Hiding?... LOL
    Haha, on the split screen start I cut it short because the rear cam went white for 10 minutes because the sun in direct line with the cam & blinded it. The front cam start is still there isn't it?
