    While sea trialing Cheoy Lee's 76' Alpha Flybridge yesterday, yacht photographer Shaw McCutcheon flanked us for a few exterior shots. Few things are cooler then hanging from a harness in a heli. He may have best job in yachting, but anytime you can make a living while doing what you love, consider yourself lucky. I do!

    Making a career out of your passion is also a formula for success.

    I love the shots, but has anyone else ever experienced being photographed at close quarters without communication or warning? Scared the crap out of a lot of boaters around here since it had never been seen before. Lots of low flights, flights below bridges, close quarters (as illustrated here) and many calls to the CG complaining. I expect this is a more significant issue in So. Fla. than here in the PaxNW.
