Hi All,

Going through some old video clips I came across an old short film of my late father in law promoting a stabilizer system for motor yachts. He is the blond guy. I thought it might be amusing for some. Not much use for my small sailing boat but I know it's a topic of interest to some others.

Thanks for uploading that. Great movie! Pneumatically actuated fins too. My brother's boat (with vosper fins) still has a control box like that with a tiny gyro to sense the boats's roll

Great film! Couldn't hear the commentary on the iPad but loved the 'cup of tea' (complete with saucers) illustration of the value of stabs! Oh, and the everyday boating clothes of the skipper of course! :)
Now where is my yachting cap....? :)
