We were heading down the river almost to the locks going to the air show when this small helicopter started circling us for about a minute -he was taking photos and/or video of us cruising in our boat. I am assuming it was some business who takes aerial photos and sells them to you. Couldn't make out the name on the helicopter. Did anyone else experience this or know who this could be? Would be interesting to see the photos he took. Thanks everyone. oh PS- the air show was awesome -even with the storm that blew in out of the north lol. allot of small boat anchors started dragging in the wind.

It was Boatpix.com. They want over 400 dollars for a digital photo. LOL We have friends with professional drones that will do it for free. I think that is a little high priced.

Was your wife/GF laying naked on the deck? Don't laugh, had it happen. (Or, feel free to laugh, as it was pretty funny when it happened.)

They did this to my friends YEARS ago down offshore SBI.. My friends just happened to land a HUGE Wahoo that day and they all grabbed it and held it up for the helicopter to take a pic. My friend that owns the boat contacted the company and paid for the pic, albeit he was taken back by the price.. The pic still hangs at my friends house many years later.

I took some pics of boat pix, taking pix of boats, 15 or more years ago.
