    So we do this thing at work called popcorn. Each month a name is drawn (Nobody is exempt.) and the winner has to do a short presentation the following month about something they do outside the office. This was my recent presentation. It was about 15 minutes long with me talking and the staff had about twenty minutes of questions afterward starting with "...when are you taking us all sailing?" I have posted a compressed 5 minute video version with music on facebook and thought I would share here it too.

    Very nicely done, James. You have put a lot of love in your boat- and it shows it very well. I wish your video had contained your sea story too, but I can imagine....

    Very nice presentation and excellent restoration of the boat! Bet that river run is a blast.

    I almost always enjoy the river run. It’s a uniquely Chicago thing.

    Too bad it is not doable on the 17th of March... It could then be a “Green River Run”.

    Damn fine work @Dalliance . This was my “Feel Good” moment for the day. Thanks for sharing! Two more weeks here before we get cracking on the seasonal preps. Your H30 looks awesome. We’re gonna work hard towards that level of attractiveness this year.

    Now that would be interesting. In a surreal kind of way.

    Really enjoyed your video. Nice work on your boat. I agree with the others, that river run looks like a blast!
    Thanks for posting!

    @jssailem At the risk of seriously hijacking the thread I will not post anything more in that regard. I blame it on being distracted by a "scissor sisters the basement" music video

    @Dalliance. Any way the presentation can me made accessible without facebook login ?

    I have to admit that I am not the most savvy in that department. I initially tried uploading it to my media file on this site but it’s a 269MB file and SBO seems to have a 20MB upload limit. That’s why I used the link to Facebook. If anyone knows another way, please let me know and I’ll gladly give it a try.

    A lot of the videos posted/linked on this site are actually links to Youtube. Its been years since I posted a video on Youtube but I don't think it was too difficult.

    Nicely Done and you should be very proud of all the work you have done-with love of your boat
    Non-sailors miss that feeling!

    Very nice.
    Interested in the "popcorn" exercise at work, because it's more inclusive than the lunchroom "cliques" that tend to happen. I think social interaction is more challenging for some. Any issues discovered or ground rules? I'd be interested to know more about how this works (pro and con). (Web searches have me drowning in the real popcorn). PM me if you think it's taking things too far off topic.

    Sent you a PM. Answer is a bit off topic and lengthy for this forum. Hope it’s helpful.
