Do you know how the early sailors navigate the oceans? The technology today makes it real easy to navigate the oceans. But it's very interesting to know how the early sailors managed to navigate without it. There's a lot of history on it. I tried my best to compile some important and interesting parts of it into this video.

STAR MARITIME ACADEMY
The crew that boarded the square rigged sailing ship Star of Bengal at the Alaska Packer's Association Wrangel cannery in September, 1908 were about to become unwilling participants in one of the great maritime disasters in Pacific Northwest history. There were 134 sailors and cannery hands on the ship, laden with 52,000 cases of canned salmon valued at $216,000. As the vessel left the dock, a pair of small steamers took the ship's six-inch hemp lines in tow, and the three-vessel flotilla headed seaward. Only 28 men lived to tell the story of what happened next. Experience the wreck of the Star of Bengal in John Sabella's 2001 documentary Sockeye and the Age of Sail.

Someone asked me to do an acoustic cover of Cat Like Thief by Boxcar Racer, so here it is! I recorded quickly, and used the actual song to keep time. I simply recorded with my Zoom h4n, and imported the tracks into garageband. Nothing fancy, but this is what it sounds like when I do it.
