And for Glenn returning at night, brush up on your geometry as I am sure there is an angle of incidence that can be determined with a known water body length measuring the height and the angle of the sun or moon for a dusk approach into Sag Harbor Cover! :flying:

Bob. I love it! It's amazing what can be done when we just put our minds to good use.

You guys should invite Mr. Durocher and let him know that he is welcome to share even his not so traditional ways of performing glassy water landings with the readers and members of this forum. I assume preemptively that nobody will kill themselves trying it out and I promise that I won't apologize to anyone for his contributions to the site.

We can only learn from exchange of ideas and methods and god knows this industry is dead and deaf enough to be happy about any sign of life out there. Especially technique articles are hard to write and rare, these days. Many ways to skin a banana, and even if the ways proposed won't be adopted into the Hall Of Fame, they nevertheless deserve positive, if not at times humorous debate and constructive feedback.
