Shooting from the water

->> I am working on a photo essay about the coast guard aux here in Yellowknife, NWT on Great Slave Lake. I wanted to get some info if possible on the shooting from the fresh water. We also have a waterproof bag you can put your camera in to keep the splash off of. Any one with experience in sailboat races (America’s cup) etc . . . would be a great help.

ps They have two boats a dry boat which has a good place to store equipment and a wet boat which is a zodiak and can be quite wet depending on what the lake is like? Any suggestions would be great!

->> beg borrow or rent some waterproof equipment-
I live at the beach-in additon to the splashes their is salt and sand to contend with--
since yours is fresh water you might be ok with the waterproof housing-/bag- but it doesn't take much to ruin your gear-
bring several towles to wipe off your equipment and keep them in a dry sack too-

->> For the dry or wet boat, store your gear in a big plastic ice chest with a flip top lid. You can slam the lid shut when the spray/waves comes your way, then open it and grab out a body and lens to shoot with.

Also can do with a big pelican type case, but the big ice chests are cheaper, bigger, and have only one latch.

And never believe that a dry boat is truly a dry boat.
