Balancing Act

This skipper has two large rubber bags filled with water.  Each bag holds over 2,000 lbs of water.  The bags are pulled up a halyard, and with a twist of the helm the bags swing out over the side and put a serious list on the boat.  The skipper performs a delicate balancing act to maintain the list to get a 65' Mast under a 50' bridge.
