  1. I'm a bit confused. For the captains salute she developed a 2-tone blast (Major 3rd?) like the James Barker (Perfect 5th?) . However under the bridge she blew 3 1-tone blasts to which the bridge answered again. She also seemed to blow one short blast. Did you add some in editing or were there other ships or boats around? I didn't see any on the GLA.

  2. The Captains Salute is recorded on both the Canal and Bridge cams. Depending on where the boat is in the canal at the time of the blast, it may be on both the canal and bridge cam views --- I could take it off one or the other, but, I really don't mind hearing it twice anyway. Sorry about the confusion.

    1. Right but that wasn't the point! The whistles were different each time. The one heard on the canal cam was an interval (2 pitches) and the horn on the Bridge Cam was one pitch, a straight tone! Casna

    2. I think the guy that tunes the horns is the guy that tuned the James Barker.

    3. Hi Artie! Ha, you're right. I'm sure the Assinboine didn't sound like that before. Got a musical friend? They aren't the same pitches. There are Different intervals between the 2 tones sung by each ship. When I get some time I'll get the tones on the piano, although mine is out of tune. Casna

    4. Dennis,
      It might be fun to put together a game that matches the whistle to the boat. Have thumbs of the boats and a list of audio files play a whistle and click on the boat. Winner gets a ride on Buzz.
