A lot of footage captured during riding with Capt. Reid on the night watch after sundown was not able to be used in this video due to the fact that there was nothing to see on camera due to the nature of the ships bridge at night being extremely dark as in order to maintain natural night vision needed for safe navigation, lights cannot be used.
