Costa Rica, Again

I don't know what is going on, it's not the sims... but it seems that when I'm doing too much camera work, I crash.... try to save a snapshot, crash. I managed to pull off a couple of pics and then crashed. The last crash, I don't know... I was stuck in shallow water. I think I need to switch boats.

This is where the trip ended, around 3 sims north of Guanacaste. I was stuck. I dusted off Renaissance, my Ketch, for use and got stuck in shallow water! Whoever cut this (somewhat narrow) channel didn't cut it very deeply and my keel got caught.

That shouldn't be a dealbreaker for me in considering this estate for buying land, but I'm feeling that it is. My Ketch isn't a particularly large boat, but I've got three big boats - the Larinda, the J-Class, and Columbia. How the hell could I use any of them to get around these parts of the estate? I haven't tested my One, but it could suffer just as well. I can't see myself buying land in this estate if I'm going to be too restricted in getting around it. There are lots of open water sections that seem pretty deep but there are some very narrow pathways too, as I can see from the world map.

*Pause* Maybe I'm just frustrated because of the lag and crashing. I will try again with the Twenty and if the same thing happens, that will seal the deal for me.

As a side note, I switched viewers in between crashing. The first picture was taken with the Dolphin Viewer 2 and the second with Boy Lane's Rainbow Viewer, a 1.22 viewer. You can't really see from these photos at this size, but the rendering between viewer 2.x and viewer 1.x is different - it's smoother with viewer 2. Antialiasing is on 8x in both and 1.x has more jagged lines in rendering. While I prefer the UI (the olllld pre-voice UI from 1.17), I am not enjoying the view as much now that I can see the difference with Viewer 2.
