My post had to be approved by the moderator which was ran by a yacht broker.

What is Thermal Imaging?
Thermal imaging (also sometimes referred to as thermography, infrared imaging or thermal scanning) is the means by which humans can see the infrared portion of the light spectrum.

We could see the Dolphin everywhere, the ocean water surrounding the…Continue
