A history lesson for film buffs is the main reason to watch this 27-second short from Edison. The film was shot in San Francisco and we see the yacht "Unadilla" passing from the left side of the screen to the right. Yes, that's all that happens so if you're looking for a pure sense of the word entertainment then you'll probably be disappointed but this still stands as an interesting piece of history as how much stuff from 1898 can we actually see? I always enjoy watching these shorts for a variety of reasons but the main one is actually being able to see how people acting and what they wore back in 1898. Yes, we can watch a current movie that takes place back then but it's really not the same as seeing the real thing.
