Olympus µ1050sw - Neat thing, about the size of a packet of cigarettes only thinner (and more waterproof)
The pics here are all hideously rendered down to make them web-friendly, but the full pics are good and crisp.
It's a bit slow on warming up, and it'd be nice to adjust the powersave timeout to more than 10seconds, But it suits yakking well:

A primo morning to be on the water ... until the stink boats started plowing through past the reef :@ I swear (and I did) a couple came close enough I could have landed a jig head on the deck :n:

HLD, I borrowed one of those Olympus cameras a couple of times for on the yak and they do take surprisingly good photos. Only thing is if it is one with a painted finish you need to wash the salt off well otherwise the paint will come off (no prizes for how I found that one out, lucky the owner had been debating between the painted and the polished version).

Used photo stitch software, but did use panoramic assist on the FT1. Provides a ghost image of the last shot which enables you to line up the following next. I feel it helps to improve the end result.

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to Yak fish and you won't hear from him most weekends :-P
