    How Much does a Bluewater Sailboat Cost? | Sailing Soulianis – Ep. 22

    September 21, 2019


    – Now that we’ve owned our
    boat for a little while. – And we have officially left the dock. (upbeat music) – We thought it might be a good time right before we set off down the river to take a step back and talk
    to you guys about money. – Cash flow.
    – Dollah-dollah bills, y’all. – Clams.
    – Clams? – Everybody always wants to
    know, how much does it cost? – And it’s one of the most
    important questions too because it’s one of the
    biggest barriers for entry. Once you decide that
    you want to buy a boat, once you decide that
    you want to go cruising, the next biggest question
    is, do you have the money? – Today we’re gonna talk to
    you about a couple of things. We are going to answer the question, how much does it all cost? We just bought a boat. That’s the big one. – We’re gonna touch on
    our saving and planning in the years that lead up
    to actually buying the boat. (champagne squirting)
    – Yeah (laughing). Lauren just paid off all her school loans. The types of expenses to
    expect when purchasing a boat. – [Woman] $370 to document a boat. When you have a lien and
    you have to record it it jumps up to like $570. – The upgrades that we
    needed to do to the boat once we purchased it. – A new windlass. – 44 pound Rocna. We got a dinghy! Here is your throne. 200 feet of chain. – Lastly, we’re gonna talk about the tools that we developed, to help us answer some of the questions, like should we finance the boat and how much boat can we afford? And how much is it gonna cost to make this boat into
    what we want it to be after we do buy it. It took us 10 years from the day we decided
    we wanted to go sailing, to signing the dotted line
    to purchase our sail boat. Was it 10 years, really? – Yeah it was, I mean
    it’s kind of a gray area but yeah, it’s about a decade. Overall, our biggest thing was we didn’t wanna just save
    up some money, take off, and then when that money run out, be forced to come back to land. We actually already had done that once. It wasn’t a boat situation,
    but we quit our jobs and we took off traveling,
    and then we ran out of money and we had to come back and get jobs. We did that in our early 20s and that wasn’t something
    we wanted to do again. This time we wanted to
    make it sustainable. So we wanted to eliminate debt, we wanted to acquire some
    passive income streams and. – We needed to save for the boat. – And we needed to save for the boat. – So while it took us 10 years
    to do all of those things you can probably get
    them done a lot faster if you don’t come out of school
    with massive amounts of debt and if you are comfortable with the idea that after a year, or two, you might need to stop
    and get different jobs. We’re treating this a
    little bit differently, we’re wanting to make it
    a sustainable lifestyle and so we are working the entire time that we’re traveling and we’re hoping to cut
    back on that a little bit but it’s more of a lifestyle choice for us rather then a sabbatical. (upbeat music) So during all of our time
    thinking about buying a boat in that 10 year period,
    we also had to talk money. We had to figure out how
    much money we could spend and it wasn’t always clear because. – The type of boat that we wanted changed. – Drastically.
    – Like drastically over the years that we were searching. – I’d like it, we’d have to
    put some money into it though. – That boat’s a piece of work. – We really didn’t follow a very well thought-out plan,
    which is why I wrote the post “How to Buy the Right Sailboat for You.” (laughs) So that you could
    learn from our mistakes. – So you’re not idiots like us, spending years looking for a boat. – But when it came down to brass tacks, we decided we had a
    all-in budget of $50,000. – And the $50,000 thing actually came just a little bit after we had like a $30,000
    budget for a little while. – For a while we thought we
    wanted to stick around $30,000 and then we decided we could
    go a little bit more to get what we felt like would be
    a significantly better boat that was gonna require a lot less work. – Yeah. – So that really leads into, kind of the thinking behind our budget
    was, we had $50,000 all-in. That meant we could buy a $50,000 boat and not spend a penny more,
    or we could buy a cheaper boat and every dollar under $50,000 was money that we could
    put towards upgrades. – You might still be
    wondering, why $50,000? We wanted to buy a boat that
    was pretty much ready to go. We didn’t want to be stuck in a boatyard for months or years, trying to
    finish a half-completed boat. We looked at boats that
    were less than $50,000 and we felt like either, they were too small for the two of us, or they weren’t in good enough condition. And so after looking at
    hundreds of listings, probably thousands, it
    just seemed like $50,000 was the minimum amount
    that we would need to spend to comfortably get what
    we were looking for, which was something that
    was pretty much ready to go and also the size that we wanted, somewhere between 35 and 40 feet. – And the reason for that is a few things. I’m six foot three, and
    having standing head room in the place that I’m going
    to live, is very important. Also, we work remotely, so
    we need some office space and having some space for
    toys was also very important. – [Lauren] What d’you got? – I got some kiteboard here. (upbeat music) How much does it all cost? Is that where we are at? – Well, yeah, we’re gonna focus on how much it costs to
    actually buy the boat. Of course there are costs
    once you buy the boat, ownership costs, but we will only.
    – Save that for another video. – Focus on what it costs to buy the boat. – When buying a boat,
    there are a lot of expenses that are easily overlooked. We found that when buying our
    boat, all of those expenses added up to about 10%
    of the purchase price. – And that’s because of all
    these other little expenses that you really don’t think about when you’re just browsing online, looking at the listing price of the boat. The list price of our boat, was. – What was it, do you remember? – I’m pretty sure, it was 40 ss. – Do we need to look it up?
    – Seven? There it is, 47. – Okay.
    – ‘Kay. – So our all-in budget, was $50,000. The boat was listed for $47,000. Bing! We’re under budget already. – Yay. – We offered.
    – 41,000 – We agreed on a purchase
    price of $43,500. – That.
    – That was great (laughs). – That left us with $6,500
    for upgrades and repairs, which we thought was fantastic. – But not so fast. – That was before we realized all of the other transactional costs associated with the purchase of our boat were going to add up to $4,029. – Wah-wah. – So what were all of those costs? – Survey, $740. – Our haulout to inspect
    the bottom of the boat during the survey was $272. – Insurance was actually something that we needed to have at the closing because we decided to finance our boat. – $591. We bought a Boat US membership, so that we had unlimited towing. We felt like we didn’t
    want to leave the dock and go anywhere without that. Was $10. – $10 that was the best
    money that we spent I think. – (laughs) Closing costs, were $125. – Registration was 73 but the
    biggest one was sales tax. – That was $2,218. – Ouch. – And depending on which state you are in and how dubious you
    feel like being that day there are many ways,
    both legal and illegal to try and get out of paying the sales tax but we just decided not to
    go through all of that hassle and pay up. – Because we’re also
    not by nature, crooks. So that did a good job of eating up most of the rest of our budget. – Leaving us with a total of $2,471 for upgrades and repairs. That’s startin’ to feel a little bit slim. (jazz music) – 99.9% of the time when you buy a boat there’s gonna to be something
    that you want to do to it after you buy it. And in our case, there was a bunch of upgrades
    that we wanted to make. – But we prioritized a number of things that we wanted to do to the boat before heading down the river. – To be specific, we weren’t
    super-concerned about getting a solar array up, we
    also weren’t concerned about immediately upgrading our batteries. Those were things that
    we decided to do later. But the things that we did do. – Are many.
    – Yes. (jazz music) – Are we showing a list
    on screen right now? – Sure, I don’t know. We bought a radar reflector, we bought a handheld VHF, we bought two jerry cans for fuel, one for water. We got a free inflatable dinghy with oars. We upgraded all of our LED, all
    of our cabin lights to LEDs. We bought Navionics for our iPhone. We purchased a new Rocna anchor. We purchased and installed a windlass. We added 200 feet of 5/16 high test chain. We got an anchor bridle, a swivel. And everything to finish out our. – Anchoring system. – Ground tackle anchoring system. We got our cell phone signal
    booster and an antenna so that we can continue working. And we made covers for our compass, our handrails and our winches. And put in some soundproofing
    for our engine compartment so that it wouldn’t drive us crazy as we were motoring down
    the river in a sailboat. That covers it. – Is that it? – That is all of our costs, to
    date from purchasing the boat through leaving our home port and starting out on our adventure. I just realized I didn’t
    include the stuff we bought before we bought the boat which was the holding
    tank, which was $700, which would put us $1,100 over budget. – Oh (laughs).
    – Shh. There are probably a few thousand
    dollars of other expenses in there for just living expenses. Probably a couple of hundred more in there for just consumables and
    every day odds and ends like cleaning supplies, and.
    – Kleenex. – Little bits here and there that didn’t make it into this list. – Kleenex.
    – Kleenex. Why Kleenex?
    – I don’t know. – And a few months between buying the boat and preparing her to head down the river, we spent a total of (tapping on wood) $2,924 meaning we were only $423 over budget. For a grand total of $50,423 spent to purchase and outfit our boat for extended, long-term travel. (upbeat music) So how did we spend $50,000 and only manage to go $423 over budget? That’s a good question, you might ask. – How do you know that a boat is listed for a reasonable price? How do you know what to offer? Not all the time do you want
    to offer the full price. I mean, just like houses, you often offer under
    what the asking price is. And then how did we know
    that the counter-offer was something that was acceptable? Those are all really good questions. And we didn’t just stick with a feeling. You know, it wasn’t like
    oh, this feels right. But we crunched the numbers. – As part of the process
    to purchase our boat we developed a few financial tools to help us make decisions and streamline the boat-buying process. The first tool we created
    to help us determine what was the fair market value of the boat that we were looking at. It also served to help
    us take an inventory of everything that was on the boat so that we could figure out what else we might need to add
    to that boat after purchase. – ‘Cause the boat itself
    is only one part of it. especially if you’re going to be cruising, all the extra stuff on
    the boat is a big deal. – So this tool helped us estimate the cost of everything that we would
    need to add to the boat after purchase, and is a major reason why we were able to stay
    pretty close to our budget. The tool also helped us
    analyze sold boats data we got from the listing broker. We were able to look at
    all of the sales history for the past three years of every Tartan 37 sold through a broker, and analyze the average sales price, how long it sat on the market, the percent and dollar
    amount of the discount, and ultimately, generate
    a suggested offer price that we should make on the
    boat that we were buying. – [Lauren] So that we knew we weren’t gonna overpay on the boat. – The second tool we created, was a tool to help us decide
    between buying the boat in cash or financing the boat,
    and saving that cash and investing it in some other manner. Both of those tools we created were extremely important
    in helping us make all of the decisions throughout
    our boat-buying process. We’re really excited to be able to share those
    tools with our patrons. You’ll have full access to
    all current financial tools, as well as any future
    updates that we make to them along the way. – But if you’re not a patron and you’re still interested
    in using these tools, you can. – We’re making them available for purchase and they can be downloaded
    directly from our website. Put a link in the description below. – Below. – Thanks so much for watching. If you like what we had to share today even through it was a little bit different and at some times awkward. (whispers) Mostly her. – Yeah, definitely. – (laughs) Let us know. If there is somethin’ that
    we didn’t cover here today that you’d like to see, tell
    us in the compli, compliments? – Tell us in the compliments. – Tell us in the compliments, yo. – Compliments only (laughs). Anyway, thank you for watching,
    and we will see you soon.

    ground. Modern day boats are expensive… And they can be sitting ducks if a storm approaches… KITV4 Meteorologist Cam Tran shows us what you need to know when it comes to protecting your boat… ED UNDERWOOD: DLNR 1:22 YOU WANT TO FIRST DECIDE CAN YOU OR CAN YOU NOT GET YOUR BOAT OF THE WATER, Ed Underwood of the Department of Land and Natural resources says your first priority is getting the boat onto dry land and stored safely. But if you can’t take it out: UNDERWOOD, DLNR IN: 4:03 IF YOU’RE GONNA LEAVE YOUR BOAT IN THE WATER LIKE YOU SAID DOUBLE UP YOUR MOORING LINES, TRY TO TRY TO TIE YOUR MOORING LINES HIGHER IF YOU CAN LIKE ON A PILING OR SOMETHING THAT WOULD ACCOUNT FOR STORM SURGE 4:13 Also, you’ll need to secure any loose items UNDERWOOD 4:14 IF YOU HAVE A DOCK BOX ON YOUR DOCK YOU’RE GONNA WANNA EMPTY THAT AND TAKE THOSE ITEMS AWAY IF YOU CAN 4:25 If you moor your boat at a private marina, be sure to check the requirements at your location. They could have their own set of storm safety rules but most like the Hawaii Kai Marina follow the recommendation of the state. BEVERLY LIDDLE, HAWAII KAI MARINA COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION 2:55 WE RECOMMEND PEOPLE SECURE THEIR BOATS AS BEST AS THEY CAN 4:50 MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PLENTY OF LINES, MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERIES ARE UP TO SPEED JUST PREPAREDNESS, JUST LIKE ON A BOAT Though Maunalua Bay shelters the 14- hundred vessels registered in the marina, you can can never be too cautious. Here at the Hawaii Kai Marina they have a landing for people to quickly remove their boats. BEVERLY LIDDLE, HAWAII KAI MARINA COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION 2:56 IF THEY WANT TO TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WATERS THE SMALLER BOATS AND HAVE ACCESS TO TRAILERS WE OPEN UP HANCOCK LANDING NEAR THE HAWAII KAI LAUNCHING FOR RETRIEVAL INTO THE MARINA 03:07 Whether it’s taking out your boat OR staying put, experts say make sure you make a decision on what to do with your vessel well before a watch is even issued. AS the storm nears you may be dealing with traffic and be left with an even bigger and harder decision down the road. 07:06 IF YOU GET STUCK DOWN AT THE HARBOR ARE YOU GONNA LEAVE YOUR 30THOUSAND DOLLAR SUV TO PROTECT YOUR 10 THOUSAND DOLLAR BOAT?7:011 We can’t say this enough.. KITV wants to make sure you have storm info when you need it… And WHERE you need it. We have the ONLY free hurricane tracker app in town.. Be sure to download it.

    We’re a Sailboat Again! | Sailing Soulianis – Ep. 33

    September 12, 2019


    – Today’s the day we become a sailboat. – We are a sailboat again. – Not yet. Almost.
    – Almost. – [Lauren] Last time on Sailing Soulianis, we traveled our final
    100 miles on the river. We’re almost to the ocean. Before arriving in Mobile, Alabama. – All the way from fresh
    water to salt water, from Michigan to Gulf of Mexico. – [Lauren] After being
    reunited with our mast, we gave it a good bath
    and made a few upgrades before getting it ready
    to put back on the boat. – Aw why thank you. – [Kirk] What are we doing? – We’re running all the lines on the mast before it gets stepped this afternoon. When we become a sailboat again. – [Kirk] And why are we running
    all the lines on the mast? – We took them off because
    we had the mast shipped from Chicago to Mobile, Alabama, and we didn’t want any of
    our lines to get ruined while it was in transit; and now we are reattaching our real lines and running those back through. – [Kirk] So show me how this works. We’ve got down here is our…. What halyard is that? – I have the jib halyard. – [Kirk] You have the jib halyard. – Yep. Alrighty we have to tie this line to the end of the jib halyard, and feed it through that
    exit sheave right over there. – [Kirk] And do we have
    to tie a special knot? – Yes, we have to tie a bowline. – [Kirk] A what? – A bowline. – [Kirk] But that’s not
    a special knot and why? Because our lines are whipped, so that we don’t have to
    tie a special heaving knot or messenger line knot or anything else. – Thanks Linda. – [Kirk] Linda, the previous
    owner, beautifully spliced and whipped almost every
    single line on the boat. – I don’t have bowline
    skills, I forgot them. – [Kirk] Oh no. – Yeah. – [Kirk] You have Instagram photo proving you know how to tie a bowline. – I know that was a
    long time ago (laughs). – Alright. A simple bowline. Line over the top, twist underneath. Your line is now coming
    up out of the hole. Go around behind and back down below. Pull tight. Simple bowline. We’ve prepped everything on the mast. We just need to put on the turn buckles. We’ve installed a new internally
    run spinnaker halyard, so that we aren’t constantly annoyed by a slapping halyard on the mast. – Bought a new VHF antenna. Attached the rest of the wind instruments. – Cleaned the mast. Cleaned all of our rigging. – Checked the lights to
    make sure they worked. And yeah, that took us a
    better part of three days. – Yeah. We were also working, and we kinda didn’t
    know what we were doing. We did good. – I’m still nervous. – Yeah, I hope there– – I’ve been nervous for this day like since we took the mast off. It was like a relief having the mast off. – Yeah. – Because our deck was clear, and we were going down the river and everything was going to be hunky dory but then I just want it back on the boat. I don’t want anything to break. I want it all to– – Like our new VHF antenna. – Yeah. I’m hoping we can figure out how everything gets attached again. I mean are we going to have
    them tune the rig even? – I think so. – Okay. – Yeah, I don’t know. I mean I read how to do it but we learned a lot
    running this line internally from Wes the rigger here; and I feel like we could
    probably learn a lot from him which would be beneficial for the future; rather than just struggling
    through it ourselves. And it would probably
    cost an hour of his time, which would probably be well spent. To make sure one of the
    most important pieces of equipment on our
    boat is properly tuned. So we don’t die. Alright human tripods getting tired. Let’s do it. (electronic music) – [Lauren] Two inches. – (laughs) – [Lauren] What? Stop! – [Lauren] Stop. – I need the base to
    come to starboard more. – [Lauren] Base to starboard. – It’s In! (electronic music) – Alright make sure that
    this is pressed down as far as you can get it. – Yeah. – It’s crooked now. – Let’s get this, okay alright. – Good? – Yep. – What’s that behind us? That’s a mast. Hell yeah. – Yes. – [Kirk] Put that on the table there. Look at how blue it is. – [Lauren] This is a lovely gift from our boat neighbor
    from Wisconsin, Bruce. He said take this with you on your trip and you can pop it when
    your mast goes back up and it won’t be long, and guess what happened today? – [Kirk] Wait, am I supposed to guess? Because I know what happened. – (laughs) – That’s so blue, it’s crazy. – We put our mast back up today. Hell yeah. – [Kirk] Cheers. The next day we finished
    putting the mast back together. Connecting all of the wiring
    and tensioning the rig. – [Lauren] You on the line. – Yeah, I’m done. – [Lauren] Oh, shoot. – I told you it was only
    going to take five minutes. We got to test it now but. – [Lauren] It pays to
    have pictures doesn’t it? – [Kirk] Yes, very much so. Radio. Where’s our handheld? Go to what 78? It works (laughs). Here. Hold that. I’m going to go outside. (over speaker) Radio test, radio a test. – [Lauren] Oh, test is good. – [Kirk] I’m getting some weird feedback. I don’t know if it’s just
    cause I’m so close but– – [Lauren] Because you’re three feet away. – [Kirk] Yeah, let me go up on the deck. – ‘Kay. – [Kirk] Soulianis this is Kirk. – Kirk, this is Soulianis over. – [Kirk] Yeah we are
    getting some feedback. Does it sound clear transmission to you? – Sounds clear to me. – [Kirk] Yeah I don’t
    know what that noise is. Can you tell me a quick story? – The quick brown fox jumped
    over the lazy brown dog. – [Kirk] They were both brown huh? Since the rigger hadn’t
    been by to tune our rig, I decided to take a stab at it myself. This is all starting to
    make sense to me now. We’ve got our Loos tensioner here or tensioning gauge. So as soon as I started
    putting a little bit of tension into the lowers, it took tension off of the uppers and those went from 25
    they’re now down to 20; which is about where we want them. That’s 20 on the Loos scale, which includes a corresponding table of breaking strengths for
    the various diameter of wire it’s capable of measuring. But these aren’t still quite tight enough because these have almost
    no tension on them. Which is okay, I don’t need
    a ton of tension on them. But what we want to do now is we just want to make sure that our mast
    is staying straight up. So we are going to measure from the pin at our upper forestay, all the way up to the top of the mast using our topping lift
    because it’s in the center of the mast head. The rigger who actually was
    supposed to do this for us used our halyard which
    comes out of the starboard exit sheave at the top of the masthead. So we’re actually about a half
    to three quarters of an inch tighter on this side then
    we were on that side. So, always check your work. – [Lauren] Okay, teach. – Or other people’s work. If you want it done it
    right, do it yourself; or something like that. Alright so let’s measure this. So you’re going to hold this here. – [Lauren] Got it. – Alright so we are at
    66 and three eighths. So closer to what we were before. Now let’s go to the other side. Oh, and we are at 66 and– – [Lauren] It’s not super tight. – But was the other side all the way taut? – [Lauren] Yeah I think so. – Alright so we are going
    to go all the way taut. We are at 66 and a quarter. So let’s go back over to this side. Nice and tight. You were bang on. That’s 66 and a quarter. – [Lauren] Ooooh! – Alright. Cool. So now we just need to count the turns. – [Lauren] On the turn buckle? – Yeah. So the way this works is you put that guy in there. You pull this guy here. So we’re right at about 19 and a half, 20. Which is kind of exactly what we want. – [Lauren] Okay. – And then if we go check the other side it should be roughly the same, but it’s more important that
    we get the mast centered then the tension exactly the same. And see that ones a little higher. – [Lauren] What is it saying? – That one’s 22, but we’re keeping the mast centered. I’m going to slowly go around
    and add a few more cranks on these, and at least I’ll feel better if Wes doesn’t show up
    until after we leave that the mast is not like all wackadoodle. – [Lauren] Yeah because we
    had been seeing an S curve in the masthead. – [Kirk] Yeah so the S
    curve is gone I think. – [Lauren] We ended up reasonably happy with our rig tensioning. Then after getting the boom back on, Soulianis was looking more and
    more like her sailboat self, and we were ready for a
    break and some R and R. Alright, we are all packed and
    ready to go back to Michigan. We have turned the boat
    completely inside out and– – [Kirk] Wait for me. – [Lauren] (laughs) And
    Kirk’s playing hide and seek. Oh man. – [Kirk] Don’t mold. Please. – [Lauren] Please don’t mold. It’s only two weeks and five days. Both of us were really excited
    to spend a couple weeks hanging out with family and friends in warm houses and
    actually having some fun outside in the snow. Our plane ended up flying
    right over St. Louis and the stretch of the Mississippi River we had just traveled. – Ready to do some sledding? – [Lauren] (laughs) (screams) I haven’t done that in like ten years. – [Kirk] Coming for you. Oh god (yells). You’ve got to try this one. This one’s like riding a rocket ship. You ready for the speed? – I don’t know if I can handle the speed. – [Kirk] Don’t get scared now. – I don’t know man. – [Kirk] Uh oh. – (laughs) – Don’t hit the tree. Apparently she can’t handle the speed. This is my childhood sledding hill. Coming for you. (screams) (screams of excitement) – Last run. Oh man. – Oh sh– (laughs) (laughter) – That was fun can we do it again? – One more time? – Yeah. – Alright. – I used to live right there too. Can you imagine being half as tall? – [Lauren] A few days later we prepped for a weekend road trip to Montreal to surprise my friend
    Hadley for her 30th birthday and hit the slopes of Mont Tremblant. It was so good to see old friends again. – (laughs)

    Camping on a Million Dollar Boat!

    – Oh, hello. It’s gonna be a couple days
    of epic camping for this vlog. It’s gonna be amazing. – What are you talking about, camping? That’s bigger than our
    fridge at our house. – We’re camping.
    – We’re camping. I know it doesn’t look like it, like look at this room that we’re in, but look out this way. That is a boat, and that is a bigger boat. We are actually on a
    boat ourselves right now. It’s a ginormous boat. I think we should do an MTV
    Cribs-style tour of this place. Not right now. First, we’re gonna go hiking. Have you ever seen those places that they have those canyons? Have you ever seen what’s that movie? You’ve probably never seen it. 27 Hours, I think, it’s called where this guy is camping, or he’s hiking through these slot canyons, and a boulder falls on his
    hand and he can’t get out, so he cuts his hand off
    and then crawls out. – What? – That’s where we’re going this morning. (upbeat synthesizer music) Do you see this row of boats right here? This is like houseboat city. It’s too windy today to take the boat out, so we’re gonna find lots of
    fun things to do around here. We’re gonna go to the slot canyon first, and we all have to fit
    on this one Ranger thing. Kind of sketchy. Cole, are you qualified
    to be driving this thing? – Oh yeah, driver’s
    license and everything. – There’s like 20 kids back there. (upbeat synthesizer music) We made it through the group from China. I don’t know what they
    were doing out here, but smooth sailing all the way to our car. (upbeat synthesizer music) That’s where they came from. So that’s where we were
    on our boat a minute ago before we came all the way up here, but this place is pretty magical. It’s called Antelope Point. Now, a lot of you give us a hard time because we wear like
    BYU gear in our videos. Our buddy that has the boat
    here, his name is Steve, he is the biggest BYU fan you’ve ever met. Here’s the car that he drove up. I know it’s not blue like BYU, but you can’t really get a blue Porsche. I mean, come on. But look at that license
    plate BYU with the Y. Okay, to you it’s only been a few seconds. To us it’s been like five hours. This place is very unique. The Native Americans that run this place are very old school in the way they do it, so no video cameras, no tripods. You know I’m a rule abiding person, so I’m gonna try to sneak this in. – But if they say no, he’s definitely gonna turn the camera on because that’s what he does. If he gets in trouble he’s always gonna turn the camera on. – I don’t know that that’s true. (upbeat synthesizer music) – [Man] Look at these little steps, tiny. Like the finest sand ever. – Wait, Daddy, can I
    take off my shoes, too? – Yeah, take them off. – Lincoln can’t though. Just kidding. Lincoln decided it would be smart to take his shoes off and socks. Now he’s regretting that decision. – [Lincoln] Ow, ow, ow! (upbeat synthesizer music) – [Dan] How was that decision to take your shoes off, Lincoln? – It felt good for a bit. – [Dan] Now what? – Now I know I want to put them back on. – I told you that. (upbeat synthesizer music) Come on, Lincoln, we’re
    moving, we’re moving. Go, go, go. Just one sock. That’s progress. (upbeat synthesizer music) There’s the lady right there. Right there, is that her? Ah, that is an eagle. (upbeat synthesizer music) All right, we are climbing out. Look behind me. Look how crazy this is. You don’t even see the crack
    in the ground right here. That’s where we were, all
    of that crack right there. If you were just walking by, there’s no way you would know
    that there’s a giant canyon that you can walk through right there. People just coming out of the abyss. That’s cool. (upbeat synthesizer music) This is the part of the day where we take the boat
    out and it’s super windy, but we’re gonna try to surf. (upbeat synthesizer music) All right, we are back. We’ve got dinner cooking. We’re not out where we’re gonna swimming, but it still doesn’t mean we
    can’t go out in the water. – [Girl] Let me go first. – This is great. This is so nice, this boat. This is the second level right here. Look at this. This is all part of the kitchen. TV comes down from there. Back of the boat, they can
    go out there and go swimming. – Hi! The water is freezing. – [Dan] It’s not quite freezing. It’s 76 degrees. – In here? What? – [Dan] 76. (upbeat synthesizer music) Good morning. – Hi. – [Dan] How did you sleep? – Good. – [Dan] We are not at the dock anymore. – [Lincoln] I noticed. I woke up when they were first
    moving from the dock, though.

I may be a little heavy because I am, a 1000 lbs all that means though is I’ll just make a stronger wrath And finally That leaves me Contestant number three, I’m smart. I’m creative and I want to stay out of that freezing cold water So I know for sure I’m gonna win this challenge Each contestant will have one hour to build their raft and then will enter the pool with one we will sink click away oh, uh and one last thing. I forgot to mention time Starts now Im off! Okay, guys I’ve just arrived at B&Q in case you don’t know B&Q is a DIY shop And it’s filled with loads of supplies that I know will help me with today’s challenge now I’m not sure where Mum and Martin are but hopefully they won’t have came here because I don’t want them stealing my supplies Team morgz, let’s get in there and let’s start crafting our raft Okay, guys, I’m inside being to you right now. I’m just looking around trying to find some supplies for my raft Hey, excuse me lady stop right there (Gasp) Morgan?! What are you doin’ ‘ere? What am I doing here more like what are you doing here? Are you copying my items again? I am sick of it SERIOUSLY?!? Again? Hey! You! Stop right there! (Gasp) Morgan, Jill what are you doin’ ‘ere? What we doing here what are you doing here? Are you trying to copy us? Wait a sec, you’re copying me? No, Morgan You’re copying me. I think you two are copying me. I’m not copying you or Jill Morgan You’re definitely copying Martin. No Jo, I think Morgan’s copying you Martin Jill. I’m not copying either of you So does that mean that I’m copying Martin? No, Jill I think that means am copying you but does that mean that we’re both copying Morgan? .Both of you just shut up I don’t care who’s copying you I’m off to get my supplies. Yeah, Morgan me too. Martin. Stop copying me No Jill you’re copying me remember? wait, so does that mean that if Martin’s copying Morgan then does that mean that I’m copying Morgan? I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE! Okay, guys, I’ve been thinking for a few minutes and I think I’ve come up with a plan I found a sheet of wood and I’m gonna craft this into a raft let me explain my sheet of wood has a big surface area so it can be hard to sink and And everyone knows boats are square However, the sheet of wood will not be no I need to get creative and think well, it’s gonna attach to this to make it even harder to sink And also I need to be quick Hi guys. I’ve been looking around this shop and I’ve just come up with that great idea I found these extra large black tools and check this out guys. I can fix inside it. This is really really comfortable So since it’s tub, it’s so big and Hollow inside. I think this is gonna stay a float However, I just use this tube as it is it will tip over and I could fall into the water So I’m gonna keep looking around and see if I can find anything else to add to this tool team bald. I’m feeling confident Okay, guys, I’m just around the entire shop and to be completely honest I haven’t got any ideas of what to build. I need something that I can sit on. There’s gonna keep me a float That’s gonna keep me comfortable and I just can’t think of anything. I literally just need something to sit on like a chair If I get chair and then find something to attach on to it to help keep it afloat Not only will I not sink, but I’ll be comfortable at the same time.Morgz, you’re a genius Now let’s go get a chair Okay, guys, I’ve been looking around and I think I found a perfect thing to add to my board. Check this out guys It’s polystyrene.Polystyrene is very light and it definitely floats So if I cover my board with polystyrene? It’s gonna take me one step closer to building the Unsinkable raft. Oh guys check this out I have just found the perfect thing to add to my top. These massive rolls are over think about it If you attach one of these to each side of the top then it’s going to stop it from tipping over and keep it a float oh ho guys I’m a genius ladies and gentlemen I have just came up with the best idea as you can see over here There’s loads of water tanks. These are used to keep water in But today I’m going to be using them to keep water out If I attach one of these to each side of the chair, then I don’t think I’ll ever sing team morgz I think this challenge is mine right guys I’ve just arrived home with all my items My watch is telling me that I only have 30 minutes left to get my wrap ready So I need to get a move on so guys step number one is attach the polystyrene to the board. I’ve got a glue.I’ve got rope And I’ve got tape.So let’s waste no time and let’s begin crafting the raft Okay, guys, I’ve just arrived with all my supplies now it’s time to get crafty as you can see I’ve got lots and lots of duct tape and I’m going to use this duct tape to attach this bubble wrap To each side of this box, but remember guys the times ticking away so it’s time to get a move on This is going to take a while Okay guys, as you can see I’m back home and I’ve got all of my supplies at the ready Now I only just arrived by and I think I can hear Martin and Mom So that means I need to get a move on. I only have 25 more minutes to build my device So there’s no time to waste. So guys the step number one. We need to add extra Protection to the water tanks as you see this right here is just a lid So I’m gonna add loads of duct tape to make sure it stays sealed Guys my safety raft is complete, but I’ve just got another great idea I’m gonna coat the raft in duct tape to make you that extra bit strong Let’s do this ladies and gentlemen Step one completed as you can see, my floats are now complete. All afternoon now is attach the, To my tub and then I’ll have the ultimate raft However, I’m gonna need some more duct tape. I’ve already used a row Okay, guys the tanks are successfully sealed with duct tape, but now it’s time for the hard part I need to find a way to attach both of these tanks onto each side of the chair and I think There’s only one way to do. It duct tape duct tape an even more duct tape So what are we waiting for guys? Let’s get started Ladies and gentlemen, the raft is Complete and the heart of the raft We have a solid piece of oak wood and therefore the middle layer. We have some extra fleuti Polystyrene and to top it off and to hold it all together. We have extra strong duct tape And looking at my watch, I have 10 minuets to spare, so I’m gonna have some fun and play on my Peppa Pig Space Hopper Wait a minute guys, that gives me an idea These peppa pig space hoppers are really floating and i’ve got battle three of these So why don’t I attach these onto my raft to make it even more flimsy but before we do that one last thing we Right guys with five minutes to spare I’m happy to say that I have completed my wrap and I think there’s only one thing left to do roll the cinematics Guys as you can see My rap is complete. It feels solid Sturdy and I’m confident it will not sink and if you don’t believe me just sit back and watch ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I am happy to say that my build is officially complete And now I think you guys all know was coming roll the cinematics Guys with one minute to spare. I’m proud to say that my rap is ready And I think that means there’s only one thing left to do roll the cinematic Okay, guys The one-hour preparation time is over and all three of us are here in our completed rats We’ve got Jill in her Whatever you call this thing Morgan it’s called the Peppa Pig Mobile! Of course we’ve got me in my floatie Chair Mobile and then we’ve got Martin in his box It’s not just a box. It’s a floating box. And of course as well as the rafts, we have the pool now before we all enter the pool and see who can survive the longest I Say we go in one by one and see if our devices actually float Morgan. Sounds good to me. Yeah, Morgan I’m so confident. I haven’t even got my bikini. Yeah. Sure. That’s the reason you didn’t wear your bikini. Ah What you mean? Okay guys mom’s device is in the pool and it’s floating But will it be floating once mom gets onto it free? to Go oh My gosh, there’s also put it on suet. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my gosh Oh Martin what do you think does this count? I mean technically she’s staying afloat. She isn’t sinking her head is still out of the water you know what Morgan I ellefuc:!?8/( eoncepjxoajxapxj mum suckszxxxxxx Think it counts. However, I don’t think she’d be able to stop him there too long. My legs are getting really really cold You’re right (?) Its freezing! Okay guys it is time for Martin to enter the pool his device is floating, but will it keep floating once he gets in it? Let’s find out. Oh my gosh, where we goes? Goes, oh my gosh. This is it Wait, wait, wait a sec. Oh My gosh Martin you go get inside a little bit It’s working. However, I’ve got to hope that no water gets inside the box. I also I’m going down like the Titanic Well looks like Martin has Officially passed and now I guess that only leaves one more person Morgz it’s your turn. Okay guys as you can tell the device is Floating but now it’s time for the big moment. Will it still be floating when my 200-pound body is sitting on that chair. Let’s find out haaawa hawwa hawwwaaaaaa wawwa hawwwa hawwwaa It’s a little bit slow people, I think it’s like check it out guys. It actually feels pretty solid guys I got a little bit nervous when the last water times started to crack, but I guess it’s holding up pretty well Yeah, Morgan, I guess it;s a pass Don’t think the left water tanks gonna last for much longer So I think Morgan’s gonna be going out first But now everybody is in the pool and it’s time to begin though asked to sing a challenge Guys, I’m not sure how long this is gonna last but hopefully not too long because my feet are already so sexy So he’s my boom Okay, guys we’ve been in the pool now for about an hour and so far my raft is holding up pretty good so far Absolutely, no water’s got inside the tube and I’m staying afloat. Just fine. Honestly, I’m having fun I think I could do this for hours as for Morgan and Joan. Let’s see how they are guys Guys, I am bloomin’ freezining! I can’t feel my legs any more. And as for my bum! I don’t even know if I’ve got ’em anymore! And these stupid Peppa Pig balls have nothing for me I’m staying afloat pretty well, but I don’t how much longer I can last in this freezing cold water guys Mum’s right about the water it is Absolutely freezing Jill said she can’t feel a bum well I can’t feel my feet. Just like mom I’m staying afloat pretty well, but I don’t know how much longer I can last in this freezing cold water Guys it’s been about one and a half hours since we entered the pool and as well has been really really cold I’m starting to get hungry. I just don’t know why I always forget to bring food with me to these challenges I could really use some sweets right now or a chocolate bar chocolate bar Chocolate bar did someone say chocolate bar Morgan? It was me. I’m so hungry Oh, well Jill, it’s your lucky day. Because what I remember to bring with me A chocolate bar! Oh Morgan Thank you so much. I really need it Yeah Mom it’s chocolate crunch. I’m sure you will love it. Oh, thank you so much Morgan. I’m so hungry I really need it. Well Actually thinking about it. I’m pretty hungry as well wait What it’d be a shame if I ate it all myself Morgan, no remember sharing is caring mom. You’re right sharing is caring but not when you’re in a challenge No! nO! Morgan I thought we were friends but not anymore THIS IS WAR okay now that the scene is over Okay, guys I’ve lost track of how long we’ve been in the pool, I’m just so cold I can’t feel any of my bottom half I feel like I’m floating torso So I don’t think my legs are gonna work again after this video they’re frozen the guys I have come up with an idea to warm me up. I don’t think Morgan and Martin are gonna like it. Oh, no guys What the hell is he talking about guys? This does not sound good guys. I need to do something to warm me Oh, I don’t think I’ve got any other choice. If I do nothing. I’m gonna have to forfeit. This is my only hope Im gonna have to wee in the pool! What you better be joking Jill if you wee this pool, I will never go near you again. That is disgusting. And anyway, this is my pool I spent $1000 on it. You can’t just wee in it Too late Oh No, I think I can smell it Oh nOo, Your buying me a new pool after this challenge. That is Unacceptable. Come on guys. It’s only a bit of wee, I do it all the time on holiday Oh, no, not acceptable behavior for 55 year old lady You know what Morgan we need to get back for that Joe Martin. I think that is a great idea GuYS WhAt YoU dOiNg?!? NO! You don’t have to do this! It was an accident! It just slipped out! I dInDn’T mEaN iT I’m your girlfriend! I’m your mom!

    September 11, 2019


    Floating down the river. Sailing on the sea. Cruising on the ocean,

    “That’s a tide boat, son”. I saw a boat going faster and further,
    I didn’t know the boats so I asked my father. He said,
    “That’s a speed boat, son”. I saw a boat full of fishermen.
    I saw a boat full of business men. I saw a boat… do you know what it was doing? Oh, floating down the river Sailing on the sea. Cruising on the ocean,
    boats are for me. I saw a boat transporting cargo.
    I didn’t know the boats so I asked my friend Marco. He said,
    “That’s a cargo ship”. I saw a boat with plains on top,
    I didn’t know the boats so I asked my friend Ra, he said,
    “That’s an aircraft carrier”. I saw a boat that was fire fighting. I saw a boat that was bright
    as lightening, I saw a boat… do you know what it was doing? Oh, floating down the river. Sailing on the sea. Cruising on the ocean,
    boats are for me. Yeah! Floating down the river Sailing on the sea. Cruising on the ocean,

    But I’ve got two more things to say! The first thing is,
    “Hey kids, remember, never talk to strangers
    specially if they have candy and try to make you go somewhere. And if you feel you are in trouble
    just yell, Stranger! Stranger, danger!
    Ha, ha, ha. But remember,
    never talk to strangers. And the second thing is,
    hey parents, remember? #Blippi! Ha, ha. Alright, bye! See you, kids!
    Bye!
