    SailAway 72 | Making a Liveaboard Sailboat Liveable – The Projects Begin | Sailing Around The World

    September 14, 2019


    this week on sale away the projects
    begin just got installed one mass trader to shower some boxes and hopefully we
    will once again be waste management sound again we experienced the blessing
    of the fleet in historic downtown Brunswick and our first big expense
    arrives do you wanna say I wanna do you wanna say with me last week we made landfall after
    our first big transit on our new sailboats after a brief rest it was time
    to get down to business and the business was dirty business today we’ve got a
    couple of kind of gross disgusting boat projects to take care of kinda I hope to
    get them done before we left water Dale but everything was just so crazy and
    they were kind of non-critical so first one is bad macerator pump for the
    forward head and I see holy when I already pulled it out
    it was just leaking all over the place down there you know what it was leaking
    well cycling links and also wasn’t palpable and the previous owner had
    proceeded to fill that head beyond capacity so it was overflowing out the
    vents and it was also squeezing GU out of the master inner pumping in the bilge
    so I went ahead and bought a new macerator pump and that’s about to go in
    right there the white hose is the outflow from the tank
    Darko’s there’s one is overboard then to electrical connections the pump itself
    match threat to the whole so pretty easy all in all then right next to it is the
    next job that is the shower sump it’s just gross it’s just clogged up with all
    manner of disgusting human stuff pear and you know it’s not running either I
    think it’s probably just cause it’s so clogged up with everything I basically
    what that does is when you take a shower up here before the water runs out of the
    shower into the pump it’s got a little float switch and a pump in there and so
    it kicks that pump on it’s got a little screen and supposed to keep out hair and
    all that a couple hoses to disconnect for that one electrical connections and
    again it’s just automatic so there’s another one down in this
    just before the aft head is also not working so just got to install one
    master ater to shower some foxes and hopefully once again the waste
    management sound success there’s the both new items
    installed macerate around somewhat bug for you because there’s nothing to run
    in it but it works and then that’s the brand new shower some sea water flown in
    nothing gets to a certain height takes in the flow switch that’s it success to item down one to go stop pump number two jump up in a box
    basically oh this one’s way down in there pokey conduction big fan that was a
    bitch that just didn’t want I didn’t want to fit right she’s different make
    different shape it was in there but I was able to get rid of some weird pinkie
    extensions I put on the outflow hose I just plug it straight in which is good
    that works the key that’s what we used see flying showers on the boat now
    yeah we’ll let y’all know how this hold up so cheap play Tetris to get all this back in the
    dirty work taken care of we decided we deserved a little fun and it just so
    happened that the blessing of the fleet was taking place in downtown Brunswick
    the tradition was originally started by the Catholic Portuguese fishing
    community as a way to ask for God’s favor for a bountiful harvest in the
    upcoming season it involves boats lining up in a parade
    to go by a priest who then gives a blessing and flings holy water on the
    boats and while it’s mostly commercial boats
    dressed up nicely for the crowds literally any boat is welcome we
    certainly wouldn’t turn down the blessing but we weren’t quite ready to
    get out of the slip later really does Dana Gators on taters and just like that it was back to the
    boat list there we yeah good job trying to get this to line up I don’t
    know how I got the way it is but with the rudder in line the the wheel is like
    really cockeyed so you can’t fold it up that way ah so I’m trying to get it as
    close to center as possible so that you can sit in the dock and the rudders not
    like ah be careful dude it doesn’t want to get back together this rivers rivers
    I would like it if you didn’t jump around like that okay I’m gonna go back
    to pull out so that I don’t see huh okay we’ve got our first big delivery down at
    the marina office and we’re gonna have a bunch of stuff coming in we were finally
    kind of getting settled in here on the boat about some general stuff sitting
    around that we’ve been using daily but kind of gotten dug out down here for the
    most part and this right here is my recording setup just temporarily while I
    catch up on some work and then once I have a little break in that then I
    convert this back here into my studio but things are looking pretty good we’re
    gonna get rid of that big honking ice machine it’s kind of ridiculous and uh
    we are gonna get a smaller one because we like ice so we get that ordered we
    have brand new a/c unit for the foreword there’s two units on the boat one is in
    the main cabin was aft and so the one of the main cabin has gone bad and we had
    it serviced when we were in Fort Lauderdale two days after we got here it
    was blowing hot again so I ordered a whole new unit and we’ll see
    how that goes now we’ve ordered the icemaker I just
    ordered an arch to the stern from Atlantic Towers and I assume that will
    be here in a couple days so let’s go see what our first big
    surprise is Thank You Zeke is uh kind of digging this boat line every time we
    leave to go do anything he’s getting to walk hopefully whatever it is fitting
    our top card all right item number one hopefully car handling
    so far so good well that came insanely fast stored that thing maybe three days
    ago came so fast I don’t have time to put it in I’ve got
    two books to get done before Monday and so I pretty much have to do that nothing
    else from the next few days but then I got a week off to do boat jobs there’s
    gonna be a lot of Aqua air 16,000 BTU I think they called micro something
    they’re out of Florida this one of smaller companies not one of the big
    ones like Dometic or marine air they basically blew this packing foam in to
    fit the actual unit and then these pieces were all like molded in all
    around the sides it’s pretty cool I’ve never really seen anything packed like
    that before you know I gotta say my initial impression is a positive one
    thumbs up for how they shipped it at least these things are supposed to be
    more efficient and a lighter than similar units and quieter and I’m pretty
    sure our thickest our marine air pretty sure it’s the original unit and it’s
    kind of loud and it’s definitely bigger than that so I’m not gonna jump into it
    just yet but I’m gonna show you that packing job pretty cool next week on
    sail away not yet I install our new a/c unit and
    we join a bunch of new friends for the full moon dinghy drift thanks as always
    for watching please subscribe ring the bell for notifications of new videos
    every Friday and give us a like until next week Cheers in you wonder how we made it this far

    Liveaboard SailBoat Life: My First Time Hauling Out

    September 12, 2019


    Three novice sailors set out to Spain
    with the vague idea of sailing the Mediterranean. Five days after arrival we
    sailed 111 miles to Mallorca. We had an arduous time getting to Ibiza as well as
    back to mainland Spain. After a quick road trip around Spain we’re back on the
    boat and preparing for our next 100 nautical mile sail. This here is called a wind vain. It’s a
    type of auto helm. When we got the boat this was broken. We just med moored here in this marina and we had one of our lines accidentally
    going on it so pulled it even more so it’s pretty completely broken so I’m
    gonna take it off. That’s what a broken wind vain looks like. We found an open slip and began our Mediterranean moor which you can see by the exhaust that we
    are very new and the Med moor is difficult. This is my fourth ever successful Med moor. Nice job. Jackson. Dylan has been busy
    cleaning out the drains in the head using a chemical to do so. That’s so
    bright. Which like burns through whatever’s clogging it and we were
    having a bit of draining issues here so I figured agh if we have leftover stuff
    maybe we should put it in the sink. So Dylan put it in the sink. It burnt right
    through all the pipes in the sink. Oh my goodness. Whoa. What is this stuff that
    we’re working with here? Not good. No. This is sanitary hose that we’re gonna use
    underneath the kitchen because it’s all they had. That amount of hose was like 20 bucks. Tara and Jackson put on a coat of varnish and we went to bed eager for our
    sail in the morrow. It rained dirt last night. All of this came out of the
    sky. Yeah and we just varnished everything so. Cast off port side, cast off the bow. Cast off the starboard and unfurl the
    head sail and sail outta here. Go ahead and cast it off Jackson. Tara, I’m going to start unfurling the head sail so give me some slack. Jackson, what’s that caught up on? That main, that jib, that sheet. Yep, it’s all off. Okay, cool. The wind just died. It’ll be a lot easier to cast the stern off first. Okay. We’re gonna come around this. We’re gonna furl in the head sail and then jibe. So let’s prepare to jibe. All right so good ahead and let’s raise the main sail. So Tara, ease the sheet. We’re sailing to San Carlos de la Rapita where we will be moor anchoring
    for a few days and then hauling out the boat and cleaning it and working all.
    We’re going to miss you Javea. You were wonderful. So what happened and what did you just do? The head broke so this is a bucket of s*$%. I grabbed this big aluminum pole, known as a whisker pole in sailing lingo, and pulled out the
    Genoa as we settled into a run at the heading of 31 degrees, which we stayed at for pretty much the rest of our 25 hour sail. So we’re gonna read the Genoa. What that
    means is we’re going to make the sail smaller and the reason for that is so
    that there’s not as much stress on that sail and then because it’s starting to
    get relatively windy. I mean we’re probably sitting at fifteen knots of wind. Maybe a little bit more. Genoa it’s like super light so
    we’ve been cruising at like seven knots so we probably want to bring that down
    to about six knots. In Sant Carles de la Rapita we finally lined up a boat survey
    after over 400 miles on the water. Slightly leaking. Yeah. So you’re looking for movement of the
    rudder on the stock also any structural movement and we’re not seeing any. Good news. And then we hammer sound it to look for delamination. We promptly cleared the deck and began
    our boat work. These are blisters. This is like a tool.
    It feels like you’re cleaning up a wound to be, preparing it to be dressed. I would like to. No se exactamente, pero quiero. One to one ay? I filled all the
    blister pits and holes with two-part watertight epoxy. There were two spots of delamination on the deck. We drilled holes and filled the fiberglass with epoxy. That’s a mighty big box you got there. Dometic, coming in clutch. For the win. Mobile living made easy. We got another one, Tara. That many holes. Okay, I’m going to need your help now. Ohhhh you are, I hope you fly. Oh you fly for sure! Nice. How’s it going? Good to see ya. That looks great. What are you up to? Taking apart the head. So this is a sanitary hose that s*$% goes through and over time it calcifies, gets calcium deposits,
    and so if you look in here you can see that the diameter is like half maybe a
    quarter of what it used to be. All that gray build-up there. That’s calcium. Back in the water it was the first time
    to try out our new dinghy davits. It was un-gusseted. Not quite loose. First time using the dinghy davits. I’m drifting away! Jackson! I got you buddy! As you can see I have never done this
    before. We set off on our next 170 nautical mile
    sail to Cadaques, Spain. Expecting to have to motor the latter half of the trip, we settled into our journey. Thanks for watching. Subscribe if you

    Norfolk Broads: Trees, Leaks & Epoxy – Boat Vlog Ep 75

    September 11, 2019


    well what do you know it’s snowing yes
    cold tonight oh how exciting winter boating snowing
    freezing your nuts off this is fantastic got a parcel how’s that shop frontage
    hey we gotta get out of there now some frozen and muddy and last time you saw
    one of those tree what they say about life having no mercy moment I need
    moment I leave Sun comes out it’s lovely and more I’ve just been freezing since
    Friday there you go got the good east so we’re gonna have a little trip down to buxom get showered up and then we’re
    going down to Barton broad put my mouse tough thing that’s why they call it
    cracked Miller so I’ve been told I mentioned in one of my videos I’m
    stuck on the other side of the bridges floods about trees coming down so you
    can see this one here it’s quite a common sight actually but you really
    wouldn’t want to be in your eye when that happens not at all not at all some ol bucket is more up down there oh you gotta watch out for these cheese
    man I don’t know I pawned the water that goes to find out hey have you gone
    through one problem that’s how I changed them with the very sound of water not
    the middle of the winter I can assure you not good it was so windy the other
    night every night unaware he came for just sunny turned up a tow and
    knew like crazy and then it’s gone and even myself down in the town I pulled
    out blue tarp a tree there’s no real solution for it really because these
    trees up here I forget most of our now but did you see they grow like weeds and the ground just lifts up like carpet so
    it’s not going thing I mean if it wasn’t for brought authority and the
    Environment Agency or whoever is responsible for digging them how this
    river would come to a standstill put it down quickly and once the river stopped flowing then
    it starts flooding everywhere so it’s a crucial it should brew shall bit of
    river this to keep clear and it’s not only about navigation when flooding if
    you can see that little Robin dispensary I want to beautiful day to be on the
    roads but you often wild Lauren’s but as a
    perfect example that’s a big-ass tree as well perfect
    example of why Maureen excellent sweets there’s not such a great idea there’s another one there all of their
    aware if you you learn be careful sure awesome vehicle pump
    these out there okay here is your urgent report there
    isn’t there’s enough loss bone snapping the
    tree see I’ve never seen this anywhere before mmm that looks a bit more like it
    that’s going in the furling the further these are the compression fittings the
    wedges no sorry let me start that again these are the wedges that go in the
    compression fittings someone called stay lock so I’m gonna
    called Norseman and this son called hi Maude which I like because they separate
    the strands better but there seem to be a lot more expensive this is 20 quid
    worth here believe it or not so you know bursting certainly isn’t cheap but once
    these are done if they’re done properly they’re supposed to be stronger than the
    actual rope itself can’t quite figure how that works from the ego so we’re
    getting there and now we just need a day like today
    now we can start get it all put back together yeah if you look familiar with
    these it’s pronounced stay on the right side of winter now I wonder if you can
    see their rainbow one of those lovely winter days today
    and it’s come right after very wet previous day so I know I’ve got a leak
    so I’ve got my hatch apart take the wood off I’m gonna get a brand new piece in
    there I’m gonna pops you the hell out of it make sure this baby is there’s
    nothing more irritating and having a leak on a boat especially in the winter
    one is tricky to fix you know nothing will go off and set misses a day like
    this but also the fact that I’ve come to realize that when you have a leak on the
    boat it can actually ruin your boat you can do so much damage you can destroy
    your bulkheads ultimately so we’re quite anal when it comes to leaks now that’s
    just a tip and I’m gonna get it fixed so lovely sunny day we’re busy I’m working
    on the boat I wonder if you can see that seeing on the hatch that’s right where’s
    gonna drop down done what we can do cordelia rigging at the moment so we’re
    going the library work on the forum so over today and I hope it’s nice and
    sunny where you are this hatch is in the process of being restored that’s why it
    looks like it’s all being bleached and you know it does it’s actually beatboxing up in nice and sexy it’s
    windy as hell folks the weather but it’s not all doom and gloom because if you
    hadn’t chucked down I wouldn’t have discovered a leak here looking a bit
    messy at the moment but this is the early stages here I built up some layers
    of marine fly here and there all the process of being a pop seed and the idea
    is and the water comes down here to stop it from getting too far down years ago a
    hole in the to the wood that’s in here all right
    keepers trouble for tonight I think nearly there
    almost water type very pleased with that it’s nice for job comes together right
    come in the market for a new jib or a couple of spare ones I’ve had a quote
    for new jib and it ranges anywhere from about 800 to
    1,200 pounds so costly that happening for a while I can see online you can buy
    secondhand ones I thought might be best to go online and ask us somebody watch
    it might know somewhere what’s got to be 13 what’s the longest bit enough with
    the leech I think the laugh is 35 inches 28 30 yes
    the foot is 13 the Meech is 28 and the left/right interested and it makes perfect sense
    almost well it’s very moral early evening but I decided because it’s the
    end of the week I want to go out on the broad have some peace and serenity
    tonight find it a little bit difficult trying to get stuff done on the boat
    when I’m on the war into this high temperatures all day the people walking
    past and the minute sunny turn into hours of the next thing you know you
    spent about three hours talking to people and I do a lot of in the summer
    thing is I’m doing so I thought maybe if I come out here I live here to get
    something down but we’re making progress we’re getting some stuff done so I’m
    quite chuffed and yeah we have a nice night on the corner and shut up so happy
    days I will say there’s some chap who watches these videos I think he said
    he’s an appellate of Australia and I’m pretty sure he saves in the forties out
    there at the moment that’s really nice to hear because before the booze in my
    cabin last night so thanks for those comments they really help
    but seriously this is great this is wonderful it’s nobody a peaceful anybody
    wants me Wow broad tonight over now good week tonight you can see do the tight squeeze

    Norfolk Broads: The Beast From The East – Boat Vlog Ep 80

    September 11, 2019


    You can feel it now in the air like that
    horrible icy feeling to it I’m in two minds whether to stay here the another
    night or move because I’ve got a strong feeling that tomorrow I’m gonna be
    frozen in so if I’m gonna be frozen in do I be here or do I be around the
    corner tricky decision to share that sunset I decided to move because there is some
    freezing coming gonna freeze and I’m stuck down here
    there’s no shops it’s not evenly deals at the moment so we go to the next place
    we stop by the supermarket it’s definitely going to free I’m not going
    to put the boat through the ice again this is coming out a couple monthly
    amount of damage didn’t ask it so how’s that for a beautiful beautiful sunset
    see this is what the winter is all about it is as I can show you can appreciate
    bloody freezing but it’s just so worth it on a day like today credible I love it I love it probably
    did this for years though I’m almost and alright just is awesome
    I know it’s not for everybody but I think even tower by the tone of my voice
    just how much I’ve enjoyed this this is what it’s all about it’s incredible
    I love it beautiful if you’re wondering why I enjoy this so
    much is because when you first come out of your comfort zone initially it’s a
    shock and it could be traumatic to some people but after a while it becomes
    invigorating be grating because you feel alive you know you may think old cold
    hands and stuff like that isn’t very pleasant it isn’t very pleasant but
    that’s the whole point you can’t have pleasure without pain so when you have
    days like today where it’s freezing cold and it’s snowing you you counter-effect
    you like today I’m working inside the boat and I’m keeping busy and I’m
    soaring and I’m drilling and bla bla bla bla and I’m not feeling it at all but my
    face is cold my hands are cold and in a funny sort of way it’s exciting it’s you
    feel alive and this is what it’s all about this is why we do it
    now obviously I’m on the Norfolk Broads if I was at sea now I probably freeze to
    death so there are some advantages to being on inland waterways I’m moving the
    boat now from one location to another would be a bit painful but there are
    moments when you just feel absolutely totally at home and at harmony with what
    you’re doing and it’s moments like this that you you know if you’re laying on
    your deathbed it’d be times like this that you think about you’d want to go
    stand in the rain one last time when it’s chucking down in a storm you know
    it just reminds you of what it’s like to be alive and you know we’re not here
    forever so this is why we do it you do it because we love it you do it because
    we enjoy being alive if I wasn’t doing this I would probably be sat at my
    computer at home with the radiators on full blast mind-numbing TV going on in
    the background and I’d be slowly convincing myself right must do this
    must do this must do this must do this got to pay the bills got to pay the
    bills bollocks and it’s a good I Sonya
    Australia well as you can see the beast from the east anyway as you can see it’s
    all frozen maybe where we’re going anywhere
    fact I believe it’s gonna get colder now for a few more days so it’s probably
    gonna get worse I should probably get some more coal I think fortunately for
    me I have a supermarket around the corner and I can get diesel just there
    so well then enjoy it while it’s here I don’t really know what more to say
    really rather then it’s cold in Norfolk

    Norfolk Broads: Chilling & The Rigging – Boat Vlog Ep 74

    September 10, 2019


    try to do some work here this birds
    getting in the way doesn’t speak English as it’s so quiet at the moment and the
    weather’s really quite nice well not nice but it’s not cold I thought I have
    a night out on the broad because it’s just so it’s just so peaceful and quiet
    it’s wonderful I mean there’s not really much to look at especially this term
    here because it’s all of it barren let’s eat alcohol 4G on my phone
    batteries are charged up boats washed got food got wood well winter boating at
    its best bit late getting up this morning it was such a beautiful night
    last night and so relaxing peaceful though I just so snug I can get up but
    even though I’ve got up late look how beautiful this is around here now just
    so misty beautiful in a winter way if you wonder why we’re out on a boat in
    the middle of the winter it’s because of David like this this is fantastic this
    is beautiful and there are high boat in sight we have a queue for the showers this
    morning being on a boat in the winter people think you’re mad trust me
    being mad got nothing to do with it it’s awesome what do you need is heating and
    days like this beautiful beautiful you just don’t get winters now you used to
    when I was a boy I remember it’s just crap look it’s you can still get cold
    you can still free it’s April can be a bit cold but the point I’m trying to
    make is if you’re on a boat especially if you’re in a marina and you have
    heating and electric perhaps it’s just like being anywhere else it’s wonderful
    it’s only what do you have to move around well it’s only a few days now
    until you start doing the rigging on the boat which I’m quite excited about to be
    quite honest the only thing that frustrates me is I can’t
    swage the copper Ferrell’s myself I’m very hands-on I like to do everything
    myself you know for a couple of reasons one it’s obviously cheaper and two you
    get the satisfaction of doing it self so I got to pay somebody to
    swage the ferals but apart from that most of its gonna be done by me the
    whole furlings gonna be rewired new shrouds and got a rig up all the
    lighting again make sure that’s checked over I’ll have to check the no I have to
    change the steaming light and have lights to our lights and all that but
    that can wait till 8:00 let’s just get it up and at least we’ll be able to
    finish off painting the top of the boat because you can’t do jack when the mast
    down but it’d give me a bit of a nuisance with the bridges obviously so
    I’m not going to be putting the mouse up and down
    down up and down every day it’s just crazy so I’m gonna go down towards
    what’s known as part of broad area that’s where Nelson how she learnt to
    sell case any of you wondering about that and I’ll kill the next ten weeks or
    so down there because the boat can come out then and the mass is up so so it’s
    all very exciting at the moment and things are starting to come together now
    and I’m just really chapped about well good morning good afternoon or good
    evening wherever you may be we’re about to go get all these replaced
    there’s two shrouds and one stay in there and I have no idea how much it’s
    gonna cost that’s the ferals I was talking about the swaging I’ve no no
    idea how much this is gonna cost it’s probably gonna be it was surprised about
    50 quid actually it’s gotta be done and I’m looking for to doing it so this I
    got and go back up again and the boat can start looking like saleable really
    whether it’s going to shit as usual I honestly don’t know where the English
    get their reserve from because I’m days like this so it’s bollocks basically but
    it won’t last and we just got to do what we can do on a day like this it’s get me
    indoors today and I can’t even get in the trunk Kevin there’s so much wood in
    there something like about 60 70 feet in that’d be just fine right was very
    strange this week we’ve gone from floods to water is literally dropping much
    though I see still water is just this is gone all that over there that was all flooded
    only a few days ago the clearance under the bridge is unheard of
    that’s almost like somebody’s pulled the plug out it’s a frosty January morning it’s a frosty icy January morning and it’s a toasty I see beautiful cold
    January morning today we’re going to be going down that way Colter shawl which
    is probably the last time I could be going down that way probably go pick the
    rigging up well some of the rigging I say it’s the last time because once we
    get the rigging down we’re gonna be going through that bridge there wherever
    it is sorry four hours down the river your masters gonna be going yeah we’re
    gonna be spending the next few weeks till the end of the season down there
    and then we’re gonna be bringing the boat out and well I can’t see all the
    Broads forever so this may be the last time I got do this trip and it’s
    beautiful River beautiful stretch of river spey an hour and I’m going to
    share some clips with you about that so I’m trying to fall over here it’s all
    I see and it’s such a beautiful day so that’s gonna be really cool that’s the
    plan for today so I want to go up there in a few hours time and see about
    picking up his rigging well good morning folks from Coulter
    shelf and the Norfolk Broads in Norfolk England I have no idea what cultural
    means I will look into it I like to find out what these or these words mean this
    place here isn’t really Norfolk to me it kind of reminds me a bit like
    London and also Sussex and I say that because you’ve got this great big common
    which anybody familiar with London will know are very very common common and
    also this huge house is up here it’s absolutely prosperous it’s very affluent
    normally in the summertime this place is heaving as two pubs here right next to
    each other but you’ll never see on the broad side shows how busy it gets the
    last year I was checking chap in there and you said you had layoffs 18 staff so
    I go someone extremes the other like a seasonal face I’ve never quite
    understood that because life doesn’t stop in the winter so why should all the
    tourism and all that this common here unfortunately is very very mud buggy
    buggy buggy buggy buggy baby buggy and it’s flooded which is a bummer apart
    from that I love this place now last night it was exceptionally cold it
    really was temperatures plummeted and I’m really feeling it today you looked
    at the key heading here you can see the white it’s not paint that’s ice
    so it is really really nippy I’m up here wait for my rigging to get delivered it
    should have got delivered yesterday but at the courier delivered it to the wrong
    address like you do if you’re an idiot so hopefully that’s gonna come today I
    used to be in the logistics industry myself so I know when it comes to
    courious you need to get good weather you get babb on there’s no ifs most
    common ground it’s at all what’s it gonna do a boating you
    might ask everything because I’m waiting for my boat a bit so it’s just trying to
    catch a comment so still a bit early in the morning
    won’t the email to come and once that comes I can take a nice little wander up
    here cuz there’s nice little village up there and this is the end of the
    navigation as well there’s a lock around the corner I haven’t been there but I’m
    gonna have to see if I can find it later on today so it’s over now for the time
    being from coal to shore and hopefully later on today I’ll have my rigging you
    know I woke it up this morning what I can smell is this beautiful smell well
    good morning folks it is a absolutely freezing Sunday morning on the Norfolk
    Broads I am still in coal to show I’m having to wait a few more days so my
    rigging which is a bit of a bomb oh but that’s just where it goes and I
    absolutely freezing but loving every moment of it
    so as I’m gonna have to stay here for a few more days and I’m trying to get a
    video up every week I might as well put up what I’ve got now I was gonna do the
    rigging and the masts going up but I can do that next week now that’s fine so I’m
    gonna upload a video today but I just wanted to say a big thank you to the new
    patrons on patreon we’ve got a John another journal we’ve got a tux tiger
    thank you very very much and to anybody else who wants to become
    a patron on patreon the link is in the description and it’s a big THANK YOU

    or I can just put your first name in to let me know if you would like your name
    in the credits so I’m gonna leave you today now from a very coal
    old but scenic Coulter shawl on the Norfolk Broads and I’ve had a really
    great week really enjoyed it but it is a little bit too cold for me at the moment
    but luckily I’ve got my burn and I’ve got plenty of wood so I’m just gonna do
    some jobs on the boat today which involves epoxy so it’s gonna smell like

    Norfolk Broads: Trees, Leaks & Epoxy – Boat Vlog Ep 75

    September 9, 2019


    well what do you know it’s snowing yes
    cold tonight oh how exciting winter boating snowing
    freezing your nuts off this is fantastic got a parcel how’s that shop frontage
    hey we gotta get out of there now some frozen and muddy and last time you saw
    one of those tree what they say about life having no mercy moment I need
    moment I leave Sun comes out it’s lovely and more I’ve just been freezing since
    Friday there you go got the good east so we’re gonna have a little trip down to buxom get showered up and then we’re
    going down to Barton broad put my mouse tough thing that’s why they call it
    cracked Miller so I’ve been told I mentioned in one of my videos I’m
    stuck on the other side of the bridges floods about trees coming down so you
    can see this one here it’s quite a common sight actually but you really
    wouldn’t want to be in your eye when that happens not at all not at all some ol bucket is more up down there oh you gotta watch out for these cheese
    man I don’t know I pawned the water that goes to find out hey have you gone
    through one problem that’s how I changed them with the very sound of water not
    the middle of the winter I can assure you not good it was so windy the other
    night every night unaware he came for just sunny turned up a tow and
    knew like crazy and then it’s gone and even myself down in the town I pulled
    out blue tarp a tree there’s no real solution for it really because these
    trees up here I forget most of our now but did you see they grow like weeds and the ground just lifts up like carpet so
    it’s not going thing I mean if it wasn’t for brought authority and the
    Environment Agency or whoever is responsible for digging them how this
    river would come to a standstill put it down quickly and once the river stopped flowing then
    it starts flooding everywhere so it’s a crucial it should brew shall bit of
    river this to keep clear and it’s not only about navigation when flooding if
    you can see that little Robin dispensary I want to beautiful day to be on the
    roads but you often wild Lauren’s but as a
    perfect example that’s a big-ass tree as well perfect
    example of why Maureen excellent sweets there’s not such a great idea there’s another one there all of their
    aware if you you learn be careful sure awesome vehicle pump
    these out there okay here is your urgent report there
    isn’t there’s enough loss bone snapping the
    tree see I’ve never seen this anywhere before mmm that looks a bit more like it
    that’s going in the furling the further these are the compression fittings the
    wedges no sorry let me start that again these are the wedges that go in the
    compression fittings someone called stay lock so I’m gonna
    called Norseman and this son called hi Maude which I like because they separate
    the strands better but there seem to be a lot more expensive this is 20 quid
    worth here believe it or not so you know bursting certainly isn’t cheap but once
    these are done if they’re done properly they’re supposed to be stronger than the
    actual rope itself can’t quite figure how that works from the ego so we’re
    getting there and now we just need a day like today
    now we can start get it all put back together yeah if you look familiar with
    these it’s pronounced stay on the right side of winter now I wonder if you can
    see their rainbow one of those lovely winter days today
    and it’s come right after very wet previous day so I know I’ve got a leak
    so I’ve got my hatch apart take the wood off I’m gonna get a brand new piece in
    there I’m gonna pops you the hell out of it make sure this baby is there’s
    nothing more irritating and having a leak on a boat especially in the winter
    one is tricky to fix you know nothing will go off and set misses a day like
    this but also the fact that I’ve come to realize that when you have a leak on the
    boat it can actually ruin your boat you can do so much damage you can destroy
    your bulkheads ultimately so we’re quite anal when it comes to leaks now that’s
    just a tip and I’m gonna get it fixed so lovely sunny day we’re busy I’m working
    on the boat I wonder if you can see that seeing on the hatch that’s right where’s
    gonna drop down done what we can do cordelia rigging at the moment so we’re
    going the library work on the forum so over today and I hope it’s nice and
    sunny where you are this hatch is in the process of being restored that’s why it
    looks like it’s all being bleached and you know it does it’s actually beatboxing up in nice and sexy it’s
    windy as hell folks the weather but it’s not all doom and gloom because if you
    hadn’t chucked down I wouldn’t have discovered a leak here looking a bit
    messy at the moment but this is the early stages here I built up some layers
    of marine fly here and there all the process of being a pop seed and the idea
    is and the water comes down here to stop it from getting too far down years ago a
    hole in the to the wood that’s in here all right
    keepers trouble for tonight I think nearly there
    almost water type very pleased with that it’s nice for job comes together right
    come in the market for a new jib or a couple of spare ones I’ve had a quote
    for new jib and it ranges anywhere from about 800 to
    1,200 pounds so costly that happening for a while I can see online you can buy
    secondhand ones I thought might be best to go online and ask us somebody watch
    it might know somewhere what’s got to be 13 what’s the longest bit enough with
    the leech I think the laugh is 35 inches 28 30 yes
    the foot is 13 the Meech is 28 and the left/right interested and it makes perfect sense
    almost well it’s very moral early evening but I decided because it’s the
    end of the week I want to go out on the broad have some peace and serenity
    tonight find it a little bit difficult trying to get stuff done on the boat
    when I’m on the war into this high temperatures all day the people walking
    past and the minute sunny turn into hours of the next thing you know you
    spent about three hours talking to people and I do a lot of in the summer
    thing is I’m doing so I thought maybe if I come out here I live here to get
    something down but we’re making progress we’re getting some stuff done so I’m
    quite chuffed and yeah we have a nice night on the corner and shut up so happy
    days I will say there’s some chap who watches these videos I think he said
    he’s an appellate of Australia and I’m pretty sure he saves in the forties out
    there at the moment that’s really nice to hear because before the booze in my
    cabin last night so thanks for those comments they really help
    but seriously this is great this is wonderful it’s nobody a peaceful anybody
    wants me Wow broad tonight over now good week tonight you can see do the tight squeeze
    getting in here how’s that so let’s get the Kevlar its upload a video okay so
    I’m gonna sign out for this week because I’m really not gonna get anything done
    today however stay tuned thank you for
    watching and thanks again to my viewers subscribers patrons on patreon and if
    you like the videos make sure you subscribe like and all that sort of jazz

    SailAway 46 | Live-Aboard Sailboat Tour – Hunter Legend 35.5 | Sailboat Living Sailing Vlog

    September 8, 2019


    do you wanna sail away I wanna say where
    do you wanna sail with me hey y’all so today we beard we would do
    a just a little boat tour showed me the outside of the boat a lot because we
    have done a lot of upgrades Eric spent a lot of work on it what we haven’t
    shouldnt do the inside of the boat very much figure today I’ve got a little bit
    of downtime the child is with Nonna and Grandpa and Eric is out working so it’s
    just me on the boat and it’s pretty quiet my Noctis but I do have a list of
    things that Eric would like me to tell you about on the boat we’ll see if we
    get to all of them we have gotten a lot of questions about what kind of boats
    oil is and she is a hundred ninety five legend 35 five we believe she is the
    last one ever built we don’t know for sure we can’t get any information about
    it apparently all the records are destroyed but we know that she was built
    in December of 1995 and 1995 was the last
    year that they built them so there’s a very good chance that she is if not the
    last one pretty close she’s got an open transom and Stern
    seats which we’re only on the newer ones she’s got a gray marine a 95 touchscreen
    with a quantum Wi-Fi Raider radar not Rader excuse me and currently there’s
    just a wind generator for charging okay it’s really bright out here so I’m going
    to go down below oh that’s so much better and actually see all right so
    you’ve probably seen a lot of this and our videos but all votes are different
    so we figured if we would show you kind of the cool little things that are going
    on with Leila obviously she is 35 and a half feet and right now I am standing in
    our galley kitchen she does have nice big refrigerator we
    obviously are not stocked up since we just got back there’s lots of room for
    fun things have a stove I’m gonna here let me show you that I’m gonna two
    burner stove in an oven which is pretty regularly let me show you where the
    trash bin is in case you ever would entail it’s right here underneath the
    sink and all their cleaning stuff I don’t really have a designated pantry we
    just kind of use whatever space we got so in our floors here we have all of our canned goods all the way here – and all of our pots
    and pans located underneath the oven which is very convenient that’s like a li pretty much everything
    you’ve seen everything it works show you the baby’s room so this used to
    be where Eric and I slept because it’s like a queen-size birth I believe it was
    really nice now we have it as the baby’s room and then we just use the other half
    as storage all the baby’s toys we didn’t have the baby in the Bieber but he fell
    out of it one time so we moved him here where it’s only a foot drop instead of
    the three feet there’s his clothes storage and he’s got
    some nice cool fancy light better there we got some access hold on you can feed
    two hands so got Indian access on this side which if you saw that’s where we
    had to start the motor won’t yet jumpstart it we fix that problem thank
    goodness and then speaking of motor access we also have it right here you’ve seen us do a lot of work on that
    fit we have replaced our toilet go to the bathroom yeah with an electric
    toilet so let’s do if you ever are on our boat toilet paper is in this first
    one here is our shower just so math here’s our diaper pail
    luckily we’re potty training so hopefully we won’t need that very much
    longer then on this side we have our nav station and underneath we’ve just kind
    of got a nice little catch-all where most of our equipment goes flares very
    important other safety equipment locating signals we’ve got air horns
    back there whatever this is personal water purification we also have a bunch
    of books um you know case shit hits the fan it’s Bible skills some celestial
    navigation mama-mama wakey-wakey okay the Abacos
    passages Eric swears by this one we’re gonna start fishing more and
    hopefully catch things that we can’t eat hats of course I mean a lot of hats on a
    boat here’s our lovely dining room that also converts into a bed vacuum cleaner
    has dogs on boats shed a lot just broke it apparently that was not the button to
    turn it on don’t hit that button alright let me fix that all right we do have a little TV it’s
    actually just a computer monitor that we have def we’ve got a Apple TV we aren’t
    in anywhere with Wi-Fi at the moment so we don’t use that very much at all
    usually we don’t have the doors on our bedroom but we put them back on so we do have our own little space my
    full room our closets
    everything’s getting washed at the moment the way up to and a wind scoop
    what’s this awesome I never use them they’re really cool we also have a bunch
    of net to go over all the hatches or when we have everything open so you
    don’t get the bun from you because everybody knows that the bugs are what
    can kill ya I mean not really you just make your life miserable so we have
    reflectors that we have actually cut so we just took one of the car reflectors
    for the windshield and cut them to fit so they are in all of our patches
    they’re also in the skylights we have them for like literally everything and
    it was probably what like five bucks really helps keep the boat nice and cool
    other than that I think I’ve showed you everything at
    least down here so now you know Thanks well hello all Christmas just
    passed we hope y’all had a great one and of course we hope you have a excellent
    new year and mostly we want to thank everybody for watching thanks for all
    likes all the comments being there being there and of course to our patreon they
    appreciate you guys more than you know yeah right here here is to see you for
    you thanks for making our 2018 awesome and here’s a awesome 2019
    cheers Cheers and now we bring you I mean maybe not

    SailAway 64 | We Made an Offer on a Liveaboard Sailboat! | Sailing Around the World

    September 7, 2019


    do you wanna say away with me integral
    part of the boat line process is going to look at boats we are in Richmond
    Virginia we are going to get a look at three different folks this weekend first
    one we’re going to like right now just got here and it is a hunter for sixty
    two thousand one in Delta bill so we got about an hour drive and then tomorrow
    two more so it’s full weekend help me find a good well we are on our way to book number
    one for the weekend where this is what we actually technically flew up here for
    it’s lower on the price range super low hours all these boats are very similar
    in the fact that there this one is 104 60 one of them is 104 66 which is just a
    couple years newer version of the 460 with a very minor differences the other
    is a hundred thousand four seventy which is was supposed to be sort of a luxury
    version of these made by a boat builder in Florida who partnered up with honnor
    to do these things and the only way look make it to but anyway they’re all
    related they’re very similar type books and so this one here is what we actually
    came to see and we’re like you know it’s a three-hour drive or something like
    that three and a half down to North Carolina where the other two boats are
    so why not fly six hours so that we can then drive six hour round trip we have
    to fly all the way up here and not going to see more boats
    doesn’t make any sense so yeah we’re almost to the first boat hopefully it’s
    as nice as it looks in the pics meantime look at this great scenery it’s lovely
    up here this time of year all right well here we are this is
    Gaston 460 hopefully my hands aren’t shaking too bad from cold
    I’m very nice and can haul especially for a 2001 well this one you know
    doesn’t have a ton of amenities but the price is good it’s got the basic stuff
    that we want the really important things generator an AC got some definite dirty
    top sides but yeah everything else just looks like it’s just dirt they got the
    adjustable cockpit adjustable jib leads yeah below yeah there’s definitely some crazy to
    these video baby no it’s very inconsistent and
    I’m not sure why that is a wonder if try itself they decided like start sanding
    and then seal it with but that side looks like wider in color the overall
    tone of the wood I don’t mind at all it’s nicer you know in the newer ones
    more varnish a little bit better continuity language so it’s got
    whitefish I’d rather have an ice maker that’s cool it’s good spot for it may be
    a good spot for it we use more ice than we do or I would
    say wine I drink a lot you don’t really need it B to be nice right generally speaking add shape in here for
    the price for sure day to you and you learn three and a half hour drive south
    yeah we’re going to see a hundred Houston for 70s to 2001 only two ever
    made that’s good or bad I think they were kind of overpriced
    first base straight yeah just didn’t catch on obviously because I only sold
    two of them yeah what I think was this I only saw one of them
    all right so this is available market for a long time and I think it’s
    probably just because it’s unusually got kind of unusual colors on the side and
    stuff like that I mean it’s loaded yeah completely loaded so anyway I’m going to
    take a look at it the destination is on your left
    on the line hundred middle street oh all right that’s various terms cool pretty well
    done I mean not that it wouldn’t be on to vote number three – first a day
    but three all together this is a hunter 466 2004 yeah Morehead City just left
    where we knew Bern Bern to see the hell’s m2400 466 we’ve seen a couple of
    these already so super low hours it sounds like it’s pretty nice it looks
    like it was we shall see that is off left recovers sure got it set up nice
    station nice yeah not like a big thing but it is that this is whiter than the
    actual yep don’t know why I do like I like the counter yeah it’s a
    cage me where do you want me to go so here we are you know our sweet sweet
    luxury accommodations and at the end of our whirlwind boat tour of the northern
    south we got made fun of for calling this a trip to the north where it’s
    really cold but it is really cold and to us this is now the north because we’re
    so far south so it’s the northern south come sit yeah tell the people about the
    boats oh so we saw three votes today that’s vacant this is on an all hunter
    weekend because in our searches as we’ve shown you a bunch of those we’ve looked
    at kind of circled around to the hotter for 60s for 66 and 49 s just because the
    interior volume and layout is just it’s too good to pass up
    plus when I got to looking into them a little heavier I mean their construction
    is really kick-ass um you know people have differing opinions on the hunters
    out there obviously we like because we had one but they’re they’re very very
    solid boats being our trig is something that people just have to get used to
    sailing it the right way yeah you’ll get to see whether we learn how to do that
    or not hopefully yeah about yet not about yet but we kind of honed in on the
    hunters for that reason just the amount of cabin space we needed the amount of
    just overall space we needed overall features they just they come pretty much
    packed with that stuff so the first but was 100 for
    60 and talked a little bit about it I was really dirty which is fine it’s not
    a knock on the boat itself we could see past the dirt but it just wasn’t set up
    the way we needed it to be yeah this was a 2001 and the cheapest of any boats
    that we’ve looked at so we were expecting a little dirt yes that thing
    do you have to do a little bit and add some things to it but to get a you know
    primo price that it would be worth worthwhile but yeah there was just a lot
    of pieces and parts that just had that aged look you know some of the plastics
    had yellowed in different places and the wood was very uneven just probably
    hadn’t been particularly cared for over the years so places that got more white
    or faded just kind of had a lot of that going on so we came out of that kind of
    disappointed and then once all the second boat second foot we saw was the
    hunter house some 470 now this is an unusual boat in that it’s based off 104
    60 but it was a joint effort between hunter and Johan Johan Helsing jumpy
    Nelson just a few it kind of just has all the bells and whistles in it has a
    lot of the finishes and colors that you would expect a more of a like Island
    Packet style every type but they did not catch on her
    there was only to whoever made and you know it was like $200,000 more expensive
    than the standard hunter hh4 60s back then so we like hunters but they’re not
    intended to be the Cadillacs of you know but it’s a really cool boat so we
    wouldn’t we went and saw it and I think because it’s such an unusual boat and
    there were only two out there at all I think it’s just been overlooked because
    people didn’t really know what they were looking at and it’s kind of it does have
    a couple of unusual color choices inside that we kind of decided we we think we
    like and can work with them that like is I think we can embrace them and make
    them I think I like it more than you do yeah but the outside of the is bu before
    so we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was and it is loaded with
    everything practically everything we could want to go cruise and and detach
    ourselves from you know land for months at a time if we wanted to so and the
    price is crazy lows not as low as that first boat but it’s you know
    Furcal host of it has on it it’s it’s surprising and so this is a boat that
    supposedly had $200,000 worth of upgrades that is now basically just
    duking it out on the market with all the other hundreds before 60s and for 66 and
    so it’s depreciate yeah and it just wasn’t a concept that caught on so
    nobody and nobody out there cares that it’s a wholesome right but it’s it’s
    cool though but number three is a 2400 466 it was really really really nice the
    owners have taken amazing care of it super low hours it’s like 600 hours on
    the motor and really um couldn’t find any fault
    with the boat it was it was super clean and polished and just not mark on it
    anywhere just really really nice but I feel bad that we uh we already kind of
    be very confused this one we wanted before we got there
    2004 so it’s a newer boat that’s good and they did make some upgrades in the
    hall and a few other things but it’s the highest priced of all these we’ve seen
    down here and and it just doesn’t have the gear and the additions such as you
    know it doesn’t have a thing he doesn’t have an arch or solar or wind you know
    water maker these are all things that the Houston does have electronics are
    dated their original electronics it just doesn’t make sense for us because the
    price is just too good on the hunter helps them to not go that direction with
    everything that it has included so we had a little interior design work to do
    but that is like the only concession if you want to come with that so that is
    the rundown of the boats we’ve seen this weekend’s and we have gone ahead made an
    offer that’s not official yet I emailed him that to write up an offer for the
    hunter Houston and we put that offer in at 150 K flat and
    see what they come back at alright so that is it for this trip we’re gonna go
    get some breakfast I don’t know what else we’re gonna do for the rest of
    today now flight doesn’t leave for 4:45 and then we get into Palm Beach it like
    9:00 so whirlwind trip as you look through season 5 and you wonder how we made it this far as you look through ceases that coming in you wonder how he made it

    Sailing through the Breath Taking Mountains to Explore Kotor, Montenegro

    September 2, 2019


    Today we begin our journey entering the
    Bay of Kotor in Montenegro. It’s about 17 nautical miles to
    the ancient walled town. As we sail through the mountains we are dumbstruck by its magnificence. A bit difficult to see, but out there is a small man-made island with an old
    Catholic Church on it and then to this direction is Kotor. They passed us. We rest at anchor in a pristinely calm bay. Below deck we almost forget that we’re on the water. We look up to realize
    this fiercely gorgeous boat dropped anchor just beside us. I’m Martin. This is
    my boat. The name is Styrr. The boat is about 100 years old and I own her now for twelve years. Absolutely king captain that one. Kotor, Motenegro. An ancient city. Some of whom’s structure date back to the sixth century built by the Romans.
    Although, when Kotor was settled, no one knows, but it was before the Romans came
    around and fortified it. Once fortified and probably before, Kotor’s history
    began to oscillate between peace, siege plunder, and rebuild. Kotor, to me, is an
    example of how countries expand and collapse, shift power, and sometimes
    disappear completely, but a well-built city or community can outlast empires.
    With Kotor being the focal point of such an extraordinary landscape it’s no
    wonder it’s been fought over for centuries. Now it is a relatively quiet
    town that receives a lot of tourism especially from cruise ships. Oh and Kotor is full of cats. The cats are
    loved by the locals. Do either of you know how to get there? I
    think so yeah. Okay that’s good cuz I don’t. I think you have to go through the old fort
    and then just take the stairs up onto the wall. I think there’s an entrance to
    the top there that way or further along that way as well. Yeah I went to the bottom of it down here so if you just walk through. We began a short trek up the wall to see
    the vantage point from which Kotor was defended on many occasions. We were
    joined by Ralph. He’s a stray. After enjoying the exquisite location we
    began making way out of the bay. We sailed by Our Lady of the Rocks. This is
    a man-made island. It was built by the continual throwing of rocks into the bay
    and they also sank ships full of rocks so as to create a tribute to the Virgin
    Lady and Child. Beating our way through the channel allowed for a perfect
    opportunity for Jackson and Tara to execute their very first single-handed
    tacks. We made it to Tivat and we came ashore and found these two poor chaps bailing this boat. Thanks for watching. Subscribe for
