    How to Clean a Sailboat : How to Soap & Scrub a Sailboat

    September 21, 2019

    Hi, I’m Ches Rainier, welcome to Expert Village.
    Today we’re going to be talking about some techniques used to clean a fiberglass boat.
    Alright, now we’re going to talk about some techniques to use with the soap of the boat,
    because you’ve got to put a little soap in sometimes otherwise it just won’t get clean.
    So you’ve got to get yourself a good biodegradable soap. So a little drops, not too much, and adds some water. Most of the time you
    can get away with just a rinse down and let it dry. If you keep up with your maintenance
    then soap really isn’t necessary. What I like to do is hit all the bird droppings
    and areas where there’s a lot of stains going on the boat first, and then go over the rest
    of the boat lightly because it doesn’t need to be scrubbed quite as hard. This is just
    a plastic brush you can get at any hardware store. I tested it out on some of the surfaces
    here and it’s not too abrasive on the finish of the boat so that’s the main thing you’ve
    got to watch out for. You need it to be abrasive enough to get off whatever you’re trying to
    scrub off. Some of these bird droppings can be pretty stubborn, but you definitely don’t
    want to ruin the finish of the boat.

    Welcome to the first night on board.
    I’ve moved onto the boat now, and as you can see… it’s really homely
    not here yet… not really But no problem. Can you see my bed in front? Looks pretty cozy, but it’ll be fine. I am totally
    eagerly awaiting the first night; how it feels like staying here on CÖLNISCH. I have a little something to eat here. A little something to eat and beer I have here. I also have a laptop here if it gets boring… and the most important thing: Now we have dinner for now. Nice, delicious dinner. So, and tonight we’re gonna have delicious white cabbage salad.
    Not the most challenging but somehow I have now actually no lust at all
    to prepare anything anymore. just because the kitchen looks like this
    and somehow, well, a four-course menu I can’t get there now, so just make it nice today Well, look what this looks like. It’s getting dawny. The harbour is quiet There’s no one left.
    yes i’m chilling my way here now. on my wooden bench my cockpit bench and imagine me
    that the water around me is already and the birds are chirping and
    the cranes crane and so on and enjoy my delicious
    cabbage salad… That thing was lying in the sun for a long time today. Yeah yeah, lunch and dinner in one. That’s how it’s done! Soo, the dinner’s over, the beer’s open. Let’s go up to the front. This will be my favourite place It’s beautiful, isn’t it? As you can see, this is the first time
    I’m closing the hatch from the inside. slowly the night comes in here It gets dark outside and you can see
    not really much of me anymore. so maybe… I have made myself a bit comfortable with an air mattress and sleeping bag and pillow I will watch a movie now and then spend the first night here on board I’m very excited. Good night dear ones! Good morning! So, the first night on board is done and I feel Pretty good. I slept well, the mattress is not quite right as you can see. It’s not really pointed in the front. and that’s why I’m lying down
    funnyish, but apart from that I slept really well. It’s nice to have slept in here and noticing that it felt good. it feels like home… and this is now my home here and that’s why tonight was so important to make this work well and to make me feel comfortable. Then I can go and do some handicrafts again. Today I think I’ll take the stairs from the today i will finish the stairs from the companionway again, so i don’t have to climb over the machine if you want to get in or out of the cabin. that’s one thing, and then I’m gonna start constructing the cockpit dodger. And a little tidying up, that wouldn’t be bad either 😉

    Un-Armed PIRATES & INTRUDERS – Self Defense on Sailboats against THEFT(Patrick Childress Sailing 42)

    September 18, 2019

    hello we are Patrick and Rebecca
    Childress on the sailboat Brick House. Rebecca and I both know five
    people who have been captured and held hostage for ransom in the southeastern
    Philippines on the island of Jolo. two of those people did not make it out
    alive of course this happens elsewhere in the
    world like off of Somalia and other places but in this video we aren’t
    talking about these heavily armed pirates that when they approach your
    boat you’re shit out of luck you don’t have a chance the world of escaping them
    and if you think you want to pop off a few rounds from your 308 or ar-15 go
    right ahead because it’ll be the last thing that you do before you become
    Obliberated so in this video we aren’t talking about heavily armed pirates we
    are talking about the guys who come on your boat with machetes or intruders in
    the middle of the night that are there to steal your outboard we are talking
    about non-lethal defense to send a very clear message to these guys that they
    made the wrong decision to come upon your boat and we know other
    people that have been out on the ocean in the middle of the night two o’clock
    in the morning accosted by a fishing boat trying to pull up alongside and our
    friends are calling Mayday Mayday on channel 16 and nobody’s responding if
    they had some pepper spray or something to lob onto that fishing boat they
    would have been in great shape but they were able to pull ahead motor wise and
    then throw a big wad of polypropylene line over the side and then that caught
    the property of these approaching fishermen and that stopped them in the
    water but you know the last thing I want to do is if a fisherman is approaching
    the boat or somebody’s approaching the boat we’re not quite sure what their
    intentions are but it doesn’t seem so it doesn’t seem so good the last thing I
    want to do is you know shoot off a gun and kill one of them I mean that’s just
    gonna land me in a rotten prison wherever I am but since it’s at a distance I’d
    like to be able to lob something at him too so that they definitely know that
    we’re not the boat to pick so that’s the idea we were in a mall in Richards Bay
    South Africa we saw all these arms in the window we
    could not believe what they had but it turns out they weren’t real
    they were co2 powered so there’s a lot of good ideas in there but what the most
    amazing thing was a simple paintball gun a lot of people in the world play
    paintball and where they shoot each other with die marked balls but now you
    change the projectile in those guns they become very impressive and so let’s go
    to the mall we’ll take a look at a lot of these things and then you decide what
    you think might work best yeah and let us know in the comments down below which
    ones you think you’d have on your boat if some other ideas that you have for
    the same kind of thing we’re always looking for more ideas nice simple ideas
    things that don’t cost a lot of money but what would you have on your boat let
    us know in the comments down below of course you have to be careful where you
    bring these things they’re perfectly legal in South Africa but in Australia
    I wonder if even a slingshot is legal there you can get a lot of trouble for
    bringing even these toys into foreign countries so you have to research the
    customs and other laws in these foreign countries before you go cruising in with
    them yeah a good place to do that just go on new and they’ll they’ll have
    it pretty much in the description what you can and can’t bring you gets not the
    gospel but it’s a pretty good place to start yeah there’s another technical
    problem in a mall you know all the incredible reverb in the sound in the
    air in the mall and we had that same problem in this store so the sound is
    not that great to start with yeah we had the manager was able to close one door
    entry door he couldn’t close both of them and look like these shut up but the
    one door did help quite a bit then I put the video through audio scrubbing
    cleaning and that helped quite a bit so it gets better the audio gets better as
    we go along and also his accent there’s so many different accents in South
    Africa and his is Durban accent well Durban Indian Afrikaans a little bit of
    everything He is a good representation of accents in South
    Africa so effect I went through a lot of trouble to put in the closed captions
    and making sure that that’s accurate so just click on the CC button down there
    on the bottom if maybe you’re having trouble understanding or hearing any
    of the spoken words, and there are lots of languages too – okay let’s go to the mall… okay Security Hyper Store…kay holy moly look at these guys
    submachine gun? yeah it looks pretty serious look on the box
    the co2 air power. Let’s go in and get a picture… okay well hello there Chevron how are you
    doing this morning this is Chevron we’ve talked to her I
    don’t know 20 times I’m sure she’s been educating us along with Zain, and all the
    defense’s yeah this is amazing because we were just walking down the mall one
    day and saw all of these guns wow that’s pretty serious stuff but as
    it turns out none of it shoots gunpowder, none of them whatsoever. and we actually try to concentrate on
    anything that does not require a license and yet be able to defend
    yourself okay so all of these toys the co2 powered paintball guns all of that
    in South Africa is there an age limit for buying any of these? Our company
    actually doesn’t allow us to sell it to under 18. They would have to be
    older than 18 and present your ID as well for safety purposes. So for somebody living
    on a sailboat like us that’s nothing but one big headache to have some kind of a gun powdered firearm onboard, but yeah we saw the co2 pistols and rifles so what I
    actually wanted to start off with one of these ones.. actually one of our
    customers favorites. It’s a BB gun so shooting these metal balls here
    operating with co2 gas which is a non-lethal gas it won’t be able to affect you whatsoever as well and can you buy these all over the world
    um most places that do actually have it like we said in America and stuff, they do
    actually have different sizes. in South Africa we are standard
    size which is a 12 gram gas canister that’s 12 grams 12 grams. So our
    customers favorite because of the realistic feature of this gun itself. As you can see it’s just like a real gun. So it’s very simple. Very easy, very simple…With this gun you can have the options of semi-automatic and fully automatic so
    Let’s just say you need to shoot just one bullet. And then you can always switch it to full automatic mode…Holey Tamoley! That can shoot 19 bullets in 5 seconds!
    bullets in five seconds that’s That’s Impressive! That IS impressive! Now that’s pellets? BBs..BBs. Our
    customers really do love this gun, the reason being it’s an excellent deterrent. if
    you pull this out you just have to Cock it, and you are gonna think that I do have
    a real gun in my hand. It’s very realistic, the cock feature. So guys, its actually It’s actually an excellent deterrent, to actually deter your guys away.. our number one baby for our customers. Now, and it operates off if this…CO2 cartridge… and where does the CO2 cartridge go? Slip the CO2 canister here. So you take your Allen key, and open up a notch. This part comes out. Your gas canister, you just drop it inside, you tighten it up, and you are ready for use. And how long can you use that cartridge for. It will give you approximately 35 shots. 35 shots. Oh. So you went through almost a complete. almost through a complete canister. With automatic mode, it’s very easy to finish up your gas because of the rapid fire. Wow! okay now with the BB like that say like
    12 meters away what is it going to feel like. Well with BBs, we give you up
    to 10 meters we can be looking at a piercing so it will be into your skin. at
    10 meter up to 10 meters , where you just have to kinda pop them out. Most of the time, our guys know they don’t even shoot
    the gun you just put it out, (cock it) and they go away
    and it goes away…it works like a charm! yeah okay and once you put the cartridge
    in there can you pull it out six months later and expect it to work? No you can not. How long? Because it’s a gas, at
    the end of the day we give it to you to keep your gun secure at the same time
    you’ll say within 5 days you should use up your gas when you’re not using your
    gun over a longer duration, do not leave an open gas inside it’s just wastes and wears out the seals of your gun. So look
    after the gun so your gun can last a long time. Okay next thing I’d like to show the hand pistols would actually be the
    paintball gun specifically this one
    it’s our latest range for self-defense especially. It’s a six-shot you just load
    your… this here is actually going to be loaded with solids and peppers. so the solids
    whatever you hit you literally just break. I will get you a sample to show
    you the solids and the peppers. Okay, but starting with though, this is just a regular paint ball gun that a lot of people use when they play paintball yes
    and hit each other with the ball that explodes with ink. I will show
    you the paintball as well so that you do have a good idea of what we actually are looking at here. At the end of the day, remember, it is just a toy. But a toy that can actually defend you at the same time so that’s regular paint ball if you
    just want to mess around, take a few shots have some fun that’s your normal
    paint…and they really don’t hurt when you get hit. No…its a small sting nothing too bad. Thats why those guys
    wear the masks when they play? Yeah have to protect their face…don’t want it in the eye! it ’s very important to have your mask in to protect your eyes and protect your face. Yeah safety equipment… Ok, so our defense range…these are solid balls. solid balls. solid balls, how they work is… whatever you hit…you practically – straight through these ones here. BONES…you are looking at damage wise with these guys where you can break a bone or two. It’s a
    non-lethal item so it will not pierce the skin it’s meant to just defend yourself
    to put the person down so it gives you the upper hand in the situation for you to
    actually move away from the surrounding areas. Pepper balls are my very favorite
    reason being, one or two pepper balls are excellent. The guy cannot actually see
    you. Also if there are multiple guys, one two pepper balls are effective on all
    of them. The moment it passes in the air they all breathing at the end they can not
    attack you They are just trying to breathe themselves. I mean if I wore a lot of shirts or a
    jacket will it still explode? If it’s hits on a surface…you see it’s gonna
    pop so even next to them if you can fire It because the moment it goes in the
    air they also taking it in, if you find they are wearing too much clothing yeah so you don’t have to hit
    the person just hit next to them and you can hard-surfaced next to them. yeah hit a hard
    surface next to them. I do, personally prefer the chest reason being the moment
    it hits , they breathe it in, and are out on the ground. They cannot attack you and what percentage
    pepper is this? That’s a seven percent so you also do have ten percent peppers it’s ten percent that’s our bigger
    paintball guns which is more stronger as well. this specific one does pack a punch
    though so what I like about this gun is you load your bullets you load your gas
    inside the moment you load your gas it does NOT activate so you can keep this
    for a year for example in your gun.. There is no issue. The time comes when you need to use your gas, you press down here Here only it activates the gas and there
    after you can.. Thats good. Thats good…reason being it’s always going to be ready for
    self-defense you don’t have to think is there gas in my gun…do I have to worry. In
    a self-defense situation you don’t have time to be worrying about is there gas in my pocket?
    You want to be able to defend yourself and that works like a charm… And it uses still that
    same cartridge co2? Yes, co2 cartridge. which are sold nationwide.
    and you still get about 25 shots out of it…or 20 if glass because it takes more power. That should be enough, hah? More than enough… 1 mag is 6 shots, and you get 3. Pretty decent… you get 3 magazines CDs and so you now okay that
    uses the smaller caliber but can you get 10% pepper spray in the smaller caliber
    the smaller ones this is our latest Ninja King gun
    because most of our paintball guns, and if you do see the size of it pretty big guns, so our
    guys required actually required something more compact to keep on them and also non
    Lethal at the same time which are smaller ones are here, as for the
    bigger rifles is a variety you can pick from there as well we shoot the bigger pellets, and in the range on on this for hitting a something an
    exploding uh bear in mind, wind really makes a big difference because these Pellets are light as well so indoors, you are gonna get a
    longer distance easy on them will be on 40 meters, 30 meters. 40 meters. 40.
    I’ll give you about forty now without wind. Indoors. Damage-wise even twenty meters you are breaking a bone…so you are doing some good damage with those as well. Bear in mind you do upgrade your gun though. We know people who have been harassed
    people on foreign boats and if they And if they could have launched something like this
    onto their boat gas it would have been a great deterrent more powerful bigger
    thing would be the rifle you think there’s larger diameter paint then we
    just take this one for example so the advantage on these ones here is you got
    a hopper feed this hopper feed can hold up to 200 bullets we have a choice
    between 45 or 200 so it gives you a lot of shots you know that even if you’re
    not the best person to shoot you will still be able to Hit your target in the end.With this here, it takes the bigger canisters this is easier you will be getting more
    shots as well approximately 150 or so it depends on your pressure gauge at the
    end of today the extendable stop to make it more
    comfortable to hold. You do racks on the end of your gun as well to add a laser sight or
    torch so at night as well you will be secured you will be able to
    use it. Very simple you just cock, and…you fire…Very easy to use.. ladies at home, so very easy to use
    as you can see there’s just a safety catch so the kids can’t play wit it…and it uses quite a
    different canister of gas canister with the advantage of being able to get it in
    multiple sizes: 4 all the way up to 24 ounces so it depends on the size if you
    go the more shots again yeah approximately on a 20 ounce you get
    about 1400 shots but then again this is just a standard paintball gun canister
    of gas which you can buy wherever they play paintball with a living and you can
    fill it up with it as well okay so these are all toys really but ichange
    the projectile and it becomes quite a different piece of machinery.
    exactly. Now the the diameter of the projectile…is it the smaller or the bigger? No more smaller these are the glass
    breakers. These are the proper ones for self-defense whatever these hit, it breaks
    for example, glass, like I said, RIBS, LEGS, You can do some major damage with these here.
    Rubber balls they actually use in riot control they give a hell of a
    sting the guys kind of use this actually to turn the person to go away. And your next combo the best thing you will be getting is Pepperballs. Pepper balls are my very
    favorite, reason being, these ones are ten percent when you do hit this it’s
    very effective in the store, we have to pop it we have to evacuate the store
    And won’t be able to open. Even next Sore we would have to evacuate because it’s gonna go
    through the AIr con vents. Its quite powerful. now there is there are there
    any guns that really don’t look so militaristic like a gun more like a toy
    you know a real toy Something that doesn’t look so offensive
    yeah the coloration is more benign no pink ones yeah I think what it would be
    much better. On our BBs, we did have a pink one no lie. yeah you also
    have this like double-barrel shotgun another unit that just came in recently
    on the self defense range so the best thing about this is they actually
    concentrated on having a proper shotgun feature on this way it’s a double
    shot so how you gonna load this again you use a solid and a pepper you can
    eitherchoose between left right or twin shot with this gun here as
    well you can add a laser sight so at night You won’t have issues trying to
    find your target look at your laser light and attack with this gun here as well, you also have the same features that it has a laser light on it too so that the people
    can see the laser. All these guns whichever Gun has a bracket, it does allow
    you to see. Thats the mounting bracket for the laser. Now with this here, it also has a safety feature of keeping your gas and keeping
    your bullets in then laying your gun idle. …a scary situation comes through you press down here, and it’s ready to activate and then you ready to fire okay okay so
    you need to have your you know some in your pocket ready yeah with this gun you
    you do have to have ammo on you cuz it’s a proper shotgun feature so the only
    concentration I’m actually having two shots inside yes they wanted to keep the
    original feature of the shotgun and the gas can just drop it down here so with
    the allen key you just put it inside of ear twist it down yeah he’s gonna do check this moron as I
    see because okay so that cartridge, the co2
    cartridge goes right in there oh crap it in on the stock and then when you do
    need it yeah then exactly then you’re just gonna put our ties amid put your
    gun down have it loaded leave it down time call you need to use it you know
    it’s there yes stop activates and you need to find okay good you’re not
    letting gas leak out from you yes because you’re not gonna have that in
    the back of your mind thank you is there gas in my gun
    because the last thing you need is to use your gun there’s no gas over there
    and then you pull the chicken mechanics internet yeah and then of course these
    this takes a little more time to arm because it’s a it’s a larger your
    canister you have to screw it on the advantages of this is we do sell things
    like a valve, so how a valve works it actually sits on to your gas, on to your
    bottle and it’s an on and off tap. so you can have your bottle
    attached to your gun always if you close the tap which means there’s no gas leak,
    so the moment you need to use it, all you gotta do is turn your tap and you ready to
    fire so we can make it easy on you. This comes as well like we say time is very
    important assault fair situation you need to be able to act very fast without
    panicking without warning. emotion yeah I understand that these are used say like
    on the farms the guys use it on farms also you know open areas our guys use
    this a lot recently first of all guys don’t want to use they
    can is the first line of defense sadly you cannot just use your gun
    openly because there are also consequences to you you would be able to defend yourself without having the consequences of using
    A real gun. not to break a bone like these are it’s just it’s just a sting
    yes to get the message across like I have seen some YouTube videos where
    some people wanted themselves to be shot with the gas and they do it at like only
    about three meters and with no shirt on it’s my Hoy jeez and so what
    happens is they get a terrible big bloody hickey yeah it doesn’t really
    look like a hickey that constantly changes color. the pressure on these
    guns if you feel them on your bare skin it
    does but because the pressure is so high remember co2 is compressed air – it really
    does push up with a lot of pressure coming you can tear a piece of plastic
    easy to you with gas, yeah so even without without the bullet in it…. without a bullet inside of it…good for dusting around the house okay sadly I do not
    have the laser that I really would like to show you… it’s what’s used in the
    states a lot it’s the taser gun which is the only
    taser they can attack a person at 4 Meters away. it sends out to wires that hook on to you and every time you press the button in that thing sends a pulse out
    there so yeah so how it is you get the device itself and you get cartridges
    that you put inside now that cartridge shoots out 2 wires at a 4 meter distance it hooks onto you
    if you time you press the buttons the person gets zapped. In our country it’s legal because it’s not attacking it’s not killing the person who just puts a
    person down for you to have the advantage in the situation for you even move away or call the police. Now, bear spray actually do you call a bear spray well I know in the
    states that use it for bears but we call it Pepper Gel. Pepper gel is actually one of our newer things On the market. it’s much more effective
    than pepper spray. also in a windy
    situation I personally prefer the Pepper gel because it will not come back
    and hit you in the face… oh that’s the most remember something guys even if you’re
    Out on the ocean and stuff, you all have lots of wind constantly… if you spray
    that pepper spray it can’t hit you back in your face and the last thing you need
    is to spray yourself when you try to Defend yourself.. with a gel, you know
    it’s making direct contact anywhere on their face whatever it touches it’s
    gonna burn okay so it’ll stick to the person. Aim
    for the face – I suggest you aim for the face because that’s where you
    doing the damage yeah this is what the gel sticks to the person, so it’s more concentrated on the person. that’s why all guys don’t like sprays
    anymore because there’s too many people get affected in the situation of trying
    to defend yourself you cannot control Wind at the end of the day so with that wind it will come back. With the gel It will not come back at you. yeah it even says
    on the front safe to use indoors does not affect bystanders reduces wind blow
    back exactly on the pepper spray whether you’re using the paintball gun or even
    the in the canister up here that you actually pull a trigger on what would be
    an antidote to that if somebody got it in their eyes or you or I got it in our
    eyes how do we get rid of it quickly MILK. Water is a no no cuz it’s
    a base that actually sticks on to your skin so water actually makes it
    worse… it so the best thing you should actually use is milk. that’ll neutralize it yeah you know say like somebody leaving South Africa
    or it’s they want to play paintball in another country how difficult is it to
    carry a paintball gun in their check legged luggage depending
    on the customer the country you’re going to attend today for example if you go to
    Australia they don’t care what kind it is they will not allow it him because
    thier policies do not allow it there at the end of the day you’re not looking at
    our South African within South Africa there’s no issues with all guns
    whatsoever moving it you can see it’s a paintball Gun,l you push it through
    declared as a paintball gun the guys don’t have a problem with it. the
    countries it depends on the customs also the guys will not even allow it in most
    of the guys it looks so realistic for example our
    and customs the guys will never allow that in them because of how do you stick
    it is you got that Patrick that’s important
    look at the tip okay this indicates that it’s a toy or a regular paintball toy
    gun yeah it’s to show that that’s not a Real gun because the thing about airsoft
    is the look and the way it’s identical to the real one yeah something she’s
    actually sure that it is even something like this I mean this is small it it
    looks kind of like a toy in a way certainly not so intimidating like
    imitation this shoots the same ammunition same ammunition you can put a
    hopper here and dump a lot of idents any kind of ammunition you want
    exactly and the big tank comes off the back so it depends on you and your
    choice of Guns, you actually get up what I see or what you really want you
    can choose video thank you see this here does not look like a real firearm so by
    looking at this you can say it’s not a real fire okay then crossbows I mean
    this is a hundred and twenty pound bull crossbow I mean that’s powerful that’s
    really powerful when we were kids we had 45 pound and that was powerful enough
    with my target we actually stopped about 50 we got between 50 80 120 going all
    the way up to 140 so with the hundred 2150 the guys actually use it for
    hunting the rocks yeah damage it will definitely you looking at around
    plus/minus around four hundred fifty nine four pack of six now the good thing
    is as you can feel it is three point eight yeah what the top can be changed
    yes so if you want it to be a bit much area
    for example in the guys are using it for hunting etc we do use raise the head
    plates so this is that cuts right through
    anything okay and what is the cost of one arrow oh you said let me pack off
    six is fifty four hundred and fifty was about thirty dollars a chevron we’ve got

    Towing A 700HP Boat With A Super Yacht!!! (Captain’s Vlog 92)

    September 17, 2019

    Hey guys welcome back to channel, welcome
    back to the vlog. If you’re new to the channel a big warm welcome. My name’s
    Tristan Morlock, this is captain’s vlog. A lot of the viewers, a lot of you guys
    have been asking: what do we do with the chase boat? Do we put it on board? Do we
    tow it? Does the chase boat captain drive it everywhere? I’m gonna answer all
    those questions in this video but before we get started I just want to let you
    guys know that if this YouTube channel the Super Yacht Captian YouTube channel
    reaches a hundred thousand subscribers by the 14th of September 2019 we will be
    donating ten thousand euros to charity and all you need to do is click that
    subscribe button and you’ll be helping to contribute to a very good cause. Also,
    if you wanna follow us on social media we’ve got the super yacht captain
    Instagram page and Facebook Instagram superyachtcaptain1. Facebook is just
    super yacht captain so you can follow us on both those social media platforms. So,
    in order to answer your questions, it’s not possible to bring the chase boat
    onboard AWOL. We simply don’t have the space or capability to carry it onboard. We
    transport it two ways if for any journey under an hour the chase boat captain
    David will drive it himself. For anything over an hour we tend to tow it and in
    this video I’m going to show you how we tow the chase boat how we connect it
    between the deck team and the chase boat captain they’re gonna talk you through
    the process of putting a chase boat in tow so really hope you guys enjoy this
    video. That’s 200,000 views already! We are in neutral There’s a terrible light tonight and that
    is your hundred thousand views right there!
    Whoo! You like that that Slav-meister So, this morning we’re going to be going
    to towing operations and how we do it on AOL, so
    Hey Barbarac! We first of all we attach two points of
    contact kind of evens the load out between each Radio: Jason we are stopped, David, you are clear to approach and connect the tender So, you were saying like two points of
    contact… Two points of contact so even the stresses of the load out while towing. So we attach it
    that side, bring it down What we tow with is 50 to 60 meters of Dyneema
    line. Super strong, so we attach that to this black line, then that goes to the
    chase boat. So… we then pass the other end of the
    black line through this and attach it to the other side of the vessel. It’s
    never good to have line on line contact and friction but we do monitor it and
    we’ve when we see it starting to get quite worn out we replace it. The reason
    for that is if we had a big metal ring or shackle on the end there’s always the
    chance that it can if we had to slow down or something it could go straight
    into the chaseboat and we end up with a massive dent. That’s Babs reconnecting on the other side there Always in our lifejackets, safety first
    here on AWOL. What I’m doing now is I’m just coiling everything nicely so that
    when we do attach the chase boat and start picking up speed there’s no… no
    snags, no knots or anything like that try and make the operation as smooth as
    possible. Try not to rush but it’s a perfect day so there’s not much swell. Barbara: I can only
    supervise because I don’t have my life- jacket so I have to stay here and just
    see them work. Though I’m here to be sure they are safe. Give it a little kick ahead. So, we’ve got
    three points of contact coming off the chase boat and then we attach it to the
    Dyneema this big attachment. Then once we’ve done that and we’ve got control of
    the chase boat David will cover everything on the chase boats trim the
    engines right up and then turn off all batteries and then he’ll make his way
    onto AWOL and then we’ll begin towing. Ready? Tristan, Tristan, David is onboard. Can I have a
    kick ahead please? Radio: Copy Is there any safety procedures while extending
    the line? I’m just making sure that I’m trying to keep the tender as straight as possible. Make sure the line goes up nice and smoothly as
    well as making sure i don’t get my foot or any part of me in any of the bites in
    the line. It makes like a noose around you and you’ll get dragged
    into the water. Yeah, feeding it out nice and slowly and then when the tensions
    almost up I’m gonna walk up the side of the steps. Get out of the way. Then communicate with the captain. Then just ensuring you’re behind the
    tow line at all times, just in case. So when the tension gets taken up I’m not
    in any danger That’s that for towing operations! She slides all over the
    place! Hope you guys enjoy that video. It gives
    you a better idea now what we do do with the chase boat when it’s when it’s being
    towed how we tow it how we connect it. As always guys if you did like that

    Provisioning a Sailboat for 6 Months- Sailing SV Delos- Ep. 64

    September 17, 2019

    Previously on Delos! Not knowing anything about rigging the boys give Delos a new rig while at the dock. What are you guys up to? We’re writing a shopping list. A massive shopping list. For like 6 months! And we’re putting it in categories. Really? It’s that big. What categories do you have so far? We’ve got dry goods, other stuff, cleaning products, toiletries… And snacks! You gotta have snack one. Spices and sauces, that’s a very important one. Peanut butter! Hey Hey everybody! While half of the crew was changing the rig the rest of us went provisioning. We already bought heaps of stuff in Malaysia but it was now time for a final massive provisioning. Our goal was to leave Thailand with enough food to last us for 6 months. Let’s do this people! Do we have any more white flour left? Yeah. I think we have like 8 packs or something. So we could just get like 100, or another big pack of earl grey. And then like a big pack of green tea. Well how many bottles of alcohol we drink per month so we can figure out how much sugar we need. Because that’s mainly what we use sugar for. And then we have to include some baking. How many bottles of alcohol will we go through a month? 10 we think so far… If not more! I would say like 15. So if we do 10 bottles a month…. So yeah. 6 kilos. 40 KG’s of sugar for 6 months. Just for the alcohol. So we’re off to do our first provisioning run! Oh man, it’s fricking hot. We’re sweating A LOT. And we’re going to go to Makro which is like a bulk food store. Big provisioning! So we’re gonna see our cruiser car now. And because when you rent a car you can either get like a regular car or a cruiser car. And a cruiser car is WAY BETTER. No power steering, no AC. Yeah. It’s usually a piece of shit from what I’ve heard but it’s cheap. And it’s exactly what we need. It’s a nice car. It’s the upgrade. F*uck yeah look at that thing. I haven’t driven a manual in a while! Let’s do this! Ummm. So we’re at our first stop. This is Makro which like a bulk foods store. Yes! You can see the trolley’s ahead. Like they’re massive. So we’re gonna try to find heaps of stuff. This is our first stop But like 4 or 5 stops to go to. So this is the start. But we have a list. Let’s do this! So we’re gonna go and get some canned foods first. We’re gonna come back here a few times. We don’t have a lot of space in the car so we’re gonna start with that and then check out if they have any good snacks here too. Snacks!!! That’s our mission! See you in a bit! Okay. Babs and I. We’re on the dry goods. Oh shit it’s backwards No it’s not! Dry goods. Okay so we’re gonna go this way. Perfect! Ah to the left, here. This is what we need mate! Big packs of rice. So here we are at Makro in Phucket and we’re actually meant to be filming in here so we’re trying to be real hush-hush about it. So we need 30 KG’s of rice. That’s like 15 bucks. Ha ha, for 30 kilos of rice. And that’s feeding 7 people for 6 months. And we’ve got 10 of these! Tea for Brady’s Kombucha. Yeesss! This store is f**cking awesome! Yeah so we can’t pay with credit card apparently so we’re trying to find an ATM to get 32,000 baht to pay with. And yeah, let’s go! We tried to withdraw enough cash but our daily limit didn’t allow us not our day today! So you’re not allowed to film in there unfortunately. We’re been for about 3 hours now F**ck tired. And apparently or unfortunately they didn’t take card either. So we had to like scramble together all our cash. I don’t know. We got it paid and we’re outta here! Let’s get the f**ck out of here! It felt insane to buy so much food. Funny thing is though when we made our shopping list we kind of half guessed the quantity we needed for everything. But at the store we followed the list religiously. Round 1 check! Put your feet in here I think we can fit you. Hi Karin! That was a f**cking shit show mate! Yeah. She’s pointing something. What? I think our car is too low or something is falling out. Open up the door. What? Are we too low? I don’t know. Oh flat tire! F**ck! Oh my god! You’re kidding me. Mate! It’s not flat. It’s defenitely not flat. I think we just need air. Nothing is working for us today. So we just pretty much all of the heavy shit out. of the car, all the cans and stuff. And um. We’re gonna go to the gas station and get some air in the tire and then come back, put everything in and see if it’s okay. Thank you! It works I think. We rented this today. F*cking cruiser car. That’s a cruiser car! Sweet, yeah perfect. Yeah thumbs up. So now we’re gonna go. Oh thank god! So now we’re go and eat something cause we’re f**cking starving. The car is full of stuff. And it’s now night time. We are tired! So we just putting everything into the boat. And I’m sweating ’cause it’s like 8,000 degrees in here. And yeah, it’s a hot one! The next morning we spent hours trying to organize our shopping. Even though Delos has a lot of storage space this was pushing it. It was only the beginning. And we were a bit scared everything wasn’t going to fit. Especially since we bought over a thousand beers in Langkawi. Yep, that’s how we roll. Beers first, survival later. Hello there! Hi! I’m making pancakes for breakfast. So we have pancakes, Swedish style. And I got some strawberries as well. We’re just putting all the cans away. We bought like 400 cans. F**cking mission! Yeah so we also managed to get, um, to use the freezer for the restaurant so we chucked all of the rice in there today which is good so we’re gonna go back today and buy some more flour and stuff which we also need to freeze. Which is awesome, ’cause we don’t really have much space in our freezer. And why do you freeze them? Because the eggs from the bugs are already in the package. So they will hatch and then you have like instead of rice you have a full bag of black bugs. We want to avoid that happening. So many tourists! The highlight of the day going provisioning is getting in the car with AC We’re gonna get um toiletries like 150 rolls of toilet paper. 100 boxes of milk. And all the other random crap that we didn’t get last time. That was our 3rd provisioning round and we still need more. Yeah we’re stil not ready yet. So we have a lot of stuff. So now we’re just going back so the boys can help us unpack and everything. In the V-Berth we put all cereal stuff. Sugar and flour some snacks and a lot of nuts. And as you can see all cubbards were full. Brady and Josje even had to clear out some of their things to fit it all. Ready to go to the store. Um, yes, yes very ready! None of us slept good for the whole good for the whole week. It was sooo hot in the marina with no wind. And of course when we could have used the AC it stopped working. My favorite time of the day was showering at the marina restrooms ’cause it had both AC and awesome showers. It saved me that week! (Music- Summer of ’69) We tried to buy toilet paper for the whole trip, but it takes up a lot of space. We decided that we were only allowed to use 1 square per time. You gotta plan ahead! So I think we did pretty good! I mean I don’t think we need to get much else apart from So I think we did pretty good! I mean I don’t think we need to get much else apart from…. And we still need like some dried fruit and that kind of stuff. Yup. And chick peas. We were so lucky to be anchored in the marina when doing our last provisioning. Imagine this load of stuff on dinghy rides back and forth. It saved us sooo much time! By the way, here’s the complete shopping list unedited! We’re here to pick up some stuff. Okay. Yeah I have to go a lot of times though back and forth. Cause it’s like a large pack. Is he there? Yeah. Okay, would it be better if we come back tomorrow? Shall we come back tomorrow is that better for you? Morning time. Morning yep. We’ll come back tomorrow morning. Okay. Let’s go to the other place that’s where we have most of it anyway. We have some stuff in your freezer. Pasta and rice. Rice? Yes. So we just are coming to get it. 4 days ago we put it in your freezer. Oh there he is! Hi, hello! Thank you so much! Come on Karin let’s go! Come on Karin let’s go! Hey hey hey! Pick up the pace ladies! Pick it up! Pick it up! What are you doing Max? Taping. Taping what? Chips! To the wall, or under my bed. This is my bed and this is my secret stash. Nice! We made it! Man, that was a lot of hard work. You guys helped us through it though. You had been buying us beer so Brian had a surprise for the last night. Japanese Sushi all you can eat buffet with drinks! We got so excited! 7 hungry sailors and two hours to eat as much as we could. I could not believe we were done shopping. The boat was defenitely lower leaving the marina then when we had arrived. We counted that we had bought 25 trolleys of food this week. Where did we put it all? I had never bought that much food in my life. What a unique experience though. Now Max had learned yet another new part of the sailing lifestyle. And preperation and teamwork is super important. Next up on Delos! We meet a local expat that owns a mexican restaurant. We go to a Ping-Pong show. And get ready to sail to India!

    How to Clean a Sailboat : How to Prep a Sailboat for Cleaning

    September 15, 2019

    Hi, I’m Ches Rainer welcome to Expert Village.
    Today we are going to be talking about some techniques used to clean a fiberglass boat.
    In this clip we are going to talk about getting all your supplies ready to clean the boat.
    Before you start cleaning you want to make sure that you got your hoses out on the dock
    and all your cleaning supplies ready that you are going to need. That way you don’t
    need to be running back and forth on the boat because it is just going to get the boat dirty
    coming back and forth off the dock.
    If you don’t keep your boat at a slip you’re going to need to bring it from your mooring
    ball or your anchorage, where ever you’re holding it to the dock that way you have a nice fresh
    water supply to wash down the boat, we took this one here earlier.

    HOW TO MAKE – Sailboat out of bottles

    HOW TO MAKE – Sailboat out of bottles

    September 15, 2019

    Hi guys! The construction of the Ficusland continues, but in the meantime we decided to sail a bit by making a sailboat out of bottles. So, we brought the bottles to the place of filming, these are 6 liter bottles. We calculated that our entire sailboat will occupy 2 cubic meters as a whole, which is 2000 liters in volume. And now we’re starting to build our sailboat first we make such small blocks of 2 bottles and join them together using tape then we connect these blocks of 2 into blocks of 4 so, we have a ready bottom part, and we started to build the sides. Let’s check how heavy it is at the moment. can you lift? It’s quite light can you lift the whole structure? Wow! Rambo Tell us what will it be? it will be such a structure that will be attached to these bottles. I mean it’s something like, how’s that thing called which carries sails in a boat, the mast right? Yes, mast Basically it’s the stick on which our sailboat will be placed. Why do we need the wooden construction? Well, it’s because if we attach this thing to the bottles, it will simply not hold, so we need a more reliable construction and for this we make such a wooden frame. but the main part will be located at the bottom of our sailboat, so it shouldn’t be visible. so, we made this simple construction, with the help of which the canvas, which will be here later, can be rotated. To do this, we attached ropes here so that from any end of our sailboat it could be controlled. By the way, the quadrature of this canvas turned out to be 4 square meters. According to Wikipedia, there shouldn’t be more than 5 or 8 square meters per person, because if there is more, then the person simply can’t cope with it. I think we can handle it I think our sail will be enough for this sailboat and for the two of us. Well, our sail will be also from such improvised means. It will be a stretch film of blue color to make it beautiful Let’s put it guys! By the way, it’s relatively light. Yeah, light! So, we have already arrived at this amazingly wonderful place. Look how beautiful it is! Here we’ll check our sailing boat. But there is a small problem. The wind is blowing from that shore towards us. Therefore, it’s likely that won’t not be able to sail. So, we’ll attach our motor here, cross to the other side, and from there we’ll sail along the lake on our sailboat. come on, come on, come on! Well, we attached the motor, took the battery, camera and me and we’re ready to go! because the sail canvas is ready as well. yes, just check out how cool it looks! : but there’s a problem, we don’t know how to control the sail. Once we were on a yacht and this sail almost threw me overboard it was a real yacht, yeah? yes, it was a real yacht but we will try to cope with this sail, which we made ourselves. you see, the wind is blowing in this direction, like that. We need to get there first. Right? Let’s try! we are sailing. Friends we’re sailing. I want to sail at full speed. we’re sailing with a sail we are sailing against the tide and we haven’t started the motor We’re trying to keep the sail along the wind so that it does not interfere with sailing to that shore, now we are sailing with the motor on. : we planned to sail there, but the wind changed its direction, and now we are sailing in the opposite direction that Did you see? Yes against the current we are sailing against the tide and see how fast we’re moving to the shore? Yes, we’re heading to the shore. we are mooring up. Our driver Ficus can apply for the driving license. I wonder what is the driving license for ship is called. There’s a strong wind now but I want to check how the yacht will sail in such wind The sailing was incredibly cool we got a cool idea. If we get a lot of likes for this video, then we’ll make a sailboat on wheels amphibious sailboat. we will ride on the field with the help of the wind. If you like the idea, be sure to hit the thumbs up so that we know that you want to film us that video : also write in the comments what you want to see in our next video, what do you want us to build?

    What’s Your Favorite Place To Go Boating In The Hamptons?

    What’s Your Favorite Place To Go Boating In The Hamptons?

    September 14, 2019

    My favorite place to go boating in the Hamptons
    is around the Shelter Island area. There are many little nooks and crannies and harbors.
    I love Majors Harbor. I love Cockles Harbor. Just go there, drop anchor, have a picnic,
    pop a bottle of wine open and just chill and swim and relax. Another favorite thing to
    do is take the boat around to Sunset Beach which is a very popular restaurant over on
    Shelter Island, you may have heard of it. It’s fantastic. Drop anchor at Sunset Beach,
    bob around a little bit. Swim in and go in in your bathing suit with a little cover-up
    that you have held in a baggie as you swim. You can do that or you can get the dinghy
    service to take you in and have a beautiful lunch at Sunset Beach and then do a sunset
    cruise back home.

    The Maiden Voyage of a Liveaboard Sailboat Sailing to Ibiza Spain

    The Maiden Voyage of a Liveaboard Sailboat Sailing to Ibiza Spain

    September 13, 2019

    Oh no… The crew consists of three humans.
    Dylan Magaster, seven-day sailing experience, Skipper.
    Jackson Peters, two months as a deckhand, Admiral. Tara Wear, five days sailing
    from Colombia to Panama, Treasurer. The Balearic Islands resting in the western
    part of the Mediterranean. The Plan. Sail from Barcelona Spain to Mallorca and
    onward to Ibiza. The vessel yet to be purchased. You can’t make yourself
    interested in something. Interest manifests itself and grips you. That’s a
    whole different thing. You’re compelled forward by your interest. Welcome to See++ the vessel that’ll take
    us all over the Mediterranean from Greece to Spain actually from Spain to Greece, hopefully to Israel, this is Sea++. The deal was done for $10,000 and we were committed to the
    artist formerly known as See++ and all of her beauty and all of her faults. As you can see, it’s not like perfect condition. Egh it’s ugh super thick. Just in case. The engine was taken out, disassembled completely. Tiny tiny oil leak, but it runs great. She was a little bit beaten down but the necessity, potential, and the vision were there. Now, it is time for action. Organize your local landscape. Schedule your time. Start taking control of yourself. See if you can stop saying things you know to be lies. Out here killing mold. This is a process of soul-searching. Bathroom time…you have to figure out what it is. What will work for you. Miscellaneous hardware, miscellaneous
    miscellaneous, miscellaneous plugs. First time out! We got a ship coming in here. You get one shot at this gig right here. LIFE. So you have to go into the unknown and that’s that’s God’s first command, go into the unknown. Gage doesn’t work. We are going to Mallorca! Well, it’s excitement at the moment. So yeah we’ll see, it’s an overnight sail…
    our first sail! We’re off! Woo! Raise the main. Raise the main sheet. Okay! We’re sailing! Sea++ Sea++. Come in.This is Sea++ furling out the head sail. 13 to 15 knots of wind. Go ahead and enjoy! And the most important thing to learn is that we have so much to learn. We all do. And we can learn from school
    and from people and from experience and we learn from life. It’s a pretty tumultuous sea. Stop the pressings! Captain Matthias the captain of the cruise ship we were on
    said that just a little bit alcohol helps settle the stomach, allegedly. In
    the sun able to look out it it’s not too bad. Trying to adjust just the out haul so that we don’t get so much weather helm. Oops. We sailed for like four hours with a ugh not fully tensioned luff. So again I guess it’s good we got it now. There was Braddock at a big table with a
    party called Francis Klein and Mrs. Braddock’s and several people I did not know. The sea at night is unlike anything I’ve
    known. The dark immense below the vast array of stars and planetary bodies
    overhead traversing the fragile line in between. With Mars as our heading, I began the first watch. Then ease the main sheet. What do you see, Cap? Land ho! Oh, where did that come from? Ouch. Some mysterious way we lost 60
    gallons of water. It was going perfectly according to plan until I gave it too
    much forward. Can you see that? That is a little ding on the bow. *screeching* So we’re gonna get hit with a
    nice little storm tonight so that’ll be fun because it’s our first night on anchor. Make sure there’s a couple wraps around the winch. Two head sails were coming unfurled. Our anchor is holding, that would totally blow if it wasn’t, but thank the Lord it’s totally working. Sailing Vessel Swift. This is Swift, copy. We just pickled the outboard engine. Ouch. Here we go. Here goes nothing. It’s chilly. We had it locked onto the dinghy and then the ferry came by and we got hit with a giant wave
    and the halyard was still attached to the engine and so the dinghy went down
    the halyard went up the engine went over and then down. You got it? Got it. I didn’t cinch it though. Many boaters would certainly agree that one of the most character building situations in recreational boating is
    dealing with an engine that has slipped it’s mount and needs recovery from the deep also known as pickling an engine. We need to go around the island down here to Ibiza which is this island down here and there’s a little town of Ibiza. It should
    be relatively quick but we’ll see how it goes. Finally filling up with gasoline. Although it is diesel. So we’re checking the wind here so we’ll be headed right into the wind. We’re gonna
    have to motor some of it, unfortunately. Goodbye Swift! Sea God’s may you look upon us with
    grace. Big love. It would appear that we have a problem. What you cooking down
    there? *alarm sounding* The engine is all wet. Is that where the waters gone? I would guess that was a coolant leak, but that leak is no idea and the engine is like 200 degrees. Oh, was it just this? Might have just been that popped off. That might be the culprit but not positive. It is quite rocky down here. Oh boy, oh Jesus. You feeling sick? Not yet… I think it’s fine. Engine’s spewing coolant all over the place and that changes all of our plans. Got issues. People call it Murphy’s Law anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Don’t necessarily believe
    in Murphy’s Law but maybe right now I am! Why am I using a flashlight? We’ve got…*turns lights on, laughter* That is not that funny but man… We’re still having motor problems. 17:30
    yesterday we left now it’s 14:35 and we’re back at the place we anchored last
    night. It’s literally an hour walk from where we anchored two nights ago. We’re walking. I’ve almost got this thermostat off. Engine block is in the way. This here is a thermostat. The way you test this is you put it in a container of water and boil it. It would
    appear that our thermostat is functioning. I don’t know what the issue
    is now. The wind looks good today and it should carry us the full way from a beam
    reach to a broad reach. You can see the wind right there you can see wind behind us
    but we’re in another calm. Reading both pages and we got two jibe preventers. Stay on this point of sail and at this bearing for another six point six nautical miles. In order to get any oil out of a diesel
    marine engine you have to siphon it out. It’s working! It’s totally working.
