      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

Thanks Dylan. It sure is a tricky business. I'm sorry to hear you have sold the old girl. I hope you get back on the horse.

You comment about the canasters bumping into each other chasing WiFi is interesting. Many would not even be there if it wasn't for GPS and many with literally non existent seamanship skills are lucky to be still afloat. 

Maybe we might all have to visit our favourite far away places before these fuckers take over those remote places too courtesy of Project Loon. 

A very apt name they have given it with that in mind.

https://x.company/loon/

The original cost of this project will probably balloon out. It is blue sky thinking at best. It could all just be hot air.

 

 

Thank you, thank you, I will be here all week...

Girl from a hot place goes sailing with useless white guy. She actually has a fair clue but needs to do the La Vag 'can upgrade' if she wants to crack the big time.

I sold the boat in  Feb and have not been to scotland since. I have ten more films to post this winter. Each one will be 45 minutes long.

Please, please watch them on a big telly rather than a laptop or a bloody smartphone.

 

Dylan, I've  got an idea.

These Vloggers have got it all wrong, I can only watch the same boat and tits for so long, and their life isn't that fascinating, We can do better....

We create a Sailing Anarchists boat pool. You hump your kitbag round the planet taking each boat out sailing and create a video extolling the virtues of each locale and boat.

Create a Patreon account and use the funds to hire a local hooker to accompany you for the obligatory tits and arse to drive the hits up to Delos and LaVag level. You get the best of both worlds, Dylan's voiceover of the African swallow taking to flight with a range of Kristy Hinze look-alikes half naked at the helm peering into the distance with a Rimas thousand yard stare

There are spin off benefits too. We could assemble the best of the best and create a MSG style calendar, but with a scratch n sniff.

The only thing, keep the skippers off the boat. A scratch n sniff featuring a JS, LB or BJ might appeal to us yachtie types, but I dunno about the general populace.

Worse than raining Jack,

I'm waiting to pick up my darling wife and three of her friends from a Sunday arvo champagne shindig.

You know when you're the only sober one trapped in a car for an hour with a bunch of women legless on bubbles? They appear to have learnt Yiddish in the last 4 hours. 

Hellish I say.

These people seem to just want to open up a window for everyone to look in at their world, wether it be renovating their condo, their aquarium business etc. Their mistake was they started a sailing channel but have no intention of sailing anywhere significant for 3/4 years?? WTF. If your not going to produce regular sailing content then it is a no brainer continuing to beg via Patreon would end up in tears. Wish some of the other shit content beggars would follow their lead.

Yes Jack - such a pity that Youtube doesn't have an ignore function so you don't have to keep searching for and watching their vids. I on the other hand love watching dick-wits attention whoring on youtube. Makes me feel even more superior than I normally do.

If your worried the seas are being overrun by young pretty things carrying cameras, drones and ice cubes to keep their tits from melting.. maybe you don't have to be. If you check out the audience there a lot of grey hairs in attendance.

BTW this is shot in Grenada and the CG are there as a neighbourhood watch thing on account it is down south and crime is unfortunately a problem.

After 23 pages, these vlogs are all starting to blur together.

Did we discuss "Sailing Kittiwake?"

I spent hours sewing up a new wheel cover last night and needed something to pass the time so I dove down the Youtube rabbit hole.

It's nothing to get really excited about but I do appreciate the attitude of these two young people. Production-wise, they make all the classic video mistakes that Dylan points out, but they put a lot of work into their little boat and they spoke openly of realizing the consequences that their actions may have on the people around them. They seem safety conscious and concerned with good seamanship.

The girl even gives a bit of the history of some of the places they visit, similar to the way Dylan does.

we live in a golden age of communications

it is wonderful to see these voyages brought to our screens while we do the domestic stuff

The experience for them, and for us as viewers, becomes slightly samey. 

I also admire how easy these people are in front of the camera and how much effort they put into making the films.

Two things this latest upload from Delos will produce. First intense speculation by the Delomites about their heros doing a boat trade up to a 55' and secondly all the other Vlogsters will now be frantically rattling their Patreon tins (and cans) so they can go out and buy a 360 degree vid setup so we go dizzy and blind. Then again maybe a 360 cam might inadvertantly reveal Brows cans.

It doesn't fuckin stop....soon one of the Canasters will be wanting to sail up Everest in the nude.

They have had the 360 camera for a while now, but don't seem to have found many uses for it.  

The advertising blitz for these gadgets also seems to have died down.  Aside from distortion and (so far) clumsy viewing solutions, they seem problematic.  How do you tell a story if you don't control the POV?  But I suppose that once we are all walking around with VR headsets, they will become de regueur.

You have nailed it toddster - it is hard to tell a story with those cameras.

I want my films to feel authored - the old "this is a story....now watch what happens next. I want to decide what you look at and for how long because that is what sets the pace and tone of the video. There is also the problem of sound... where does that come from? Hence the music smeared over everything.

For a while I thought that 3D was getting some traction.... that seems to have died as well. I am currently struggling with 4K - man in hoovers up the processing power, hard drive space and bandwidth.

I have a 45 minute film rendering - it says that it will take about 36 hours to fit that 4K film into a 7 gig file. No idea how they cope on board with all that data.

I am full of admiration for all of them.

Well, the hunters *might*, but professional fishermen have been collectively responsible for the effective economic extinction and in far too many cases, practical extinction of every fishery, everywhere. Followed by begging for restrictions on entry, closed fisheries, selling the licences they got for nothing and leaving the next lot of fishermen to flog the fishery even harder because now they have to pay for the capital cost of the licence in addition to making a living and replacing/maintaining capital plant & equipment. All this while 'harvesting' what was a common resource.

I have zero sympathy for them.

I have no idea what the duck population in rural England is like but in many places around the world the shooting season is regarded as essential to cull numbers to support rural production. The amount of grain ducks can hoover up needs to be seen to be believed and they can make life hell for farmers if numbers get out of hand. In fact a bounty system paid by government/local authorities during some seasons of high population numbers is not unheard of in some places.

Cheer cheer chin chin.  The make or break on a food farm, as in  a farm that has been in the family for SEVEN generations, while Napolean was getting his ass kicked in Russia, some dumb fuck in the New World was beating his ass to death trying  to clear land on the off chance shit he could grow might sell....

And if he was lucky, he might plug a duck.

Agree that it is no good for telling a story but I quite like it when people show their boat sailing like this as you can spy on stuff that generally doesn't appear. Mainsail and mizzen leeches were a bit loose and flapping there....

If you love numbers have a play with around with this. The projected earnings of the big UTuber channels would scare sheep. Indians (as in from India not Sitting Bull) obviously can't get enough of string sounds combined with clanking and howling stuff. Toy Reviews, Wrestling, Latin American music and Kattie Perry are always fighting it out in some stats.

The interesting thing about UTube is once it has logged your views it then starts stalking you big time with viewing suggestions.

This one was pretty weird when the boys got hold of a section of floating dock and anchored it over the reef in Bali.

The Deltones new season starts (bearing in mind this is April in real time) and with a passage plan and a crew list that would seem to indicate they are keen to knock the Vagamite Coastal Canasters off their #1 Tuber perch. Grab the popcorn and let's see.

it does seem to be that they are both taking guests on board.

The Deltones have been taking guests for close to a year now I think, the Vagamite offer only just recently. As a Patreon add on bonus (where they audition for the spots) that may well explain the extra PAT$ going Delos's way. 

Anyone know if these people pay (other than getting from and back home) and if so how much????

I assumed they signed up for the adventure in return for being filmed - but maybe that is naive  of me. If they are paying then that runs into insurance issues and boat coding. 

One girl was told that she could not update her face-book status until the film of her leaving had gone out.

I think that now they choose vivacous  patreons - hopefully with a large face-book groups. Follow the story were after people with large youtube followings.

I wonder what it is like sharing  50 footer with a boss who really wants you to leave at the next stop and is currently arranging your replacement.

These films are soap operas on water... so what is happening behind the scenes is anyone's guess.

I seem to recall an episode where they had worked out the cruising budget in terms of dollars per person per boat month and everyone was required to pony up that amount.  But their finances may have changed significantly since then.  

Also, there are accumulated a year's worth of dreadful, long, self-absorbed blog posts on the Delos web site, from one of the current "new" girls.  I skimmed a few of them and IIRC there is some agonizing about whether she will "make the cut" for the next leg.  I didn't/couldn't read any of them in detail.  

I sort of had the impression that these people come on board for a pre-defined fixed term, unlike the departing semi-permanent GF you mention from years past. 

Speaking of personnel changes, I find it a little odd that, even when they tell stories about "the early days," there is never, ever any mention of the First Wife.  Or the cat, for that matter.  All of the laundry is not aired. For which, I suppose, we should be thankful.

Tody I get the impression he is a pretty cool and considerate guy and just being respectful. She has moved on, got married, children etc no doubt but I suspect still friends. Pretty common for relationships to go south after a pond crossing,  people get sick of each other and or one of them of the lifestyle. The current GF also coincidently appeared at this time so I'm sure she doesn't want to see a rerun of it for perpertuity. Remember also they were not prolific filmers back then and there are large slabs missing from that period NZ to Aust. 

I'm quite amazed how relaxed some of these people are at having the outside world continually peering into their day to day life. I couldn't cop that.

They aren't "paying guests" in the commercial sense. They are "sharing costs" which in the US (US flagged boat) is o.k. as a non commercial vessel. So it's still a yacht, not a passenger vessel. Insurers won't care how many crew you have aboard (within reason).

US Code of Federal Regulations

SEC. 506. PASSENGER FOR HIRE.

"(21a) 'passenger for hire' means a passenger for whom consideration is contributed as a condition of carriage on the vessel, whether directly or indirectly flowing to the owner, charterer, operator, agent, or any other person having an interest in the vessel.."

DESCRIPTION - The determination of what constitutes the carriage of a "passenger for hire" must be made on a case by case basis. This determination is dependent upon the actual operation of a vessel and the flow of consideration as determined by the facts of each case. In general, there needs to be some form of tangible consideration or promise of performance being passed for a "passenger for hire" situation to exist.

SEC. 507. CONSIDERATION.

"(5a) 'consideration' means an economic benefit, inducement, right, or profit including pecuniary payment accruing to an individual, person, or entity, but not including a voluntary sharing of the actual expenses of the voyage, by monetary contribution or donation of fuel, food, beverage, or other supplies." Additionally, employees or business clients that have not contributed for their carriage, and are carried for morale or entertainment purposes, are not considered as an exchange of consideration.

 

The UK is similar. See here:  https://www.crewseekers.net/how-much-should-crew-contribute/

Thanks Z

that clears that up.

I must say I admire the Delos man's willingness to get involved in paperwork.  There are lots of bits of film with them signing into and out of countries, getting jabs etc.  With any luck I will have finished with scotland by the time they are independent.

Since I stopped racing I have only ever been asked for paperwork just the once - that was a glance at my third party insurance for the boat as I went through the sea lock half way up the River Nene.

The lock keeper apologised for asking for it.

Maybe if I had shaved that  morning and he would not have asked for it

The UK is similar. See here:  https://www.crewseekers.net/how-much-should-crew-contribute/

 

 

 

 
 

Yeah but when was the last time they made port in their country of origin. I think anything goes so long as you aren't in highly regulated country & keep off the radar. 

Who is the Ex Jack? Delos or LaVag

They aren't "paying guests" in the commercial sense. They are "sharing costs" which in the US (US flagged boat) is o.k. as a non commercial vessel....

Zonk that regulatory mumbo jumbo is worth bat shit in 3rd world...in fact bat shit is worth more. I have run commercial charters with the only local requirement being that I employed a local on board full time.

That was pretty successful in one joint so they then wanted me to join what we would call the local chamber of commerce.

Please explain

Whom were you referring to when you mentioned one of them had an ex wife & previous catamaran?

In some ways they are the ultimate reality/soap opera.  The on-board relationships are sometimes more interesting than the places.

La Vag have their massive cat but I fear that they may have signed a pact with the devil. The pressure is really on them. Boats can be high pressure places to live and run relationships. They are now living and working in a pressure cooker but with extra guests. My guess is they are working harder than they ever have.

Delos seems more paced

If you go back to the beginning of the Delos blogs, it starts with cruising the PNW, en route to their wedding, with a furry cat on board. 

Apparently Brady later assumed the role of the cat.

That thing is only a baby, we have frill-necked lizards bigger than that. Why doesn't she tackle a real reptile.

Dylan this place looks as though it could have a nice pub or two overlooking the river. Not too crazy about that grey ole sky though. I see in 4k so you appealing to the widescreen tele people.

Sounds like you have had a bad experience picking it up in the shower at some point.

I have a fishing guide friend who goes "Live" on Facebook pretty much every morning as he's blasting across the harbor. Allows me to look and see how much wind and chop there really is and decide whether it's a sailboat day or a powerboat day.

Your harbour doesn't have a live webcam?  Hell it isn't that hard or expensive to run, my club runs three, hell even the volunteer Coastie auxillary station runs one.

Cost to run only becomes an issue because of vandalism.

The interesting thing about UTube is once it has logged your views it then starts stalking you big time with viewing suggestions.

This one was pretty weird when the boys got hold of a section of floating dock and anchored it over the reef in Bali.

PS. Anyone know how I can stop it sending me vids of Ukrainian Mail Order Brides?

  That has to be the most brilliant solution to make a "meh" swell entertaining.

  It all went to shit as soon as a real break started...but hey, they were nagverting for the dock company and I'm sure they'll use the hours of footage to more than pay for a few Euro trash surfers a trip.

 

  I'm not a surfing guy, but I became mesmerized by that big wave doc.  That one is my 2nd fav surfing vid.

The Deltones new season starts (bearing in mind this is April in real time) and with a passage plan and a crew list that would seem to indicate they are keen to knock the Vagamite Coastal Canasters off their #1 Tuber perch. Grab the popcorn and let's see.

Yeah WOW mate. Didn't know that. Got that new look. Really unhappy with myself. Look - plenty of ex's in that category. Mind you she's lasted miles longer on a boat than my ex's so power to her. Branched off from her man 24/7?

  Actually rumour has it he dumped her, drug use.

Thanks Z

that clears that up.

I must say I admire the Delos man's willingness to get involved in paperwork.  There are lots of bits of film with them signing into and out of countries, getting jabs etc.  With any luck I will have finished with scotland by the time they are independent.

Since I stopped racing I have only ever been asked for paperwork just the once - that was a glance at my third party insurance for the boat as I went through the sea lock half way up the River Nene.

The lock keeper apologised for asking for it.

Maybe if I had shaved that  morning and he would not have asked for it

Says the man from England.  The land that invented paperwork.

Next time you're trolling kids bouncing between islands, notice their mood changes between landing on a French island and landing on a former English island.
