MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra)?  How about an OGIL (Old Guy In Lycra)?

I've been trying to decide on an outfit for my next triathlon.  Perhaps the members of this forum might have an opinion.

I met a former MAMIL on the hard the other day- he was launching his dinghy.. He told me that he had given up his road bike after a  terriblle accident involving a  driver taking an unexpected left turn.  He cursed the driver roundly. I asked the biker how fast the driver was going - about ten miles an hour he said. How fast were youi going - about 25 miles an hour was his answer.

He said he misses the speed and the £4,000 bike

Dylan

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamil

 

Of all the things that I have done that could be considered thrilling, sharing the road with automobiles on a bicycle brought me more unexpected sphincter tightening moments (as opposed to a "code brown" moment).   I have been punted four times by cars, once by one driven by a distracted mother, and all the rest were pensioners who were trying to back road to the stores without getting on a main thoroughfare.   Those three rolled through stop signs without looking.   Been very lucky to not have more than spectacularly colorful large bruises, embedded asphalt aggregate in the hide and bikes turned into misshapen metallic components.

I still ride and expect to be bank shot again in the future, but do my best to anticipate the lack of awareness of others.

Sailing and riding a bike have at least one thing in common.  They both bring a joy of life that allows one to just smile when confronted by @$$holes.

Both  force you to accept that sometimes you are the asshole

as cyclists and sailors there are times when we really stuff it up

sometimes with witnesses and sometimes the fek ups are more private

In addition:

both cycling ans aailing involve a degree of unjustifiable expenditure that extends to capital equipment plus gadgets and clothing

both give pleasure while both engaged in the activity and thinking about it.

I also know that I have achieved a sense of contentment when I am riding the bike and thinking about the boat but , strangely enough I seldom think about the bike while on the boat

I always take my folder with me when sailing to new places... a folding bike takes up a lot of real estate on a 22 footer - but well worth having aboard. It allows  yo;u to explore way beyond the first mile of the pontoon

I've pretty much stopped watching Barry. He spends far too much time just rambling on at the camera. Can't imagine enough exciting would be happening on that passage to make entertaining video regardless.

Well you got that one right.  Barry rambles on a bit and bugger all happens.  He is near the Galapagos which is often a windless area.  It will be likely to take 6 weeks to reach Marquesas.

Hmmm. I didn't bother watching that episode - got no interest in other peoples' seasickness quite frankly. I've had to stand a lot of watches the first week at sea for people who took a bit to get their sea legs to find it noteworthy.

Wonder what it'll do to their cruising plans though. I can't think that a newborn aboard a short-handed boat would be appealing as a lifestyle choice. Time to head home to Sweden perhaps....

Whatever they decide, good on them. Nice people and excellent vids.

Dylan can I ask what your opinion is regarding filming and posting the minutiae of ones life.

Crikey my partner and I sail for quite the reverse focus and our yacht is a adventure machine that we would find great difficulty sharing those experiences with those that choose to sit on the couch and live vicariously .

I made them for the most craven of reasons

as a retired unsuccessful and unpensioned journalist I made the films and sold the DVds  to earn enough money to sail a bigger yacht - 26 feet - and to be able to sail in Scotland - 500 miles from home

when the DVDs died the  revenue stream went bellyup so I sold the 26 footer and  back to the trailer sailer  and did what most sailors do which is tp schlep  up and down the same few  rivers - I seldom take the camera with me anymore.

  I stopped making films

As for being open - I regard it as  little different from being a travel reporter - in those days my job was to go somewhere and tell you what I thought about it. Two books, countless radio progs and TV reports over the years

- so youtube was just another medium - but one where I made films for google who never pay insted of the BBC or book publishers who were decent enough to pay me for my time.

The good news is that youtube is now flooded with excellent sailing films - while many are about vauous good looking people sailing in dull places some have more to offer and expressions of delight many are excellent

I am still hoping that one day I will get to feed a swimming pig

My youtube space has just one film on it now

as a last chance saloon I am slowly utting all the films behind a paywall - at $1 a pop

It is unlikely to get me baack to scotland but it gives me some warm feelings that google is now longer hoovering up all my work

I think it's a shame because she's highly skilled.

She sails alone, fixes her stuff, climbs the rig without harness or halyard. She has an interesting choice of boat. Her background story is also interesting.  She has a lot more going for her than the typical "We're from Kansas and decided to chuck it all and buy a boat"  clueless couple.

She's wasting all that talent by cruising the same old grounds, filling the video with "vacuous yakking" and titillating thumbnails.

Even after all his miles he is a crap sailor. no wonder it took him twice as long to get across. He has everything reefed in 7 knots of wind
and complains about making  2 knots on that shitter. almost nothing works.  Surprised hes survived  

 Lots of rehearsed drama - every rain shower becomes a white squall, a 5 mile crossing with a fishing boat is ' I was almost rundown last night'

Actually I like that one about Martinique.  Have to put that destination on my dream list.

Favorite oldie film as a young adult was "To Have and Have Not," set in Vichy-French Martinique.  Bogey cast as the deep sea fishing captain, Walter Brennan as his first mate...Hoagy Carmichael at the piano in a smoky bar...a very young Lauren Bacall.  Shit, I want to go back and watch that movie again soon.

You all might like The Geordie, The Witch and The Wench.  

Wonder how our resident media/journalist expert, Dylan :-) will categorize this sailing genre.  Self-conscious/self-filming Youtubers, for sure; but not “sexy” in the mainstream way - rather more down-to-earth, for sure; and real sailors (and on an old wooden boat, to boot).  I’m not really a vid or TV watcher (and hardly even movies), but something about these two makes me want to watch The Geordie, The Witch and The Wench...

Episode “Belaying Pins: The Dirty Dozen”.  Enough said! :-)

 

 

Episode “Mr. Postman” has the requisite Youtube sailing video blonde female shots - but is different.  And they always have good/interesting soundtrack music.

Nice. I appreciated the belaying pin exercise as I had to make 20 of them for my boat (a few spares, needed 16). I used my big metal lathe and a template to get the handles all the same, and glued in lengths of stainless tubing for the pin part. 

Might have to watch more of these guys.

I dunno, maybe it's a cultural thing and I'm wrong to look at it through a Puritanical, U.S. lens.

Or, maybe it's exactly what it looks like- a creepy older guy lured a bimbo from another country over to cruise on his boat with the promise of a lot of cash and publicity exposure.

It turns out, he scoops these chicks from a site called:  crewbay (https://www.crewbay.com/).  He puts an ad on there, and answers ads on there and these girls hook up with him through that site.  They are looking for free rides on a sailboat going places, and he is offering that experience for them.  He pays for the food and and other expenses and they help sail the boat.   lol.  And he gets eye candy for his youtube channel.  I dont think he is getting any sexy sexy time with these chicks.  They are all about 20 years younger than him.

That all makes sense. But that looks like at least partly a hookup site to me.  "Patricia from Poland, warm and open, etc etc."  I'm all for videos with healthy, happy chicks in the scenes as clickbait, but don't want to support anything that is based on exploitation.

There was the time that they were demonstrating how they were circumventing a customs seal.  But then, AFAIK, all their videos are months in the past.  Maybe it depends on whether you intend to ever return to that place.  Keep moving forward...

I'm sure the whole "Hold My Beer" genre contains evidence of all sorts of malfeasance that no cop on earth is bored enough to comb through.

they decide to build a 600 litre home built gas tank on a boat.....

needed to power the "big ass ride" to get to the diving grounds and the compressor needed to fill all the dive tanks

to build the tank  they planned to start grinding stuff on a dock.....

they were told to  go off and grind elsewhere

so they went away, did some grinding, then came back and started grinding again

- at night in a marina

If I was the marina owner....I am not sure I would welcome them

- while the money from a 70 footer would be nice....dealing with the noise and complaints and rust spots might make it not worth the candle.

These people are going to be noisy neighbours wherever they wash up

I assume that they are also applying a fair amount of pressure on the bogs and showers.

while the film is more interesting than Mads and his never ending, astonishingly anal, fettle....

it is less interesting and worthy than Leo and his never endlng hardwood chomping re-build

I am not sure "Drenched" is going to make money.

It is a bit like watching big brother but first having to watch a badly filmed series about the set being built...

- while the money from a 70 footer would be nice....dealing with the noise and complaints and rust spots might make it not worth the candle.

These people are going to be noisy neighbours wherever they wash up

I assume that they are also applying a fair amount of pressure on the bogs and showers.

while the film is more interesting than Mads and his never ending, astonishingly anal, fettle....

it is less interesting and worthy than Leo and his never endlng hardwood chomping re-build

I am not sure "Drenched" is going to make money.

It is a bit like watching big brother but first having to watch a badly filmed series about the set being built...

The opening 5 second visual staccato,  was enough to turn that OFF. Next,... :)

they decide to build a 600 litre home built gas tank on a boat.....

needed to power the "big ass ride" to get to the diving grounds and the compressor needed to fill all the dive tanks

to build the tank  they planned to start grinding stuff on a dock.....

they were told to  go off and grind elsewhere

so they went away, did some grinding, then came back and started grinding again

If I was the marina owner I'd toss them out permanently and ban them for life. Cutting & grinding steel around plastic or timber boats with expensive paint jobs is a very unfriendly and inconsiderate thing to do - the metal particles travel quite a way on the wind and the next time it rains or just gets damp, you have lovely orange speckles all over your paintwork. And I *own* a steel boat. Got a few of those stains on my paintwork, but at least I know who to blame for it.

Also the way they're using angle grinders without safety guards and in bare feet no less - they're a collection of accidents waiting to happen. I nearly cut a tendon on my hand with one of those thin cutoff discs, and the guard was on, and I was wearing gloves.

As for building your own petrol tank, good luck with that idea. Hope they've got really, really good gas sniffers fitted, plus a plan to safely empty that tank in the event of a leak. And that they actually had the thing designed by a competent person.

But, judging from the half I watched before the cringe factor overcame me - I doubt it.

One thing I can say for sure - I wouldn't want them *anywhere* near me. Especially if they have that tank filled......
