NYC has one of the lowest new infection rates at the moment because they got hit hard, and people are aware and mask wearing. 

Smarter to go there than Carolinas, Maryland or Virginia. 

Huh? Maryland has things well in hand at the moment. We are watching for a slight spike after some stupidity in the bars at Ocean City but we only have 149 people in the ICU and 7 deaths yesterday.  I hardly ever see anyone without a mask...though I'm not out in public much.

The case load up, when combined with the reality that in the US, we don't have plans for comprehensive testing and contact tracing? The nearly 800 new cases reported is the tip of the iceberg.

the Wildings are a nice couple - a slightly freaky  englishman and his slightly unfocussed chinese wife. They bought a boat and set off for the med  - and then half way down the irish sea  found that Mrs Wilding gets very seasick so they decided to go down to the med via the french canals

 

but the weed in the canals is horrendous.....

 

now watch on

They must be on a very remote canal.  There wasn't one other boat.

I've watched a few canal boat vlogs just to see if a vaca on one would be tolerable. The canal boats have a lid over the props so you can easily clear the weed as needed. Their props are also only just below the surface, since speed limits in the ditches are so slow.

Their problems have more to do with the raw water intake than the prop.

I have a simple question for the collective.  Which of the Youtubers have you tired off and who do you still watch?

I have been watching a number of these for the last 4 years and recently went through the subscription list and dropped quite a few.  Some are no longer making videos so they dropped off the list easily and some have taken a different journey that I am interested in.  I have also added a few who may not be new but are new to me.

Dropped - Ruby Rose, Wynns, Doodles, Chasing Stars, Chase the story, Sailing L'atitude, Skeleton Crew, Tarka, And a few more I dont remember 

Added - See the Little Things, Millennial Falcon, maybe one or two others.

 

There are still a bunch I watch with regularity like delos and vagabond and Ran, but the baby thing is turning me off.  I really just want to watch sailboats and bikinis not kids.  Hey its the truth.  Who are your go too youtubers these days?  I'm hoping to find something good.

Man, it's summer.  There are more things to do outside than the locked-down YouTubers have going on.  Doesn't get dark enough to watch TV until almost 2200 anyway.  Haven't turned it on in a couple of weeks.

most real people go thru phases and transition in life - there’s prob an infinite number of ppl buying boats knowing less than the ppl they’re trying to replace doing the same shit over and over. Shrug

sounds like real people going thru personal growth and y’all use it for escape.

Never liked Delos reminds me of a frat house bunch trying far too hard to be 'cool' while pissing off everyone else with their antics, can't stand the vagabonds but I'd have to agree about RAN. Nice couple but having raised 3 kids and now with a grandchild, I really don't give a flying fuck about other peoples' little kids on boats. Complete lack of interest.

Free Range Sailing is good. I've met them, nice people IRL as well.

I used to watch these YouTube shows only in the winter. But as of now I am avoiding reading the news in the mornings, and many days I watch these with my coffee. Then I go out sailing or do other stuff. It's an escape from our current reality that is better for my attitude through the day.

Lately I like Patrick Laine and Sam Holmes and a few others. Dylan. Those Irish dudes. People out there actually sailing with minimal drama and minimal music.

I no longer watch Delos, Zatara, La Vag, and most of the others. I have no patience for manufactured trashy drama or bikini-click-strategy. If I wanted to look at babes in bikinis I could find much better than most of these people elsewhere. I also don't much care to watch the ones with enormo catamarans. I also don't want to watch somebody else endlessly scrape and sand a boat or do wiring projects. And +1 to I don't need to watch shows about babies and pets. 

Delos was the best when they were sailing the Indian Ocean to La Reunion, Madagascar, Mauritius etc. The quality of their videos was absolutely through the roof, and I loved those videos, and even with the tedious west coast hipster party vibe they seemed like nice people. Now the videos are kind of boring and no I don't want to pay your bills or buy a damn shirt.

Can't say there are any I follow, per se.  I watch whatever looks like I might learn something from.  And then I tend to binge-watch some of their back-catalog until I get tired of them.  Sailing Frenchman is probably the one I've watched the greatest percentage of.  Less so since he got into big-boat racing, but he seems to have a new mini, so I'll probably start checking in again.

And +1 to the vikings.  Cold place, no bikinis.  But fun to get some idea how you actually sail a longship.

I'm mostly watching Sailing Frenchman, especially since he got into racing. His latest vids are truly appart from the sailing butt naked bunch.

Eric "the viking" Aanderaa. He is a bit  of a drama star.. but his vids are great and different. He puts quite some work in them, I like their style.

The occasional Sailing Uma. The only glamour couple I like. Their boat is a beloved, well maintained piece of work and they do not shy away from sharing practical experiences and tips.

Funny, I preferred the Sailing Frenchman before he got all corporate and racy.  His self-reliance, simple life and the incredible overhaul of his little boat were inspiring.

Agreed, this was a nice period as well, but not all that different from other cruising channels. The fact that he did this on his small, fully refurbished Ecume de mer was indeed really cool. But what he does now is nicely uncommon, and some of those vids are incredible. I enjoy the insights he gives in his new content.

Erik certainly shows the power of presentation (keep saying no drama and no bullshit- and ppl will believe it), aggressive color grading, and unsteady cam work can turn a routine north sea passage into the southern ocean.

I really like watching those vids. Every time I do it reinforces the wisdom of my decision to build a steel boat. They've spent far more time with 4X the person-hours getting to where they are now and they haven't even finished the hull yet. OK there's a style & elegance about those wooden boats.

Same with Salt & Tar. Lotta work on a wooden boat. In their case made worse by choosing the - IMO - most ugly hull George Buehler ever drew. Good thing Ruth is so scenic.

Of course then there's SV Seeker and Rusty Junk on the other hand...

A couple of mad Ozzies, what can you say. As the owner of a plywood boat I can commiserate.

That said butt joining ply on frames and stringers with glass each side is common practice in the epoxy era. As strong as the original if done right. Scarfing the ply is more important on the topsides (hull) where a fair finish is desirable. I didn't see any butt joins with no backing.

Thing is about these videos is I can appreciate a can do, lets do this story that is mostly honest but detest the look at us cool people sailing on your dime types.

I have met people all over the world sailing pieces of shit places while people like us condemn their efforts on our phones.

In this latest episode, Dylan reminds us of Scotland's law that allows folks to visit even privately owned beaches.

I am enamored of this law but I fear that it would be a total failure in the U.S.  This is a law for responsible, respectful people.  In the US, it would result in the total and unreasonable abuse of private property by hoards of inconsiderate boaters. Beaches would be strewn with refuse from party goers each and every weekend. I think one reason that it works so well in Scotland is because their population density is so much lower as well as having a different cultural mindset.

I really enjoyed this episode. I'm sure Dylan has already caught a ton of flak for his historical perspective given in the video. ;)

Y’all may be pleasantly surprised re why certain cultures and legal traditions have a sense of communal access rights - while others have developed an entire legal system that embraces land-power-exclude (looks snidely at the English and the common law cousins).

I spent a year or so In Scotland and made good use of that law, visiting all sorts of remote places, from the nrothern end of the Shetland Islands to the southern reaches of New Galloway... staying in a wee tent or in a bothy (Mountain Bothys are  a marvellous institution). Sadly, almost everywhere I went, I ended up carrying out other people's trash. Its so sad that people don't realise how lucky they are, and are so thoughtless as to their impact.

Sadly, almost everywhere I went, I ended up carrying out other people's trash. Its so sad that people don't realise how lucky they are, and are so thoughtless as to their impact.

this is not my experience. I have not come across discarded rubbish apart from fisherman's crud along the strandline

I was more thinking about the trash left behind in almost every bothy I visited. The shorelines did have the usual collection of trash (even in the northern Shetland Islands) but that looked mostly as though it had floated in rather than been deliberately left. In bothy's though, even relatively remote ones, there was almost invariably garbage left behind that folk had carried in full but were too fucking lazy to carry out empty....

aha

now I understand.  I confess as a sailor I have never slept in a bothy - but been on lots of long walks inland and not been aware of litter along the paths or frequent camping spots.

The fisherman's crud was excessive though - mostly detritus from crab pots and trawls

Excellent clip there Dylan as per usual and the cameo by the Westerly was duly noted.  Not only that but it was the first time I even heard of Moidart.  I have heard of Knoydart which somewhere in that area.

In the Chesapeake Bay, there is an island called Dobbins' Island.  It was always privately owned as far as I know, but uninhabited. Every summer it was the sight of the "Bumper Bash" which is an enormous powerboat party.  Condoms, beer cans and general party detritus littered the beach every year.

Recently, the island was sold to another owner who built a home upon it without the necessary permits.  This guy killed off the Bumper Bash, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but he's been in litigation for years for being a rich twat who thinks that environmental regulations don't apply to him.

There's freedom and then there's freedumb. <_<

And now for something completely different, here is a glimpse of Dylan put together by some poor bugger with only 8 Youtube subscribers.

Anyone seen these two:

When trailer-trash go sailing...

 

So WTF does sitting down below on your boat and going on stream of consciousness rap about how tough your situation is have to do with sailing and cruising?  Too much talking on most of these vids now and not enough sailing, scantily clad virgins I say!

I think that the combination of a youtube algorithm that rewards weekly, bi-weekly or even daily posts in combination with the patreon check which rewards a post whatever the content  has a debillitating impact on quality and forces the sailing film makers to fall back on bikinis, camera yak, cooking, maintenance or babies

In my opinion there are very few people who have the skills or a sufficiently interesting sailing life to post a good sailing film every week for 52 weeks of the year . LaVag is a bit like a cute baby log filmed in a modern apartment, Delos and the Delos Spin-off have lost focus over babies. Ditto Ran and even the aussie  bloke with the mongolian bikini show have gone off piste

Sam Holmes has made some good sailing films - one has had over 2.8 million hits - and without resorting to tits or a tit based thumbnail

 

 

 

however, his last one dropped into my youtube feed and that film was shot in a potentially interesting place but at least 60 per cent was fairly vacuous camera yak where he was hiding down below talking to the camera as he has yet to invest in a wind proof microphone.

we also have at least three couples either going up or down the french canals in boats not designed for canals while complaining out weeds/heat/lock operation procedures.

Benches. Benches In the middle of nowhere, are what Bow and I remember about hiking in Scotland. You round some remote corner or crest some forlorn ridge, and there’s a bench for you to sit, rest, relax, and enjoy Scotland.
