In these islands on the starboard side of the pond, we enjoyed beer for many centuries before the invention of refrigeration.

I agree that lager and other such muck is best refrigerated, but proper ales and bitters and stouts are designed to be drunk at room temperature.

^^^ this is location-depndent. room-temperature in the british summer is something quite different from room-temperature in brazillian summer... just sayin'

I'm of the opinion there's a direct correlation between the world flooded with cheap money, the steep increase in 'modern art' sales, and much stricter US Fed tax compliance laws.

OK I actually watched that and found it entertaining. I don't think the demon rum was consumed in mass quantities as she tried to make you believe (that same bottle keeps reappearing over and over). But it starts off Hunter Thompson crazy and incompetent (8:50 "Holy fuck that's a Coast Guard ship!") and ends up like a real voyage...with unplanned surprises, some resourcefulness needed, and wishing it wasn't over.

That was one of the crazy-ass things that kept me watching :lol:

I think part of the draw was the question "is this insanity/incompetence real or contrived?" My guess a good bit contrived, but with enough nonsense in there to think some of it was real. By the end, when it's just the chick and Redbeard, engine dead and him steering with emergency tiller, it's more like a real voyage. And the chick can fish.

This I think is Redbeard's parents' channel. They own all 3 boats. You wouldn't have known it was the same trip.

i was kind impressed that the wheel went dead but the rigged the emergency tiller and kept on.  I'm guessing  they had to figure that out on the fly.  I'm guessing ,given that his parents apparently own three boats, that redbeard has actually grown up sailing so is much more experience that it looks on the "kids boat".  

 

all i can say about these guys is:

  • if they pulled up to the dock next to me, i'd probably ending up getting pissed and smoking a shit ton of herb with them
  • the newbie girl is pretty damn game, a bit crazy and a bit reckless but game none the less
  • the newbie girl has a body that draws the male gaze (the lesbian gaze as well i assume) from about 1/2 mile away.

I'm kind of torn between goodonem for getting out there and having an adventure, vs them being the kind of boat that seems to rely on the kindness of strangers to make it safely to port.

... but I'm pretty sure I'd have wanted to be off that boat.

Yes it seems reckless and dangerously and ridiculous, but at 22 I would have been doing Jell-O shots and surfing naked behind that boat. I seem to remember weekends like that.

Didn’t watch all 45 minutes of it, but I have to say that it was probably the most artistically accomplished of the “sailing on YouTube “ microgenre I’ve seen recently, apart from this gem of course

The Atticus couple have bought a new boat. This is either proof that they are making $$$ cruising, or someone got an inheritance. $205K Pacific Seacraft 40. That's quite an upgrade from their first Atticus! 

IMO this couple have one of the better vlogs. Yes, they have used the trad formulas and have also done some dumb stuff. But they appear to be themselves in the videos, enjoy each other's company, and are sharing their good time as well as being informational. They met working as hired hands on somebody's superyacht (she a stewardess and he a deckhand) and he talked her into sailing off with him.

Not astroturfed or faked as such. The creator, one 'Moxie Marlinspike' (tall dude with dreads), really is a committed anarchist and anti-establishment hippie. He is also one of the finest computer coders and cybersecurity brains on the planet:

https://www.wired.com/2016/07/meet-moxie-marlinspike-anarchist-bringing-encryption-us/

He created Signal, the clever open-source encryption protocol used by WhatsApp, Twitter, etc. He could be a multibillionaire, if he cared about money. Interesting character, with a very different world view than the majority sailing demographic.

Did notice about $100,000 on Kick Starter a while back. Don't know how much they were given in the end.

I realize it is all theater but noticed the surveyor lighting the stove to see if it worked. And the tv.

Suppose they have a system but I would rather have them spend their time checking the hull or deck for moisture etc.

I wouldn't be paying someone to turn on the stove. Think most of us can handle that.

Then again, maybe they weren't allowed to check things or the owner didn't show them etc.

Perhaps they didn't even meet the owners. But there was a listing broker, buying broker, rig surveyor, marine surveyor.  A different league now I guess.

Not sailing related, but certainly one of the first "youtubers".  Good music, good artwork, good science engineering and while not dumbed down, understandable and clear.  Lot's of time watching these when my kids were kids.  

Anyone who uses Val Bennets The Russians Are Coming, a reggae version of take 5, as opening credits, gets credit from me. 

Now with a new series.

Wow. Wish somebody would bump up my cruising kitty by $93K. I wouldn't have to hunt for 6 episodes for my next boat - I know exactly where it is and would have it under contract in a few days.

If they were just Jello dreadlock'd kids that bought a shitty boat for an adventure, that would be one thing.  But wasn't that a delivery to put all three of those into charter?  Eeek.

Wilderness

 

Cold. Strong winds, big wind chill. Big rough seas. Desolate islands without any real greenery.

The wildlife is spectacular I'll grant that.

After spending a winter in the pack even Macquarie Island in very early spring looked inviting. At least it was green. Coming back up the Derwent and smelling the land was so nice.

By all means go & see for yourself. I'm quite happy to sail places somewhat less extreme.

I've been on the end of the Mertz glacier, where it's highly unlikely any humans will ever go again.

Because it broke off and floated away. It's now a giant iceberg.

We chipped a sled load of ice off of it though, so we could listen to the popping of multi-thousand year old bubbles as the ice melted in our favoured beverages.

These days I don't go out of sight of land and like a nice heavy mooring to ride on overnight. Yes I am a wimp.

Pathetic trolling as usual, from the compulsively mendacious FKT.  The Republic of Ireland has many deep failings, which I post about myself.  One of the few things tat we get right is not invading other countries.

My criticism is of those who claim that their countries are virtuous, or that their invasion of other places is good.  FKT had adopted a policy of blatantly lying about my stance.

But then since FKT went utterly ape-shit raging in his denial of genocidal policy in Australia, I am sure he will be back again soon in another macho rage to tell us how invasion is good.

Colonization always leads to genocide, but not always intentionally. Sometimes the colonizers genuinely thought they were helping 'the poor savages'...St, Brendan would have been responsible for the demise of the Beothuks if only he had been a better real estate shill like Eric Raud and Lief Ericson...Greenland...really? Any and all Europeans have been deadly to indigenous people for going on four centuries.

But to move on from the detrius of PA, what does the collective critical mass think of Magic Carpet? I find they don't have a lot to say but I like the way they say it...

The "intent" defence against colonial genocide is fatally flawed.  If you beat someone up to "teach them a lesson", then it's a weak defence to claim that you didn't intend to actually kill them.

The "help the poor savages" defence is as disingenuous as the Chinese communists's system of "rediscovering the dignity of manual labour", or of another empire's labeling of its vast gulag of profit-making prisons as "correctional", or Ireland's labeling of its child abuse centres as "Industrial schools"

Ajax was there on a submarine whose sole purpose was to be part of system capable of blowing up the world.

Like most people engaged in mass violence, Ajax gets very upset when it is pointed out to him that blowing up the world, or equipping yourself to do so, is not only deeply uncool but also deeply deranged and thoroughly evil.

I think they had the boat unwrapped and put in the water as part of pre-purchase checking it out and sea-trialing.

Looked at a boat outside Boston this weekend (on the hard), and crews were putting floating docks back in the water there.

Of course I have no taste. I am ashamed to admit I watched Sailing GBU this weekend and liked it. I laughed through the whole thing.

The two of them have barely any clue what they are doing, and let’s just say they are not super geniuses (maybe graduated junior high?? Definitely not going to be whisked off to mission control to save the day anytime soon) but they are funny. They have been out there on a horrible boat for 3 years and they still like each other and are having fun. The girl is game for anything, except perhaps a baby. I love it when Captain Matt looks into the camera and gives us some sailing tips. THAT is some funny shit. Zero whining, lots of stupid snafus, and somehow they haven’t sunk. Meanwhile in the same 3 years everything Zingaro has put in the water has sunk.

They have been out there on a horrible boat for 3 years and they still like each other and are having fun. The girl is game for anything, except perhaps a baby. I love it when Captain Matt looks into the camera and gives us some sailing tips. THAT is some funny shit. Zero whining, lots of stupid snafus, and somehow they haven’t sunk. Meanwhile in the same 3 years everything Zingaro has put in the water has sunk.

 

Same. They are one of the few people out there who appear to be 1) having fun and 2) not being whingey bourgeois show-offs, good on em

I watch Kevin Boothby, Tom Cunliffe, and Erik Aanderaa.  I hate and avoid sideboob selfie crowd.  But yesterday I discovered Wind Hippie, and that young lady is just wonderful.  Kind, cheerful, hard working, intelligent, and is covering serious miles with a small simple boat.  Bad ass sailor, guts her own fish, ain't afraid. Gives me hope.

Totally agree.  Fun to watch and the boat is basic and simple.  In her last post she repaired her fresh water pump by cutting a new leather and stated that this how her dad taught her to fix it.

Maybe everyone knows already and I am late to the party, but I came across „Sea Change“ recently 

Six episodes, from 2016/2017. 

Three guys on a Bob Perry designed Lafitte 44, travel Florida to Suriname. 

A little bit „next Hemingway“ to their narration but it is mercifully short and they actually avoid much talking of or revealing information about themselves at all

The cinematography however, is really excellent, as is the editing. Makes the rest of yt seem like crappy home videos / reality tv trash - which it sorta is

Filmed mostly with a red epic and two full frame dslrs- probably was about  30k usd or more of camera gear onboard - quality is obvious though

Wind Hippie is one of the few I watch, an antidote to the vacuous wannabe Kardashian crowd

Yes, WindHippie is not a wannabe Kardashian.  And also not hyper-sponsored like Sailing Uma or La Vagabonde.

So I want to like WindHippie.  But she uses that fake opera-singing thing to announce trivial actions, which I loathe and hate and deplore in any situation ... so if I try watching WindHippie, I end up hating her.  And since I don't want to hate her, I don't watch her.

Having raised two daughters, trust me, that's how they are.  She does that at home when she opens a can of cat food, I guarantee you.

I'll match your two and raise by one...and agree with you.
