Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

Sea Dog, and some others I have watched off and on, seem to be falling into the trap of not having a lot of content. The end result is videos transitioning from interesting to the mundane. Evans and Odd went from huge rebuilds to motoring back and forth to different anchorages to avoid wind, Sea Dog recording replacing his head Y valve, and Doodles rotating bikini models while he filters contaminated fuel. All are spending too much time talking at the camera. 

While Delos has gone from lots of refits to yet another crawl around Caribbean tourist hotspots, as if there was any shortage thereof.  The calls for donations are becoming more prominent and more assertive.  I think they have a long-term problem with the characters: Brian and Karin are worthy but dull.  Brady and the short-term crew provided the sparkle.

I agree that Uma has the best content right now.  The sailing itself is most light airs short hops, but the location is stunning and the cinematography is brilliant.  They haven't done the skillshare promos for a while, which helps.

if you all run across some interesting well produced videos please continue to share. We are a month or two away from the 10 month PNW grey drizzle season and I will need some stimulation.

Do you want fine sailing to stimulate your mind?  Or bikinis to stimulate somewhere lower down? :D

First of all I had a few klicks from my favorite sailing forum so I started to search for the tread. Found it! I'm the guy who bought that massive steel thing...  Regarding the mustache, I always

Hes been a liveaboard marina rat for about a  year now.

So has just about every other foreign flagged cruiser that managed to get into NZ before the covid lockdowns happened.

I watch Barry, I think he's a bit of a bumbler, but he's good natured about it all. Easy enough to skip over the really excruciating bits (like when he's trying to make music).

They were also in Mauritius, La Reunion, and South Africa etc. Talk about sparkle.  Those were great videos.

I think I saw a baby in the vid, in my rapid 15 sec fast forward through it.  Truthfully, the most I could take (the most I can take with just about of these vids) was just a few secs in between fast-forwards, and I’m sure I saw a baby.  If so, big fail... :-)

Sorta ruins the fantasy...I keep thinking of diapers...and diarrhea...in the tropics...

Ah go easy on Barry.  He is no philosopher, he'd look crap in a bikini, and he's Captain Slow, but he has successfully and safely solo-sailed his boat from Portugal across the Atlantic, and across the pacific to Kiwiland.   He doesn't push his boat hard, and he doesn't push himself hard at sea, which is probably wise cos he's no youngster.

If that is giving singelanhders a bad name, I dunno what ya gotta do to be in the 1%.  Knit your own sails from seaweed?

Barry has come a long way, not just halfway around the world but in terms of knowledge. In one of his earliest video's he talks about the front sail.

So, Spanish speaking Bloke with excellent teeth makes videos about building off grid cabin sans planning consent..... stopped by rozzers.

 

Then buys wooden decked unserveyed "ready to go" 30 footer with wooden decks in Guatemala using money from patrons and indulgent dad.... boat more rotten than a rotten thing

Goes to one of most popular anchorages in entire island chain during peak season and complains it's crowded: Check

This video (or the bits I watched whilst skipping through) reinforced my opinion that the Instagram/Patreon cruisers must generally have pretty narcissistic character types to spend so much time staging and filming that much of their daily lives. There is no way I'd have the patience keep that shit up enough to create that volume of 'content'.

In America, everyone with a yacht has perfect teeth.

It would be interesting to see a collage of the teeth on this board...probably not up to Youtuber over-whitened standards I'm guessing.

Here's a couple who maintain luminescent smiles. They are both AV professionals, so make some well-produced videos. Always a chill vibe, kind of like YT Sailboat Muzak. They don't seem to have a plan to go anywhere new though. I think it's because she gets seasick every time they venture out of the ICW.

Yes, Mads Dahlke's Athena has actually gone sailing.  Sure, only for a few miles in sheltered water in a force 1, but they managed an exhilarating 4 knots.

 

:o Surely it must be time to take down the sails and replace all the stitching.  By hand.  With some exotic thread that requires special tools.

Haha :D

But the sails look fairly ancient, so that might not be a bad idea for the winter.  But Mads would probably want to do it with complex electronics.

I never realised that this warrior would fit well in the ugly dodger collection. At first I thought Mad's personnal tastes were to blame, but apparently it was there already when he got it.

My personal taste may be to blame, but I think the very angular dodger goes well with the sharp-cornered deck house. But I don't find Mads' boat particularly pretty...

At this rate Sail Life will try to stay in the Caribbean during Hurricane season and Binky will remain an un-driven garage queen.

Well it's far from being the ugliest dodger of them all, granted. Some of those in that collection are downright dangerous for the retinas. So what about a Dodger that looks too much like a spaceship from the 80s collection?

I think pretty is relative.  The Warrior38 had 4 sleeping cabins + 2 heads in a 38-foot boat, so by rights it should  have ended up like a pregnant whale.  But it mostly looks ok, which is quite an achievement.

:ph34r: Whereas I immediately got out the drawings to see if that design would simplify construction of my own nascent  Ugly Dodger.  Sadly, the deckhouse is too narrow.  But I could totally dig the Colonial Viper cockpit vibe.

For those Newbies who still believe that modern production cats don't sink:

1.  So glad this ended without serious medical issues (not counting the trauma of the skipper and owner).

2.  Kudos to the Hellenic Coast Guard.  Seems like they were super fast to respond (always good to see).

3.  Check those thru-hulls kiddies!

Happy Labor Day to all you SA Ruffians!

Hawaii then - and now.  Two “old time” cruisers show and tell about the free and easy good ol’ days” in Hawaii, vs. the nowadays there, with rules and regulations and people monitoring your comings and going.  (Beware: occasional old VHS footage, in case your eyes aren’t trained for very low resolution images :-) )

Yes, the world gets smaller.  

The days of Robin Lee Graham, where you could just wash up on the shore and work a few weeks to earn your next passage are gone.  

Visas, Permits, Cruising Fees.  And who can Blame them?

Now we read blogs of dirtbag cruisers who have to make their sailing decisions on what fees they can afford.  

Douglass Adams reminds us of tourist planets so popular that they weigh everyone coming and going, and extract any excess mass before they leave.

Old lighthouses where I used to roll under my parked truck to sleep are now Disneyfied attractions where you have to pay to take a trolly to see.

One of my Mom’s friends told me that she could always tell when the train pulled into Los Angeles, because she could smell the orange blossoms.  LMFAO.  That disappeared a hundred years ago.

When I was a kid, the dogs roamed far and wide and visited all the neighbors within a few miles. Now, they’re supposed to be tied up 24/7 and the neighbors call 911 if they see a dog.   

We can go farther North and South into harder country. But it’s all disappearing.  

You can designate a tract as a “wilderness area” but that only means that thousands if people will descend on it, screaming and shitting.

Daniel Boone wouldn’t even know what to do.

IIRC, they paid Big Bucks for a used unit. Far more than the value of their boat. Then more Bucks for a new saildrive unit, as the first one never worked correctly.  IDK what issues developed since then.  I guess that's one example of how it can pay to be very public with your problems.

I thought they were given the first OceanVolt as a freebie from catamaran man, then given the new saildrive leg as a freebie from OceanVolt.

Actually it seems like there is an un-serviced niche in the market. Why not some handsome sailing gentlemen in very small swimsuits to capture the attention of women (and men) who appreciate that sort of thing?

We sailed with a young couple for a while that had no anchor windlass (on a 36' boat). The women on other boats would look forward to watching the male member of the crew pull up the anchor. Much sighing and fanning of fevered brows...

IDK. I thought I recalled some discussion of costs.  But it's possible that I looked that up from some other source after seeing the vids.

A while back, I saw a couple of episodes of one - can't recall any identifying information - that featured a young woman leading a tall muscle-bound stud around the Caribbean like a dumb ox on a tether.  I don't recall that he said much at all and she had poor narration skills.  Looked like she dressed him and arranged for him to "perform" a few near-naked tricks shots in each episode.  Doesn't seem to have caught on.  Or maybe YouTube just gave up on pushing it to me.

Yeah, I was gonna talk to everybody about that.  My problems are that I’ve got a remaining new mainsail balance to pay, a new cover to get made, lazy jacks to get materials for, not to mention several other sails and rigging projects to pay for.  Problems problems problems.

I’m not averse to donations, in fact I actively encourage them and would accept whatever helps you live your life vicariously through mine.  No amount too large or too small.

Thanks in advance. (With no tongue planted firmly in cheek.)

Wait a second...I gotta feeling this is the wrong crowd to be very public with about this... :-)

Well, I figure if Outremer saw a boat in return for endorsements from brows & 'stach as a good deal, then an Oceanvolt sail drive in return for plugs and data from the Uma crew seems like a steal of a deal.

I could use a new car and would even consider an electric one if a manufacturer would like me to promote it to the likes of Two Legs and Panoramix and other denizens of CA...I guess I need a successful YouTube franchise first - right?

A while back, I bought some clothes on-line and noticed a statement to the effect of:

"If you would like to be a brand ambassador and have a verified instagram following of 20,000 or more...."

This summer, I bought some from the same place (I think) and it appears that the number of required followers has increased to 40,000.   (Those might not be the exact numbers, but something like that.)

Fame inflation.

I always had trouble with that arrangement.  The big question is how many EXTRA cats did Outremer sell ?  It's difficult to see very many new cat buyers amongst the LV fanbase.  Even so, they sure did sell that cat mighty quickly.

Ok, I just had to the explore a bit further into “Sailing Girls” that Zonker posted just above.

This is pretty much exactly what happens when you take the “girl with Patreon account goes sailing in warm place” concept to its absolute worst possible conclusion.  
 

Everyone should watch this and weep.  OTOH, it’s very comedic.   Wait —that’s a movie genre: tragi-comedy.  (And the comments on the vid are pure gold!). Ya just have to watch it and scan the comments.  Sadly, we never get to meet skipper “Barry” in this epic sea film.

Spoiler: [traveling from Tasmania to Australia, crossing Bass Strait, and the engine dies]: “OMG, guys!  So we thought, let’s raise the mainsail instead !!”]

The new Citroen Ami is so cute that it risks becoming associated only with women.  To counteract this, Citroen needs to proactively place the car with manly men.

With a bit of time in the gym and some lycra clothing, Jim's sexy body can launch the car and his channel to a new audience

Sold quickly after they put it on sale? And isn't it usual with cars too to get the lease from manufacturer? "We are fans since the beginning and felt their honest and human values meets ours and they might be great ambassadors for Outremer. They had issues finding a loan for their boat, so we stepped in helping them getting a lease” explain Xavier Desmarest, CEO of Outremer."

That’s what redeems the video - her “cute/charming” accent.  Otherwise, without it, the vid is an object lesson in exactly what not to do.

But she looks like a "beurette" (probably from algerian or morocan origin), cool vid though ! :)

She’s a flamboyant, flirtatious, ditzy character and was flouncing around here for a while looking for a boat to get North on, and that was it. Neither of the people, nor the boat were "offshore capable".

 

The skipper was a boat buyer from NSW returning North with his newly purchased old boat.

 The skipper thought she was an experienced hand and she thought he was……What could possibly go wrong !

It's not unusual to see inexperienced, unprepared people’s trips turn into a farce if they don’t have any ability.They kept rescue services on standby and were eventually collected in the strait and towed into Eden by the marine police.
