Ironically an article in that same CW edition titled:

"Say Good-bye to Through-Hull Worries
Plumbing by Steve D'Antonio
Knowing that every seacock below your boat's waterline is in sound working order is one of the cornerstones of good seamanship"
When I was in the UK there was a sailing Magazine for 4 knot shit box owners called practical boat owner. We called it 'Practically' a boat owner. It ran endless boring stories about how to over capitalize your shitbox. Lots of beardy types witting stories (with lots step by step pics of them wearing cardigans) about how to make a galley sink out of a dogs bowl or how to tie your own Baggywrinkle using the heads of old mops. One month they ran this great piece about how to replace sea cocks whilst your boat was still in the water. It involved swimming under the boat and putting a squash ball in the hole before you unscrewed the fitting from inside. The theroy was that the water pressure would hold the ball in place. Next month there was a front page retraction after someone tried it, removed the sea cock and then copped a water cannon propelled squash ball right between the eyes followed by enough brown Poole Harbour water to sink his shitbox.

I think the author was a chap called Charles Darwin.

Well if you give these grifters money it will prove they are doing one thing right anyway. Why would you give them a penny? Either their boat was insured (in which case your donation will just help them to continue to not work for a living) or it was not (in which case they bought something that they couldn't afford- if they had bought a McMansion in the 'burbs they couldn't afford to insure would you chuck them a few bucks? No of course you wouldn't! ). Since you are only giving them money because she is cute, we have established what she is, so why not ask that she continues down her chosen profession and gets her tits out! Maybe even print them on a new T shirt design! Because if she had a head like a dropped pie no one would watch their shit and give her money. So their boat sank? Shit happens but why should they expect other people pay for it? Tell them to spend their own fucking money on their dreams. 

Here is some ideas for the next t shirt.

Um....k.  Think we need to stop projecting.

(or atleast say no the next round of shots)

For the rest of everybody reading...the Wicked Salty crew aren't and have never been the typical rattle the can Patreon beggars.  I don't think they even had a Patreon until their $2k Nikon was stolen in the Bahamas and they had the....gasp.....idea that maybe the hours it takes to put up weekly vids to entertain people for free might have some return.  Or atleast enough of the 20k a week people that watch their vids might pony up enough to replace their Nikon.

They work restaurants, which isn't exactly the easiest gig in the world, and  more than a year after working for tips they finally have enough cheddar bankrolled to fund another boat and another trip to the Bahamas and maybe they can make this YouTube thang work and maybe the whole is their oyster.....

...and then they get a text their Freedom is sinking.

Lets put that statement to the test...

- Cute looking girl...Check

- Guy with dweeby facial hair...Check

- Boat and lifestyle they can't afford without begging....Check

- Patreon account...Check

- Flogging boat T shirts on the interwebs...Check

- First reaction when something goes is to reach for the camera...Check

- 60% content of every vid being of them talking about themselves...Check

- Every video ends with them asking for money...Check

- Fawning, adoring acolyte defending them on this thread...Check

They might have not started out as the typical rattle the can vloggers but they don't pass the sniff test anymore. If it walks like a duck...

Did those people ever explain what went wrong ? So far the sinking doesn't make sense.


One thing I have discovered about my fellow sailing bloggers (sold the boat and left scotland now by the way) is that they know how to drive traffic to their films.  Nothing like a bit of suspense and passion.... and a nice girl

I  think I may have hit upon a way of improving the level of "engagement" with youtube films.

One in ten of the people who watched this film felt that they had to make a comment. Most calling me a twassock in a most creative range of different ways

  Well you've been wearing that schtick on your sleeve for years.  Ever heard the phrasing, "Oh he was just born in the wrong century".  Half the time when I watch your vids I think you really should've been born a green haired Gucci communist uni student.  You'd fit in with that crowd today.  Gee just wondering, where do you sit on Brexit?

  Good on those hunters, and the fishermen you can't stop bitching about.  Because yes, they care more about the resources and the environment, and actually DO things to make sure their kids and grandkids and great grandkids can still wake up and plug a couple of birds for the pot.

  So keep whinging Dylan...I'll be having a bear meat burger and a pint on deck with the couple you chased off Youtube.

Really....

do you have some evidence for how little I do and how much the Ipswich gun club does?

maybe you are just guessing

I did not chase them off. I was filming after they had finished blasting the locals into the next dimension and just as I was about to go and try to film the birds.... the river that night was deathly quiet.

I turned over not a frame.

It was bloody spooky

I spoke to them briefly when we met on the beach and before I got the camera out - they told me I was a know nothing and that they love the birds more than I do

they have an odd way of expressing that love

  We're never going to agree.  Ever.

  I'm a member of a fish & hunt club, and once had an apartment next to a primary school.  And was served with an eviction notice because I bodged up a tripod from lumber and dressed out a deer within sight of kids.  Oh my.

  We also planted 1000 native trees this year after clearing out all the Purple Lustrife (gift from England, thanks), planted 100 acres of food plots for deer that will probably starve otherwise in the forecasted bad winter we will probably get, and stocked 536,000 salmon in a lake that would be overrun by invasive species otherwise.

  And are barred on all sides by ignorant folk, all time, like you.  So Dylan, from the bottom of my heart, fuck you.

  And here's a dirge I bid you adieu





  I served in a highland regiment of Canada, and my mum is a MacDonald, so we'll leave it as a double middle finger, fuck you.

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.

Yup. I think commercial fishermen are the same breed everywhere. My cousin, a commercial fisherman, used to make me laugh when he said "we got to keep the oil rigs off the Georges Banks - they will destroy the fishery". The fishermen have proven quite capable of that all by themselves. However, I do think that the majority of sports fishermen and hunters do actually give a shit about the environment...its just that they are anachronisms: hunter-gatherers in a species that has evolved beyond that survival strategy.

Pay him no mind mate. He only likes Vloggers that are young, female attention whores. Perhaps he even lives in some fantasy where he will one day meet them in a quite anchorage somewhere, be invited over for a drink and after Dwebby 'tash passes out falls asleep , she starts on him like a deranged porn star. Or maybe it is her that falls asleep and he and 'tash spend an enjoyable evening talking about the hunt and end up holding each others guns, who knows? But regardless which one of them he fancies, he has hitched his dinghy firmly to their type of vlog, where a pretty couple in a hot place bat their eyelids at the camera, talk about themselves and ask people to pay money to wear t shirts promoting their website. I guess it is a form of escapism or perhaps it is just that their videos get past the firewall on his work computer that blocks porn hub.(Hopefully for his fellow workers sake his cubicle has high partitions). 

Sadly your videos are not to his liking, You just aren't his type mate,

We also saved the dodo bird from extinction, stopped the sea level from rising, helped an old lady cross the road and got a fluffy white kitten out of a tree. This winter we will halt global warming, buy the entire amazon jungle and fence it off and cure all cancers. And if we have time we will execute some defenseless animals for shits and giggles.
Time magazine rang. This years Man of the year award is between you and Pope Francis. Good luck mate you deserve it.

I had to skim that. Wow! I know how they felt. I sunk our present boat (CHRISTMAS), to the level of water they had in their cabin, in 2000, pre-Youtube. How things have changed! 

But I hit a submerged (and well charted,...) rock and we started to go down, fast. With two children, we never worried for our safety. Where there are rocks, there is usually land nearby. So with water flooding over the cabin sole like a tsunami, I started the engine, headed for a nearby island, and floored it! I killed the engine about 100 yards off the island, as I could see the water in the cabin was about to reach the air intake. 

Driven up on the beach, we had water over the starboard pilot berth. 

Thus began a long night of dismantling and jury rigging the massive leak (the centerboard trunk was off the keel!) and floating off the next morning. With pumps running and the CG behind us, we (me and two friends), powered into the slings at the nearest travel lift, and that was the end of season 2000, in early August. 

No Youtube record. I did write a story that they printed in Cruising World. That and only about 2 paragraphs in the local paper is the only record. 
Having seen your boat and the love and care you put into it, your story is incredible. 

I can't imagine how you "jury rig" getting the centerboard trunk back onto the keel on an island beach to get back home. Amazing job and now we all get to enjoy Christmas in the videos that you share. Bravo.

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.

I notice Delos are now running over 6 months and one ocean behind real time and their vids are getting longer. The last one is nearly an hour long. Dylan don't these two things go contrary to vlogging success 101?

a good point

however, I have been using youtube for a decade now and like anything everything changes.

At one time short was brilliant and hits were everything.

Youtube payed people per hit - $1 per thousand.

I had a 17 million hit trucking  film that was 3 minutes long.

However, unless you get the millions it is small beer.  The vloggers are getting 260,000 hits as long as they have a girl in the thumbnail. So even at $250 per film that is not enough to cover their costs.

people used youtube to drive traffic to good quality DVDs - or in my case downloadable films which looked better on their tellies than off the web.

Now youtube pays buggerall or nowt -

The other change that has happened is that youtube is better quality than any DVD - it can look bloody good on a big telly - youtube deliver 4K

So as makers of decent films (rather than soap operas) we are happy that people can watch on a big screen as opposed to being delivered from a laptop through shit speakers.

The market had divided into the uber regular on the water soap opera with its twice weekly feeds, live chats, teeshirts and relentless push towards patreon.

They promised they will post a film a week so that is what you are going to get - even if nothing of any significance happened at all.

those people stick to the flesh pots because that is where the bandwidth is - which is why they are bumping into each other.

Nothing wrong with that - people like an up to date thing - people like a bikini - lovely looki9ng people most of them.

but.... making good films takes fekkin hour after hour of fekkin hard graft at a big computer with seven 3tb hard drives thrumming beside you.  Editing 4K films hoovers up the power, disk space, computing power.

The weekly gobbets from the soap operas are slammed together on laptops and posted bang on time.- which is why there are a lot of talking heads and the most rudimentary of voice overs.

They are designed to be gorged on the laptop.

Delos and I have gone the other way - we want people to say - oh good, a new delos film, I  will watch it on a   big screen smart TV  with decent speakers.

To make it work on your big telly requires colour balancing and audio mixing. For Delos to do those things is probably two days work.

So now they watch on the big telly - bloody good 

- but fek me - they watch the film but there is no bloody button to take them to paypal or patreon.

  if they liked the film enough to want the people to carry on making them.

So if you want to watch tits on a laptop - man there is lots of that - the web will provide that by the bucket load.

blow the tits up onto your big smart TV and the cracks will begin to show.

The financial consequences of this are starting to come home

Delos appears to be doing okay. 

I have done less well

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.

I'm voting for Pope Francis (or his talking mule). Anyone who stops sea level rise & global warming doesn't deserve an award. I want a deep waterfront without moving house.
