I watched a couple of Gone with the Wynns, thanks to them connecting with the king of narrowboat vlogging, David Johns, of Cruising the Cut. Evidently while waiting for their new cat, the Wynns have mounted a content generating expedition down the Llangollen canal. They are very easy to watch, not just because I like multihulls, and I was reflecting on why. Vlogging couples have a unique challenge when telling a story together, in the need to balance their talk time and most importantly, not interrupt each other. There is the well known problem of, mostly men, interrupting mostly women, and on the canal vlog side you see that with Minimal List, who do a lot of two-to-camera narration. They're lovely people and it's not terrible, but you're often thinking "let her finish her sentence!" You also see, with La Vag for example, where Riley kind of owns the boat stuff and goes on about "my boat" all the time, sometimes even when Elena's there, which also somehow rankles.
Anyway, the Wynns are really well balanced and it's particularly good how they are both equally happy talking about technical details in a boat tour. Watch their recent muiltihull boat show tours for example. But they have an ease about them when talking together that works really well. See here for a random example from David John's video. (If you haven't watched Cruising the Cut by the way, Johns truly is one of the best Vloggers on any topic, especially if you like Extremely English things).

Sailing up to Alaska in the winter time
In the vernacular of my youth, Juho is eager to " hang his ass out in the breeze". Sail 50 miles from a small village, anchor alone in a fjord, hike up 4,000 feet and ski down with a drone following him.I've been watching these two since northern Norway. They seem to be unconventional (as YouTubers go) but genuine. Being Finns, they actually prefer snow and skiing to swimming with pigs. No bikinis and very little melodrama. I look forward to following Juho & Sohvi as they Keep Turning Right in their high lattitude journey. I wonder how well Starlink will work through the Northwest Passage?
Afterthought: Sometimes the talking head version of Juho wrestles with the ethics of asking people for financial support. This is a refreshing alternative to the hand outretched grifters...
It beats the hell out of watching Brian fix the refrigerator for the umpteenth time.If they have nicely shaped bodies, I'll appreciate the sight and look at them. If they don't, I won't look at them. But - it's THEIR choice. My choice is limited to looking or not looking.
I can’t avoid the thumbnails on YouTube when they auto suggest something.
What is this bizarre consoomerist mentality where buying a product in a capitalist market society is presented as some sort of incredible achievement?
It reminds me of a child who has gone to the bathroom alone for the first time - “Look Mommy, I took a shit!!”
👏 Well done junior, did you remember to wipe your ass?
This looks like some couple in their 30s, 500 subscribers but their patreon begging bowl is already set up for the “refit”. Best of luck to their Contest 38, it will likely need it.
Sure, same same … but did you have the patreon bowl 🍚 in your hand as you did so?Geeez, how about cutting them some slack?! They just bought probably their first boat. I remember what that was like. We didn't have Youtube or Facebook or Twitter or ..... but you'd best believe we found ways to tell everybody we could think of all about it.
Did someone say bikini? Helen is back, also modeling Estonian garb as she prepares some native food and drink for the cap'n. Quirky channel, but I still think it's the best musical intro in the genre.
