Reddit has been keeping track of the not marina queen:

She's been dubbed the "Marina Whore" there as he anchors just outside one so he can use facilities without paying for them.
go on.............. next you'll be telling us he's sculling the tender round with a snow shovel

Doug sure knows how to impress the USCG folks...

Doug is an arrogant fuckwit.

And he's not actually sailed a junk rig himself so is in no position to talk about them. I still think his rigging won't work.

Fair comment by Zaq man on the complexity too. Simple is best, enough things go wrong regardless, no need to make it easier.

in that film I see a lot of middle aged working blokes having a lot of fun and bonding with each other while working on their svelt figures by eating pies.

sure beats a day at the firing range or shooting the fek out of the local wildlife. So far few of the predictions of disaster or failure shared on here, reddit etc have come true. He has a boat, he has a crew, he has sails, he is travelling. Goodonim.

some of the comments on my films are priceless, offensive, ignorant. Nearly as bad as have appeared on here. But no-one called me a c^&t.

Gainsayers are everywhere. I am still alive and I sailed some shit boats around a small island without too many mishaps.

Funny looking starlings though.

49 minutes of hubris, bombast and narcissism. But I can't help watching the train wreck. Is there something wrong with me?

The first thing that I caught was the third word in on the vid - “nucular” (instead of nuclear)...
49 mins of BS.



All I saw was an epic sailing voyage with beautiful sights, beautiful meals, and beautiful people, with severe navigational challenges boldly overcome. Odyssean.

Here’s a pictorial summary of the film (which also may serve as an invaluable cruising guide for those who might want to also undertake a sea voyage through the wilds of these far-off lands, called Arkansas and Oklahoma).

Wake me when the Researchers arrive.
They were researching in the film - BBQ pulled pork and donuts was one thrust, the other avenue of inquiry was dredged inland river sandbank navigation and donuts. (From a different donut shop en route.)

And Doug. The camera is always researching Doug, the many-faceted Odysseus/complex protagonist in the story (whose timeless themes shift seamlessly between Man Against Nature, and Man Against Machine, with a bit of subtle Man Against Man in there for the human drama element/plot thickener, when Doug makes sarcastic comments about his motley crew. The appearance of the donuts —in at least two different scenes—could be seen as Man Against Beast.) Anyway, lots of research going on in the film.
