Catamarans just don't feel as much like sailing to me though I completely understand why people like cats. And with Ruby Rose moving on to a cat, the 'good' youtube monohull sailing channels that I enjoy are down to Uma, Delos, and videography

    Using binoculars, I predict Vera will do a watch rotation underway sooner than anyone thinks. 🥰 GoPro makes float housings. I have a shoelace securing my GoPro4 to whatever handy (boat hook) pole or mount I tie it to. Carbon composite tubing proves brittle under certain stresses. Blessings, S/V Windwalker

    Hi there! I wonder why you do not use the windlass to climb up the mast. You can the winch as a sort of safety mechanism. It will be easier all that climb... specially to the one on the deck, Molly!. Sorry for your loss, but think you are "updating" your equipment, instead of "loosing" it. Whish you three good winds and fair seas.

    I once lost a camera in the Highway. Since that moment my camera’s are always secured with a safety-line when I make a shot in a “danger zone “. It’s not only the loss of a camera, but also the loss of the images. I might look silly, but it works secure

    This can be seen as a lesson in how poorly you are prepared for MOB. If the man and not the camera had gone outboard, would the rescue maneuver have taken so long? (Sail down etc.) Or do you have the Munich maneuver, quick stop or something similar ready for this case? Just as food for thought! MfG Jan

    I would look into buying some 304 stainless steel 1/16 wire rope that you can make a loop to put around the wrist and run the cable down a pole and attach it to the go pro so you don't lose it like you did. if you tape it to the pole it will be part of the pole and not lose, that way if the pole breaks the go pro is attach to the wire rope and just pull it back in to the boat. just a thought.

    Another interesting episode full of variety. I like those little red Pilot Stations, glad you told us what they were! Of course I Googled "Sweden's Pilot Stations" and found little useful information except that you can rent some de-commissioned ones. I hoped to get some history, how they were used who crewed them (they must've had a 'spotter' to communicate with the ships via semaphore/flags), because I can't imagine the pilot running up and down the rocks to catch an outgoing boat. Did they sit there and wait for jobs, or just sleep there? Must be a whole episode just waiting to have it's story told.

    Wonder why he referred to “speed over ground” several times…sailing thru the water?

    • TheNadOby


      14 dagar sedan

      Water moves. you can sail against two knots current with 6 knots by chip log (over water) and you speed over ground will be only 4 knots. So this distinction is very useful while moving trough water. And at the end only speed over ground matters cause you want to move from point A to B.

    Figure out how to put a security line/leader to your action equipment that is pricey. What does a few meters of line cost to the troubles of loosing equipment. Just tie extra loops with rubber band keep out of the way. You have plenty of time to review how you have been doing things and access the risks and benefits again. Don't get stuck in the rut that never happened before...

    Good for Vera - already a pro at drinking from a cup! There is another SE-one sailing channel with a little boy toddler much older than Vera (who shall remain nameless) who still walks around carrying a baby's bottle sometimes. Parents catering to infantile desires of growing children only do both child and parent a huge disservice as it takes a lot of effort later on unlearn those habits and put up with tantrums as the child resists being forced to give up being pampered like a baby when he should have outgrown the behavior and been encouraged to use more grown up behavior when s/he was first ready to.
