Who are your favourite boat bloggers / vloggers?

Hey guys - I've searched the forum for the bloggers/vloggers that are popular here - but a lot of the info is disjointed or really old.

So I thought I'd just ask: Who do you recommend for blogging / vlogging? What are your favourite sites / channels out there?

Thanks!

Re: Who are your favourite boat bloggers / vloggers?

I really like the new video bloggers and I would like to do that ourselves but we have no talent in that area. Plus,I definitely do not look good in a thong!

On youtube:

Sailing Uma
White Spot Pirates
Distant Shores
Drake Paragon
Catchin' Rays
Wicked Salty
SV Delos Crew
Accidental Sailor Girl
Team Giddyup
Sailing LaVagabond

Re: Who are your favourite boat bloggers / vloggers?

I enjoy the ones listed.. I like keeping up with them as it gives me motivation and inspiration to keep chugging along on my boat and blog. I get new ideas for blogs and videos from them all. Photography knowledge and tricks too.

Not only that the videos are nice because you can actually see what they are describing better than just words.

I like Zero to Cruising. Found them because I was looking for workouts while cruising. They use TRX suspension trainer and do video workouts. They are switching boats at the moment in Grenada. I will have to check out the ones you guys have listed also.

Excellent list here. I would highly recommend S/V Totem Family. They've been taking their time around the world (three years now) raising three kids aboard. Excellent writing and photography. Totem is currently crossing the Indian Ocean to Madagascar: http://www.sailingtotem.com

First one i'd taken a look at....and it had NOTHING to do with "My First Mate Suzy"

They've been cruising a very long time.....like 30 some years. Anybody here ever run into them?

What REALLY impresses me is their self reliance..... Nice to have the skills of a general contractor and a first mate that WELDS. Need a new bow sprit?.....no worries, we'll just make a new one. Mast?, we'll just get some boards, glue em together and make a new one of them too!. VERY impressive.

Re: Who are your favourite boat bloggers / vloggers?

I wish Fatty did more video's - he's a funny guy!

I just finished reading his anchoring book and its very very good. Its much more entertaining than just a regular stale book on anchoring.

I also like that he has opinions and principles and he's not afraid to let them be known. I cannot stand the wishy washy "don't offend anyone" group.

Re: Who are your favourite boat bloggers / vloggers?

My favorite Cruising Blogs are:

- Zero to Cruising (Mike and Rebecca where our house guests while they where between boats)
- Distant Shores (First Cruising videos we ever watched. We met them here in Grenada made it into a few of their videos filmed here)
- Sailing Banyon (Their boat is tied up just in front of our office)

You can check out the LTD Sailing Blog too! We publish something weekly - you can find it on our Facebook page!

Re: Who are your favourite boat bloggers / vloggers?

Attainable Adventures has to be the all time best. They review systems, sailing conditions, boats, safety ect. They review something or other and then put it out there for the sailing community to comment. And they do it in a very civilized manner.
