I like the ones that tell a story and get a little technical showing you how things work
. I would have to say my favorite is a toss up between Sailing Nahoa and The O'Kelly's. One thing I love about The O'Kelly's is they have no Patreon. They're doing it on their own for the love of sailing. Mad respect. Both of them talk about their boats and how to sail them. Sailing GBU and Bums on a Boat
are both really cool couples that doing it on a shoestring budget
. They talk a lot about their boats also. I can't leave out the man himself, Rick Moore. He's just a cool dude cruising one Sofisticated Lady.
A couple of new ones that are really technical is Sailing Lady Africa
and Parlay Revival. They did total rebuilds. Lady Africa
on an old boat, and Parlay on a hurricane
damaged boat. Of course Delos and Sailing Doodles are always great to watch and really mix things up.
I used to watch Vegabonds but just had to unsubscribe after their last PR stunt. I kinda raised an eyebrow at the boat deal, but when they took on Greta, I was out. It seems they are in it for the money now.
The latest guy doing it, and he's totally nuts, is 9to5Less. That guy.. He is making it happen for himself and his girl Jess. Another brand new one is Peter Rollo. He just bought a big cat, took three hours of lessons and headed out from New Zealand
or something like that.
Anyway, those are all of them I am subscribed to. Our youngest graduates this May and our plan is to sell our house, get a couple of rental properties and a couple of flip houses over the next year or so and hit the water
. I have our channel started and we're going to document our journey from being land locked to living on board. We looked at our first big cats a few weeks ago in Houston
and the wife is now 100% on board (pun intended). We're probably leaning toward a Leopard
44 at this point, but we're in the early stages and that will probably change.
Our channel is SV Salacia. We have 6 subscribers and 1 "episode" video at this point. In episode 1, I'm figuring out how to record
and edit and was so excited about looking at a Lagoon
450 that I totally forgot to record
any of it! Episode 2 should be out this weekend and we'll talk about why we decided to take on this adventure. We have no Patreon and don't plan on it.
