Am încercat să navighez spre Portsmouth, dar curentul m-a scuipat

Am încercat să navighez de la Brighton la Portsmouth, dar curenții sunt prea puternici, așa că fac o diversiune către portul de vaci de pe Insula Wight. Nu erau vaci.

  1. Sam, I had similar issues with my Yanmar last year…would run after bleeding for varying amounts of time, then stop. Turned out to be the low pressure fuel pump, a fairly inexpensive part but a booger to install. Diagnosis was made based on a tiny fuel presence on touching the pump (it's almost impossible to see on my engine). Supposedly, a rare failure, but something to keep in mind. Thanks for the great videos and your consistently positive attitude :^)

  2. No cows in Cowes eh? I used to keep a 27 ft yacht at Newhaven (good safe harbour in any state of wind or tide) and you misjudge the tides along the S Coast and the Solent at your peril. Even worse when you get down around Cherbourg, the Channel Islands and St Malo. (St Malo really worth visiting btw.) I once spent an miserable night caught against the tide trying to get to Lézardrieux.

  3. If you do that video of her house, you should do some drone videos too. I was surprised that’s where you were because from what we’re seeing on the news, Ft. Meyers looked as if it was totally gone & it looked like flattened rubbish everywhere….but, the Boats were the very saddest because many of them were homes too. They looked as if a child had been playing with toy sailboats and piled them all on top of each other at Marina’s. Many had canvas dodgers and coverings that to me mean someone was using it or living aboard & not just in storage for the season.. They were broken like little toys too…..

  4. My boat lives right round where you were going (hasler) I've been caught out twice by the tide coming out of the harbour but managed to get through. its crazy how fast it is through there!

  5. Hey yeah, hard to believe that Fiona had hit three countries towards giving a massive healing towards so many that were affected by Fiona and Ian, at least gave you an opportunity to see your family and friends and storms tend to pay it forward in an odd way.

  6. Such a shame you missed Pompey. So much to see, Warrior, Victory and Mary Rose. My home town. We would have been pleased to host you. Try and come back once you resume in the Spring and let us know when you are arriving. Doug.

  7. Small world I’m born and raised Punta Gorda boy myself. Living up in the panhandle these day, but all my family is still down in Punta Gorda / North Fort Myers’s area. Glad to hear your family stayed safe during the storm. My family said this one was worse than hurricane Charlie by far. I’ll probably end up down there real soon myself to help out my parents with their repairs. Enjoy watching your adventures, safe travels.

  8. The trick to getting into Portsmouth Harbour against the ebb is to keep left in shallow water, and then hug the West shore by Fort Blockhouse through the narrows. If there is sufficient depth, approaching from the Inner Swatchway avoids most adverse tides, and then it is just the narrows to contend with. Avoiding the maximum ebb helps.

  9. Cowes and surrounds are such a delight. Been there on many occasions and would say that you did better in anchoring in Cowes than Portsmouth. Best view of Portsmouth is when you're leaving 😉

  10. Hey Sam, you most likely have a pinhole in your fuel line. Safe yourself a lot of grief and just replace the line from your diesel tank to the external filter, and from there to the engine (yanmar 2qm15?).

    That little air leak is enough to screw up the reliably of the motor.

  11. Awesome videos you have really become a person in every one's home around the world. Thanks for all the great footage. Reminds me of looking at the ocean off a cruise ship. Mother Ocean is very Beautiful she always has special surprises for people who decide to sail or her. Thank you Sam!
