  1. Thst looked hairy stuff, and im conscious the screen never captures how steep a wave really is.

  2. Sam… Can you give me any simple thoughts on a boat to buy that is cheap and keep in a marina for possibly a couple years and then learn how to sail as I go? Got some cash and want a cheap place to live. I have electrical and carpentry skills to help with repairs.

  3. I like your headlight! I was on a night watch going 4-7 knots and I suddenly realized, a decent headlight would give us enough time to slow or steer out of the way. (We'd lost our anchor and fore deck light early in the trip. The spinnaker halyard must have hooked it. The light housing sticks out. When I thought a line was sweeping across the deck I flattened myself and immediately knew to cover my head with my arms so the rope wouldn't hook my neck or an ear. I realized this in a tenth of a second. Guess the mast light makers don't think that fast. And one might think two screws wouldn't be strong enough, but the screws are still in place. The housing failed. )
    The mesh bunk. Great idea. I made a bed for my dog when she was incontinent. I just used the heavy duty pet screen. It was more than strong enough. Years later it's still around somewhere, still good. I stretched the screen across 1/2" PVC pipes, held down with a strip of the PVC (I ran some of the pipe through my table saw.) screwed every few inches with wide head sheet metal screws. This would work great for a bunk. (My dog loved the bed, just sleeping on the screen. She didn't piddle in it very often, and it knocked the dirt, loose skin and some hair into the catch basin (a round hot water tank overflow basin ABS). I would think the idea 'lee cloth' would be a comfortable bed about 24" wide and then turn up on the sides. (I sleep on my side, no snoring, great sleep. My zig zag body position resists the rolling. So you wouldn't go very far on a roll. I was on a catamaran so a bit different. But for three months, often in 2-3 meter seas.

  4. Been following you for a while. Same thing happened to me yesterday. I plugged in a 12 volt cooler and the electrical panel caught fire. was no fuse on the main coming to panel and the 12volt socket and usb were not fused and were daisy chained. i don't see who did this lol.

  5. It’s good to see that even legendary sailors get seasick! What do you when that happens? Medication? Ginger ale? Grin and bear it?

  6. Damn, that looked like some of the inlets and passes I had to deal with in French Polynesia last year. There was one I simply could not get into, much like your first one. Others were also seriously sketchy with big waves, but there is an advantage out there. The equatorial current commonly bends the outflow in a westerly direction so you can keep to the eastern side of the passes, if that is their orientation, and avoid the worst waves. The inlets you are dealing with have no such bias. By the way, you would definitely enjoy the South Pacific, it was awesome sailing in steady trade winds, and I was solo in not much bigger a boat, with far less experience than you.

  7. Shits on fire–>grinning
    Seasick gonna die–>grinning
    No f'n wind–>grinning
    About to get smashed in a turbulent current–>grinning

    Love you, man!

  8. Geez. How do you stay (or look) so calm in midst of all that chaos. Nerves of steel Holmes! QUSTION: What is the brand/type of spot light on the bow? I just added a steaming light- but a “spot” light at deck seems way better choice.
    And: what is the Plotter App again? I’m learning SO much watching your channel. 😊🙏🙏🙏

  9. my brother my best friend and me, tried to cross the Strait of Gibraltar with a small dinghy ,on s'est battu toute la nuit en essayant de ramer cotre le le courant, and we were lost in the middle of the Mediterranean for a whole day maybe 2 days until a military boat french got us back saved us .

  10. The primary risk with 220/110V electric systems is an electrical shock. The primary risk with 12V systems is fire. Like you, I had a smoldering wire on board my boat and concluded it was time to do a complete rewire, including a new circuit breaker panel. If you do, dont cheap out with household wiring or welding wire, as the insulation can break down if in contact with diesel.

  11. The primary cause of sea sickness is the disconnect between your inner balance and the horizon your eyes perceive. Consequently, it is much more likely to effect you if you are down below than if you are in the cockpit, with your eyes focused on the horizon. That is why passengers are far more prone to the malady than skipper or crew. Same with road vehicles – back seat passengers are more prone than front seat passengers or driver. Never suffered once, since I learnt that.

  12. when i go under when its rolling i keep my eyes shut and just blink them open for a millisecond to find my way. It keeps the inner ear/eye confusion away

  13. Scanned the comments and no one mentioned this fun fact. 12v powered USB chargers can fail and melt down. A fuse on the supply won't prevent this if the melt down doesn't pull more than the rated load. I am not familiar with the intricacies of USB chargers, but basically the only way to avoid this is by switching off the supply when not using. Mine failed with nothing plugged into it, but the 12v supply had been on for +24 hrs. Great episode. Active passage making with excellent p(f)ucker factor
