We Can't Step Our Mast... | Expedition Evans 36

25. april. 2021
102 636 Ganger

This has been a week of events! Our freshly fixed boat manages to runs aground sitting in its slip, we get our mast hauled to a different yard, and we get the interior of the boat picked up and organized! And behind the scenes we work through lots of emotions surrounding the delay mast stepping.
Thanks for watching-

*Our Boat*
2008 Beneteau 49
3 cabin 2 head
Westerbeke generator
Mast, sails and rig are in excellent condition and in storage
Here's what we *think* we know about her past. Keep in mind we bought her at auction without ever meeting the owner! The owner was sailing along and ran aground - hard. Hard enough that the keel pivoted and pushed the aft end up into the hull. This force cracked the internal grid in several places and broke a portion of the grid free from hull. At some point an inspection was done, insurance was called and decisions were made. See noworld.info/video/video/rXyYgtis0bOY1JY.html for how we came to own her!

  • Why are these videos released 4 months after shooting them?

    nixxonnixxon14 dager siden
    • Simple reason it gives a buffer, if they don't get all the vid done you still get a weekly update!

    • I don’t on mine but I’ve just started and not edited as well... but also safety wise there is nothing to steal on mine apart from rubbish ! You need to remember they are filming their boat, location and whether they are there or not. Sadly too many people out there might take advantage or even idiots that get jealous and vandalise etc

    • @Trucker D TV guessing there are some unsavory types who might drop in and steal, stalk, pillage? So it would make sense to only release a vid after they had left that location...

    • @Expedition Evans I can imagine some videos have 40 to 80 hours of content to review before you can even start editing. That appears to be the challenge for many. Finding that sweet spot between deciding what and how much to record then still needing to painfully decide what still needs to be edited out is difficult. Add the challenge of maintaining privacy of your location and your work load increases. Your hard work is appreciated. Both of your smiles and attitudes and beautiful relationship is why many of us watch. It is obvious you both have high standards in your work. I hope you realize we don't need perfection in editing to continue following your channel. I cringed with you when I saw that camera fall off the dock. I fondly remember a starlit night I did my shift at the tiller of a Leuders 32 as we sailed from New Rochelle out to Block Island with the mast light reflecting in the spinnaker until we hit 20 foot swells as we sailed past Block Island and had to switch to the genoa because the spinnaker was about to dip into the seas. I'm eager to see you two under full sail.

    • By now I'm sure you've read replies that go along the lines of. . . "That's a silly question." If you ever vlogged (and created a well edited quality product) and also lived life at the same time, you would know why there's significant delays.

  • Wow didn't realise you were so far behind as that. Still you have had a huge amount to do so its to be expected and I guess when you built those house things you were on a finished boat then and we have seen briefly since, Jade with that huge smile at the wheel and on a lean so definitely sailing! Dogs, they will be a problem over the eastern side of the Pacific. Here in Aus they will have to go into quarantine and be injected as also some of the other countries. Check out "Sailing Nandji" who left from Queensland and had to leave their Whippet behind till all the paperwork and injections could be sorted out before it could be flown across to them just north of Aus. But that might be well into the future yet. Love the snow, don't get it here in South Aus but had it in the island ofTasmania where I grew up. Watched you from the beginning episodes and love your positive spirit. You are both an example to all.

You take one thing that is normally a small part in anyone else's video and make a half dozen episodes out of it, all while making each episode very entertaining. Well done

  • Saw you guys mentioned on another channel regarding your BIG repair and it brought me to check you guys out. That was Friday and I'm now caught up. (I'm quarantined after testing positive for you- know-what. Moderate symptoms lucky for me). I'm aspiring to have my own boat someday so I've followed all the main sailing channels on NOworld for a while now. Nahoa, (our favorite) La Vagabond, Zatara, Okellys, and the list goes on. The best thing about your channel is seeing two people so well matched for each other and work together so well. I know YT videos tend to show the happy-go-lucky side of normal living, but you two obviously go very well together. Life is usually hard but having a partner (this is for both of you) seemingly made for you makes it possible to rebuild a boat and tackle such MASSIVE projects the way you do without killing each other. I hope you two never forget to stop and take the 30,000' view and see how fortunate you are to be "grounded" together the way you are. You guys took on the biggest boat project I've ever seen on any of the sailing channels. Bravo!! I can't believe the level of focus and energy.

    • Hi Dan, if you want to see the mother of all sailing rebuilds have a look at Sailing Yaba being rebuilt from the keel up in Brazil. 70 ft schooner will just about be a new boat by the time they have finished. If you want another good sailing channel "Free Range Sailing" a couple in a 30ft "Clansman" in Aust going all around the coast. Entertaining, instructional and just plain down to earth

Since I have been a loyal watcher, why am I watching a vlog more than 4 months ago of "buying a Christmas Tree" (before Christmas & I'm posting today 25 Apr)??? I do want to watch your vlogs to support both of you! But, I need to be honest, I did not think you were that far behind. And, I must confess, I'm considering to just stop watching. Maybe you can do 2 vlogs a week to catch up to about 2 months behind (bring it up to Feb 2021)!!! Stay in the same season at least! Good Luck and keep up with the hard work!

  • Marinas always exaggerate depth. Remember if you have fixed dock with pilings fender should be horizontal and if you are on a floating dock then fender go vertical. Always tie your boat so it’s floating between pilings and not snugged up to dock becasue of wind conditions get bad the boat will get banged up against either type of dock. You guys did a fantastic job. Now comes sailing skills and docking skills.

    Owen KillmanOwen Killman14 dager siden
    • Fortunately dogs don't take up very much space and they bring a lot of fun and value to us 🙂🐶 It works out great for them too. The "tiny home" alternative lifestyle basically forces us to get outside everyday haha. It's good for us. We do a lot of hikes and exploring and the dogs get to tag along and run free. On a typical day their gps collars track 2-5 miles running. Then there are the security benefits. Our last tiny home was a skoolie and we had a lot of theft/break-ins when we weren't home. After we got Dingo that all stopped. And when Brett travels for work I feel much safer having them with me because I know Dingo would rip someone apart if they came after me 😂😬 true story. Having dogs isn't always easy and it'll definitely be complicated when we start traveling internationally, but for us the pros definitely outweigh the cons. And honestly, even if there end up being more cons, we love them too much now to ever do it differently haha

  • Please don't use the loops on your dock lines to your cleat. You will never get them off under load and if you have to make any adjustments due to tide or winds you would be in trouble or have to cut them. Always use cleat hitches on both the dock and the boat. This is your safety message of the day. Fair winds and Following Seas.

Those armchair sailor's are angry with their own lack of gusto for the life not lived an things left unsaid an done in their own life's. Those types are joy theifs. We ignore an wish them well.
