10 YEARS AT SEA
followtheboat


Published on Dec 8, 2016
What's it like to live on the ocean? We celebrate ten years at sea and we reflect on what it means to be a liveaboard. The changes, the fears and anxiety, the highs, the lows. For anyone out there thinking about moving to a life on the ocean waves, this is essential viewing!

We offer some great drone footage of the Maiden Lake in Langkawi before coming across a regatta as we make our way to a quiet little anchorage. There we get a new neighbour who decides to anchor right next to us. We mean RIGHT next to us! Will we hit him?

We head on to Telaga where we check out and then look back on what we've learnt over the last ten years.

There's loads of information in this episode about becoming a liveaboard. If you like what we do and appreciate the time we put into our videos, we would be very grateful if you'd consider supporting us, either through Patreon as a monthly supporter, or through our Rum Fund if you want to offer a one-off contribution. It all goes towards putting our videos together and bringing you weekly entertainment.

Maine Maritime tug Pentagoet does docking drills
FL92002


Published on Dec 10, 2016
We are on the waterfront in Castine, Maine, where we see Maine Maritime Academy tugboat Pentagoet as she does some docking maneuvers. Students are on board, who are all in the "Ship Handling" class, and as part of class, they learn to dock the tug. The Pentagoet was built in the 70's, if I am not mistaken, and was originally names the Jekyll Island and initially was a tug and ocean survey vessel. She is powered by a pair of Caterpillar C18's. Enjoy the view as the tug makes light work in the harbor. If you have any questions about the video, feel free to message me. Comments are welcome. The video was taken on December 5th, 2016,

THE PATH TO GETTING HEALTHY
Wicked Salty Wes


Published on Dec 9, 2016
I think I am on the right track to getting healthy. It's all about addressing problems as soon as they arise rather than pushing things off to make complications worse, that can be said with everything. It can be frustrating working all the time trying to get doctors appointments in line with work schedules, the worst! But health is important and I'm on top of it.

No Autopilot? No Problem. (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 67
Sailing La Vagabonde


Published on Dec 12, 2016
I must say, the beginning of our 236nm sail from Niue to Vava’u - Tonga was a bit of a downer, considering the auto pilot had once again stopped working and this meant we would be hand steering for 2 days. Any old salt would have probably just stayed in Niue until it was fixed, but us kids decided to keep going and sort it out when we got to Tonga. We’d heard nothing but good things about the place from fellow sailors and we were super keen on exploring a new destination. So maybe being a bit impatient, off we went. Join us as we hand steer the whole way hahaha. Stay tuned… ps CONGRATS to our patrons Kirk and Sean, we hope you can come aboard sometime real soon. Also don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list for the Big Splash Party in France next year, for anyone who would like to celebrate the exciting event with us! (the link is just below). Love Elay and Riley xo

This one is a bit different...................

New LED lighting illuminates Niagara Falls
RightInNiagara


Published on Dec 13, 2016
On Dec. 1, 2016, the Falls at Niagara were illuminated for the first time by a completely new lighting system. A 100-panel array of LED lamps, costing apparently some $3 million (in US $). was installed on the Canadian side of the Niagara River at the same location where the previous lighting bank had been. The new LED panels have replaced the previous line up of 21 30 in. diameter Xenon spotlights. On Dec. 8th I came to see the new lighting for the first time, and can say that the view of the Falls is crisper, with more intensity, depth and glow, than it was previously. The new lights do a better job of cutting through the mist.
