all right show us your marvelous creation What have you come up with here for scraping the hull
Riley: “in through the mouth, out through the nose” very simple I hope I don’t get Carbon Dioxide Poisoning And then Riley had to go up the mast and install a new wind speed indicator because the spinnaker halyard actually snapped snapped that off, so we had to do that and and then we had some people ride in from Utah and Texas and they wanted to come sailing with us in the BBI’s so we island hopped with them there are really lovely people and we had a Really good time and then riley and I did some more exploring before heading over to St. Martin I just got the best yawn on camera So what happened with [this] boat? Well this guy here with a kennel hanging off the side of his boat Just came over and asked us to help help him out a bit we um As the wind changed Direction last night we swing around and [found] his anchor a little bit Then this morning. He went to tighten up on it with his windlass and when he started the engine he caught his The painter for his mates dinging the rope that ties to the boat so now he’s got that caught in his prop as well So he just came over and asked us for a little bit of help, so That’ll be our job for this afternoon when the sun is at it’s peak. Yeah, it’s warm enough. I have a cute little red healer. Which I want Okay, I kid you not but that were just re-setting our mates anchor the dog house just floated into the mangroves and disappeared so uh I was going after these Snapper [or] there was a huge broker, but then there’s a little school of snapper And I went after them and one of them. Hid behind a rock I went down There was big bertha means a lot a lot from me under a little lips it good job Why he’s got like mop heads hanging from his rigging? I’ve seen that before the mop heads.

Well. I don’t know unless rats fall from the sky. I don’t see how that’s my stop. No. No. They like climbing the mast there’s a shipwreck over here called Vagabond, so Rylie just jumped in the water and tired us off To the rack that was meant to be [a] mooring boy, but it wasn’t um What do you think excited? I saw a little bit of it? It’s quite big. There’s not great amounts of fish around, but yeah, I’m pretty excited Really lost that one will coming [in] and I saw on the map [Vagabond] [where] we come from [ah] Cape Verde But um we’re not too sure [if] it’s good luck or bad luck to be doing this yep, I guess we’ll see Alright, I’m sorry about the airplane noises, we are in Simpson Bay and its very loud That’s [thing] that I’m not those those homes my kitchen I feel his footsteps and I hear him breath [with] conviction Baby [asleep] on a floor.

  1. I'm 9 episodes in and obsessed with this journey. You are living my dream.. and you two seem like the most amazing people.. must dash ..plenty of episodes left to watch.

  2. I have always wanted to sail, I feel more at home on the water than on land. unfortunately my wife likes the glories of being and land/home owner (sacrifices). I can occasionally get her out on he boat to travel to local springs in the st. johns river in Florida, USA. That is about as close to living on the water I can get her, however she is interested in retiring that way. I personally spend a lot of time on the water fishing tournaments. I love your videos, kinda use them to live bi-curiously, and gather living info. I do have a question for you or anyone else who can answer. Whats your protocol for dealing with customs and immigration for moving from country to country? Do you just need a passport, or do you have to contact local authorities? Just trying to figure out how all that works.

  3. I've been on YouTube for 10 years and I've only just come across you guys. I. AM. HOOKED. New life goal: Buy and sailing boat. Sail around the UK waters. Then when confident. Sale to the Caribbean. This IS going to happen.

  4. The mopheads on the rigging silence the rope noise when they start vibrating..they put a similiar "mop" type piece on box strings to silence them for hunting.

  5. 6:25 Clipper Stad Amsterdam. I did a Atlantic crossing on her. From las palmas de cran canaria to st Maarten with bonus stops (because we had a very fast crossing) at Montserrat and st Kitts. One of the best experiences in my live. Loved it!
    I wish my health was good enough to do it your way. Love your videos 🙂

  6. She does not have a stitch of makeup on and i would put her up in a Miss Texas Pageant any day. unbelievable

  7. just recently found you guys and am binge watching from episode 1 this is my favorite episode so far because i use to live in Simpsons bay it would have been cool to run into you guys then. hopefully get the chance to meet you someday!!!

  8. Binge watching!!! This channel deserves not just 1M BUT MILLIONS AND MILLIONS! You made me fell in love with the world!!!

  9. I have just started with episode 1 now and am enjoying them so much…but I have seen so many of your vlogs so far and I am just amazed at the adventure you two are experiencing.  Not everyone can do what you have done but at least, they can live through yours and you have done such a wonderful job….I can't begin to express my appreciation of your hard work….now to see Lenny for a few minutes….take care!!!!!

  10. This wouldn’t be nearly as interesting if you guys were ugly, just saying. Like the last comment, great videos.

  11. Wow, you guys have come so far as peeps and producers of media…I've started back at ep1 since I've written all my essays hahaha

  12. I aggree, you are fantastic.
    I enjoy every minute of these videos. And, a video without a lovely bikini girl is not a video.

  13. I found your channel weeks ago. I watched your most recent movies first, now I'm watching the "beginning" and I am shocked how much you have matured into a woman. Riley is a guys guys and you seem so young and naive in the beginning. Fast forward to your most recent movies and you have changed drastically. Not so much as a early 20's tween but have matured into a woman. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
