  1. please understand that at this time sending even a dollar would be hard but I will find a way to change this in the future. I am taking all you have in and learning a great deal. A quick question: have you had to do a "noad" report yet?

  2. With today's weather forecasts you should never need to be in a hurricane, in the Caribbean you just go South then return when it's gone through. I was in two, never again. It's not worth risking your boat for a anchor.

  3. What is drone name?

  4. Anything heavy like that hurricane anchor you stowed should be strapped down or it will become a 99lb missile if you are ever laid flat in a squall or worse. I do wonder where if anywhere you get your advice. As a longtime sailor and boat owner I would advise being careful who you take it from. Read some of Cap'n Fatty Goodlanders books, he has been around and his books are great advice, all on Amazon.

  5. Just an observation to consider when stowing that hurricane anchor. You'll probably be needing it in a hurry when you've lost your other anchor and you're drifting. Or you'll need it in shitty weather when it wont be too fun assembling it and carrying it all the way to the front of the boat. I don't know your boat too well but look and see if you can't stow it somewhere ready assembled and closer at hand. Just my 2 cents. Keep living the dream.

  6. After many years of analyzing practical anchor tests there are only a handful of anchors that I would ever trust my boat to. The main one is the Ultra Anchor, so I was very happy to see that was what you unwrapped. Its only drawback is the cost due to the fact that it only comes in stainless. After that is the Mantus, then the Rocna. But I would not rely on the Spade. It looks so similar to the Ultra, but I have seen it fail to set too many times. Fortress-style anchors, including the original branded aluminum Fortress, are so bad at re-setting themselves I am continually amazed that anyone still uses them. Don't even get me started about the CQR, thank goodness you got rid of that. 

    Highly recommend you think about getting rid of the Spade and simply upgrading to a larger Ultra Anchor as your main, if you want to be able to handle a hurricane at anchor. The inventor of the Rocna (Peter Smith), an engineer and very experienced sailboat owner, wrote a detailed article explaining why tandem or dual anchoring is not a viable solution to extreme weather conditions. You need to be able to rely on your main anchor, period, and with an appropriately sized Ultra you can do that. With maybe an equally sized backup like a broken-down Mantus in case you are ever forced to cut your main anchor loose. In any case, best of luck and enjoy your boat.

  7. You should do a dry run on getting the Anchor out on a windy day in the bay, but not for using it but just to see what a pain it is to get out and hooked up for use. Just a thought

  8. I wonder how many Anchors are dropped at the docks. Hum makes you want to go get a magnet lol.

  9. I would get a couple of spare fortress anchors. You will want to anchor bahamian style when you get down to the islands. The fortress anchors are nice because they come apart for storage and have a soft storage case. You can get much bigger anchors since they store so compactly and are perfect for the muddy bottoms in the Caribbean.

  10. Did you make it through the hurricane?

  11. Was Casey Neistat an inspiration for your video editing? Aside from no drone shots, the accelerated video with trendy music track… feels a lot like his style. Not easy to compose a video, so kudos on the work. 🙂

  12. Pretty, shiny anchor! Why?? Why the mirror finish? You paid extra for someone to hand polish that, and a year from now, it will be scuffed up and dull. :/

    Reply
  13. Going to need quite a few beers on the other side of the Boat to balance things out with that anchor on board

    Reply
  14. Really? You bought an anchor because it fits on your bow roller and you bought SS because it's shiny…How dumb can you get? I hope you will be happy with your purchase when it drags at 3am in a crowded anchorage? or when you can't sleep because you have no faith in it?

  15. You're making progress, bit by bit, well done! Whats the name of the song playing at the end?

    Reply
  16. Manual windlass huh? I'll be waiting for the upgrade to electric video. Sweet stainless anchor tho!

    Reply
  17. Great video, verry informativ. But who was the inspiration to the "Thor" ancher?

    Reply
  18. How much do you have to worry about weight and balance?

    Reply
  19. Hey guys what's that song that was used for the montage of storing the anchor?

    Reply
  20. the back up anchor is over the top. anchoring is a system where the anchor and chain play together. the chain also weights (a lot) it doesnt work like the anchor but it is a vital piece in absorbing the up and down movement of the boat in a swell and keeping the anchor performing as it should. there are rules of thumb when it comes to anchoring: use minimum 4 times the depth of water if using only chain, or minimum 6 times depth if using chain and warp. (you should know this by now), there is another way of looking at this: know your draft and establish a minimum depth at which you would feel comfortable in anchoring. from this info decide on the amount of chain you want to have on board. everything weights, thus, opposes movement either sailing or motoring (less fuel efficiency). when are going to need that second anchor? when the weather is shitty right? yeah, so taking it out of storage with the boat rolling, having to assembly it and launch will be dangerous. im talking about someone getting really hurt on board. i can also see that anchor flying across the cabin in a storm/knockout, again VERY dangerous. im sure you see the pragmatic pov that i am aiming for in my comment.

  21. Hey new subscriber and love the video's, could you possibly link or name the songs you use in the video's, you have cool taste in music!

  22. Hi      I hope  you never get caught out in a hurricane ….because no matter how big or heavy the anchor is …you will lose the boat ……  …Mike …

  24. I must say I have never been sailing although I do live in Florida right off the coast. I found myself watching all your videos [[ just planned on watching one ]]. The reason? You guys [hate using slang] but you two 'keep it real'. I love that you show " Hey it's work, it's hot as hell and today we had to …etc ' Other videos by other people kinda 'hollywood' it if that makes sense. You show it's a passion//enjoying whilst showing 'hey there is things that are crappy at times". So with that being said loved watching two people being humble, showing work, and showing success. So from Tampa, FL just wanted to say cheers. P.S I've never went fishing in the ocean so if you ever go out once to do it, I'd live to go….just once…..I prefer land. Good job you two and I look forward to more. =)

  25. These videos keep showing up at the top of my home page, there is no sailing, it is ridiculous. I do not understand the support or the views, I agree with most of the haters in the comments, it"s just phone filming on a Rassy at a dock. An anchor for holding in a hurricane, really? I lived in Key West, and through a hurricane, I wouldn't bet on an anchor keeping myself, crew or boat safe. What knowledge could anyone gain from any of this. Does anyone know how to remove a future videos from a home page? That would be helpful

  32. a snubber 🙂 she's right I would never have guessed what it is. Hope you share more blow boat terms that someone landlocked in the heartland would never guess.

  36. What an awesome channel. Watched a couple of videos and I was hooked, had to watch all of them. Thanks for giving us a look into your lives! Can't wait to see your adventures.

  37. That's a whole lot of anchor for your size yacht. You are probably going to want all that storage space back that is getting used up by the storm anchor.

    Reply
  38. Also a 100# anchor needs to be secured below deck, in the event of a good knockdown, it would go flying with a force of over 10,000#

    Reply
  39. 5/16" chain on a 100# anchor? That chain will not take as much load as you need to take in a hurricane. You should be in the 3/8" chain. With 5/16" you would be on a 50# anchor class.

  40. Looking forward to the sailing video's!

  41. Let us know in the future if this anchor works as advertised…

  42. Binge watched the entire series to date.

    Landlocked and didn’t want to leave the mountains… well ever.

    I dive whenever I am in Hawaii and always think to myself “move, live, be”.

    You two are fantastic and thanks for sharing your move to the sea life!

  43. What was that last 9 seconds? 35 + 39 + ? = 101 + 5 = 106. My math tells me 35 + 39 = 74, not 101; Where did the "?" – 27 come from, and what is the "misc" 5? Is this the kind of "total disclosure" we get from Congress? Just funning, you do what you have to do, and keep doing it, it's working.
