  5. @3.43 "Squeezed out like a watermelon seed!" Brain grabbing simile by Dan to describe Uma scooting along between two weather systems. I love it!

  6. How do you manage power/can you share your consumption? Looks fairly foggy in at least first few days. I know you have a massive battery bank, but am curious how it all played out. Assume Cape Horn is helping keep draw down. You don’t have a tow generator right?

  7. Those underwater lights can cause a boat to sink.

  9. Are you guys buds with Maddie and Herbie on Rigging Doctor? They made this same passage to the Azores from further South than where you started. He used sextant and charts to navigate. Really interesting. Your trip is too, by the way. At least fairly good going.

  10. Dan; I have a bunch of questions; I hope you don't mind. I apologize if you have answered these previously but I may have missed an episode. First would you go into your SATCOM device and how it works/capabilities; I believe you called it an Iridium. Does the manufacturer sponsor your equipment and monthly charges or are you having to pay for them your selves? When you get to Europe will you be sailing in the cold Northern areas or heading South to the Med? How long will you remain in Europe and will you take the Southern Route coming home. For all I know that may be the only route given the winds. Loved the under water lights; are they through hull or attached? How are the batteries holding up given all the fog? Do you have an alternate method of charging the battery; wind or towed generator? Thanks for your answers; Larry

  11. I really like the way you keep the old map up to date.
    If all fail you have some data where you came from.
    But also you need a sextant and a good clock to be able to keep track the old fashion way.

  19. On a 8 day passage from NZ to Fiji we started in 25 knots of breeze and had up to 35 knots gusting 50 all pretty much from our starboard quarter ecept the 1st couple of days when it was from the SW and I slept most of the time off watch and it was so comfortable. We had 4hrs on and 8hrs off (3 of us). I had the dawn watch from 2 – 6am which I loved. I think the constant quite boisterous motion is what kept me tired even though I never felt sea sick and eat like a horse. The sleeping also helped pass the time 😁👍

  36. Once again this is not sailing… This is an automated power boating with sails. What would they do if lightning fried their electronics… What are those dark cloud's descending on us, we have no light and can't see what do we do? They would be hitting that epurb in 5 mins lol. Also what happens if all those loose items go flying around, what about all those sharp edges that your ribs are going to get cracked on? That's all it takes, this is fake… To bad – it is. Sailing is nothing like this unless your setting up props with perfect lighting and avoiding wind over 25 knots. Some places cancel a race if its blowing less than that lol. Do not take these people advice or you could loose you life, do not go bluewater sailing till you have properly learned storm tactics for your boat. Practice those storm tactics in conditions your comfortable with, then get into deeper water. Also a lot of people getting robed, kidnap, and murdered in 3rd world countries, you are a big dollar sign! They are hungry/poor/jealous/etc while your in la la land lol. It's barely safe to coast 600 miles off shore in some countries! You have to make a b-line (a straight line) into the Marina from there. Anyway they would not even no how to get back to shore without a gps… Read the horror stories of people stranded out there. Many want set foot in a swimming pool after lol. Sailing in the bay is not sailing in the ocean, you can not just go for it and learn out there, it's to late to practice sail changes, that's ignorant thinking. Just my thoughts…

    (Back in the day some sailboaters would drag a metal cable for the lightning strike and then a debate came along should we direct the strike or avoid it all together… and then everyone got confused lol)

  39. I have always wondered when doing a crossing how often do you update the clocks? As you travel east or west the true time changes. enjoy your videos.
