  1. "Not having a phone number." A way around this problem is a VoIP account, which you can access with any SIM-enabled mobile phone using VoIP software such as Groundwire. Most VoIP providers have the ability to sell numbers for specific countries. So, if you're claiming a home base in the UK, get a UK VoIP phone number and you're right as rain.

  5. Hi Guys.

    I would rather see you wear sunglasses than you get eye damage. It is Your vlog so to hell with other people not liking them.

    Thanks for all the straight answers. I am told I have no Grey / Gray in my life but Black and White is so easy to deal with and like Nick I can be to the point. Damn it saves a lot of time. Like your style Nick.

    Thanks again.

  6. Why wouldn't you have a permanent mobile phone number? Check out Google Fi. Its international. Uses Wifi or several different cellular carriers to connect. Keep you number where ever you go. Cost is minimal per month if you don't use a lot of data. I pay ~30.00 USD per month for 1 Gb data. Most of my data comes via wifi so not a issue. I will keep it when I go cruising. My wife otoh has ATT with unlimited data and she will keep that. But she pays a lot more.
    Love that advice on bottom paint, the heavier the can the better… lots of solids.

  8. Another great video, but one question, a few episodes ago your spinnaker went overboard if i'm right this was the second time and the halyard frayed at the same place). Isn't this something to check every time you set sail?

  10. To fix your no phone # problem, use Google Voice. It will be a US #, but it is completely accessible via the Web, can be forwarded to a real phone, and is free. https://voice.google.com/u/0/signup

  11. Thank you. As a sailing geek, I really enjoy your perspectives. We benefit greatly by learning about the choices and compromises you have made, and how you made them. After all, time, money and space are precious resources, for most of us anyway.

  12. Thank you so much for your vids.  They have had an impact on my wife becoming more comfortable with our own boating adventure!  Although not sailing, living aboard a motor vessel.  Thanks again, really enjoy you both!  Hope our paths cross in the water in the future.

  17. I was a mechanic in the late 80's. Since then always serviced and maintained my own cars. Knowing how they work and all their idiosyncrasies meant when they failed I was in a lot of instances able to fix them at the side of the road. I would imagine with boats this is even more important.

  19. You can get a permanent Skype or Google Voice US phone number while your in US which will work of your data plan where ever you are.
    Google Voice will work thru the Hangouts app on your phone. I use it all the time works great. Hangouts will receive and send SMS. If I remember correctly its free as well.

  21. Thank you for your Q&A, it was really interesting, and you seem to give us true and correct information.
    I have a question: if you had NO limit of budget, you were extremely rich, would you change your boat? If so, which boat would you chose? And how many feet? Sorry for my English…. I’m Italian. Ciao e grazie, Elisa

  30. For a phone line, you can use a SIP app on any Android/Apple device and connect to an online SIP service provider. This will give you an inexpensive and permanent land-based phone number in almost any country in the world, as well as very cheap calling. Only works when in range of an Internet connection. in fact, there is nothing stopping you from signing up to any local (to you) SIP provider and getting a local (to you) phone number – this will be very convenient to talk to any of the locals as long as you want..

  33. What? No ranting? Something must be wrong ( I get great joy from the rants by the way because I do the same thing especially when driving) all I can gather is that it must be due to that Bush beer! I propped IPA would surely bring back the rants.
    As always, informative and entertaining. When your vlogs pop up I always know it will be a worthwhile watch.
    Thanks

  36. Hi from Song of Pogo (still in Annapolis waiting for our Viking life raft to be rectified). We just bought an IPAD Pro 10.5 as a backup for our old and gimpy (1999) Raymarine suite. We're trying GARMIN Mobile with Active Captain on our trip south to the Bahamas this winter. Seems okay so far with a $10 cell plan. We'll see how it works when we get offshore. I really enjoy you two and your adventures…..

  39. Have you considered using a Google Voice number to get around not keeping one number? There are apps for both iOS and Android or you can access it over the web on a computer.

  40. Here's the thing .. I have a question? lol Do you have someone on land that you communicate with that would issue an alert if you did not check in?
    I laughed at the washing cloths question. We have all seen how Nick deals with dirty work cloths – do it naked.
    Thanks for sharing.
