Sail away with Alexander!
Movie Rating: 4 / 5
@Maloy7800 Yes we are anchored in North Palm Beach Florida soaking up the
rays. Cheers Mate
Liked, commented and subscribed! You guys are awesome! Really looking
forward to watching continuing adventures. Hadley Harbor is one of my
favorite anchorages. I see you’re in Annapolis. Are you guys headed to
the Bahamas? Please keep filming! You’ll treasure these videos forever.
Open Ocean `?? lol
Really like your channel. Fantastically honest about your learning
experiences. I think that makes for good viewing. Pleased to hear you got
your dinghy back. I think sailing is learning a thousand wet, often cold
and expensive lessons but if you can learn them you are set for anything
life can throw at you.

Congratulations. Life is a learning curve and you stuck with it.
Double clamp your thru hulls and carry some boat plugs. Hope you have an
epirb. Watch your charts on the Newport approach especially in the fishing
areas. Good place to snag a net.
what crap is this? It is amazing. I cannot figure out why you look like you
are more than five years old.
Very good vid… folks learn so much more from people doing it who are
willing to share stuff learnt the hard way.
Davits!! ..and ALWAYS use jacklines when making a bluewater passage!
The beginning of wisdom!
Why so dramatic your coastal cruising not open ocean at all, You sound like
a cotton wool kid. Why are some Americans so dramatic at everything they do
you might want to look at the live aboard videos on youtube “Daphne” a
wooden sail boat great video series. You carry on way to much an suggest
less drama queen an more fun sailing. =Other than that good luck
Nice summary – mistakes made, lessons learned – well done! Fair winds!
Hey Man!!! Live and learn!!!!
Great post guys… Not many people will knowingly admit to their mistakes
so other can learn. If you get to the Bahamas down on San Salvador Island,
stop by the KiteSurfPlace and say hi.
Great learning experience!!!! Getting ready to cross Atlantic?? Glad
everything came out OK.
Cabin fever after 4 days?? Seriously dont go on a long passage then
Sheesh. Learned something that had never really occurred to me. I have
towed my dingy and was always thinking of it being flipped or suddenly
coming aboard over the stern but never thought about the towing line being
ripped out of the dingy. Now I will be more cautious thanx to to guys.
Please keep doing this. I want to one day do exactly what you did, buy a
boat and sail on the open ocean. I’m glad you show your mistakes so I can
know what not to do. I can’t wait for episode 10.
You lived to tell the tale. Which is good. You tell it, thus warning
others.Which is even better.
I think you are doing a great job, it takes a considerable amount of
courage to take your own potentially lethal mistakes out in the open for
all the world to see. Keep sailing, and thumbs up!
great vids, enjoying the journey. You have a great looking boat, respect
her and she will look after you.
You probably know by now but just incase: Was your dinghy attached with a
bridle between the two side connectors or just by the middle connector? The
middle connector is not for towing. I noticed in an earlier video you had
it attached only to the middle connector. Make up a bridle and towing will
be less hassle. Obviously when travelling between longer distances, stow
Loving the music too, keep it up :)
If you feel “Trapped” after only 4 days on the boat.. GO TO LAND.. you
dont need to be on a Boat..
That’s what adventure is all about .Risking everything to get what needs to
be done , done. You were so pumped up with adrenalin that nothing else
mattered. You saved the dingy and yourselves. You learned not to tow your
dingy in rough water and had some excitement in the process. If you’re
really worried, teach your better half how to “Hove too” and she’ll be able
to stop the boat dead in the water within an arms reach of you when she
sees you fly over board. No Fear ! Now you’re having fun !
thanks for sharing, it’ll keep someone else alive. A great teacher has no
pride in himself, only the wisdom gained. Well done.
Thanks for sharing your learning experience.
