  1. great video Aries are great wind vanes and hold course wind wise which on
    long passages is good, the designer apparently said nothing was immune to
    damage from the sea but he had tried . ( or something like that )

  2. Fascinating video. But the thing that always bothers me about these videos
    is the wind sound distortion. Is there a proper fix for that depending on
    the kind of video camera you are using?

  3. I salute you sir, that would have been the 24 days i never slept story.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Disappointed. 🙁 Title says, “from BC to Hawaii” but when the video starts
    you’re already 250 miles of the California coast. I live on Vancouver
    Island, been to Port Renfrew many times and was looking forward to seeing
    familiar sights. along with all the rest of your trip.

  5. With the servo arm gone and the electric auto pilot not functional, use a
    couple of blocks to cross the jib sheets to the tiller. Provides self
    steering. That’s why tillers are good on small boats like yours. Other than
    a few mine have all been larger and had wheel steering. Fortunately I’m
    pretty crafty and have been able to fix whatever broke. 

  6. Your video starts on the 4th day off CA…how was the trip down the WA and
    OR coast? How far off shore did you sail down the coast?

  7. I’ve watched this video five times over the last year. Love the music, the
    sound of your voice, and the way you worked your way through the problem.
    It all adds up to a great description of the pace of a voyage. Thank you.

  8. A trip I took many times in the late 70’s early 80’s. I worked for a group
    that delivered sailboats. They had a side of the business that would
    deliver boats to Hawaii from North America. The owners would fly over and
    meet their craft and sail around the islands. Most often we would then
    return it to anywhere from Juneau to San Diego.

  9. Met Kevin, tall younger guy, retired govt employee from BC, while he was
    weathering, sheltered in Winchester Bay Oregon on way to Hawaii last year.
    Wondered how he managed with his solo journey aboard his 34 double ender?
    Said if he was enjoying the trip, around the world was a possibility..
    Thanks for the vid. May you be blessed with great sailing.

  10. I know nothing about sailing. So how do you keep from hitting things at
    night? Or when you’re sleeping?

  11. I appreciate your camera work. All shots were focused and steady. Many You
    tube videos are unpleasant to watch due to excessive camera movement.
