Way back in 2015 we were releasing 2 episodes a month….The time between when we filmed and released them was over a year! We made the decision to work our asses off and release 1 episode every week until we got “caught up”… Well, THE TIME HAS COME!!! Its taken 3 years but here we are, currently editing footage that we shot within the last month. This means we have time to be WAY more creative, switch things up and take on new challenges!! So, every so often a Friday can now be something like this! A Live Q and A, Bonus Video, 360 video, Slow TV Episode, Boat Work, etc…The possibilities are endless! View More
Eco-friendly antifouling Q&A with Capt. Brian and Senor Brady. We sit down and discuss the results of our eco-friendly antifouling experiment. Brian starts off with a little recap of what we did during our haul out in Grenada, and why we made the decision to try and find a paint that did not rely on traditional antifouling agents. We show the results of Delos sitting at 3 weeks, 5 weeks, and 7 weeks without moving, and compare those results to boats around us with hard copper, ablative copper, homemade copper-epoxy, and copper coat. Finally we scrub the bottom clean and start sailing regularly again and show how the effects of water over the hull make a difference in the growth on Delos’s hull. This was a really interesting video to research and put together, we hope you learned as much as we did!

How do you earn money from sailing videos? How has this changed over time with the new trends in Social Media and YouTube vs. Broadcast TV? Do you have any tips for those just starting out? I get a chance to sit down and chat with Paul and Sheryl Shard from Distant Shores, who were one of the first to make Sailing Lifestyle Videos. They answer these questions and many more as we discuss how technology enables us to live a digital nomadic lifestyle while sailing, and the pro’s and con’s of the transition from broadcast TV to YouTube and social media.
