Episode 35 – Shallow Water & A Shady Tie-Off

We start where we left off in Episode 34 and sail through shallow Sherman Lake. A lake in the Sacramento Delta just north of Antioch that is known for its numerous hazards. After that, we go tie up against a bush for the night (yes, a bush) and make omelettes. The omelettes might not sound…

NorCal Westsail Rendezvous 2017!!! (PHOTOS)

It’s more than just a rendezvous. Last year we had the honor of attending the Westsail rendezvous even though our Westsail wasn’t sailing. This past year I have realized that it is more than just a rendezvous to show off your boat. It’s family, friends, relationships that have grown so much. These are people that…

Episode 34 – The Crew Takes 5

J & K reunite after J’s Oregon trip, we sail to Oakland to deliver the kids to their uncle Kurt, Skipper of the Plan B, and then we take a beater of a trip up river to Rio Vista. There, once again, we are reminded that sailboats are nothing but trouble sometimes (even though we…

Why we do the Episode Videos

Why do we make “episode” videos?… I wonder sometimes myself. They are not easy and they do take a lot of time, but when it boils down to it the simplest answer is because we want to share our story. Our story might not be the greatest, but it is unique… and we love it….

What is it about Boats?

I can name a hundred reasons why you should never get into owning a boat, but… (there’s always a but), but for every reason I can name not to buy a boat I can name a hundred more why you should. Why is that?… For something that is a headache, a hassle,  and a liability…

I am a Writer…

One thing I have realized lately is that… I am a writer. Through and through I am a born writer. I have written novels, essays, poems, journal articles, blog posts, and so forth. I have realized that it is when I have stopped writing that I feel something is completely off with me… something in…

Episode 32 – I’m A BEAST!

We spend a day recovering from the events of Episode 31 and then tie up some loose ends on Rad Mode before enjoying a San Francisco day sail on SV Caradon with Captain Heather! Just a side note about the voice-overs…I stayed up drinking by myself until about 2am and thought about redoing them all…

Episode 31 – Fake It ‘Til You Become It

We get invited to be rail meat aboard the SV Seastar for a Friday night beer can race at Berkeley Yacht Club and then sail to San Francisco the next morning for J’s 40th Birthday Party, China Town Karaoke awesomeness! Living this life is hard, but somebody has to do it. 😉 The events filmed…

Episode 30 – Hey Daddy O, How Do I Look?

We Chase the Story and sail to Berkeley Yacht Club (spotting a whale in the process) where we clean up for an event with Tasha Hacker from SV Cheeky Monkey at the OCSC Sailing School. A good time was had by all when we stayed late and partied it up after the event and we…

Episode 29 – Where the Magic Happens

Finally! We have a run of good weather, meet up with Captain Leasure for vegan burgers on his most epic Westsail 32 Tortuga, watch a new tall ship (Matthew Turner) get “splashed”, introduce you to more of the kids, and you get to see where J gets it when his mommy makes her Youtube debut.
