5 Reasons not to buy a boat! – Sailing Q&A 23

5 Reasons not to buy a boat! – Sailing Q&A 23

Boats go wrong all the time: they kill relationships, are never clean, change the way you look, and eat money!

There are lots of videos telling you to buy a boat, but SHOULD you? Sometimes boat life is not what it’s cracked up to be. We know cruisers who liked the idea of the dream, but were brought down to earth by the reality of living aboard 24/7.

In this frank discussion, we let you in on the secret hell of owning a boat, sometimes alluded to but seldom covered in depth by most sailing channels. Even if it’s only a weekend boat, or for spending a few months on a year, boats will gnaw away at your patience.

Would we do it again? OF COURSE! ??

A Simple Trick to Help You Moor Your Boat | ? Sailing Britaly ?

A Simple Trick to Help You Moor Your Boat | ? Sailing Britaly ?

Here we show you how we use a $3 pool noodle to make mooring our boat really easy! This simple trick makes docking our boat a piece of cake… ? SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Subscribe?

How to dock a boat? This is the kind of question that is virtually impossible to answer, as there are a million variables and no two berths will be the same. Even if you ARE coming to dock in the same berth, different weather conditions may call for a completely different approach to mooring on different days… This simple trick is just one more small piece of knowledge that can commit to memory and even if it’s not relevent to you right now, may help you easily and safely moor your boat at some point in the future.

? Sailing Britaly ? brings you the sailing shenanigans of Chris (British) and Rossella (Italian), as we sail our 30ft sloop. We make sailing vlogs of our cruising adventures and share any tips and tricks we can along the way. After all, sailors are one big family!

No, Becky hasn’t made it to the Miami river yet
No, we haven’t found Rossy yet
Yes, Sandra keeps scarring newbies every weekend
No Harolds were harmed during the making of this video .. ours obviously takes care of that on his own pretty well

Enjoy !!!

Some people like doing it, others not so much, but being able to sail a yacht on your own is an important skill to have. This is a short film that we shot at the end of the year, on a gloomy day, that gives you some idea of the way we go about it.

Please let us know what you think below and if you have any observations or hints and tips of your own we would love to hear them.
