Imagine taking your house into a harsh environment, shaking it around and dousing it with salt water. How much stuff would break? Then move your house hundreds of miles from the nearest hardware store and we find out just what it takes to maintain an offshore sailboat.
After 1 week of hard labor the projects are coming along nicely, but there is still an endless list of that needs tackling. An upgraded lithium battery bank installed, refrigeration compressor and cold place replaced, and of course the damn toilet decided to back up in the yard and cause a disgusting mess and I'm forced deep into some really shitty work, LITERALLY!!
If you're curious about the LiFePO4 batteries check the links below:
Battle Born (USA) -
Transporter Energy (UK) -
We're also continuing our search for the best eco-friendly bottom paint! The paint we used is not currently available to be sold commercially, however if you want to check it out visit
Hope you enjoyed this episode showing the less glamorous part of what it’s like to won a boat. And also Brian’s summary on how to save some serious money on labour.
Much love from from us! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra

Battery technology is moving so quickly now adays its incredible. State of the art one day is old technology the next day. Its great to finally see these leaps in performance as traditionally going green has somewhat been limited by our battery technology.

I just started watching your videos like last Friday. I’m not nearly caught up! So I started after Sierra came onboard. What a good natured child! Great job parents! There is a common thread in these videos. One of which is how you keep running into such wonderful people. Friends forever in the Bahamas. Now this one. #290? All of these amazing, generous people. Ryan. Wow! Just wow! And Bill is around and he stood in the same space while you pumped out (and gagged) the toilet and then he ran the cans outside! I laughed so hard. People helping you paint. In the heat! I think you pay it forward a lot ! Much appreciation for your mad skills at pretty much all you do! Very impressive. 👍👍

Always great information! Suggestion: take those old sails and have merchandise made, ie. boat duffle bags, totes, etc. Another money making enterprise for you possibly? I've purchased items made from sails and paid a pretty penny. Items made from YOUR sails would probably command some serious $$$ considering your following. Or, use the items for give-aways or auction for charity. I have thoroughly enjoyed all your videos which I found during Covid. Keep sailing and keep filming. All the best, a new fan!

Just a little advice for your next haul out! The sacrificial anodes should not be installed over or on a painted surface! The metal needs to be bare under them for optimum performance! The paint acts like insulation on a wire and prevents current going to the anodes! Also aluminum anodes should be used rather than anodes made from zinc! Happy sailing!
Travailer 5 månader sedan
You guys have a stupid commercial on your sight sorry goodbye!!
P 5 månader sedan
Doesn't zinc actually attract and accelerate scum growth and accumulation? I thought people use sacrificial zinc plates under the waterline (and even connect them as powered electrical anodes) to concentrate the biomass into small easily cleaned/removed sections while minimizing buildup on the rest of the hull? If true then why prefer a zinc-bearing paint? "Biodegradable" is good but encouraging biology to stick onto (and drag) your boat is bad.

I apologize for not reading the comments; but, is there an epoxy coating you can use for the bottom of the boat that is longer lasting? I just found your channel and am ADDICTED! Shortly I'll look up the donation link. Good luck and safe travels!

Hello guys - quick practical question: do you carry onboard the power tools, masks, required for hull maintenance or you borrow from the marina? Thanks btw for the video updates. Good learning material for sailing wannabes like my wife and I.

Hey Pancho, everything we have is carried onboard to repair most things. Sometimes we need to borrow very special tools but people are cool and will usually lend it to us. Fair winds and happy sailing!

Hello from Addis Ababa (via Phuket, Thailand). My wife and I have been bust in the last few months moving from one country to another. I have fallen behind in my Delos videos. It has been great caching up. Keep up the great videos! One non-sail question. How do you get the parts of the boat that are on the metals stands? I imagine you have lots of little squares of unpainted boat when all is said and done. I know I am missing an obvious trade secret, but what could it be?

The seal that goes in from inside the boat where the bow thruster comes in...apparently one Amel Super Maru sank because that seal popped up. The manufacturers fix for this is you drill two holes, one on either side of the seal, then add a screw with washer that holds the seal down in place and prevents it from popping up and letting seawater in. If I had one of those boats, I'd do that fix!

There was a mask I wore when working in a chemistry lab years ago, but i forgot what model but similar design you were wearing. Anyhow, I could not smell petrol-like chemical when working with it in lab. As soon as i took it off O could smell it. I think such mask would work in your situation.

Re 8:56, that's COVID19(from SARS-CoV2), not COVID(gen for common cold besides the rhino virus). Mockingbird Media got into misleading but fearmongering to get people afraid of sound of corona virus although many are harmless to humans. Whatever happened to the flu? 🤔

How did you paint under the stand contact points? Also why are the sail seams not sealed with some sort of adhesive or sealer to give it lateral strength under stress.? Everything you are doing will go such a long way in happy sail times.

Curious, how did they install the new compressor and condenser. Was the part with the vacuum pump and R134 charging done off camera? I know per-charged tech exists just didn't think these units would have that sort of line connections.

Hey an open letter to all the channels I watch (@Sailing La Vagabonde, @Sailing Millennial Falcon, @Expedition Drenched, @Sailing Nahoa, @Sailing Parlay Revival, @Sailing Ruby Rose, @Learning the Lines, @Gone with the Wynns, @Tula's Endless Summer, @SAILING into FREEDOM, @Sailing SV Delos, @Sailing Nandji - Frothlyfe, @Sailing Uma, @The O'Kelly's, @MJ Sailing, @Sailing Zatara, @Sailing Popao - Underwater Ally Adventures) Yep I know there are going to be some haters out there and maybe I should not include other channel names in this letter but here goes. As people that are probably making money (some more than others granted) out of the environment and locations you visit AND quite a few of you now have young ones (or on the way) and should be thinking about the planet you are leaving behind for your family. Could you (as a combine group of SEmost Channels) get some sort of movement going to help save the ocean (and indirectly then the planet). In your years of travel you must have seen the negative effects, whatever they may be (plastic, coral bleaching, lower fish stocks, changing weather patterns etc). Just throwing it out there for discussion. Just think if every sailing channel could rally their audiences into one combined voice how powerful (and global) that could be.

@9:30. you should be running organic vapor cartridges for your respirator. Actually keeps you safe, and handles smells too. Would probably be the right choice for painting the hull as well. Stay safe!

get some "plumbers aid" from the plumbing shop, if anything smells really disgusting , you wipe some under your nose and all you can smell is eucalyptis, even to the point where you start to dry reach because it smells so bad, you cannot smell anything else makes a huge difference, and it is light (Just a little tube) and very very handy, makes jobs like that so much easier
