If you like BOAT WORK this video is for you :). We haul Delos out of the water for some well needed maintenance! Brian dives head first into what feels like a million projects... Sanding, painting, patching blisters in the keel, fixing a corroded through hull, servicing the prop and bow thruster just to mention a few.
I’ve always admired Brian’s incredible work ethic and the way he can pretty much fix anything AKA “McGyver” :) haha! Hope you enjoyed seeing this other side of what its like to live on a sailboat full time. Many HUGS! Kazza, Brian and little Sierra
PS. A huge thanks to Ryan for being such a superman and to Jeff and Camron for making us feel so at home :)

When you haul out, does the boatyard supply the boat jacks?? Or do you have to buy them and lug them around??

I wonder if the bottom you took off would work fine on a faster boat? Would the 12-15 knots a performance cat can hit fairly often be enough to keep the soft growth scrubbed clean? The idea seems to work for powerboats that go hoonin every time they move, but I can't seem to find a reliable lower speed limit. Apparently it's somewhere above Delos' 6-8 knots... or was it just the long stretches you spent not moving this season and a fear you might be repeating that, and maybe in colder waters that lead to the decision to try something else?

If you are using a dual battery system, I recommend installing True Smart Battery Isolators to manage your system. True SBI automatically charges and switches the charging based on voltage reading. It has a 3-year lifespan, waterproof and vibration proof. See more details at or for a single item.

Even with you doing a shit ton of work - what was the cost of this "biannual" haul out? Rough numbers would be fine.......Let us know and sorry if it has been asked. And for get about the freebees you get......what would this typical haul out cost in a foreign country for the average sailor off the seas...and what would that cost here in the US - without the free labour......?

USA..just started watching your show couple of week ago..very intriguing...but notice one thing is music (non stop )..even when you narrating, or sailing or walking on beach..all different kind of music..can be too much on ears...I suppose..I would rather hear natural, existing I can feel I am really there...your excessive music is really spoiling my joy of watching your beautiful show..hope you understand????

Great Video! Small suggestion: next time your are out, see if you can borrow a sand (soda) blaster to clean underwater metals. You can also buy an inexpensive one and keep it on board. The time savings is amazing and when done everything looks like new!

Sailing and Such stunning scenery. I enjoy this a lot. Reminds me of my trips where I take the good music like the Guns N Roses, Imagine Draongs or the Delta Parole and then enjoy the powerful feeling of the sea. ¡vamos!

You're so safety conscious capital. Little nugget is in great hands. I backtracked on the videos and found out it's an amel. Great choice. I'll kick you some cash to keep you going. I was born in the Azores. Terciera as it is. Thanks for that video. Brought back a slew of memories.

Mates helping out is what its all about! We bought a 60ft steel yacht in March and have been refitting it so we can head out yonder. We have zero sailing experience but have had so many mates come down to the yard over the past 4 months on the weekends to help out! A helping hand is priceless, even if its a simple thing like dropping by for a chat at lunch! Cannot wait to get on the water and start giving back!

Hi Brian Its great to see a sailing site that shows that the real world is more than T & A! As a builder who has seen everything over thirty years I found it disconcerting to see an underwater opening on Delos being patched with sticky-poo joining to a pipe of unknown material and condition. The basic rule is "keep the mast up and the water out." That means that every hole that is underwater (including when rail down) must have a properly installed thru hull plus interior backing plate and be capable of being closed with a seacock that is threaded directly on the thru hull. No red brass fittings anywhere underwater. No non-reinforced plastic waterline hose in the system below the water. No dis-similar metals in close proximity (stainless ball valves in bronze or brass housings with brass nipples threaded in and closed by rusty steel handles.) I don't see how the repair job you show meets those minimal standards. Wouldn't be the first time I've seen similar, even on multi-million dollar superyachts...... ps: Are you familiar with details of the Amel that sank at anchor in Granada while un-attended about ten years ago? A failure involving the bow thruster as I recall. I believe there was a serious lawsuit around it? Worth looking into the history for any preventive maintenance it implies.

I was curious about your haulout in Grenada and just finished watching the videos. I couldn't help but feel sad for Brady and Blue not being on Delos for the last year. Sad because they both saw Delos as "home" and even though they've moved on in their lives, I'm sure they have a lot of nostalgia for those shared experiences with you and Karin. If it was me, I would miss the ocean, too.

You can rinse the gear case of the bow thruster in mineral spirits if needed during fluid changes per Amel's advice. I have worked on several super maramu and I can attest to their foward engineering, with a couple of WTF's to boot 😜. We were happy to see you all at Cobb's marina in Norfolk Virginia for a little while. The stern of your vessel certainly tells stories of the sea! Happy sailing

The idea of a cast-iron keel on a boat in the ocean seems wrong-headed, or am I crazy?
operator0 6 månader sedan
@John Robbins Sounds like that Oyster has a floating ground problem. Sounds like those owners ought to do some maintenance.
John Robbins
John Robbins 6 månader sedan
Cast iron keel ,stainless bolts ,alloy sail drive ,bronze prop ,stainless rudder stock , is not quality boat building You could probably jump start the motor from the electrolytic action going on here As for oyster ,there's a you tube channel out there of a shaft anode visibly fissing away
operator0 6 månader sedan
@John Robbins Amel is certainly not a "cheap and nasty" boat builder. Their reputation for building high quality boats that are built like tanks and can take you around the world is right up there with manufacturers like Oyster and Halberg Rassy. Certainly much better quality than any of the plastic fantastics you see out there.
John Robbins

No you're not crazy Jack it should be bronze bolts set into a lead keel But that's the way a lot of production boat manufacturers do it cheap and nasty

Brian, I have just started selling microSURE and it might work wonders for environmentally friendly boat hull protection. Sure it kills viruses too but I think it is going to change the sailing/cruising world. It's not that expensive either, $200/gallon. Contact me and I can get you some...John FYI: I've been watching you for 7 years and congrats on the 'new' baby.
