A Trip to Crater Island. + boat repairs & fiberglassing of course

28. sep.. 2020

#269 It's certainly feeling like we're never gonna leave Ponta Delgada. This time though it's because of the mounting pile of tasks, dodgy ovens and fibreglass repairs. La Vaga is looking more like a construction barge than home right now. As much as we want a functioning kitchen, we're really itching to get out on the water again. Especially because a submerged crater is just sitting there, come on let's goooooooo.
And we have a late change to the squad: Bri is leaving us, fair winds! But Andre returns, back on the boat for our Azores adventures. Welcome back, and let's hit the water.

  • 7 minutes and 57 seconds.. you've been on that catamaran for a while and if you find one weak spot you better check them all that's a hydraulic piston.... And in my humble and objective opinion it's a manufacturer's defect.. in that area if it was not supposed to be stepped on it should have been covered or labels... Hydraulic piston.. starboard side. New construction.. in my humble opinion manufacturer defect.

  • Great video, it's cool to try new things, just as a heads up by the look of it, you were not using epoxy when fibreglassing you were using polyester resin(as you added a small amount of catalyst/hardener, epoxy is usually a high ratio like 5:1 or 2:1). Both are fine, polyester is cheaper and fine for a fibreglass boat, but epoxy will work in more situations/with more materials. The black goo was probably epoxy, its way stronger!

  • Right at the end I flashed back to the cross Atlantic crossing with Riley on his back with his neck fucked up and I was suddenly scared and panicked. It's happened before but not for a long time. I'm glad they're all doing well and send my best. It's strange since I don't really know them, but I feel such love for their family.

Not gonna lie when I found out you guys were going to the Azore I was so jealous I almost didn't even want to watch the videos! But the videos were awesome and just as I expected I want to go back! I have been to the Azores a few times and can not wait to go back. I am from Massachusetts the hustle and bustle of life is really real here and I describe Azores as the "land of lost time". I am so happy you guys are enjoying the beauty of the the islands and the fooood (ice cream) So if you are still on Sao Miguel and you see this message I have a little recommendation for food in the Capelas there is a little Cafe called Café immigrant I believe.. Their steak and fish plates are delicious and priced for the locals! Enjoy guys and stay safe!

  • I know you may not have any control over it, but I am so sick of how commercials have become so much a part of youtube videos. I mean one of the things I loved about your videos in the beginning was how they would take me away and allow me to escape for 15 minutes in to your beautiful world and your creative way you share it. My wife used to comment how I would be sitting there with headphones on watching my ipad while she was watching tv with this great big smile on my face. She became curious and this is how she became interested in what you guys were doing! Ha Ha ! Loved the work on the boat bit as I enjoy learning about anything to do with boat maintenance. The beauty of the location was great but was constantly interrupted by commercials so it really lost something in that. Just my two cents as a patreon.

  • What was your cinematography background before you began this voyage 6 years ago? How many hours to produce a single posting? Does having your life on film make you more conscious of the importance of happiness? My brother and I though 3000 miles apart love the travels you bring to us as we both share the joy of being on the water. I am 68 and he is 72..we both boat mostly inland but he in San Francisco and I the ICW of the east coast...thank you for your sharing...both of us have grandbabies about a year old..him by his sons and me by my girlfriend's sons....life is good. Thanks again

They were so full of life and happiness I really wanted to connect with them and they had there 2 beautiful wild children with them, now back in the UK watching this and realised it's them and I have been watching there NOworld vids for over a year now. Wish i had connected with them at the time! Me and my partner have a dream of buying a yacht and sailing the world! I know one day we will meet. Safe journey to you guys, hopefully see you soon! 💕
