Good job!! Enjoyed your calm demeanor. Smart thinking with the lashing, but that's why I always have epoxy and various types of fiberglass on board. Quick scuff, wipe with acetone, quick layup, day later, good as new ; )

Patrick, just watched your video. Great job on documenting your journey. My son and I costal sail out of Marina Del Rey, Ca. It's the best. We charter in the 27' to 32' range. Take care. Dusty.

How difficult was it to handle a 35' boat singlehanded, and what areas did it seem like it was pushing it on one man to be able to handle things? With your experience what size boat do you think would be most ideal to sail single handed? I was hoping to get a sailboat soon.

I know this video is a few years old, and too many comments to see if anyone has already posted this suggestion. Do a search on YT for "Sheet to tiller autopilot". It's a good alternative for steerage in this exact circumstance.
Hove to, or Heave to is a good tactic if the sea conditions are good. But in ruff sea's I wouldn't recommend it. A beam over wave could easily capsize a small vessel. Learn to use the "Sheet to Tiller" method for just these kind of situations.
Also there are ways to do "Sheet to Wheel" if your sailboat doesn't have a tiller.
Good video!
Thumbs up!

You're smart to not have taken some female with you. Most are nothing but headaches as soon as the first week. Nice video.

Thoroughly enjoyed your video, and the music perfectly appropriate.  Own an Ericson 38 and preparing for first ocean voyage, to Cal from Puget Sound, and you provide excellent information.  Thank you!

Автор Jake Jones ( назад)
When the windvane failed did you attempt "sheet to tiller" steering? John Lecter wrote a book on and it and it sounds like it would be a very useful skill to have as backup.

Brings back memories, my first offshore sail also started from Vancouver Island. I also had self steering problems. I then discovered sheet to tiller self steering, which was my backup/standby for the remainder of my circumnavigation. I strongly recommend offshore sailors set their boats up for it. The one system which will never break (not much to it).

Just curious how you sleep and if you rely solely on the AIS alerting you to ships (and what about all the boats without is transmitters)?  thanks.  great video!

Автор Mark Julius ( назад)
Good video. Thank you for sharing. I have a few questions if you don't mind: How much food did you bring for the trip? Did you do any fishing? Can you explain how that mechanical wind vane works? Did you bring any fresh fruits and vegetables? Thanks again for the video. Thumbs up. ☺ ⛵

Oops, my bad : )  Confused your video with another!!

To funny : )  Your boat is no Spencer.  Its an Ericson.  How did that mistake get made? I'm sure you know your boat right?

Really enjoyed your video and narration!  Your boat looks so much like an Ericson especially with the Ericson logo on your main.  Thanks for posting

Disappointed. :( Title says, "from BC to Hawaii" but when the video starts you're already 250 miles of the California coast.  I live on Vancouver Island, been to Port Renfrew many times and was looking forward to seeing familiar sights. along with all the rest of your trip.

Автор Mike Hirko ( назад)
Your video starts on the 4th day off CA...how was the trip down the WA and OR coast?  How far off shore did you sail down the coast?

Автор Ray Rothermel ( назад)
Fascinating video.  But the thing that always bothers me about these videos is the wind sound distortion.  Is there a proper fix for that depending on the kind of video camera you are using?

Автор John Cook ( назад)
With the servo arm gone and the electric auto pilot not functional, use a couple of blocks to cross the jib sheets to the tiller. Provides self steering. That's why tillers are good on small boats like yours. Other than a few mine have all been larger and had wheel steering. Fortunately I'm pretty crafty and have been able to fix whatever broke.

Met Kevin, tall younger guy, retired govt employee from BC, while he was weathering, sheltered in Winchester Bay Oregon on way to Hawaii last year. Wondered how he managed with his solo journey aboard his 34 double ender? Said if he was enjoying the trip, around the world was a possibility.. Thanks for the vid. May you be blessed with great sailing.

I've watched this video five times over the last year. Love the music, the sound of your voice, and the way you worked your way through the problem. It all adds up to a great description of the pace of a voyage. Thank you.

Автор Thomas Nixon ( назад)
Why didn't you try balancing the boat and rigging up some steering with the sheets. A book by John Letcher is great on sheet-steering systems and self-made wind vanes.  He also designed a great 25-foot, 5500 lb ocean mini-cruiser.  I built one but never made it to sea.  This video makes my heart ache for a missed dream.

Nice boat and video.  Looking into which windpilot has what to offer.

What is your opinion with your Aries?
You getting to use the windpilot since this voyage?

A trip I took many times in the late 70's early 80's.  I worked for a group that delivered sailboats.  They had a side of the business that would deliver boats to Hawaii from North America. The owners would fly over and meet their craft and sail around the islands.  Most often we would then return it to anywhere from Juneau to San Diego.
