I have an Alberg 30 going to check out the cape horn model wind vane.
Always carry the critical parts to a voyage of a longer nature or duration
than intended. Duh.

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
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

Like your videos. They're probably the only chance I'll ever get to go to

Thoroughly enjoyed your video, and the music perfectly appropriate. Own an

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.

There was a book published in the late 60s or early 70s titled something
like "Self Steering for Small Sailcraft" - this book explained how to
bring lines back to the tiller and use sail tension or the lack of it to
steer the boat - I tried a few of the suggested combinations and they
worked, just on inland waters but no reason they should not have worked for
a long passage - that is what the author had primarily used them for.

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).

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.

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.

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.
