    When THIS video was first released, I was quite smitten with its natural charm & authenticity. . "I Wondered" how it would hold up after 5 years, & I find Elayna & Riley reruns still fresh & captivating.

    I recently just found you guys on youtube and have decided to rewatch all of your videos in order from the beginning. I instantly fell in love with your lifestyle. In this episode especially I can see such a big switch in the editing and filming style. I love how you guys are able to do such beautiful filming but still keep such a home video-esque vibe. Love your work can't wait to catch up!

    Hey fellow mates from Oz. I've been following your quests for months now...one question...how often do you guys lose winch handles overboard? I can imagine in heavy seas when you have to frantically use the handle and then transfer it to another part of the boat that one could easily drop it. Just curious. Safe sailing lovely people. Give Lenny a hug and kiss from us all back in Oz.

    There is a place in the Caribbean that I go to every other year with my family. It’s Hopetown, Abaco, Bahamas and it is amazing. There’s a ton of restaraunts, and beaches. It is not a touristy place like Nassau, Bahamas. It is beautiful and close to a ton of other islands. We usually arrive by plane in Marsh Harbour, Bahamas and then take a ferry boat to Hopetown and Elbow Cay. We always rent a boat to fish and to island hop. It is a great family friendly place that I think you would love!

    I just wanted to say that I enjoy a lot your adventures and especially all the good vibe you get from what you do. I follow you from when you had the old boat, some years ago now. I would not enjoy sailing, I get seasick so easily, and love your videos, to me it is very strange, but I love it.
    Now, the addition of baby adventures is just amazing...
    Hoping for the best in the future and expecting to follow you for long

    While you guys are taking a much-deserved break, I've come back to watch some of your old videos.
    Wow how far you have come, the editing, the filming, and the content are night and day.
    It's fun to see you both so very young, not just in age :)
    What I wasn't expecting was to feel sad. This was like watching a memory and it made me feel sad to have not been able to see your latest video this week. It was entertaining to go back and see you as baby ESclipsrs, it really showed me that you are a big part of my regular life.
    You guys are an inspiration, I love you and wish you the best moving forward in this f*#ked up world we are all living through right now. Bless you and may you travel many more seas in this life :)

    Great video and sound track you two (four) featuring Rodriguez. I wonder how many of your supporters have heard of him? I just discovered him recently from his documentary, he has made some really good undiscovered music. I always feel bad for the fishies when they are being hunted with spear guns, not judging, just saying. If the Lionfish are in invasive then all bets are off. I'm glad that you are feeling better after being poisoned on the last episode. Sorry for the late post, I'm playing catch up after recently discovering your channel. As for the boys and their haircuts, Momma just let it grow...

    i have experienced the same trouble with mdi box failing as you have and when I just now was on my no. 6 box I suspected the panel with four buttons starting/stopping panel to be the caus of the failing boxes. I swapped both box and panel this weekend for a pair of new ones, and voila, no more worries! I suggest you do it too if you havn't already. I enjoy your videos, and I'm glad your OK Riley from your neck issues!
