    In addition to how much safer it is having help, you are employing people, giving people opportunities to live and work on a sail boat and providing social exposure to your children who live remotely most of the time. Ignore the trolls.
    Plus David is very easy on the eyes so thank you 🙏🏻 from the bottom of my heart 🥰😂

    First got into BTC back in 2016 and have been hodling/buying sats at different price points since. I've been through corrections before and will likely experience more over the future. Volatility is simply the price one needs to pay if they want to play. I don't have any Alts as I'm a bit of a BTC Maxi, but that said, if BTC hasn't died before, it surely won't do so now. Stick in there - yes we are all feeling the pain, but over the long run this will just be a blip. This is how I see past corrections when I felt that I got in at a high (back then I think it was less than $1000 and bouncing all over the place!). Now when I look back, all I see is regret for not having the courage in buying more at those times. But if you believe BTC has value, then by all means, buy these dips if you can afford to. For those who got in at 60 or 70K and feeling the crunch: hang in there. BTC is not a get rich quick scheme. Wait it out and you will see: you will come away stronger. I buy and just trade long term more than ever, I have made over 7.6` btc from day trading with Jordan Kyle Crypto in few weeks this is one of the best medium to backup your assets incase it goes bearish. Technical analysis is my second language....…You can reach Jordan on ͲeIєɠɾαm @Tw JordanK

      Everything is selling off in the asset bubble created by the Fed. Many are nervous. Those who understand Bitcoin know it’s our best chance to invest, the price is low and with high volatility retail traders like Jordan L Kyle makes more profit.

Good parenting is good parenting whatever your circumstances and wherever you live. Your kids are so sweet together and constantly make me laugh out loud. My nest is empty but my kids (adults) come back often to check on me and now they definitely nurture me in return. Keep focused on your little family unit and encourage their relationships with friends and crew members. Your example of positivity is good for all our souls! Thank you xx

Riley, live the absolute care you out into sailing for the safety of everyone. For the spaghetti, i have used both a plate and a bowl. Im not a fan of digging into the bowl really so it depends on where i’ll be sitting to eat whether i use a bowl or not. Definitely better for the kids though. 😁

My kids did like yours they played with pots, pans, toys and i read books to them. The best toy is a box it's so funny they would play with a box before their toys. 😂 Thank you for sharing I really enjoy watching and God bless. 💖🤗

Whether on land or sea ... this is how we should live - small, cosy and mostly self sufficient. Living in touch with nature and knowing how to navigate each day - is powerful and rewarding. Those who choose to take shots at you wouldn't last a day - clueless. I enjoyed this episode. Just sweet.

    Knowing your situation and limitations is a sign of maturity and being experienced sailors. Having crew onboard to help out, especially with active young children onboard, is a very smart move. Ignore the trolls, they are more than likely to be envious of you and what you are doing. Keep up the good work and looking forward to your travels on your new trimaran.

    I have just started watching your channel this last month and I binged watched most of your episodes. I am so excited to see your next adventure at my part of the world (I am from Malaysia). I even got my Asian land bound parents hooked on your channel and to consider getting a boat and just sail during their golden years. I would love to be able to sail the seas right now, but until it can be financially viable and workable for my life, I am living vicariously through your channel. Both of you are doing an amazing job raising a family on the seas. Us land people take for granted the amenities available on land and we don't appreciate it. Therefore, I think you should NEVER EVER feel bad for having crew on board to help you. I cannot ever imagine how you would be able to stay safe as a family without your crew! I also love your crew and I do hope we get to see more of Andre at some point. Anyhow, keep doing what both of you think is best for your family and ignore the haters and trolls. Looking forward to your next episode! If you are in Malaysia I hope I could meet all of you.

    I am in awe. You are doing an amazing job raising children at sea. I can’t imagine doing that even with a lil help from such a small crew of 2. Bravo. Claustrophobia and cabin fever with such young children would have me in tears a lot. I love your channel. All the best and blessings from an American on St. Vincent.

    I’m thinking back to the first video I ever watched of you guys…and what it would have been like if this was my first one…yep, you would have caught me like a fish! There were some funny (cheeky aka naughty) bits…and add in Ally and David being on board and the children being their ever sweet selves. Thanks for sharing this week… cheers from New Zealand. 🇳🇿🇳🇿🐑🐑

    i really like the deep dive your videos have been doing lately - into the nitty gritty of life as a young sailing family. it's incredible how much planning goes into what can seem from the "outside" as a simple sail from point A to point B.
    blows my mind how you are able to intertwine the ever-changing workings of family life with the ever-changing duties of sailing.
    love your authenticity and genuine gratitude for life.

    Much respect for your ❤️ and caring for Marine Life. I just watched a doc on Raja Ampat Islands of Indonesia (Tales by Light S3EP02 Netflix) and if not on your radar, I think you guys deserve an excursion there to witness the spoils of such conservation efforts. The bonus wouldl be seeing the good news of that park's effort spread across social media by stewards like SLV!

    Good for you guys for getting a crew and keeping everyone safe like good parents. Love the content with the kids, ours are 5, 5, & 3 and they love the magnets that your boys have they also love books with textures and windows to find things. 😊

    Hey you guys, oh man i love your Vlog! It's my ration of vacation each week. Thank you!😃 You ask for entertaining stuff for your kids, we have three small kids, 6,5,2 and they love their Toniebox. As you like to hear your podcast, they can hear they favorit storys with the box or headphones. And they dont need to read, just put the figure onto the box and it gets startet. Hope its a good idea for you? Stay safe! And the best wishes from Germany 👋

    Oh I hope you like Eleuthera! Many moons ago I went there for my honeymoon, before it became a destination. Friendliest island people I've ever met. Invited us into their home and when I remarked about how awesome their seafans were all over their home they took one right off the shelf and gave it to me! Their son dives for them....enjoy!

    First loved the video, had me laughing and blushing with Elayna . second: Riley you are right they should just shut up. So many people had all the right ways that we should raise our son and pointed out the things they thought wasn't right. But it's all up to us as parents to lessen to our children and make sure they are safe and HAPPY, And my kid is happy and he is getting to see a lot and do a lot that he wouldn't get to do if we where working a 9 to 5 every day and just living for the weekend. So do you. Your kids are seeing and learning so much. I only wish that we had been able to do what we are doing now when our son was younger. if they are not happy and where in any way suffering I have no doubt you guys would do whatever it took to make them happy. And Third: Plate for sure not a bowl. :)

    Hello lovees! You don’t need to answer to anybody! You guys are great parents, smart and safe. Always watching out for the safety of the whole crew… Especially the boys! It just warmed my heart to see Lenny at the helm! Those kids are getting the best life, the best education in the world. Real life experiences that will last them for the rest of their lives. Every time I look in the boys eyes my heart melts a little. They have the most gorgeous eyes!
    You guys have no idea how much of an impact you’ve made on my life. Once I watch your video then I can’t wait for the week to pass so there’s another video. Occasionally I’ll go back and watch old videos. Just to get my fix. You guys are addicting! Anyway thank you so much. You are appreciated more than you will ever know. Sending so much love from California💜😎🤟🏻🇺🇸

    The bowl vs plate struggle is real!
    I can eat just about everything from the bowl. There is something about the comfort of higher edges 😹 But for my boyfriend it is the opposite, he needs his plate and space around the food, to eat comfortably 😅
    Love you guys, keep up the good work with the content. Sending lots of love to all of you! 💕🙋🏼‍♀️
