    A few days at sea, just Riley and me. We anchor in the middle of the Great Bahama Bank in the flattest, clearest water in the whole freaking world!! What's also super romantic about this sail is our little chat about boat toilets and some horror stories from the past 😂🚽 has anyone else nearly died thinking they broke a boat toilet and would have to get someone, like your partner, to come in and fix it? Enjoy the video guys, we love ya! Elayna and Riley xo

    My favorite thing about your channel is that you show the reality of living on a boat, the maintenance, the good and the bad. My wife and I dream about living on a boat one day with our 1year old son. I'll be excited to see you guys with your son on the boat

    I recently went through the biggest heartbreak I’ve ever head and I stopped watching your videos out of sheer jealousy of the amazing bond you two share as ridiculous as that may sound😅 However after months of feeling sorry for myself this video made me feel better, not sure why but it was lovely❤️

    sitting on my desk, doing just administrative tasks, I love watching you guys live life to the fullest. I love your channel, love your energy and joy in life, love seeing raw emotions. I'm just right there with you. Rather scared myself to just leave everything and take a risk like you did , but every episode I move forward (or backwards :) ) watching you, I feel myself pushed in doing what I love and going for my own goals. Thank you for being you and showing exactly that on every episode. I wish you all the love, friendship, warmth and luck of the world. Keep up the good work!

    Hey guys, quick editing tip: When you put text in your videos, put the same text in white behind the black text, but make the white text slightly larger. This "halo" effect makes it much easier to see your subtitles against very dark or light backgrounds, sometimes it's hard to read just plain black text. Please don't stop making videos when the baby comes!

    An interesting feature about Andros. I went there when I was in the US Navy on a submarine. There is a sonar range there called AUTEC. Submarines run through a trench that has hydrophone arrays to give a ‘picture’ of what your submarine sounds like with different machinery configurations. I would assume there was a pretty obvious “no-go” area on your charts. Cheers guys!

    You desalinator water is perfect for making sauerkraut. Clear water, salt, carroway seeds , cabbage & a big jar. Half fill the jar with very salty water, throw in enough carroway seed and then fill with fine chopped cabbage. After about 2 weeks it will begin to cure, after 3 months it should be good and it will last indefinitly. Good voyage food.
    EDIT: Press down the cabbage in the jar so it's submerged, ( and if you decide there's not enough carroway just add some more).

It was fun to hear you two just giggling and goofing off. the wynns just put out a video of a back pack that Jason uses. And don't worry daddy you will need more than one bag. ha ha ha ha Do you have any sails that you have not used yet and if so why? : ) peace

    Down to earth, you are paradoxically exilliarating, a kind of anchor to the ground for a culturally floating or fluxing city citizen like me, as you remind me of the simple, true and lasting things - and you do this in the most pleasant, friendly and appropriate way anyone could think of.
    You are my weekly (nothing about me is weekly or even daily) light tower, again paradoxdix-cully, as you are on sail and a light tower is mostly stationary and ignored (in philosophy)...
    Again thanks for your just awesome being there, the three of you ;)

Thank you for sharing your life with the world I do enjoy it so much.I have been medically disabled for the last 18 years and I started following ESclips about 4 years ago just to see places that I will never get to see now and I've dust discovered sailing videos recently and I'm loving them and as I said yours is my favorite channel to watch and I'm looking forward to the new baby that will be so precious to see.

    I have that bag and love it! Ive had it for 6 years and the best one I've ever had. If your running into the issue of where do I put folders/papers etc. Don't tuck your ICU flap under and in the bag, keep it on top like it's just unzipped. Then when you close the entire bag you have room between the ICU and bag flap that you unzip. I put my laptop in there when traveling.

    It's amazing that you guys bring your patreons out for sails but what about finding some local family who's never been out on the ocean but have watched yacht after yacht come through their island their entire lives? Now that would be something.
