Hi Argyle, thanks,

I've wanted to make a video tour of Paragon for so long... but for the past 7 months I've been too busy just filming our own voyage and also many interviews and tours of other cruising boats we've met along the way. There's a ton of footage of Paragon, including lots of stories of maintenance work and also equipment breakdowns with us figuring out how to fix stuff to before continuing on. We broke our steering cables shortly after pushing off from Greeland and had to return to the weather station by emergency tiller to fix it, and somehow we managed to film everything.

I can't wait to start publishing the episodes in January.

happy sailing,
