Re: Visiting Friends on Southern Cross (Dickerson 41 Sailboat)

Hi Minnewaska, I filmed this last March in Oriental, NC, and finished filming just 6 days before Monique and I pushed off aboard our Westsail 42 'Paragon' to spend the next 6 months sailing over 6000 nautical miles to Iceland. We are now spending 6 months in Reykjavik, Iceland editing video every day. We hope to publish 1 new video every Tuesday of everything that's happened since we left Oriental...

Don and D are in Oriental and have done tons of work to Southern Cross since the tour. I think they are planning to start their next big voyage this Summer.

Thank you for sailing with us,

Drake

video: Cabin Tour of Southern Cross, Part 1

We look at Southern Cross' beautiful dragon carvings, the galley, the massive storage lockers, the structural members of the wood hull, an ingenious custom salon table design, sea berths, the propane fireplace and much much more.

Don and D also talk about the different Dickerson 41 layouts, the annual Dickerson Rendezvous, and their incredible voyage to the Macareo River in Veneuzela.

video: Cabin Tour of Southern Cross, Part 2 (Dickerson 41 Sailboat)
Part 2 of a guided tour of the cabin of Don and D's Dickerson 41 cruising sailboat 'Southern Cross.'

We look at Southern Cross' deck and cabin top construction, the remodeling of the forward head, anchor chain storage, the electrical panel, the navigation station, the non-electric and very reliable tank tender and much much more.

Love to see how they are both equally into their refit.

Hey Drake,

I was watching the video and I was wondering if you have any similar footage from Paragon. It would be interesting to see how you have your own boat set up and what you did special to prepare for your trip.

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,

Drake

Cabin Tour of Southern Cross, Part 3

We look at Southern Cross' engine room and aft cabin, and meet Joe Clay, the shipwright who has been working on Southern Cross in Oriental, North Carolina.

Re: Visiting Friends on Southern Cross (Dickerson 41 Sailboat)

What they are doing is outstanding. I don't think I would have the patience for such an extensive refit. Seems like one hundred simultaneous projects.

Re: Visiting Friends on Southern Cross (Dickerson 41 Sailboat)


In the last episode of our Southern Cross boat tour series, we look at Southern Cross' autopilot, steering quadrant, emergency tiller, and SCUBA equipment. Don and D tell about using Southern Cross as a dive boat in Bonaire, using their Hookah to scrub the hull, how they conserve fuel, and about Blondie Hasler's invention of the wind vane.
