Hold Fast

...Stories of maniac sailors, anarchist castaways, and the voyage of the S/V Pestilence...



I would sail with these guys anytime!

Re: Hold Fast

Repeat from 2010, found here: other thread

Good find though, and I think this subforum is a better place for it.

Re: Hold Fast

fun video... glad they got out there and did what they wanted to do. Dangerous, maybe stupid, but as long as they survive, it will give them memories that will last a lifetime and the resolve to do what they need to do in order to get through life

Then, that must mean you don't mind if i come over and drink your rum, take a dump in your head, borrow your tools and steal your radio? I'm just upholding the true spirit of cruising.

Of course. How naive of me. So it makes breaking into, squatting on and damaging someone else's boat the right thing to do.

These kids weren't down and out, you know. And they also knew how to sail. This "documentary" was like Blair Witch Project was a documentary.

Hold Fast

I didn't make the video or break and enter. I like the fact they sail without a motor and take chances and are adventurous. I look to the positive things I saw in the vid and made a comment. If hating on me makes you feel better then I am glad I can help.
