sailors backwards unboxing video
 
I bought some roller reefing and thought I would have a go at an unboxing video

some of which get millions of hits on youtube

if you doubt me type unboxing into youtube

I watched my own one and it lacked a little something

so I ran it backwards

which made it marginally more interesting

I speak Swedish at the end



and then I made a film about how to install roller reefing


which is probably only of interest is you are planning to do it at some stage -

although there is a bit of drama in the middle when I drop a screw into the long lush grass of Buckinghamshire and there are puppies in the background

CDI - Flexible Furlers

cost the same in dollars as the plastimo does in Pounds

and looks to be a pretty good idea

although I am told now that raising the genoa is a bit of a mission

Can we get an explanation of why the roll of TP is on the table?

bog roll....

it is all to do with the puppy scandal

BBC hack so short of cash for round the island sail that he turns to puppy farming scandal

Maggy the boat dog has had pups -

they have their own youtube site

raisingmaggie = www.keepturningleft.co.uk - YouTube

much to my surprise I have already managed to sell some of the pupppy footage as stock film

the bog roll is because our garden has became something of a puppy pile minefield


however the puppies are going this weekend and today the new Tohatsu arrives so Katie L will be ready for the water

Dylan

PS.... is the how to fit a roller reefing film any use at all?

I have the EXACT same teak table on the patio in my back yard! I have 6 teak chairs to go with it, and they are ridiculously heavy.

It may LOOK the same, but since Lord Winter is in the Yoo Kay, his table is fastened with whitworth fasteners, is positive ground and wired for 220.

Nice vids, director Winter. The hanging bucket on the forestay is a clever touch.
