Re: The future of RAN Sailing?!
The vid says they'll be buying a bigger boat, with the baby coming. We'll see. I like watching their adventures. Maybe just a tad too much shore scenes. I prefered to see him rebuild his engine, sail the PNW, etc.
Seems many of the young sailing channels are having or have had babies. LaVagabond, Delos and Ran. There is another Brit/Italian couple, whose channel I'm forgetting, that already has a toddler.
None of the first three seem to have jobs, other than making youtube videos. The unrecalled last, seems mostly coastal and marina liveaboard and give me the impression have day jobs. It will be interesting to see how long the Patreon sponsor bubble lasts, or how long they can maintain interest, before the next fancy comes along. I'm a Delos fan, but not so much a LaVag fan. Delos has recently been more like a scuba channel, with their Drenched crew aboard, and I bore of endless minutes of coral video. Delos historically had an edge up, however, LaVag's subscriptions have exploded since their baby arrived. They are a sailing channel with over a million subscribers now. Seems more like child actor exploitation to me.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
