Re: Devastatingly sad video: "The End of The Dream"

I don't know how Mads can do all that boat work, constantly change camera angles, do all the video editing and the incredible amount of research he does to complete a project. Whatever his day job is, certainly there is little free time. I am happy he does it though for the learning experience he shares. He has recently made me feel better about my 41 year old rudder which is of a similar construction to his. Keep at it Mads.

Re: Devastatingly sad video: "The End of The Dream"

Another Mads fan here, I really admire his attitude and work ethic. He bought his Warrior without having it surveyed and it's definitely biting him in the ass. Nearly the entire first year's work on the boat has to be redone since he's tearing out the interior to fix the water logged ribs. His vlog is a great cautionary tale on buying a boat without a survey.

No matter where you go, ....

This^^^^

Mads has a full-time job (something to do with software, I think), but has said that he is getting closer to being able to do videos as his main source of income.

At the end of one of his videos, Mads included a bunch of outtakes, showing him flubbing the "Good morning, guys" intros a few times. It struck me then just how much time he must take setting up the cameras, adjusting the lighting, coming up with the corny jokes, producing the strange "special effects" he used to do a lot of (anyone else remember the dancing screws?), and editing. If he weren't recording, I'll bet he'd be done with the project by now.

Well, maybe not.

He is fun to watch...I have picked up quite a few things from him, and I find him entertaining. On a side note, one thing I have picked up from him is my now existent vocabulary of Danish cuss words...

An exerpt from a blog story on him seems to pretty much describe Mads: "Mads has been making his sailboats rugged and strong and beautiful, and the successes and screwups are there to be seen, as well as his response to good and bad days, which he faces with a very upbeat personality and a smile, so occasionally hearing him swear in English or Danish is jarring in a very funny way, like hearing Sally Field dropping an F-bomb kind of funny.
At any rate, if TV was this entertaining, I'd probably watch TV. What is most endearing is that he obviously values the comments, and a lot of people tune into his channel once a week to take part, and you tend to walk away impressed and happier than you start out. Pretty cool stuff"

I hadn't watched the La Vbagabonde videos in a long time. I was surprised to find they now have a baby. I sort of lost interest when they got the catamaran.

I was watching an episode of La vagabonde's sailing video in which Riley mentioned that their compass had been off kilter and was giving him erroneous readings. He showed something they had stored in a fishing bag that was throwing the compass off. He briefly showed it but I couldn't tell what it was. It was a black cylindrical object, some piece of electronic equipment, about the size of a Pringles can, but I didn't catch what it was. One of their patrons who was guest sailing with them tipped him off to the problem, and said that he had experienced the same problem on his boat.
Does anybody know what it was?

Re: Devastatingly sad video: "The End of The Dream"

If you could note the episode number/name and what time to find it on the episode, I'm sure several would check it out.

I'm fairly bored by SLV. I did watch an episode or two, when their baby was born. Have to be happy for them. However, I worry that the baby is now being exploited for clicks and patreon donations and it would make me cringe to watch that.

I think it's terrific that they are able to continue to cruise with their baby. Personally, I feel the baby should make brief cameo appearances only, or be very tangential to the scene. So far, for this and one other I've seen with a baby aboard, they contain full-on home baby recordings. Baby talk and all. While they are probably just proud parents, I still think the child could grow up resenting all the exposure.

Ok, I had to go back and watch. It was episode 188, at 6:26, the last one before Elena goes back to Australia to have her baby.

It was a Bluetooth speaker they had sitting right by their compass sensor. One of their patreon/guests Eddie, mentioned that he had his compass go haywire when they stored a bag of fishing gear in the locker where the compass sensor was.
