Re: Sailing video bloggers getting a bit too dramatic?

Does anybody know what happened to Wes and Kate? They seemed to disappear shortly after their boat sank. Just a few boat sinking youtubes and then nothing for the past few months (last one October 15th).

They probably have gone back to work to save for a new boat. Though maybe they threw in the towel after the sinking. They reached their goal with the previous boat so a tip of the hat to them. Also You Tube cruising channels have proliferated quite a bit so making money through ads and Pateron may be much tougher this go round for them. I enjoyed following them on their first trip south while they were learning along the way.

I wonder if they are having trouble with the insurance claim, which would undoubtedly ruin them. The best I could tell, it was a failed thru hull or hose. If the loss is deemed consequential damage from something they failed to maintain properly (two hose clamps, old hose, corroded valve, etc) and they didn't buy specific coverage for that (most don't), the claim could be denied.

Re: Sailing video bloggers getting a bit too dramatic?

I checked in with a good friend who knows them. He has not seen them since the end of sailing season, but that is not unusual since in past years they would move on to their non-sailing lives during the off-season. He believes that the insurance company has notified them that they are covered, though not sure if they've actually received the check yet. I do not know the cause of sinking, except that they fully disclosed to the insurance company any user error that may have been involved. If all of this is true, it's nice to see young people being up-front with the insurance company about any mistakes that they made, and their good karma being rewarded with a fair settlement. I don't know for sure, but this appears to be the case.

Re: Sailing video bloggers getting a bit too dramatic?

I saw a FB post today that says that the Wicked Salty crew are looking for a ~$30K boat in SC or VA.
