Re: Have sailing Youtubers jumped the shark?
It's not like sailing is all that exciting when you are doing it, but watching others do it? Even during that 1% of the time when it is really exciting (definition of sailing; 99% sheer boredom, 1% sheer terror), I should think one would be way too busy to be making a video. Personally, I just don't find it at all interesting to watch youtube videos of people sailing, looking at boats to buy or doing repairs on their boats. Even the ones made to show the damage after Maria and Irma put me to sleep PDQ. They are all way too verbose. Ten seconds and I'm bored to death. Not one of them will ever make a dime off of me.
