how is it the boat is dead calm when he is talking to the camera down below in the dark

how does one have time to make and upload a video "mid ocean" and yet not focus on the rudder

how is he sailing in the beggining if the vid? did he get an emergency rudder installed? and why is that wild and rough seas?

Here is the follow up to the first video. We must save the boat - YouTube Agree with Vega, he probably was in a little over his head. But I could see my self ending up like this. I'm known for getting in over my head and doing stupid s*it. Doesn't look like he was ever in any real danger, a little sensationalized.
im even more confused with the 2nd vid...

I think this guy is baiting for publicity, maybe he wants to be on a reality tv show about sailing or something

Im being serious here...this is the most cynical youll ever see me but this is the biggest joke Ive seen in a while

this is utterly fake...

Well, a few years ago, I was sailing a Jeaneau SO 37. In the middle of tack, to avoid the barge coming from aft at port, the steering cable broke. I missed the barge by 10 yards as I used the jib to turned the boat around.

After that I used a18 inches long emergency tiller to steer. After that, I don't even I had time to pee in the next 8 hours to bring her back to home port. Let alone taking video for my adventure. :D

He must be very good.
at making videos...

he sucks on the audio part...:)

sorry its an act...Im the most romantic, respectful and vicarious guy out there...but to me its bait for a show...also and this is just me...I dont quite understand what goes through one´s mind to think that when you really are in danger of dying or sinking or whatever and your first thought is Ill make a series of youtube vids?

its beyond me...

if it isnt an act then Im sorry for my comments but this is the first time I have laughed out loud at someones distress...its just makes no sense...at all

in my case Im not laughing at all at the fact that its a $400 boat, or that he is living his dream or showing others how to...at all

Ive been here done that...even more frugally or scrappy looking...

I just find it so surreal, the thought proceses that lead you to make vids like that when in distress...it goes against al sorts of common sense which one would assume is fix the damn thing and get to harbor safely...forget the act!

I could care less if he is fat, hairy bald or what...jajaja
