Engine Room Checklist

Hope it helps. Remember, we are certainly no experts. The list is just what we have developed over the years of cruising. We do make it a point when we have guest for extended cruises, (more than a week), and if appropriate, we have guest do engine room checks and follow the list and participate in all the "boat operation" stuff. (navigation, watch schedule, course planning, etc.) We have found it helps guest stay fully engaged in the cruising process.

I keep checking to see if you have posted another. Thanks for the heads-up. I am sitting at anchor at Penrose Point, I may wait to watch it when I get home.

I’m really looking forward to vids of your trip North.

Thanks for another interesting video Jim and Rosie. The new superstructure appears very functional and looks good on your boat. Enjoy your summer cruising, we’ll be following along online.

For those interested, we are now posting videos from our 3,002 NM summer cruise throughout SE Alaska. The series, once all posted, includes our cruise from Puget Sound to SE Alaska, cruising the remote west cost of Baranof Island, cruising in 10-12 foot seas with our new paravane system, exploring Glacier Bay, experiencing 50 knot winds, and lots of whales, bears, etc.

So far, 7 videos are posted in the series.

Here is a link to the latest episode.

Thanks,

We were so tickled to see the latest video from you guys. It seems that your stabilizers are really working out well.

As always, we look forward to seeing what will come next.

Flat seas and...wait...what was it?

Can you post a link to the one highlighting paravanes? Thanks!

Murray, Just out of interest?

Appears to be duplicate of commercial troller setup, no mystery.
Wander down to the Prince Rupert floats next opportunity and gander at the various similar design objective on these boats.

Are you indicating that your tug requires such installation? I'd be surprised with your low center of G. stabilizers would enhance to a personal comfort'fiscal investment, rather a weather eye, even with the rare occasion of being "Caught". would suffice. Butt ugly too in my opinion, to the design of a "Tug".

All of this based on my prior boat that was similar in hull design/specifications as a Sundowner plus actual experiences of being "Caught" on occasion.

Hi Murray,

We did an entire series on the deck reinforcement / superstructure / paravane design and build.

If interested you can go to our YouTube page, click on the tab labeled "Playlist" and watch the series for the refit.

We did the refit because we do a fair amount of ocean travel (ie: Seattle to Mexico, Seattle to Hawaii, Mexico to the Galapagos Islands, etc). If you are primarily doing coastal cruising then I would not recommend such an extensive stabilization system.

Thanks,
Jim

You nicely made my point. It makes perfect sense. By the way, I picked up your adventures some time back where you were in the lower BC portion and now happy to read the latest. Well presented.

For East Coast - Bahamas

I have been following Cyndi and Sheldon on the Searching for C-Shels youtube channel.

Charming couple making nice trips from Canada down to the Bahamas at trawler speed in their Tollycraft 44. They show the fun cruising and the not so fun fixing.

They unfortunately don't post on a regular schedule but are starting to try to release at least one a month.

Cyndi and Sheldon on Searching for C-Shels are fun to watch. We have had the chance to email them back and forth (they are a recommended channel on our YouTube channel) and are great.

We can fully appreciate the time needed to produce the videos. We spend about 20 hours for each 20 minute video in post-production time. Not as much time as some high quality channels (like S/V Delos), but it's just a hobby for us so we work on videos when we have time and upload when we have a good hi-speed connection.

As I’ve said, I enjoy your videos. Even more importantly, my wife enjoys them and she is very hard to please.

Not that my opinion matters one whit, but I have felt that your videos have been improving as you have gotten more familiar with the medium. I would recommend that you don’t spend too much effort on “high quality”. As you say, it isn’t a vocation but an avocation. If the post-production becomes too much like work, then you won’t enjoy it and it will quickly become a chore. So what you can to streamline your workflow so you can produce a video as quickly and easily as possible. Those of us interested in the content will enjoy them regardless of any incremental production values.

Al sent me this one since I expressed an interest in paravanes. It's a well done video, but I have a hunch this system is a tad more complex than what you'd find on a working commercial fishing boat here on BC's north coast:
