All drama. All BS. He lost thousands of subscribers. Hope he lost a bunch of Patrons too.
I watched some of his videos early on and was appalled at what I was seeing. I am not a welder, but when a guy is welding in shorts, with no safety gear, and his toddler grandkid is playing around next to active welding... He was shocked when his legs were "sun burned."
I would watch from time to time to see what he was up too and I really hope he "finishes" and floats that boat. I really want to see what happens. The boat build is based on a technique that I would not even consider.
Eventually, I mostly stopped watching the videos, but then I heard about his fake accident, and the only video(s) I will watch now, is, if and when he launches that boat.
For those who do not know, he is building behind his house, that he rehabed, which is in an industrial area. He got divorced years ago.
He has talked about using the boat as a research and/or repair operation but methinks he just might run into issues with regulations.
