Whatís your favorite YouTube channels on trawlers and maritime issues

Can we generate a list of the best youtube channels on trawler life? Boat selection, voyages, navigation, etc?

I am working on a project boat.
So this guy "My First Boat" is one of my favourite channels. I have watched them all and wait with baited breath for the next release

Watching this guy slowly and lovingly rebuild this boat is a great inspiration to me.
"hey, if he can do it, so can I"

And of course, for marine electrical, I love these guys.
"Pacific Yacht Systems"

I especially like the detailed videos, (you will have to go back a few years in their video history some spanning several hours, from seminars they hold at boat shows.

Tally Ho is really good, as is Sailing Magic Carpet. It's great to see young, very skilled a capable people, taking on and following through on big projects. They perhaps are not as entertaining as channels of clueless, giggling children walking in to walls, but much more informative and encouraging WRT the evolution of humanity.


Project Brupeg is pretty good too and I *think* they will get it done.


SV Seeker has some interesting stuff, but it's frustrating and annoying how dismissive the guy is with respect to marine-specific stuff that he just doesn't understand fully. As a result, I think the boat is pretty much a shite-show. The most recent I noticed was how he has all the exhaust pipes from machinery merging together into a single exhaust pipe. And lots of air-cooled engines in the boat. But hey, he knows better.

Here are mine...

https://www.youtube.com/c/SailingYachtZora
Irish guy successfully resurrects an old steel sailboat and recently sailed it to Spain and Portugal

https://www.youtube.com/c/svdelos
Sailing. Tech savy guy, wife, kid and some guests. Fun and well shot, but not for everyone

https://www.youtube.com/c/SVSeeker
As mentioned above. Great attitude and commitment, but somethings are a bit off

https://www.youtube.com/c/MVFreedom
Couple from Seattle on a Nordhaven. Nice, but a bit dry

https://www.youtube.com/c/ProjectBrupeg
Kiwis in NZ rebuilding a steel boat in Oz. Lots of insight and tech info. Great

https://www.youtube.com/c/AnAchievableDream
Also mentioned above. Great, but very few episodes

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUs...1aNglyj8-sInSw
My First Boat. I also like this guy. He's crazy

https://www.youtube.com/c/gonewiththewynns
Sailing. Nice couple. Exotic locations. Interesting adventures

https://www.youtube.com/c/PacificYachtSystems
Sparky

https://www.youtube.com/c/DangarStu
Oz guy successfully rebuilt a steel boat and cruised up (and now down) the gold coast. My favorite, but not sure what new content will be

https://www.youtube.com/c/SailingUma
Sailing. A super nice (but sometimes annoying) couple on some amazing adventures. Best camera work. Beautiful to watch.

Winters in Russia are looooooong and dark

Below are mine:

https://www.youtube.com/c/samholmessailing
"Sam Holmes Sailing" Like that in covers maintenance, repairs, and upgrading as well as interesting travel.

https://www.youtube.com/c/WindHippieSailing
"Wind Hippie Sailing" Obvious she in having fun and enjoying what she is doing. Also like that she is committed to no in video advertisement. She does do PayPal and Pateron but not pushy. This is my wife's favorite and she now follows her on Instagram. Wife also is now more open to looking at sailboats as well as trawlers.

https://www.youtube.com/c/ParlayRevival
"Sailing Parlay Revival" Another one that includes lots of boat repair and upgrading. The folks are interesting and likeable. They bought a hurricane damaged 45' catamaran and have revolving crew (some which are viewers) coming to sail and do projects. The main guy is an engineer and a patient teacher of the new crew.

Wife and I watch these over and over - with great interest the first couple of times and then as pleasant and interesting background chatter while puttering in the kitchen or around the house.

I sponsor Tula's Endless Summer through one of our brands, so we get a little preview from Billy and Sierra on upcoming projects. They are currently rebuilding a Defever, videos should be up in the next month or so when they catch up. Really nice young couple with good videos (and a fun dog). They started with a Marine Trader 34, sold it and switched to an older catamaran (sail), which they cruised deep into the Caribbean and then sold. They have a contract in on a new cat but it is super delayed, so they have been crossing the US in a truck camper. They bought the DeFever in San Francisco, it needs a lot of work. Should be a fun watch.

I've been getting a kick out of these guys lately. Not a flashy channel that films tap water running is slow motion, just a couple sharing about different aspects of cruising that have really done it. Sailors but the guy retired early and has been cruising for 20+ years so he has a been there done that perspective.
https://www.youtube.com/c/EmilyClarksAdventure

He's got some interesting builds with A/C and wind generation. Also some interesting ways of provisioning using carbon dioxide. His wife did a dinghy build that gave me some ideas on how to spruce up my next dinghy build with sea life art.

Living vicariously through these guy's lately. The one "kid" lives aboard an older Monk 36' in San Diego.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcs...Q4eEhN4bmvyc5w

Small following but I like their style. He has done a few other videos with other channels.

I just stumbled across this channel this evening. 2 young guys taking a Albin 38 trawler to Florida. When I saw episode 2, I thought to myself that they weren't even going to even get started but I was wrong! We started out cruising about 40 years too late...damn, they do more sightseeing in a single day than I do in a week!

They are having a blast!
I canít believe how they just motored off being beached - or how the 60kt winds bent their stainless cleat.

The couple from Lazy Gecko's have certainly developed a unique business model. She now has an "Only Fans" site in addition to her xxx Patreon subscription service. "I'm Brittany! I'm a Mommy, Marine wife and a Sailor girl! Welcome to my little Nauti place on the web.

https://onlyfans.com/nautimate

Definitely puts the "Porn" in Boat Porn.
