YouTube Trawler Channels

Hi All
There are literally hundreds of sailing channels on YouTube but I can't find many trawler related channels. Apart from "Winty", which is a great resource, I'm looking for help to locate channels where i can get tips on trawler maintenance and operation.

I'll be interested in this too. Millennial Sailors figured out that if they produce a relatively quality product they can eek out a meager living via Patreon gifts. The rest of YouTube amateur videos channels (powerboats included) are mostly stream of consciousness where they just turn on the camera and start babbling without an outline or script.

That said, I've watched a couple videos from MV Dirona (nordhavn owner) that were incredibly interesting from a technical perspective. Where guys like that find the time to do what they do is amazing to me. His attention to detail is amazing. Makes me want to grab a beer and take a break.

A non-boat specific YouTube channel with crossover appeal to me for mechanical reasons is Project Farm. He has about 900k subscribers and does mostly comparison videos like this one on whether synthetic oil will blow seals in an old diesel.

‘Tulsa’s Endless Summer” starts out as a trawler video. It eventually turns into a sailing video.

Seattleboatguy did a series of videos on doing the great loop in a Marine Trader 38. I found them to be interesting and enjoyable.

+1 for “Winty”. He has some good tips on Ford Lehman service as well as general maintenance.

Searching for C-shels is really good. They are in a mid 40’ aft Cabin Tollycraft.
