How You Can Sail the Marquesas on the Slow Boat in 2017

See never before seen footage of Sahia and Ben in Season 2 of Slow Boat Sailing! We are giving away berths in the South Pacific and so much more to viewers like you who support the videos and podcast on http://www.Patreon.com/slowboatsailing

Slow Boat Sailing is making a podcast and vlog about sailing around the world part-time. The podcast interviews the most interesting cruising sailors in the world, including the crew of SV Delos, White Spot Pirates, Chase the Story, Sailing Miss Lone Star, Wicked Salty, SV Prism, and many more. This costs time and money and we love our supporters who subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, and YouTube as well as those who support us on Patreon.

We will be running contest where our most loyal Patreon supporters can become part of our crew literally as we explore the paradise islands of the South Pacific.

When we hit $80 per round the world vlog episode or podcast episode, I will give away up to 2 weeks in a private berth for two to one of our Patrons. Patrons will be randomly selected based on their long-term support on Patreon. This is several thousand dollar value. Captained charters of similarly sized monohulls usually exceed $400 per day. Thus, this reward is over a $5,000 value.

The timing of that berth depends on the schedules of the winner and Captain Linus Wilson. The Slow Boat is Hiva Oa in the Marquesas. Linus Wilson will be cruising there in May to July 2017. Hopefully, a patron and possibly his or her significant other can join the boat as crew. Any will crew pay their own travel expenses to and from the boat, must sign the required waivers, and agree to the boat rules.

Our one Star or Executive Producer patron can join the crew without winning the drawing.

Before joining the boat, crew drawing winners or star (executive producer) patrons must supply copies of passports, sign the required waivers, and have a round-trip ticket back to their home country. Crew pay their transport expenses to and from the boat.

Patrons of the round the world vlog and podcast get bonus podcast episodes and free audiobooks of How To Sail Around the World Part-Time and Slow Boat to Cuba. They get never before released audiobook chapters of Slow Boat to the Bahamas. You can also get access to many podcasts and videos early as a patron.

Slow Boat to the Bahamas

and

How to Sail Around the World-Part Time

have been #1 sailing bestseller on Amazon. Slow boat to Cuba launches on Amazon on November 21, 2016.

The rewards of being a Patreon far outweigh the costs.

Since starting the podcast and YouTube channel we have had to upgrade our cameras, computer hard drives, and audio equipment. Podcasts must pay hosting fees. We have incurred high internet access fees in foreign countries to put out a regular podcast and to upload videos. For every hour of podcast or minute of video many hours of work must go into them to produce them. We only produce highly edited podcasts and videos because we believe our listeners and viewers time is so valuable.

We make content that is for all audiences and will not sacrifice safety or our relationship with our loved ones to create suggestive thumbnails. Our crew wears life jackets and harnesses in all weather. We don’t cut corners on crew safety to get exciting video.

The vlog is also a video cruising guide of the places we visit focused on the seamanship necessary to visit the exotic foreign ports that we visit. The vlogs recount the adventures of the Slow Boat Crew.

The host of the podcast and the captain of the Slow Boat is Linus Wilson who holds a “six pack” captain’s licenses issued by the United States Coast Guard.

The “Slow Boat” is an Island Packet 31′.

There are 12 episodes planned for season 1.
We have already begun filming season 2 in across the Pacific and in the Marquesas.

Hopefully, we will have the support to film many more seasons of our round the world voyage. Season 1 goes from New Orleans, to Florida, to Cuba, stops at Providencia, though the Panama Canal, and across the equator into the South Pacific.

S1E9: Sailing Offshore to Panama, Shelter Bay Marina, #PanamaCanal, and Checking in Colon, Panama

You will see Linus and Stevie go offshore for the last time together. You will see them pick up anchor in the remote island of Providencia, Colombia to sail two days non-stop to Colon, Panama 250 nautical miles away.

9:23 credits

The Slow Boat hits light winds, and they have engine problems 50 miles from the entrance to the Panama Canal. Linus has a spare fresh water pump and replaces the part and they are soon motoring past container ships at the entrance to the Panama Canal on the Caribbean Sea side, Colon Panama.

They tie up at the only marina at the entrance to the Panama Canal on the Atlantic Ocean side. While the marina is well marked, there are rocks near some buoys. They tour Shelter Bay with its workout facilities, dry storage yard, pool, restaurant and bar, and library.

They try to check in to the country in downtown Colon, which is across the Panama Canal from Shelter Bay Marina. There is a free marina bus but the ride is 30-60 minutes into town depending on the traffic, ferry schedule, or bridge openings over the Gatun Locks of the Panama Canal. The bus stops at the Quatros Altos mall but also drops passengers in downtown Colon.

Stevie and Linus get their 72-hour visas at the cruise ship terminal, but are rebuffed by the Cristobal Port Captain and the Immigration office in the Colon 2000 mall. Stevie leaves the boat and the country to avoid paying the $105 “mariners’ visa”.

Linus returns to Colon, Panama to finish the check in process and get a 90-day mariner’s visa, but refuses to pay an extra $50 “captain’s fee” that he thinks is bogus.

In the Red: Some new camera and recording gear for season 2 and year 2 of the podcast

Besides giving away $1,500 worth of books last month as part of hitting our old $20 
http://www.Patreon.com/slowboatsailing goal, the podcast and video series has had to incur a lot of costs.
In Season 1, Episode 1, I lost my iPhone which we film with. That was about $900+ to replace. Because of the filming, I got one with a 128GB hard drive ($200 more), which is always maxed out from the videos despite frequent backups and deleting.
We have bought external hard drives and a new laptop computer since the audio and video files maxed out the capabilites of the hard drive and the processor. We got three GoPro knock offs and lots of GoPro attachments. We purchased several HDMI storage cards. New selfie sticks and tripods add to the pile of camera gear we purchased for season 1. In total, I would guess the gear, hosting, and extra internet expenses abroad exceeded $1,000. When I do our financials, I’ll probably have hard numbers.
We also pay monthly hosting for the website and the podcast. 
Through January 2017, we have earned about $150 from Patreon. Obviously, the vlog and podcast are badly in the red.
Below is some new filming and podcast gear that I purchased today. I get no money from these links. Amazon is in a dispute with Louisiana about sales taxes, and I could not set up an Amazon store if I wanted to.
The content does not pay for itself in direct costs of providing podcasts or video. I get no payment for my time. I give away books which I could otherwise sell. If the costs don’t cover the costs of hosting, camera and recording gear, hard drives, podcast and website hosting, I am volunteering my money to produce content that takes a lot of my time. I can think of many better charities than the folks watching sailing videos or listening to podcasts. The demographics of my listeners and watchers are people that can mostly afford to pay for the content they consume.
That being said, I am planning on giving away berths for free that are worth many times I will collect in Patreon pledges. This is similar to my giving away 10 times more books in dollar terms than I collected in pledges. It is a tremendous value being a Patron and the rewards outweigh the pledges.

Subscribe to the Slow Boat Sailing podcast for free on iTunes and Stitcher!

The Slow Boat was struck by a whale 1,700 nautical miles from its next port and 1,800 nautical miles from its last port of call. The host Linus Wilson tells the tale. He also interviews the creators of Sailing Baby Blue. Check out their YouTube channel and blog! They sailed from Maine to the Bahamas to the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Vigin Islands, the BVI, Martinique, St. Martin, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Grenada. They did it in just two years in a 33 foot boat built in 1969. You have got to check out this inspiring story of cruising on a budget early in life! Now they are building a tiny house and exploring the U.S.A.

Find out why the Slow Boat sailed 3,500 nautical miles across the south eastern Pacific to the paradise of Hiva Oa, in the Marquesis this past December. When we hit $80 per round the world vlog episode or podcast episode, we will give away up to 2 weeks in a private berth for two to one of our Patrons. Patrons will be randomly selected based on their long-term support on www.Patreon.com/slowboatsailing. This is several thousand dollar value.

Sailing in Providencia, Colombia, Hiking El Pico, Snorkeling Crab Cay, and Morgan’s Head S1E678

This is the directors cut of the combination of episodes S1E6, S1E7, and S1E8 of the round the world vlog. The Slow Boat sails from Cayo Largo, Cuba across the Caribbean Sea to the remote island of Providencia, Colombia, a.k.a. Old Providence. Electrical sparks on the lifelines endangers the boat on the crossing. We face the legend of the pirate and privateer Captain Morgan as we enter the harbor. In this video cruising guide, we show why Providencia is a cruiser’s paradise with all the essentials within close walking distance of the dinghy landing. Free WIFI, several grocery stores, two ATMs, and many other essentials are a few steps from the dock. We show how to check in, get water, and get fuel. Stevie visits the airport. Linus fixes the generator and puts up a new board used to secure the fuel cans.

Stevie and I leave the boat to hike up the highest mountain in Providencia, Colombia, a.k.a. Old Providence. To our surprise we found a well marked and maintained trail. It was as high quality as you would find as in any U.S. national park, but we only saw one other couple hiking the trail. Compare that to the 1,000s that hike Diamondhead in Oahu every day. The views at the top of El Pico in Providencia, “The Peak’, were magnificient. You must do this hike if you visit! If you can walk a 5K, you should be up for this challenge. Just take lots of water!

The El Pico, “The Peak”, hike begins is in the Bottom House neighborhood of Providencia. It is almost on the opposite side of the town and ferry dock.

It probably takes about two hours up and one hour down. Give yourself plenty of daylight. (You could kill yourself in the dark.) There is no guard rail at the end and the path is narrow. We did not have a guide and I don’t think one is necessary. It is better to hike it when its dry otherwise the path will be muddy.

We will be running contest where our most loyal Patreon supporters can become part of our crew literally for up to two weeks as we explore the paradise islands of the South Pacific. Patrons of the round the world vlog and podcast get bonus podcast episodes and free audiobooks of How To Sail Around the World Part-Time and Slow Boat to Cuba.

They visit Crab Cay (part of Old Providence McBean Lagoon national part) by dinghy and hike and dinghy out to Morgan’s Head on Santa Catalina island to see the real pirate treasure, an unspoiled reef close to shore. There is a pedestrian bridge connecting Santa Catalina island to the main town in Providencia. Linus also visits the ruins of Ft. Warwick. Both Morgan’s Head and Ft. Warwick are a short hike from the town in Providencia and are accessible by a pedestrian bridge. Both spots are no fishing zones.

Ep. 30: Resolute Sets Sail cruises Mexico, Hawaii, and sails to Alaska with audio sample by Linus Wilson of Navigation Rules Captains’ Exam prep album

Subscribe to the Slow Boat Sailing podcast for free on iTunes and Stitcher!

Native Alaskans Erik and Meagan bought a boat in the San Fransisco Bay area and sailed it down the often unforgiving California coast to the warm waters of Mexico. It may be a surprise to the followers of their blockbuster, YouTube channel Resolute Sets Sail, what they did next. Instead of turning west to the islands of the south Pacific as is more popular or heading through the Panama canal towards the Caribbean, Erik and Meagen went on some epic month long offshore passages to Hawaii and Alaska. Learn about their problems importing their dog into Hawaii. (I could not believe it! U.S. Citizens have to jump through hoops to take their dog to Hawaii.) Learn about the travels of these low-budget adventurers under sail in their Cascade 36. They are super cool, and they make great videos!

Before we get into an interview we have an audio sample of my Navigation Rules: International and Inland (Abridged), Study Guide for USCG Captains’ and Merchant Mariner Exam on CD Baby. It is the least expensive study course for the toughest exam on the USCG captain’s exam that I know of at $9.99.

I edited this interview during my 27-day passage at sea from Ecuador to French Polynesia, which was hard because we had limited electricity, and I need to buy a newer faster computer to edit podcasts and video. After the Slow Boat was hit by a whale half-way through the 3,500 nm trip, I got much busier with managing downwind sails, autopilot, and engine bleeding problems. I’ll talk about that trip in the next episode. This episode is being uploaded in Tahiti, which has MUCH faster internet than Hiva Oa in the Marquesas. I was only in Hiva Oa for less than a week before having to come back home for work. I hope to release episode 8 of the Slow Boat Sailing YouTube channel’s round the world vlog before the next podcast.

If you are a YouTube subscriber, send me a private message on Facebook or Twitter with your USA address by Wednesday, January 11, 2017, to be in a drawing for the first ever printed copy of Slow Boat to Cuba. This is a one of a kind collectors edition of the Amazon sailing eBook bestseller on its first day on sale. I’ll show the results of the drawing in episode 8 of Slow Boat Sailing’s vlog series.

We will be running contest where our most loyal Patreon supporters can become part of our crew literally as we explore the paradise islands of the South Pacific. Patrons of the round the world vlog and podcast get bonus podcast episodes and free audiobooks of How To Sail Around the World Part-Time and Slow Boat to Cuba.
