On The Water With The Wynns...

How many of you have been on the "road" with, adventured, learned and been entertained by, those wacky Wynns as they RVd around the US, with their "earnest themed" Youtube videos?

Now, they've sold the RV, transformed from a terra firma lifestyle to a full-time water world.
THOUGHTS?

What, Wynn's on the Waves? Really had not realized they switched transport modes. They'll make it fun.

Yep, they should have fun. They entered a whole new world. The cruising life is very different from RV life. I have been doing it for for 50 years. All along the coast from the Chesapeake to Louisiana including many trips over to the Bahamas. The learning curve for them will be steep. A lot of things can happen out on the water in remote places. It will be interesting to watch them.

Ever since the Wynns posted videos of their catamaran search I've been watching youTube videos of sailboat cruising.
Looks scary when they are making the crossing from Panama to the Marquesas Islands and you are out for 3 weeks.
While I'm a little tempted to try something like this there is NO WAY my wife would entertain such an idea. Maybe just as well, I'd probably be seasick most of the time.

Kelvin, you would get through sea sickness after getting sea legs. The definition of cruising is "fixing your boat in exotic places". Boats in saltwater are in a hostile environment. They take constant maintenance.

It is interesting to watch. I came the other way. After 15 years of boating I sold the boat and got an Airstream. As long as the adventure continues....

Landing and swimming on absolutely deserted beaches is not a bad way to go.

I couldn't imagine being locked down to only shorelines. And open water is seriously boring. But different strokes for different folks!

I remember watching the Wynn's once and the guy didn't even know how to change a wheel. I wonder how they will hold up if something breaks out away from land.

TN Traveler, that looks gorgeous.

That's the kind of thing I'd like to try with an experienced person some day. Maybe even with a kayak.

I'm also looking forward to park the Airstream on the actual Beach someday.

My dad, a professional yacht captain often called a boat "Simply a smallish hole in the water lined with wood, metal, or Fiberglas into which you pour lots of money." I saw how hard he had to work to maintain the boats he worked on, and I learned a lot about keeping water out and building stuff where the walls are not straight. That said, I would never even consider owning a boat.
