Top 10 signs I’m watching way too much sail life 1. Anything tedious is now called a “fiddlely bits”. 2. Cleaning my house is now called “Oh glorious” cleaning. 3. I address my team at work with “The astute among you” will have noted ... 4. I’ve started calling Insulation ... “inCHulation”. 5. I accidentally called my own dog jokull. 😬 6. Every completed project is followed with a “Tadaa”!! 7. I’ve started ending my phone calls with, that’s “Enough yammering on”. 8. I ask “the great hive mind” for advice. 9. I’ve started wearing colorful, pocket, short sleeve, colored, button downs. 10. “Pretty dang spiffy” is now the new work standard. I look forward to these videos all week!!

Someone with more money than me please order him a replacement interior portlight trim piece for the one that's been cut. I mean, he moved an entire wall to expose that portlight after all...

I'd love to see you rework your outro tiles. I've noticed (since I've watched your channel for years) there is so much information on the screen that I've never once clicked a "watch next" video. They get lost in all the text that is on your outro template. It would be so much more effective to have a clean outro tile template and not post all your social media text. If you want links to your social media just add them as buttons in your template. That way the 2 videos you are promoting viewers watch next will stand out much more. Also, black is really not an ideal color of this type of template. It's a simple fix. You can make a free outro template using Canva's free version in just a few minutes. Download it as an MP4. Then do your normal routine of adding what videos you want to display in SEpost Studio. I think this simple thing would add so much more value to the outro than the current configuration. All the best.

I have a suggestion that might help your 'orange peeling'. When I'm working on my resin jewelry I use a Bic lighter, and go over all the resin, lightly, to get the air pockets out. It might work nice for you.

So I just realized something. I missed last week's video. So I got a full hour of SailLife today. With the commercials, I got a TV show called the SailLife. Welcome to The Sail Life! Yeyyyyyy! It's time to play the music It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet Jokull on the SailLife Show tonight.

orange peel effect appears when the paint is too cold when applied to the material. It worth putting the paint can to a bowl of hot water (the temperature of hot water you get from a household tap) before you start painting.

Mads, you need to wear a dust mask when you're cutting/routing/sanding wood, especially if it's MDF (composite). Also any time you mix West 406, as it's extremely dangerous to breath silica dust.

I know others have mentioned ways to camouflage the gap in the port light trim but do you still have the trim pieces for the port light you removed in the head? You could always cut a couple of pieces of aluminum to fit the gap over the nav desk. For that matter if you have access to someone with a welder, you could cut the pieces, and hand them over to somebody to weld them up for you and not have to replace the trim.

An other way to seal those portlights than butyl, is that normal household window soft rubber gasket tape available from any local hardware store. It will flex with the boat and is 100% water tight. And takes no time to change if ever required... just a tip...

We have portlights like those, they were installed in 1997 and are still in pristine condition. The Gebo after service is also very good in case you needed a part.

We waited all week and before we know it, we are waiting for next week. Forgot to mention, we scored a Garmin chart plotter in the laundry recycling corner. This is a discontinued model and when I got it to fire up, I couldn't believe how good it was. So simple to get around the menus and operate. I'm officially cursing the stuff we have on board made by a guy called Ray.

Okay, I watch too many sail boat refit videos ! I have come to the conclusion the the best thing to use when bedding a port light is butyl tape. Why ? Because it and all other sealants/caulks WILL EVENTUALLY FAIL ! With butyl removing the port light and butyl tape and cleaning before re-bedding is much easier than any other sealant/caulk. Maybe butyl does not last as long, but replacing it is so much easier !

When your trim is too short, make the overlap at an angle. This way, no matter the movement you will never see a gap...if one long piece ends up being a bit of a pain to find. Keep up the hard work

Port-light frame with cut out for missing bulkhead.... I'm betting the one flaw on Athena right above the nav station is going to gnaw at you. So I'm starting a pool, "on which upcoming Sunday" will we see C&C action with a piece of aluminum for a new port-light frame?

As an unemployed lazy bum (like the rest of us retired cruisers) you can get so much more boat work done in a week. Enjoy that while it lasts since once you and your lovely lady move in together and cast off the lines you will never again be as productive as you are right now. Speaking from experience here...

Mads, here in Western Australia, we add a drop of black paint tint to any white can of paint to prevent yellowing. If getting our ceilings painted, we ask for WA White. It doesn’t change the colour, and is obvious if it isn’t done. Prior to my purchasing my home, someone patched 2sq m of the ceiling and used plain white. That yellowed significantly vs the rest of the ceiling. All the best. Loved all your videos since the beginning. ⛵️😊
