CopperCoat Antifoul Disaster Made Good? Sailing Britican

We’ve had a long history of trying to get our CopperCoat antifoul to work. After paying an initial fee of well over $10,000 to get our boat sanded back to the gel coat and an application of Coppercoat we discovered months later that the application did not work. Our boat was full of barnacles.

CopperCoat USA then got involved with the boatyard to sort things out. Instead of sorting the whole boat out the CopperCoat USA representative had the boatyard redo various patches on the hull.

Needless to say, after sailing from the States to Trinidad, around 1700 miles, we were disappointed to find that all the patches that were redone had absolutely no barnacles but the rest of the boat was full of them.

We then pulled the boat out in Trinidad and CopperCoat sent us the paint free of charge to have yet another application. To our utter disappointment when we put the boat back in the water it was worse than before.

We knew that CopperCoat worked as the patches done under the supervision of CopperCoat USA worked. Talk about frustrating.

Based on our experiences it seemed that boatyards and even the head of CopperCoat USA didn’t quite know what they were doing. To see our video that outlines are issues in more depth, watch:

Upon seeing our results, Aquarius Marine Coatings Ltd - the manufacturers of Coppercoat (UK), contacted us and offered to once and for all solve the problem by sending a representative over. This video showcases what we hope to be our final and successful application of CopperCoat Antifoul.

CRAZY NIGHT dodging STORMS and REEFS! (Sailing SV Sarean) Ep. 78

HELP US save our hard drive and nab your very own SAILING SAREAN SWAG before our campaign ends on 11 December 2019:

NIGHT PASSAGE, crazy night dodging STORMS, FAD's & REEFS: Sometimes sailing can challenge you to the core. And it’s not always big storms that’ll get you. It can be just an average 30 knot buster when you’ve been on passage for a few days of bluewater sailing, with just the two of you to manage the boat. This week on our crossing from Vanuatu to New Caledonia we weave our way through a passage loaded with islands, FAD’s and reefs as a dark and powerful squall takes hold - then find ourselves marveling at what looks like alien lights ahead of us.

Hurricane Lorenzo aftermath.... Sailing Vessel Delos Ep.252

The Azores have a long standing tradition of sailors painting their boat names on the jetty walls before setting out to sea, and in this episode we take that tradition to heart! Little did we know the majority of the MASSIVE concrete pier would soon be smashed by Hurricane Lorenzo and have a very serious effect on the island. It was a hard place for us to leave, but after wrapping up our final Canyoning mission it was time to make the overnight sail to FAIAL and have a new set of adventures begin!

Does this look crooked to anyone else?! (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 139

The neck is all good but that seriously looks a bit wonky doesn't it ????. I'm sure its fine. We're over the moon with the good news. Join us for propeller dramas, an interview with 3 ladies who spent 60 days rowing across the Atlantic and some adventures under the Caribbean sunshine. Its great to be back in a place we can have a go at some fish. Riley is pretty excited to go spearfishing again. Cheers, Elayna.

Gulf Stream Adventures! Offshore Bahamas to Beaufort NC | Distant Shores

We're leaving the Bahamas using the Gulf Stream to make speed northbound.

02:05 Using the Gulf Stream current
04:20 Catching a big Mahi-Mahi
09:16 Leaving the dock using the current and wind to help

This is our last sail on the amazing Bahamas shallow banks as we're preparing for the passage north to Beaufort and the Chesapeake Bay. For the first time we're going to sail right up the Gulf Stream and hope to use the current to add to our speed.

We catch a large Mahi-Mahi, bake bread, and set up the sails for fast downwind passaging with the current pushing us up to 11 knots.

When we pull in to Beaufort North Carolina we demonstrate using the current and wind to help get out of the dock in a tight situation.
