Ep. 27: Sailing Vessel Prism Cruises the Pacific Coast of Mexico and Central America Interviewed by Linus Wilson

September 28, 2016

In this episode we talk to the John and Shannon from Sailing Vessel Prism. Prism is a 33-foot Hans Christian sailboat. They had sailed from Berkeley, California to Costa Rica when I caught up with them in June 2016. (The Slow Boat was in Panama and the internet was not the best for this interview.)  Support their great videos on Patreon. Shannon and John cruise inexpensively and like to take their time.

 

John was a professional videographer for TV, and he gives some tips on making great video on our bonus episode for our Patreon supporters.

I also talk about HaveWindWillTravel.com‘s  video “#75: How to Get Your Wife to Go Cruising”. Annie Dike from episode 23 says that her fans ask here that question all the time.

Ep. 26: Abandoned, 119 Days Adrift with John Glennie Interviewed by Linus Wilson

August 28, 2016

John Glennie's boat was adrift for 119 days upside-down before he and three other men landed on Great Barrier Island in New Zealand. This is the record for the most days adrift in a cold climate and is likely the record for the most days adrift by a sailing yacht crew. His boat the Rose-Noelle capsized in violent storm on the way to Fiji from the South Island of New Zealand. In this podcast, we hear the first 30 minutes of that over 2.5 hour conversation about the ordeal. It contains important lessons about survival at sea. In that long conversation, Glennie said he could not properly tell his story in his co-authored book The Spirit of the Rose Noelle because he was suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) when it was being written. The 119 days at sea are the subject of the feature film Abandoned available on Amazon or Netflix.  The first 30 minutes of the conversation with Glennie are in the podcast. The second 30 minutes are free to Patreon subscribers as a bonus episode. The full conversation about Glennie's story of survival at sea is on CD Baby and should be available on iTunes as a single or album entitled Abandoned: 119 Days Adrift, a conversation with John Glennie the captain of the Rose-Noelle by Linus Wilson

 

 

Also check out my new study guide entitled Navigation Rules: International and Inland (Abridged), Study Guide for Uscg Captains' and Merchant Mariner Exams.  Episode 6's South Pacific Weather with Met Bob has became an Album on iTunes.

Ep. 21: Checking the Slow Boat into Panama, Port Captains, Immigration, and Agents in Colon a Discussion by Linus Wilson

June 22, 2016

Checking into Panama was not easy or quick.  In this episode, I explain how I and the Slow Boat skipper ended up over $400 poorer and made two trips into Colon over four days and four government office visits including paying an agent. In my experience, both the immigration officer and Cristobal Port Captain refused to process my completed paperwork. I muse whether the government officials financially benefit from boater's employment of agents to facilitate the check in process in Colon, Panama. I hope they do not, but their behavior suggests they may.

I spent over $50 on internet in Panama to bring episode 20 to you. That does not include my podcast and website hosting expenses. It is not free to create a podcast. Help out if you can.
