    Hey people, sorry about the wait, I've been busy setting up my new anchor position and dealing with some rust.

    Here's episode 4, in which I encounter a light gale around morning time, and reach 7.4 knots SOG! Later that day I find some chafe on the sails, which worries me as I am still only 4 days into the passage at this point.


    Episode #4 - Sailing at 7 knots in 4 meter seas!

    In today's episode I have a pretty serious failure of the Hydrovane. 

    Episode 3 - Wind-Pilot Woes


    Of course, my solutions to the problem while at sea are temporary, I will be working on more permanent solutions soon.

    Episode one and two finally out. 

    Sailing Solo Across the Atlantic #1

    Sailing Solo Across the Atlantic #2

    Apologies for the low quality video in the first episode, it was tricky to film. Episode two is better.

    I'll be making a concurrent series of videos where I analyse the problems I faced, and my plans to fix them in the long term. So won't be discussing those issues for now as I have more to add to those subjects in later videos.

    Congratulations!!! Glad was a successful trip and will have a look at your videos as you release them... once we've watched your back catalogue.

    Welcome to Land again, I've seen your channel on YT in passing when doing a search for "Junk Rig" as needed research on the subject as when I saw a project boat with a JR come up for sale, just at the moment I was looking for a project... so we now have said project!

    It's on the hard in Spain and we live in Italy, but it'll be an adventure.. so looking forward to seeing how your JR handled the crossing!

    Stay well and safe!!

    Hey, thanks! Congrats on the purchase.

    You have a tough boat in Maya.
    I would suggest not spending too much on "trimmings" and keeping your total investment at or below 25k Sterling.
    In that regard consider that not everything has to be "marine grade".
    The quicker you can get Maya back out on the water the better.
    Cosmetic work, especially interior, can be done over time.

    A Tough boat we hope in how she is built and what she is built of we hope!

    Thanks for the tip, excluding running costs of moorings, insurance etc the aim/plan is to be well under that figure.

    Safety, learning and enjoying her are the top priorities for us. We aim to get her back in the water and to Italy with only all the safety items, legally required bits and upgrades done. Making her as seaworthy as is possible, all the cosmetics and interior will be done over time whilst we sail and enjoy her, I am really fortunate and lucky that due to personal circumstances I have no shortage of time for the next 12 months, so she is my project for me to be devoted to this year (Covid dependent of course to get her out of Spain!!)

    Being a time-served Agri Mechanic, not alot will likely be "marine grade" unless it really needs to be...

    Thanks for the welcome Hans-Erik. We feel we were pretty fortunate as especially after the survey she was exceptional value for what we finally paid.

    She does need alot of work, but aside from getting larger pieces of timber inside to do some of the linings she will be fairly easy to sort most of the items. The wiring and plumbing are luckily relatively easy for me (fingers crossed) and it will be the woodwork that creates the biggest headaches!

    It will all be part of the adventure and I hope to keep an update running on the Forum so anyone interested can follow along and offer advice to complete JunkRig newbies!

    Congratulations Justyn I see you bought Maya.

    As I suspected she would, she came down substantially in price from the ambitious 40,000 Pounds originally being asked here on the JRA Swap, Sell or Buy forum.

    I wish you great pleasure and many miles of enjoyment.

    But I'm trying not to spoil any content from the passage videos I made, which I shall be uploading to my YouTube as soon as I'm  finished with the editing.


    Cheers,
