Boat DIY on YouTube since 2014

Hi Guys!

A few years ago I had a dream to buy an old boat, fix her up, and become a full-time cruiser. Today I am doing just that! I started documenting the process on Youtube in 2014 while I was refitting my 1973 30 ft Albin Ballad sailboat. Since then, I’ve sold my house and purchased the boat of my dreams, Athena, a 1987 Warrior 38. Apart from my full-time job, I spend the weekends scraping, cleaning, and of course sanding...glorious, glorious sanding! I’ve been uploading videos to YouTube for five years and don’t plan to stop anytime soon. Since starting, I’ve gained a following of subscribers that encourage me to continue the refit process. When Athena is finished (hopefully) in a year and a half, I plan on moving aboard with my fiancé Ava and Icelandic Sheepdog Jokull.


Thanks for your support!
