Aaronshack ,

Love the story line.

By far one of the best podcast discoveries I’ve made! Thank you Capt’n, looking forward to listening to every new episode!

Very professionally produced. But…

More meat less fat. More story, less rote intro and exit. Feed me your wisdom, cause I am chocking on the production cheese.

DesignGnome ,

Have a boat and lost your sense of humor?

Amazing podcast for those who have a boat, want a boat or think they want a boat . Provides support for the emotional and financial rollercoaster of sailboat ownership. The podcast also reminds us of the beauty of sailing and how it is 100% worth it.
