Loved the tacking together guys! From 7:10 till 7:52, it actually brought tears to my eyes. Not sure why, but I love your energy and your togetherness, you guys are an inspiration. The drown shots from the Ocean Hole were fantastic! Great video, again!
Fair winds and save sailing from Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Kikas hair is so long. Perhaps she is a member of the vril society. Their females grew their hair long because they knew it would serve as an antennae to communicate with the deity.

Hello! I'm from Nassau, but my family is descended from many parts of The Bahamas. I have spent many a summer in Tarpum Bay and Rock Sound, also Harbour Island. I also have family in Exuma not sure if you're headed that way. You hung with the potcakes and used the "government pump" awesome. I am enjoying your videos and great vibes. Peace and blessings.

Kika, your hair is awesome, just enjoy it :) I do know your pain, my hair just goes into a curly orange afro, (speaking from experience) eventually, when it's long enough the weight of it will allow you more control, but you will need to let it get at least half as long as it is now more. There is a reason my nicknames in hight school were Ronnie (Ronald McDonnald) and Chewie (Chewbacca). My wife make me get regular hair cuts now.....

Kieka,
Embrace the beauty of you blackness. Everything about you is beautiful. Don't describe yourself as anything other then such. You are the original woman and from you emanates all femininity and femininity beauty. Dan. You must honor this and protect it at all times. Especially the her dignity. I agree. Keep your crown! Don't cut and don't cover.
Thomas K

After seeing all the "Don't cut your hair" comments, I just wanted to point something out:
Although the hair does really look great, looking at it is one thing, keeping it clean is another.
Big hairs need a big amount of fresh water to clean and fresh water is not always an abundant commodity on a sailboat, especially on long passages.
My wife uses a special saltwater shampoo called "SavonDeMer". It works on saltwater so you can do all your cleaning in salt water and after that just rinse with minimum fresh water.
Anyway, bit hairs = big effort to keep it :)

The editing sequence for that dive was just...jeez... four angles PLUS the drone?! And to the sound track beat too?!

That's gettin' into Casey Neistat and Peter McKinnon kinda videographic sorcery...

How much does the drag of towing your dinghy effect your speed?
Sailing Uma
Sailing Uma - 2 years ago
Not much. Speed on our boat is so variable and dependent on so many factors it's hard to really quantify any single one. Maybe half knot or so. Not really noticeable. When we're towing, you can hold the line and it feels like maybe 20-40lbs of "pull" on the line.

I'm so so sorry but I have to complain about this video. I mean, I don't think I have ever left you a negative comment before but this time I simply cannot help myself.
What is bothering me, you ask? It was too short! Or I was enjoying it so much that it seemed like it was over too quickly, but either way, another awesome video guys. I have to confess, I especially like the cute little PDAs. Little hugs and kisses once in awhile are sweet. Keep them vids coming! Love you both, and Uma.

You're beautiful Kika and your hair is amazing! I think you should let it grow, but I know long hair can get annoying. It's a lot of work but if you've got time to deal with it I say grow it HUGE! I had a waist-length ponytail for years but I'm back to a buzz cut because it's so much easier.

Dumb question, so a manual wind vane/vayne helps with the up and down swell thing? I wonder if the auto pilot and wind vane would work together. Your mane is awesome! Love your show!
Ty
Sailing Uma
Sailing Uma - 2 years ago
No, not really. The wind-vane steers the boat using the wind and water. The autopilot used electricity to accomplish the same thing. They compliment each other, but can’t be sued at the same time.

Don't cut it. If Dan said no I would stick with his opinion over anyone else. I always ask my husband if I should cut my hair. Sometimes he tells me no and other times he tells me yes. If you trust your spouse or partner why do it any other way. Again, this is my own opinion.

I love your videos and am amazed for your storytelling abilities and editing prowess that's what got me hooked on the channel originally. But the cinematic shots and angles you are incorporating into your videos have intensified the production value incredibly. Have you just learned from making videos or have you read/watch anything transformative about how to increase your production value as much as you have?

Kika, so cute... I once had a client from Brazil with a similar hair texture to your's who grew it long enough to put it in a pony tail, but the matts were often horrible. I would image they would be even worse in the constant wind. Don't know what to say about the hair length. Yes, you keep very well care of it!

I love your hair. I have 1C hair (straight, thick, doesn't hold a curl without an argument,) and spent my teenage years getting perms to try to get curls like yours. Cut it if you want a change or if it is on your nerves, but if you find a sea witch who would let us trade hair for a day, I'd be your poor unfortunate soul.

Question: I noticed you came into the anchorage tacking with the main reefed and the jib 100%. Is there a reason for this? It seems that just using the Main, reefed or not, would have made tacking a much easier operation. Does using the Jib give you more control?

Now that you have a good below deck autopilot, do you find that you use it more than your wind vane?
Sailing Uma
Sailing Uma - 2 years ago
They both have their pros and cons. The Cape Horn works very well when the wind is consistent, and it’s silent and used no power, so we use it on overnights or longer passages. Especially if we have following seas. The B&G is really convenient when we need to steer a straight line or solo reef etc. It doesn’t use too much power and is low noise, but you can still hear it, especially below decks. They really compliment each other well and we’re very glad we have both. Especially for the sailing we’ll be doing this summer.

Your production values are going up like a rocket to the Moon! The establishing shots... segues... Talk blending in perfectly with what's on the screen.

Those puppies! Shouldn't one of them be a permanent crewmember?

Now the elephant in the room: The Hair.

Kika: I well remember when Dan cut and trimmed that mane of yours. I also remember that, two episodes later, it was back to where it started. So, I won't presume either the effrontery or temerity to suggest modifications to your "do." Whatever feels right to you, my dear, is what you should wear. BTW, the quick profile shot of you at 5:45 would make desktop wallpaper. You're that lovely. Ditto the dive into the hole.

 Dan: How are the plans coming along for colonizing the Sun. Is the habitat ready for testing?
