Show Notes

Here’s the zinc on the Max-Prop propeller…
…and here’s where the shaft zinc’s *supposed* to be

St. Pete Boat Show

Okay, so I plan on seeing you at the St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show in January! I expect that Latitudes & Attitudes will be throwing their usual cruisers’ party on Saturday the 22nd, if history is any guide…so I definitely plan to be there for that part. If it’s the same as before, you need to be inside the venue before closing time. (5pm?) More details forthcoming, BUT ALSO…

VIP Patrons Meetup

I also plan on having a little meetup for our How Not To Sail Patreon Patrons on Thursday, January 20th…so if you’ve been thinking about joining the Patreon crew, this is a perfectly fine excuse to climb aboard!

We’re #1…!!!

Well…we were #1. And How Not To Sail could get there again! If you’re looking for a gift for that certain someone, may I recommend a certain book? Get How Not To Sail HERE (Also, if you’ve already got the book…and enjoyed it enough to leave a nice 5-star review, I’d be most grateful for that, too!!! And major thanks if you already have!) I notice that the other books at the top of these categories have hundreds of reviews. I probably should ask for more reviews on the podcast…but I figure you can only say so many things at once. 😝

Our Friend Maxi

Thanks to Maxi Frini for his excellent mixes this year! If you need any audio services—or just want to say Hello—you can find him at

Another Podcast For You

In case you’ve already binge-listened to all of the How Not To Sail episodes, you might enjoy listening to my buddy Captain Wettig’s podcast, the Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast. Not because I’m a guest on Episode 125 or anything, but because Captain Jeffrey Wettig’s always a great listen. It’s like sitting across from a good friend at the pub, as he talks to a cool guest. And maybe they have a beer or too, metaphorically speaking. Who knows? And I mean, don’t you want to have a beer with him?

Upcoming Episodes

Oh, yes, I’ve got several podcasts brewing in the hopper… Some of them require more heavy lifting than others, but a couple that you’re likely to hear soon:
  • Our Patreon friends Sondra and Jimmy make a Gulf crossing and learn a number of lessons on How Not To Sail.(I LOVE the idea of this… I hear plenty of my own “learning experiences.” I’m really stoked to share this one.)
    It is normal to desire mutiny. The key is not to act on it. –Sondra Lee
