But when the excitement has dipped on your sailboat project and you're stuck in a rut, how do you motivate yourself? We answer three of your questions in this week's episode. Time-codes: 01:39 - Let's see you cooking! 12:24 - Can we have Millie update? 15:18 - I've lost my motivation, can you help?

There are times when we have lost our mojo and sense of urgency over the past couple of months. Not being able to make long-term plans (even short and medium plans!) can weigh heavily...

In a cruising world dominated by catamarans and light-displacement boats, the ketch rig seems almost antiquated among the YouTube generation. But if you’re serious about off-shore sailing, the ketch rig has proven its worth time and time again, even by today’s standards. So, is the best sailboat to sail around the world a ketch? We explain why we think so. For overall balance, performance, handling and comfort, a ketch is difficult to beat. Out here in the offshore cruising world, ketches are a popular alternative to other rigs because those smaller sails are easier to manage. This makes the ketch a great choice for couples, older sailors, liveaboards, families and solo sailors . For short-handed sailing across long distances while facing rough waters and heavier winds, the small sails on a ketch are simple to handle.  @Amel Yachts Notre voilier ketch préféré! - https://youtu.be/TSsEHkDm1X4 Peace, fair winds and stay safe!

👉 World Health Organisation Mythbusting: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/myth-busters We have been hearing stories from cruisers in far-flung places about how they are coping with living in isolation. So is isolation easier on a sailboat? In theory we should be well equipped and experienced enough to get through the measures currently in force around the world. But is it really better to be on a boat right now? We compare being in isolation on a sailboat with the obstacles faced by landlubbers. Jamie and Behan of @Sailing Totem joined us to mull over our peculiar situations and we soon realised that living on a sailboat brings its own set of challenges. Some are finding it more difficult than others. As always, thanks for watching our videos, every view helps get us noticed and our work shown to a wider audience.

We are isolated in our new "home", locked in with the big boats at Sutera Harbour Marina, Borneo. To be honest we can't think of a better place to be right now: safe, friendly, beautiful and remote. But before we arrived here, there was one last night of freedom at beautiful Pulau Tiga, a tiny man-made resort island off the coast of Sabah.

This chill out music mix is a journey into sound. And an epic 4k drone footage adventure through the Mentawai surf islands of Sumatra. For a free download of the audio version, click here: https://followtheboat.com/chill-out-music-mix-2020/ The project started as a simple music mix using some of the chill-out, ambient electro tunes we've showcased in previous episodes. But then we decided to introduce a few new ones. And then we thought, why not add some of the stunning Mavic 2 Pro drone footage which never made it into our episodes? So we created this ambient journey to kick back to and watch, listen or do both. It is a true reflection of our progress through the Mentawai Islands, starting at Asu, through the Mentawais, around to Krakatoa and finishing in Jakarta.

👉 Filmed before the worldwide emergency. World Health Organisation busts the myths 👈 https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/myth-busters One of the biggest headaches for cruisers in SE Asia is the sheer number of fishing boats at work close to land and off-shore, anything from one-man canoes to smoking trawlers. The question is how to avoid fishing nets on a sailboat? We've been sailing in these waters for six years, but we first learned tactics to keep clear of nets and lines back in 2010 when we sailed the Red Sea and Arabian Sea to India. 💬 Join FTBMates if you'd like to get to know us better. Win stuff, get free gifts and talk directly to us anytime: http://followtheboat.com/ftbmates/ Before the current situation kicked off, we were sailing from Miri in Sarawak to Labuan in Sabah. Simpler times? Maybe, but Liz was recovering from a back operation and Millie was getting sicker by the day. This is when the stress began for us. 👉 REAL-TIME SERIES: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoE3FmplhAXNmjbg07i5Sj3MtxuSvhHiB Please SUBSCRIBE and ring the bell for notifications, it helps us get noticed!

There are many methods of fishing in the South China Sea, from a single line to vast nets carried between two boats. Sometimes nets are just left to drift with a small float on either end. Sailing can become a real assault course in many stretches of water here.

We're all separated at the moment, so watch and listen to this uplifting song of hope to bring us a little closer together. It will make you smile and cry. It's also a bloody good melody performed with panache!

👉This episode was filmed before the worldwide emergency👈 Would you have surgery in Asia? Undergoing surgery in Malaysia or anywhere in the world you happen to be sailing is daunting. If it's not your own country, finding a hospital or a doctor, trusting that person's judgement and going into the operating theatre are hurdles that as a cruiser you have to be prepared to jump. When an insect bite on Liz's back turned septic and didn't respond to on-board antibiotics we knew we needed to see a doctor fast. It was deep, needed cutting out, dressing properly and a good course of strong antibiotics. We continue "Roy's Rope Tutorials" at Miri Marina, this time it's how to make an eye splice with three strand rope. And we sail out of Miri to anchor in a swell that keeps Jamie up all night. 👉 REAL-TIME LOCKDOWN SERIES: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoE3FmplhAXNmjbg07i5Sj3MtxuSvhHiB 💬 Join FTBMates if you'd like to get to know us better.
