Show Video

Good morning. Or. In our new spot here. This. Awesome, little place look at the, peaceful. Peaceful morning. Just. Not here having a coffee this morning. It's. Really, nice, I. Think. Today's project is. Going to be. Getting. Air conditioning, working. So. That is my project for. The day I'm gonna try and get the, pump installed, first and then get. Us wired up to the dock and then install. The AC units. Fun. Fun I'm. Actually looking for doing it. So. My first task this, morning is to replace this old air, conditioning, pump that's the original one on. The, boat so. I was able to get a new pump because we're in the land of where, you can just order things, and. Hopefully it'll be a straightforward thing, to swap out. It. Didn't take too. Much to get it out a little, bit of a convincing, that's the old one I. Just. Hooked this up to the dock. Turn. The power on. It's good sign. Sounds. Nice and smooth. See, if there's water coming out of the boat. Ha. Ha ha, today. If. This works everybody's gonna be so stoked then thank you. Water's. Coming out that's a good sign. Again. I've. Taken the toilet, out to make it a little, bit easier to work in here. And. Getting it out the easy part. All. Right we're. In the whole room, here, the homestretch. Just. Got to hook up the wires. We'll, give it a good, a test is. About, it's. Gotta be a hundred degrees in the boat today it is crazy. Crazy. Hot. Ok. Power. The baby on see what happens. Yeah. House. Is gonna be so happy tonight. I'm gonna get a real cold in here. I love. It like something worse finally. Right. Humble jolly. Crying, good. Job like, some time why, for huh. I don't, know cuz we're on the bottom like, it's. Hard to tell but Delos is like this. We've. Run aground at the dock. It's. Quite funny. We. Go just chucking, them off the list air, conditioning. Done. That's. A big one as a three day project. We. Did countless, boat projects. And showing them all here would probably make this video a few hours long, so. I think a little montage, would work well. Well. To my office. Check. That one off the list. Okay. Thank. You. Okay. I. Actually, ended up buying a new antenna. The. Time has come to, see, if everything, fits, with a new fridge. Morning. So. It's. Actually not that early it's about 9:00 or something like that but. We. Have, another. Good, morning here in Dulles and. Me. And Brian I guess what I said today Thursday. So. We leave in two days. Which. Feels absolutely. Crazy. It's. A, lot of things going on but a lot of good things and. I feel say that we are pretty well prepared and, a lot of the sticky notes have moved from. The to do side to the downside, so we've done really well and ice. Made us a really nice, acai, bowl breakfast. Because, I love, this new breakfast, is my new favorite good. Start. Of the morning. I'm. Trying to make sure that bellows, is like. Shipshape. For mr. ad when he takes over, for. A couple months and. This is the needle. Valve for our water maker which has been, really. Giving, us trouble it's been hard to adjust and, we've, been having a lot of problems getting the pressure to come up so I took the whole thing apart thinking, that I would be able to get a new. Needle valve high-pressure needle valve for the system and I've, like, called, a bunch of places I spent all day yesterday driving. Around and nobody has this particular, part and, I think it has to come from the. Manufacturing, threads. So. That's. Not gonna happen within the next two days so I've been. Basically. Like using a fine. Sandpaper. To, get rid of all the corrosion and trying even up all the surfaces. Clean. It up so, that maybe. It'll work oh boy, that's. My challenge the slack. Look, at that it's like a robot, yeah.

So This is the piece of rebuilt and cleaned up. Yep. Fine. Into. My hole here. Okay. Guys it can you turn it on. Well, it took it's. A couple hours later I, basically. Had to take it apart again redo. Everything again a little bit different way some. Different fittings so, it, wouldn't leak but I got all adjusted, it's putting out maximum, output now and it. Is not leaking. So. That is a huge improvement. Let's, look at it stays that way. Okay. On to the next and last project. Perla. Hello. Trying to turn that, it's. Really stuck huh. So. That's the Fuhrer, for. The mizzen that's the, piece that we always turn right here I. Don't. Know. We've. Been noticing that people have been struggling taking, the mizzen out yeah, and so, I took this piece out figuring. That this had never been lubed. Yeah. It's probably just like rock solid grease in there so. I'll, see if I can twist this off without the special tool. And. Go from that this. Thing is really seized, on here I've tried turning. It clockwise. Counterclockwise. I, think, it's just seized. Corrosion. In there so what I'm gonna do is. Want. To try some heat I, try. The torch see. If that'll break it. So. I've decided to, not. Risk damage, in the entire unit. By. Hammering, and heating anymore I'm gonna use, the hacksaw, to cut what, I think of these caps off because. I know I can. Either make new caps or. Reweld. The old ones back together if I do a nice cut. All. Right so this thing, has been an absolute, nightmare, it's. All seized together and there's, no. Instructions. On how it comes apart already looked online and this. Is the part that's stuck, it's, an incredibly, simple thing the water is allowed to come in through this thing and just drain out. My. Hacksaw, job did the trick and shortly after I was able to get threads, to break loose finally. Releasing, that stubborn, end cap after. A few phone conversations. I found a machine shop they could do a luminol, fabrication. And welding the. Fabrication, cost at the machine shop was, less than $300.

Which. Ended up saving thousands. Of dollars and, countless hours. Trying. To track down a new Furler from France, ok. So this is the old what I did. Look. Beautiful. Wow. Nice. That's. Awesome. Yeah. A few. Weeks later on the passage to Bermuda, Alex, sent through this clip of my handiwork doing, its job so. You're letting it out and dragging, it out oh my god, way better, this. Is 90-day. Good job Brian, this. Is this is like seized in here and you had to be like. Oh. My, god. Okay. Yeah. That's crazy. Making. Great progress on the endless Beaubourg, we, decided to take a day off and invite our patrons, over for, a little Delos open house and pool party. I. Love. Listening to the reactions, of people whether, we invite them on board sometimes. People tell me I look shorter, in person, about. Half of people say, Delos looks smaller while, the other half are surprised. At how room is she is I blame. It on the fish islands. No. Matter what people say it's, always cool to see their reactions, in person, after so much time spent on the other side of the screen. That's. All of our. People. We've met people living on the boat it's our Wall of Fame / Ames and one. Guy's. Got a lot of stuff down here. We. Had everybody put their name in a hat and we're gonna start pulling some names and giving them some cool stuff going, thank you so much for coming, by to, Jim's. House good, / Jim. Babli. Michaela, and Josie his wife have, opened up the doors to have Della's little bit doc and, do. A shitload, of work as you can see all, right let's just get on with it then first name DG. Back. Andy. Morgan baby, taco. We've. Got Tyler, and. We, have coming up you see that big tube over there that's. A 16-man, life raft it's, nobody has seen a life raft go off the floor. Life. Raft shop gave us this at a spec unit to inflate just, for fun since, it could no longer be serviced I think. It's safe to say and stole the show with. Caz. Approaching, the 7 month mark in the pregnancy who, is time for us to pack our bags and, set off to sweep for the start of the next chapter, of our lives. They. Has come where. Me and thought Brummie. Applied where me and brian fly. Out this sweden, man. It. Has been a, couple, of crazy. Crazy, intense, weeks, just. Since we've arrived into florida. The dock here at Jim's house we've barely been tearing, through the boat work but. I, think, we've done a really good job and Delos is shipshape, she's. All ready for senior. Brady, and, Holly Chandra, Azul to take over the reins. Yeah. Man what a trip you know I was just thinking about all the miles sailed. On Delos all the oceans crossed all the continents visited, and I've. Always been on board and so, for, me to think about her cross in an ocean, without. Me on board is like it, takes a little bit of getting used to but I. Have, complete faith in, Brady. And Alex and, the, crew they'll have on board so. We're all packed. And, it. Feels. Extremely. Strange. I guess it. Just won't be the, same anymore and, that's good but, it's also scary and, I. Also find that every, time a, huge, chapter kind of closes, I do, feel sad about it and. This. Is a huge chapter that is closing, and we use packed up all our stuff and, like, emptied or our drawers, and, we're not gonna be on tellus anymore, for like quite. A few months, like for a long time. And. It, just feels. Strange. And, we see you. It's, gonna be out it's gonna be out of there. Well. This feels really weird so. Human, as well. You. Step back over that rail yeah, gonna. Be some very different. Oh. It's. Good. Yeah. You you will say Vezina between. First, over here though. I. Think. So. By. My Delos. See. You soon. New. So. Brian. And Karen are about to head, to the airport and like 30. Minutes or so and. Just. Taking. A minute to like chill. Out and be alone in the boat for a minute. It's. Just kind of a strange feeling. We've, definitely like separated, before but. More. Of the, feeling is they're. Gonna go and have a baby and this. Is the start of a new chapter for. Everybody. And. And. It's. Very. Sad that, a, new chapter is starting but it's. Probably like 10% sadness.

That The, new chapter starting and, like. 90%. Amazing. Happiness. And excitement for, what's gonna be coming in the future I. Don't. Really know what to say though I don't really know how to. Wrap. My head around. It's. Never gonna be that just like the same of the, four of us around. It's. Always gonna be something different. But very. Good in a different way. It's. Good though my. Dad always said it life. Runs, and chapters, and I. Don't. Know I don't, know what to say right now but, we'll. Let it sit in for a few days let's, see what happens. You, know it in that bag brain this, that yeah my, girlfriend I've made my wife dr. Forbes Riley. Doesn't know one it, takes a woman did you pack your eyes it yeah. The boy. Take, care of that, Oh. We'll. See you on the Internet. All. Right guys. Brady, and Alex I love you guys and I know you would do really well and, have. A good safe sale and, we will see you in Europe. By. Ethnics. Brady. And Alex settle into the back cabin, pick. Up the new crew including. The Dell of scholarship, winner and prepare. To set sail across, the Atlantic, oh. Wait. Ellis tried weave torture tested these new long-sleeve. Sun, resistant, shirts on Dulles who are happy to say they totally, wasted our abuse Qasr. Did the design of dello selling on the globe and the, stretch material is, old so, comfortable, they're, available in men's and women's sizes to fit all and the, printed limited, quantities, so get them while they're hot. My. Toes. Dry. And actually packed, like one t-shirt, I was like I think you people hung. T-shirts. So. I I added, two more so now there's three t-shirts I, think that's pretty good no. Business. In the front party in, the back.

Show Video


oh yeah ... after spending couple of weeks .. arrived at 239.... and more on later .. happy sailing...now on to info video and others .. cheers!! been awesome and very informative video ..

What an amazing episode.  I mean wow does my heart ache for you all and this change, but it brings great things with it. Been watching you all since like Ep 20 something. You were my first sailing vlog, the one I fell into by accident, and you started a whole thing and I will always have a big place in my heart for the Delos crew for that and all the love and adventure that's crossed my screen. I love many of the sailing vlogs I subscribe to now, but I still think you all have a really special vibe and flow on board and it's been our pleasure to go along with you. This is surely a difficult transition for everyone, but isn't it awesome to have had such an amazing experience, that you can't imagine having to turn a corner and make such a big change, but life would be less special without change. To Brady, who I know probably took this change hardest (because you have such a big heart and you so beautifully wear it on your shoulder) - I lost my brother many many years ago, five days before his 21st B-day, and although that loss has never left me, watching you and Brian and the adventure your love and brotherhood has taken you on together, is so unique and special, it's just fills my heart to watch and enjoy. You guys are beautiful to watch having lived these years and all this time with each other. So Congrats Kahza and Bri-on, Looking fwd to new adventures. Love you all

Best wishes

I'm going to start counting how many times they say "like". So annoying.

I have been following Delos for years, almost from the beginning. I've enjoyed watching the changing crew, sailing, new places, new people. I really appreciate how the 4 leaders of the Delos tribe have shared so much of their lives with us, opened up your home and shown us so much of the world through your eyes. I can only imagine how surreal it must be for Brian and Karen to fly off, leaving Delos behind, to start a new chapter in your lives and I look forward to your return. Sailing SV Delos is my favorite "show" and, I must admit, I have not truly really appreciated this adventure for what it is until Brady's monologue in this episode brought it home for me. This is more than reality TV, more than a Youtube channel, you welcome the entire tribe into your lives and share so much with us in such an incredibly beautiful way.

When you guys popped the life raft I was thinking, wow, you could tote around a lot of beers in that thing. Gives a new meaning to life raft.

You could try soaking it in vinegar for a while to see if it will eat the corrosion. Works on zippers!

I'm so happy for you! Brian and Karin, you may miss the boat today, but once you've become parents you won't miss your boat, you'll just be anxious to show your kid the boat. I'm a boatbuilder from sweden and since 2015 i've been watching you. Dreaming during winter about the warm places you've visited and during summers i've wished for you to be able to experience the swedish archipelargo in a small wooden boat with just a tent and an alcohol-stove. Today i recently became father and i'm already making plans what boats to build with my son to learn him sailing. Karin, best of luck for both of you.

Good luck, God bless! I almost dropped a tear!

Quite an adjustment. I was doing fine until she left the boat and started crying. It's been quite an encouragement to me follow your guys.


I cried too.

Too sentimental to watch it to the end! Good luck and see you soon, all five of you!!!

Having followed this amazing channel for years I have to ask the question......has anybody found his leg yet?? :-)

Thanks for using my music! 0:00 ✌

Nothing worth having comes easy. Enjoy the Family Life Brian and Karin, it's ALL worth it :) Keep up the great work Brady and Alex, I can't wait to see what you guys have in store for us. Love, Joy and Prosperity xxxx P.S. Show us that beautiful baby already :-P

All the best with the baby Kazza and Brianne. So look forward to when you rejoin Delos. Go Blue & Brady, enjoy while big bro is is not in the know; have fun and and let it all hang out. The tribe is hanging on the next months vids to see how it all pans out :)


Sad and happy

I disagree with their decision, I believe the baby should be born American. It will be better for the baby to be born American

I love you all so dearly. Thank you for taking me along on your adventures. These peeps literally have "baby on board" this vid is one bad day. https://youtu.be/qLbqX7JAjjU However they have a bunch of videos of GREAT days at sea with a newborn. I hope that this helps you as perhaps a "what to expect" video series for sailing with an infant. We (my family and I) can hardly wait to meet your new crew member. I wish all of you the best of everything and lack for nothing. Love Love Love

Good byes are tough. Caught a few leakers on this side of the screen. But what an adventure that lies ahead. Kids change everything!...it's a good ride.

So Brady has to bake a banana cake with Blue too!

Brian Your going to be such a Great Father, I envy your unborn stowaway, for the journeys as yet unplanned yet there in Destiny for y'all to enjoy... You are a Good Man Brian, so few like you left who was born of the Great American Way, You are the Physical Manifestation of What makes America Great, Good wishes for an easy Birth, give us a Healthy offspring and we will all be delighted for the both of you, God Bless the Boat its Sails its Keel and the fine Real people who maintain it... x Your up there with Joseph for a practical Dad who works well with his hands...

I am so Blessed for your LOVE HEART, you can never waste too much love, there is always some left to give away, My God is Your God x

Leaving on a jet plane :-( https://youtu.be/F2m--R3J6f4

Life is full of chapters, how true. Wise words and many more to come. Thanks for all the life, love and passion you share.

The most epic time from Thailand to Asention Island with Madagascar South Africa and all the Indian Ocean adventures was Epic love you guys and God Bless thanks for sharing all your Adventures felt like I've been part of the crew thank you.

Started following in New Zealand. I wish we could go back in time and do it all over again. Thank you!

This is the first show I’ve ever watched. Did I miss anything? Congratulations on the baby. I’m sure this new chapter of your of your lives will easily be as fulfilling and rewarding. Peace.

Not gonna lie... there were tears over here. But- looking forward to the next chapter(s).

Wow, that sucks. Wish you luck guys.

the dog said, "threw a halloween party. it landed at the bottom of the stairs." ~ tenderbastard

Lord willing all goes well blessings to you all and delos

You guys, not disrespect intended or implied, but I love your dad he's a total goof. I don't know the procedures he's had to endure, but he is a solid beacon, goofy beacon, but still solid.

Sad! Happy! Hopeful. Looking forward to the next adventure.

Got the orange shirt - love it! Feel like this is the end of "Friends or Cheers" TV show hope not!

Brian and Karin, The emotions you displayed when leaving Delos for Sweden were very touching. Delos is way more than a boat to you guys. It had taken on a human persona and shows by your goodbyes that she is loved by both of you. With that in mind, I predict there will never be a Delos 2. The bond you have is just too strong.

I remember when the Delos "list of things to do" was on the wall! Now it is the "wall of fame", and the project list is reduced to a poster-board!!!!

All in all the best one yet. That is life, ebbs and flows

Brian has some big shoes to fill. I can’t wait to see Brady and Blue rise to the challenge. Sending good vibes from the rainy Pacific North West

Love you guys ❤❤❤

I cried when Kazaa stepped over the rail

I'm sitting here watching you guys with all your mixed emotions because of the changes coming. But a couple years from now you won't be able to picture being on the boat without that little Angel. She will bring you guys even closer together then you already are! She's one lucky little girl!... I can see it now, Daddy AND Uncle Brady are gonna be wrapped around her little finger!
