    Hola Jason, I have been reading your old rv information about your 2011 Monaco Vesta 32 and I came across a statement that you had your engine re-programmed to Update Engine Codes to increase the Horsepower from 260 hp to 300 hp.
    Where did you get this done and how much did it cost you?
    Can you please send me the name and contact info on the shop that did this work for you?
    I have come across a used 2011 Monaco Vesta 32, that I am interested in, which has the 260 hp engine and
    I'd like to do as you did, and increase it to 300 hp.
    Your help would be greatly appreciated.
    I look forward to visiting with you.
    Enjoy Your Day Tom
    P.S. Please respond to me via my email address below. Many Thanks

    We are looking at purchasing a boat in Florida and we were wondering if you liked your surveyor? If so we would love to know who you used. We are looking in the Miami area.

    Inspiring stuff and good times! Been a long time watcher of your travels, and have been working on a similar work/travel lifestyle. If you need help with electronics on your boat, let me know. I might be able to help out.

    Thinking about doing a cat, and my big concern is having A.C. while not at the dock.
    Have you run into anyone using this type of A.C.?

    What type do you have and what are your thoughts?

    Normally I do not contact sites I see on the web, but you kids seem to people I would enjoy getting to know.
    First, I am going to give the photographer a bit of advice. When you are underwater, scan rarely or slowly. I want to see what is going on, what is there.
    One of the reasons I like your presentation is that you are talking, explaining, reaching out to me. I have been following SV Delos for a few months and have watched the improvement of their videos from Mexico to Madagascar. What they lack in their presentation is a sense of warmth, a sense of connection,/inclusion. A lot of the time I view the people, the action as a voyeur, an outsider. The few times I am noticed, included, I am often being mugged, clowned. With your videos I feel a sense of connection, of interest, of inclusion. Great work.
    I am an old geezer who sails the oceans in my recliner. I was a commercial fisherman at 11, in the Navy from 17 to 21 and then did a year in the Merchant Marine. One of the 'likes' of your videos is your lack of vulgarity. I have heard and used enough vulgar language (ten years a prison guard/sergeant at San Quentin followed by ten years a booking officer at the Sacramento County Rio Consumnes Correction Center) that I am not offended by words. I have a far larger vocabulary, many more adjectives and adverbs now than I did when I was younger. In addition is the fact that such language is no longer shocking to a post Victorian society, so the juvenile pleasure of shocking adults is no longer a reward.
    I enjoy your work. It is of solid journeyman craftsman.

    Dear Wynns,

    Given the very expensive and poor bandwidth connectivity you have experienced so far (I am watching chronologically and 4-5 months behind), would it make sense to snail mail 5-10GB thumb drives back to someone "on the team" back in the states to upload? Sure, this might delay the posts but you guys are not daily vloggers (videos are already delayed) and it would spare you several hours of time chained to the table at a cafe.

    Maybe it's worth an experiment?

    Love the channel.

    All the best,
    Ryan

    Greetings from Minnesota! My boyfriend and I love your videos and we were wondering if you could answer several questions for us .

    You've spoken so highly about JustCatamarans and Kent and we were wondering is there someone specific as a point of contact for finding a broker? We are hoping to get into a Cat in about 2 months and are looking for recommendations for Brokers.

    We are curious as to what kinds of dishes/pots/pans, tupperware/storage containers, do you use a lot of glassware or plastic, how do you keep everything secure when in rough seas...Regarding dishes, do you use ceramic or plastic? Do you have issues with things breaking or falling in the cupboards when in rough seas? Can you show a video of the interiors of your cupboards to show how everything is stored or even shoot a video during rough seas to show how things stay secure?

    Another question we have is how do you display family photos in your cabin? Do you use frames, digital frames, laminate photos, tape them to the walls...? We are curious about how photos weather in the humidity.

    Regarding the beds and the shapes of them, what types of sheets do you use and where do you buy them from?

    Thanks so much ay'! LOL

    Hope you and your new mates are doing well. We hope to be sailing in paradise and become your new friends!!! Fare winds and Fare weather!

    Just saw your solar ac on an rv video, and I thought I should let you know about a little secret... assuming you don't know already. Nickel Ferrite (NiFe) batteries are what you should use after your lithium batteries need replacing. They are STUPID expensive, BUT they last forEVER! (Not kidding, there are some that are over 100 years old... still kicking like new!) Check into that if/when the need arises. They are WAY more able to handle just about ANYTHING you can throw at them, too! They won't die anywhere near as easily as lithium - or any other type of battery! They don't make a lot of 'em anymore, and as a result they are uber expensive. Alibaba sells them (made in China) for considerably less than what you can buy them for here, but I do NOT EVER warranty, guarantee, or stand behind anyone anything that I personally do not make. Regardless, I AM telling you to check into them when the time comes (or, if you have the extra cash). You will NOT be disappointed!!!

    Blessings,

    -David

    Jason, I've never done a brewery tour, so after signing up for the Four Corners Brewery tour (here in Dallas) I remembered you talking about breweries occasionally. Since you're from the area I was wondering if you had any recommendations?

    The 4Corners tour is free. I was just looking for cheap date-night ideas for my wife and I when I learned about it, but that's not a requirement.

    Thanks!
