We’ve enjoyed discovering lots of new talents who are using and loving TotalBoat and sharing their experiences with their followers. YouTube has become a playground for makers and builders, dreamers, and doers. Our TotalBoat Ambassadors are there creating videos of their boats and boards or are busy dreaming up the next big thing. There is something to be learned from all of them – whether it’s Lou Sauzedde’s “hang over and cut” method or Paul Jackman showing us how to buff epoxy to a brilliant, clear shine. Lots of the advice is – as ever – “take it or leave it,” but we think it’s worth your time to follow these makers who push the limits of their imagination, who aren’t afraid to try and to fail and then to show you that process. Enjoy revisiting some of our Ambassador’s best videos and consider supporting them on their Patreon accounts to show them that you appreciate their work and the time it takes to film their projects – good and bad – and then edit it into a video so that they can share their ideas with all of us. Move over, weekly DIY TV shows, YouTube is here to serve you on-demand how-tos of any and every variety. Dig in!
You can start by revisiting some old favorites from Tips from a Shipwright, or learn something from the Acorn to Arabella boys – in case you ever want to build your own 40-foot sailboat. We don’t share these videos because we hope you will also build yourself a massive waterfront home, (ok – we do hope you’ll build one – start now!)
Here are a few of our playlists that will help you with your viewing.
