  • Top 10 signs I’m watching way too much sail life 1. Anything tedious is now called a “fiddlely bits”. 2. Cleaning my house is now called “Oh glorious” cleaning. 3. I address my team at work with “The astute among you” will have noted ... 4. I’ve started calling Insulation ... “inCHulation”. 5. I accidentally called my own dog jokull. 😬 6. Every completed project is followed with a “Tadaa”!! 7. I’ve started ending my phone calls with, that’s “Enough yammering on”. 8. I ask “the great hive mind” for advice. 9. I’ve started wearing colorful, pocket, short sleeve, colored, button downs. 10. “Pretty dang spiffy” is now the new work standard. I look forward to these videos all week!!

    • Not too shabby....

    • @Papounet if I do say so myself* ;)

    • A great comment if I do say so ;-)

    • Haha, that's the funniest comment I've seen in a long time :D

    • Oh glorious debugging.... for me

  • Well done

  • Sorry about this Because if you working with this speed your boat is need more than 3 years to set Sail !! Keep it going little bit faster 😉!!!!. Best wishes to you.

  • Love the slats, the finish on them is lovely.

  • Someone with more money than me please order him a replacement interior portlight trim piece for the one that's been cut. I mean, he moved an entire wall to expose that portlight after all...

  • Just wonderful progress, much respect!

  • Wow so much achieved, and juggling so many jobs at once. Very impressed

  • I'd love to see you rework your outro tiles. I've noticed (since I've watched your channel for years) there is so much information on the screen that I've never once clicked a "watch next" video. They get lost in all the text that is on your outro template. It would be so much more effective to have a clean outro tile template and not post all your social media text. If you want links to your social media just add them as buttons in your template. That way the 2 videos you are promoting viewers watch next will stand out much more. Also, black is really not an ideal color of this type of template. It's a simple fix. You can make a free outro template using Canva's free version in just a few minutes. Download it as an MP4. Then do your normal routine of adding what videos you want to display in SEnewss Studio. I think this simple thing would add so much more value to the outro than the current configuration. All the best.

  • Colonel Clink called wants to know if you saw Hoogen while looking for that bit of Athena. Yes I'm old AF.

  • It looks so much better without the bulkhead cutting through the port light!

  • I have a suggestion that might help your 'orange peeling'. When I'm working on my resin jewelry I use a Bic lighter, and go over all the resin, lightly, to get the air pockets out. It might work nice for you.

  • Dang spiffy video, Mads. 👍🏼💯💥

  • We LOVE LOVE LOVE this sailing channel and watching SPIFFY!! ⚓⛵ Hubby and I eagerly wait for a new one to be uploaded every week!! You're episodes have given us so many handy tips and guidance with our very own boat build in South Australia :D I too find myself mimicking Mads with doohickeys, fiddlely bits and see yoooouuuu 👋 PS... everything I design & make at work that I love has to be ranked as ....spiffy!! Thanks for your awesome videos!! keep them coming xx Mel & Luke

  • So I just realized something. I missed last week's video. So I got a full hour of SailLife today. With the commercials, I got a TV show called the SailLife. Welcome to The Sail Life! Yeyyyyyy! It's time to play the music It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet Jokull on the SailLife Show tonight.

  • Wow Athena looks so good! Thanks for sharing, we learn a lot by watching your videos! Already stole some of you ideas for our own boat 😄

  • 😂You made me laugh a few times on this one!!!I know how you feel!Boat work😏.Been there,done that,still doing!🤭.Athena,looking mighty fine👍

  • Excellence

  • Must be really messed up software if he's saying "God Danged" I mean them's fighting words where I come from. Or Grandma will whoop your Bee Hind something fearest! Someone send him something that works, before his what's it breaks.

  • orange peel effect appears when the paint is too cold when applied to the material. It worth putting the paint can to a bowl of hot water (the temperature of hot water you get from a household tap) before you start painting.

  • Mads, have you considered teaching courses on basic boat maintenance? I know I would be first in line for a fiberglass and painting course!

  • Your attention to detail is a treat to witness.

  • Where are you getting your mahogany slats? I haven't had any luck finding any in the US..

  • I have been wondering, but afraid to ask, how’s your dog?

  • Hej Mads Jeg har en tysker der bruger butyl til skrugeren. Prøv og se her. Det er et enormt inspirerende program du laver. Jeg vil samlingen det med “Kurs mod fjerne kyster” på det “Gør det selv til båden” vis👍🙂 senewss.info/slow/mqvairKpiNK6sbY/video&feature=share

  • It’s like you filmed this episode in time lapse? ; ) You got so much done! Great job

  • Probing holes with your finger? I thought this channel was about boat repair!!

  • So excited! I received my Hi guys! And Pretty dang spiffy stickers today. I love your channel and wish you continued success.

  • Mads, you need to wear a dust mask when you're cutting/routing/sanding wood, especially if it's MDF (composite). Also any time you mix West 406, as it's extremely dangerous to breath silica dust.

  • MADS - am I hearing a sinus infection? Get well soon.

  • Awesome as always, you will get lots completed now.

  • So much progress! Amazing what can be done without a normal job!

  • If you shift the diesel and waste lids the diesel thieves can have all they want..😂

  • Nice

  • Oh my god, I FORGOT to watch Sail Life on my Sunday .... :(

  • Getting sad ... son Athena will be completed and will leave port ... no more DIY videos to wacht ... :-( :-(

    • this fact has already such a negative impact on me that I am unable to type without spelling mistake

  • Everything looks so good! And im so glad you finally fixed the area over the navstation because just like Ava i also thought that it was a real eye-sore. :)

  • Mads.... there was no SPIFFY exclamations this week.... ????

  • ."..and giving the hole a thorough probing." Dying.

  • Getting so much more done each episode now that you are working on it full time.

  • Been using butyl for decades....Number 1 failure rate is because people donot clean with Alcohol....Pure clean surface is a must ....no exemptions for success Fairwinds from the @captains.chair

  • So where does Jokull the dog live now?

  • Wow u got so much done. Looks really nice

  • Love the Ring of Deception, too funny !!

  • Don't mix filler on wood you will get tons of pin holes from air. Use a plastic mixing board. Auto body 101

  • I've said it before, but this episode further illustrates one of the key attractions of these wonderful videos.....outstanding editing!!! The information just rattles along but it makes perfect sense combined with the footage.

  • I know others have mentioned ways to camouflage the gap in the port light trim but do you still have the trim pieces for the port light you removed in the head? You could always cut a couple of pieces of aluminum to fit the gap over the nav desk. For that matter if you have access to someone with a welder, you could cut the pieces, and hand them over to somebody to weld them up for you and not have to replace the trim.

  • I am too caffeine deficient to make a snappy comment so I will just leave it at amazing job as always.

  • An other way to seal those portlights than butyl, is that normal household window soft rubber gasket tape available from any local hardware store. It will flex with the boat and is 100% water tight. And takes no time to change if ever required... just a tip...

  • don't forget, to remember, to leave a like!

  • How was your first week without having to go to your 'day-job'?. Have you any thoughts about maybe making more than one video a week? ATB . Phil

  • Maybe its the time to move on to Davinci Resolve ;)

  • "Shmear" is what Danes put on their bread.

  • Can’t help but think I would have covered all my expensive instruments before I started sanding 🤦‍♂️

  • We have portlights like those, they were installed in 1997 and are still in pristine condition. The Gebo after service is also very good in case you needed a part.

  • We waited all week and before we know it, we are waiting for next week. Forgot to mention, we scored a Garmin chart plotter in the laundry recycling corner. This is a discontinued model and when I got it to fire up, I couldn't believe how good it was. So simple to get around the menus and operate. I'm officially cursing the stuff we have on board made by a guy called Ray.

  • Beautiful work Mads!

  • Portlight ninja!

  • A clean coat over that paint may stop the yellowing

  • the vast majority of your woodworks is gorgeous. ...and then you cover it with white paint. I cry every time.

  • Dang spiffy 👍

  • Thanks for the lovely video as always, Mads and may your rendering be smooth (& just eat some popcorn with peanuts and m&m's while you wait-it does "sweeten the ordeal just a bit!).

  • Must say the white paint is definitely brightening up the interior. Looking spiffy!

  • Just fantastic.....

  • I just love you sense of humor! Thanks for the episode

  • Mads at his finest: "Applying a small amount to my gloved finger and giving the hole a thorough probing." yes im 12 .. 😂

  • Were you able to get the port light in the first go or did the frame get bumped?

  • I hate that you are almost done… lol… wait its a sailboat… I always check to see if video is over or under 20 min cause I want more… Great Job!

  • Not sure what editing software you use but divinci resolve 16 is free and is awesome. There are a lot of tutorials on it too. I switched from premier pro and I really love it. All the best and love the channel. From Halifax Nova Scotia Canada

  • Man you definitely know what you're doing, fantastic!

  • I plan on using this video as a template for making templates for templates.

  • Mads, your skill as a finish woodworker is only exceeded by your drive for perfection. As a luthier, i spend hours getting seams to match and joints to appear seamless. You seem to do it with ease. Thank you for sharing your time and skills with us.

  • Okay, I watch too many sail boat refit videos ! I have come to the conclusion the the best thing to use when bedding a port light is butyl tape. Why ? Because it and all other sealants/caulks WILL EVENTUALLY FAIL ! With butyl removing the port light and butyl tape and cleaning before re-bedding is much easier than any other sealant/caulk. Maybe butyl does not last as long, but replacing it is so much easier !

  • Ring of deception, lol!

  • When your trim is too short, make the overlap at an angle. This way, no matter the movement you will never see a gap...if one long piece ends up being a bit of a pain to find. Keep up the hard work

  • Where is your dog?

  • :)

  • You should paint the space aluminum grey where the port light frame was cut to create the illusion of a full frame.

  • You didn't introduce us to Mr. Bunny!!!! Boat is looking more and more awesome!!!

  • Mads, I’m out of breath just watching you! Save a little of yourself for Ava when she arrives👍

  • You’re getting so much done now that you only have one job!

  • Let's not forget that English isn't his native language, and yet he cursed in English when the piece from the hole saw plopped into the water!

  • For your analytics

  • Excited for you, man! Everything is coming together.

  • Port-light frame with cut out for missing bulkhead.... I'm betting the one flaw on Athena right above the nav station is going to gnaw at you. So I'm starting a pool, "on which upcoming Sunday" will we see C&C action with a piece of aluminum for a new port-light frame?

  • Congratulations for the excellent work done. It’s really nice seeing you at daily basis doing your best for accomplishing the things to be done. Let’s wait for next week. Health and Peace from Rio de Janeiro Yacht Club.

  • 9:38 - Colonel Klink, Hogan's Heros. "Hogan!!!...."

  • Great work

  • we so much love your attention to detail. Ava should be mad pleased with the eyesore gone. 👍👍💚⛵

  • As an unemployed lazy bum (like the rest of us retired cruisers) you can get so much more boat work done in a week. Enjoy that while it lasts since once you and your lovely lady move in together and cast off the lines you will never again be as productive as you are right now. Speaking from experience here...

  • Looking nice, did you put some antisieze on the screws for the port holes?

  • Busy week. Wow you get so much more done working full time on the boat. 😊

  • Nice video as usual

  • looks great Mads. "More than one way to swing a cat" so NO criticism here Mads, but I am 80% sure you can adjust the depth on that Trim Router.... no need to add material for right height of the surface.

  • I think you’re the fastest and best build out there!

  • Thank you Mads for this week's video. A few small pieces of silver duct tape would fill in the gaps on the port light ring. Not permanent but good for filming-LOL. Take care and let us know how far the hole piece made it before you caught up to it.

  • Just ask somebody to back those nuts up.

  • Fantastic and funny!

  • 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  • Mads, there is this really strange, bright light in parts of your video this week. It's almost like there is some big bright light in in the sky there in Denmark. I know you mentioned an issue with video editing software, so maybe that's it. : P

  • Mads, here in Western Australia, we add a drop of black paint tint to any white can of paint to prevent yellowing. If getting our ceilings painted, we ask for WA White. It doesn’t change the colour, and is obvious if it isn’t done. Prior to my purchasing my home, someone patched 2sq m of the ceiling and used plain white. That yellowed significantly vs the rest of the ceiling. All the best. Loved all your videos since the beginning. ⛵️😊
