  1. The more I see and hear Chris, the more I like his low key approach to reviews. His last 45 seconds were gold…

  2. Lewmar 40’s, seems underpowered to me. Ok for the small jib, 150-140 under winched

  3. Enjoy the reviews. Also like the mix by Loveshadow, could you give me the title. Thank You.

  4. I really love your reviews. They are very clear and helpful. Also very pleasant to watch. My boat is a Bavaria 33 Cruiser (2007). To me she’s a fantastic boat in every sense. Even when I compare her with new models (of all brands) she’s still the best for me. However, I hear some negative thougts about this yacht. I wonder if you have done any tests/reviews with Bavaria 33 Cruiser in the past (I couldn’t find any). I’d very much like to know what you think about her.

  5. I do love your reviews. As a new sailor and prospective boat owner, seeing these reviews, and the little details that an inexperienced boat owner may not think of, if very helpful and educational. I do wish your channel was organized with some playlists, such as boat reviews, quality testing, equipment review, racing, interviews, etc.

  6. Good review, I hope the manufacturer takes note of the toe and grab rail negative comments. I would like to have more comments on performance under sail. Perhaps there should be a link to a more in-depth review for those tantalised by the short version? Keep up the great work and Happy New Yer

  7. I love the reviews. Well done. I wish you could do a few catamarans, especially the 50-60 foot variety. Sunreef?

  8. @baddogonline we’ll bear this in mind for future videos. We have the graphic artist who does the illustrations for the magazine, so we should be able to squeeze them in

  9. @nutella61 the Feb issue comes out next week, but the digital content comes online the week before 😉

  10. I enjoyed the review again. Especially your excitment about the different features knocks me down.. :-D
    I imagine you did the test on January 1st 2013… what a way to start the new year!!
    Anyways… All the best to You and all the Rest!!

  11. I love your reviews! The only criticism I have is, I wish you would show a few seconds of the boat’s diagram, so I could see the hull configuration and type of Keel. I’m always left wondering what type of bits are under the water. 🙂

  12. Ahahah. OK, it was just a rough estimation… 😉
    I’m going to buy the magazine.
    BTW… in my sailing blog (blog [dot] veleggiando [dot] it) I wrote an article about your anchor chain test. Is the january issue already available?

  13. Not strictly true the interior portion of the vid is only 44%. 🙂

    The interior part is 4:50, on deck is 2:20, performance 1:40 and the conclusion is 2:00. The video is 10:52 long.

    If we told you everything about the boat in the video there would be no need to buy the magazine. 😉

  14. 90% of the test is dedicated to the interior, as if this is the most important quality in a boat.
    I would like to see reviews in which the sea keeping and navigation qualities are tested, more than furnitures…
    Fair winds! 😉
