Solo boating safety.

 Well being a bit bored and watching a few you tube videos yesterday  happened to check out YBS latest offering. Now talk around town in Exmouth is Brody will be the next poppa george and end up in the drink with his boat sailing off into the sunset and him never to be seen again .  I was shocked at what he did.  Be safe people take solo boating seriously it is a big lonely ocean out there.

 He was obviously on a spot he'd fished before or had done a heap of drifts.

You'd think he'd invest in an electronic man overboard motor kill switch. It's going to be good footage when they find his boat in Indo one day with a dead dog on board.

I did say to the mrs that it makes me uncomfortable when he walks around to the bow of the boat when it is putting along with no one at the helm.

Still, it is the closest thing to fishing i am going to be doing for a while and considering we were meant to be up there in a week and a half, it is just jealousy talking.

 He does some cool stuff but he is far from a role model. I do enjoy watching his videos but the 'talent' has been a bit scarce lately.

 He is pretty crazy, I think he might be on the spectrum possibly?


But that kind of thing gets clicks, and clicks pays the bills since he quit his job.

 I'd agree with that, some of his actions and mannerisms seem a bit off kilter.

Big fan of Brody

Fri, 2020-04-03 08:10

But YES NOT GOOD, just goes to show how you can get wrapped up in whats going on around you and forget the bigger picture .
It does not take more than a second to make a wrong move and then your in the water and off goes the boat into the distance.
Going by the amount of hrs he has spent on the water would suggest just a simple brain fade.
Not sure if Stryda has his skippers ticket.
Still think the Gov should subsidize the cost of those MOB switches and wrist bands(just my opinion) way too expensive.

My 10y old son follows this

My 10y old son follows this channel. Very disappointing to see when I spend a lot of time and energy teaching him about boating safely

I've got an MOB+ Scuba, great bit of kit!


If catching wrasse is cool, consider me Miles Davis

Fri, 2020-04-03 08:58

 I guess for him personally not very risky being pretty agile and better balanced than most. Like a lot of us he would do riskier thing's than that on the ski and dirt bikes all the time.

But yeah not setting a good example  definitely.

 Not sure which move everyone is talking about. Walking around the bow or jumping in the water 10 seconds after seeing a Shark.
