Review


This is the voice of experience Speaking. People will not buy this program to be caught up in the scenery; it is about useful information and there is no shortage of that. --Cruising Helmsman Magazine, Australia

Lin and Larry are at it again. Their new video, Cost Control, entices you in with answers to that age-old question, What does it cost to go cruising? And then they fill your head with all sorts of notions about seamanship, maintenance, provisioning, living aboard and a boatload of other aspects of the voyaging life. To make sure you get your money's worth, they've also included stunning sailing footage, glorious landfalls, gorgeous boats, and interludes featuring friends playing sea tunes. Then just when they've told you how to save on every aspect of your trip, they turn around and show you how to spend wisely and have fun. Very informative. Very entertaining. --Mark Pillsbury-Editor, Cruising World

There is no end to the number of people telling you how to spend money cruising; many of whom don't care if you ever leave dock at all. For those who actually want to sail into the sunset, however, there exist the Pardeys, whose new DVD is the only one I can recommend to would-be cruisers who wants to cut costs, and docklines. --Kim Hampton-founder, YachtPals.com

After voyaging tens of thousands of miles under sail, penning more useful marine books than Hiscock and Moitessier combined, and receiving more awards for their pursuits than Tom Hanks has for his, Lin and Larry are entitled to their well-earned nautical opinions. --Herb McCormick, editor, Cruising World

Lin and Larry Pardey s newest video is another excellent production. These two have never done anything but top-notch books, videos, lecture series, presentations, and whatever else they decide to take on. As the narrator, Lin explains that they cannot offer their very popular lectures everywhere in the country so they have decided to offer some of the highlights on video. The most frequently asked questions are consistently: How much does it cost to go cruising and how can we control those costs? Ergo, the theme of this video. With beautiful background video images captured over the past 15 to 20 years of cruising, Lin presents everything you ever wanted to know about cruising life and the choices that affect your costs. Points included are the size of your vessel, the relationship you intend to maintain with people at home, your ability to fix things aboard, and whether you plan to work along the way. She makes you consider the lifestyle choices you ll face, such as: docking in marinas or anchoring in remote locations, how much time you ll spend in towns, whether you ll cruise in convoy or alone, how much eating out and cooking aboard you ll do, and the quantity of entertainment ashore or tourist travel you ll do. She reports on an informal survey she conducted with 20 to 30 fellow cruisers regarding costs aboard. She learned that Americans averaged $1,500 a month, while the Europeans and South Africans (and other non-U.S. sailors) averaged $1,200. But the real range was $700 to $3,000 a month. She also notes that the first year tends to be cheaper on average, since you generally leave home with a boat that is well-equipped with all systems functioning. In addition, the joy of cruising is often entertainment enough (sunrises and sunsets, shore explorations, sightings of birds and animals, and so on). By the second year you may need more parts and maintenance, may look for more shoreside entertainment and meals, and may want to make a trip home to visit friends and relatives. Another interesting point is Lin s unstoppable boat concept. This means that your systems -- such as water, lighting, basic navigation, sail raising and lowering, and anchoring -- must be separate so that the loss of one won t stop your cruising. You should be able to do these things even if your electrical system or any other system fails. If you can do this, you can continue your travels until you get to a town large enough to make the repairs or have parts flown in relatively inexpensively. She says you should have sails that you can maintain yourself and offers some tips on doing so. She adds that you must be comfortable at anchor with ground tackle you can rely on, a dinghy you enjoy using, and a way to bathe aboard. Other topics include yacht insurance, health insurance, your boat as a warehouse, onboard communications, cruising in company, purchasing local foods, flying home, paper charts and guides, haulout, and traveling in less-frequently cruised areas. Just for fun, Lin also includes her tips regarding spending money. After all, she just helped you save it, didn t she? Another fun thing is the musical interludes Lin and Larry include as breaks. Some of their favorite sailor and musician friends are featured singing or playing classical guitar. A fun and unexpected highlight. This video is enlightening, educational, and entertaining. We can all benefit from viewing it more than once. You ll enjoy it. Guaranteed. --Karen Larsen, editor Good Old Boat Magazine

About the Actor

Lin and Larry Pardey have now been cruising on board their own boats, racing, delivering and repairing other people s boats for over 46 years. With both west to east and east to west circumnavigations and voyages to more than 75 countries they have a breadth of knowledge few other boating authors possess. The majority of the voyaging has been done on an earn-as-you-go budget that could be well within the reach of the majority of people who dream of setting sail. Their strengths are neatly symbolized by the boats that they have built. Each one is romantically traditional with swooping sheer lines and is completely dependant on the wind in her generous sailplan. And yet each carries the best, strongest, most seamanlike gear. Like their vessels, their writings are founded on a marriage of the spirit of romantic adventure that spurs them on and the practical up-to-date seamanship that keeps them and their boats safe. The eleven books and 4 DVD programs Lin and Larry have created are among the topselling sailing books ever written. Lin s most recent book, Bull Canyon, a Boatbuilder, a writer and other Wildlife was a readers selection at seven book online clubs. This most recent DVD program is the third in their Offshore Sailing series.

I thought this program was the closest you can get to spending an evening with Lin and Larry. It's presented in a highly organized way but interspersed with humor and cruising video that is obviously shot in lots of different countries. It definitely lays out the ways to enjoy cruising without blowing your budget. Not preachy at all. The extras are lots of fun too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tips, relevant and fun to watch July 21, 2012
By Ian
This is a fun DVD to watch and it really feels like you are spending some time with Lin and Larry talking about how to keep the cost of cruising under control. They have a lot of useful ideas that you can incorporate into your own cruising - the costs can be prohibitive now which is why the information in here is so helpful and presented in such a nice manner.
The DVD is well put together incorporating some fun video from previous cruises - it is certainly one that will be useful as a reference and as another reviewer said it is 'Not Preachy'.
Without doubt this is their best DVD so far, especially the atmosphere that they create. Look forward to a future DVD with them sitting back and talking about some of their great experiences!

3.0 out of 5 stars A RE-DO OF OLD MATERIAL April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
Been a fan for many years, from the first book they published thru the vhs years and now this. They are a little older and more seasoned but more or less its the same info. To their credit, reading or watching their previous work has stood the test of time.
But for me, I've been there done that, Enjoyable, like seeing a long lost friend.
