Recently came across your vlog for the fishing for big fish. I was born in Hawaii and in the ’70’s worked aboard the M/V Nahoa, a 120′ tug doing underwater salvage and marine survey work. Great times and we often caught Yellow Fin Tuna, Wahoo and Dolphin (called Ahi, Ono and Mahi, respectively in Hawaiian.) Thanks for the memories.

Hi guys,

I just wanted to say I am a huge fan of your channel and I only discovered it last week! I love seeing all your adventures! I am actually building a sunfish out of a kayak and was wondering if you guys have and advice you could give me. If you do, it is much appreciated! 🙂

Kind regards from Loveland Colorado,
Hazel

Hi, guys,

First of all thank you very much for your amazing videos. We love the way you film and tell stories, it is always interesting and funny.

We have two questions : what does Nahoa mean and why do you sail under German flag? (by the way, we like this flag)

Kind regards from Lake Constance, Germany 🙂

    Hi Regina. Thanks for watching and the compliments.

    Nahoa means “Bold and Defiant” in Hawaiian. It’s a good fit for us because if you really do want to change your life, you need to make some big bold moves and make decisions in defiance of other opinions.

    Short story on the german flag; German family owned Nahoa and sailed her on a sabbatical from Europe to America. It was only 15 euro to transfer the registration and leave her registered in Germany. In canada it would have taken many months and thousands of dollars to register her 🙂
