Luckiest teen in the world?

This kid's videos recently appeared on my suggested watch list (because I mainly watch travel videos), and I was just blown away by how lucky he is to live life sailing the world with his family.

Unfortunately, his father seems to be a Deplorable who does not appreciate sustainability and re-usable bags (which is strange for a man who lives on the ocean), but at least the kid seems to know better.

He just started Vlogging about a month ago, so his commentary still needs work.

But I do appreciate that he keeps his updates relatively short.

This episode is actually pretty cool.

It shows a little bit of what they eat on the sailboat, how he and his sister attend school, and how they spend their leisure time in the evenings, building beach bonfires.

What a life for a kid. I'm so jealous.

R2 is projecting.

Those who are guilty, are usually the ones pointing the finger at others.

The rest of us just see a family living on a sailboat.

by Anonymousreply 4January 31, 2023 10:46 AM

Luckiest? I wouldn't say that at all. He'ß lived on a sailboat from the age of 9 to 16, apart from the world, his human contact and world-view limited to his family/shipmates and what he sees on the internet.

To have lived in such social isolation in his formative, still formative years is maybe the not gift his parents might think it is, and while he is aware of the advantages and disavantages of his life, his awareness stems from what, the internet? fleeting encounters with real living people to whom he's not related? reading about how other people live/d? communications with his land-based cousins and family? It's all rather apart from real life.

He has a certain smugness about living some sort of luxury lifestyle that for many would be a hardship. Living on a sailboat is much more a bubble than traveling the world by more convenional means where you meet airplane pilots, taxi drivers, fellow travelers, people in restaurants, people in an airport lounge, guests staying at the same hotel or hostel, people of all ages and backgrounds and economic classes and education, hippies and professors, rich fuckers and poor, people who have traveled everywhere (twice) and people who have never left their hometown, happy people and sad people, people who work too much, people who don't work at all, horny fuckers, prudes, uptight people who internalize everything and those who lay everything flat out in the open, ambitious people, lazy fuckers, religious nuts, atheists, artists, cat rescuers, the guy with the guitar who fucks everyone, motorheads, fatheads, blowhards, the shy and the reserved. That range of experience is the richness that travel and being young and having a little cash behind you should afford. You should be able to hate your math teacher and wonder what it would be like to fuck your English teacher.

Being on a fucking sail boat taking school lesson from your mom and bragging abut how great you have it when you scarcely know any other life, that's not luxury to me. Its much more the opposite. I think it's pretty unconscionable for parents to throw young kids on a boat and seven years later, there they all are still.

Just as an aside, how do they manage to spend $4000-5000 a month of boat expenses and food for four people? I get the impression the father is one of those blowhards who says four or five times a day, 'This is the life! I pity the poor sons of bitches who can't live like this!'

by Anonymousreply 5January 31, 2023 12:38 PM

R5 I think it would be pretty easy to spend $4000 to $5000 a month for four people on a boat. I don't have a boat but know people who do and the costs of owning and traveling by boat (docking fees, satellite wifi, insurance, etc.) are high.

by Anonymousreply 6January 31, 2023 1:17 PM

Thanks, R6, I'm sure you're right. Seems I rather conveniently forgot having heard boat people say the same about high costs for everything.

In the first video the 16 year old speaks of the monthly expense of $4-5000 as though it were great savings compared to what it would be if they were living landside. Certainly they could spend that much or a lot more if you included mortgage payments, property taxes, state taxes (it sounds like they may be domiciled in Florida, perhaps for that reason), but living landside also includes greater opportunities for employment and income of various sorts, and for accruing value with real estate -- I've never heard of anyone making a lot of money from the sale of a boat unless they restored it from a wreck.

[quote] He has a certain smugness about living some sort of luxury lifestyle that for many would be a hardship.

He doesn't really have a choice in the matter. He was 9 years old when his parents sold everything and bought a boat.

You can see in the first video, his parents asked all three kids if they're ready to move on to a boat.

The mom is like, "Hell yes!" The two older kids were saying "Yes!" And then the father zoomed in on Finn, who seemed not so happy about it and then says "We're not ready." The father actually says to him, "Are you scared of going on the boat, Finn?" And the kid says "Yes."

[quote] Living on a sailboat is much more a bubble than traveling the world by more convenional means

I think his parents wanted it that way. From selling everything, to home schooling.

They could be doomsday preppers, for all we know. I wonder how many guns the father has on board??

Finn posts a caption saying "They needed a change," but I wonder what the real reason is for leaving everything behind?

[quote] Being on a fucking sail boat taking school lesson from your mom and bragging abut how great you have it when you scarcely know any other life, that's not luxury to me.

Finn has two choices.

He can either whine about living on a boat all day and be miserable, or he can try to make the best of it.

He's just trying to make the best of an unchangeable situation.

[quote] I think it's pretty unconscionable for parents to throw young kids on a boat and seven years later, there they all are still.

I do too.

You can see that he's bored out of his mind, and just trying to come up with shit to do all day. Especially in such close quarters.

Seems like shopping at the strip mall in Egypt and taking an uber there, was his thrill of the week. Human interaction with people other than his family!

Then he does these silly little bored dances, and at the end of the first video, he says "I feel so insecure."

I'd love for an adolescent psychologist to weigh in on this. What's the effect of a teen growing up in this sort of environment?

I was also noticing the older brother, who's in an even stranger situation.

He looks like he's in his early 20's, and still tagging along with his family because he has no home base to return to.

Most people his age are in college or working, meeting people, and getting ready for adulthood.

Finn's brother isn't meeting anybody. He's just hanging around with his younger siblings and his parents.

It's fine when you're in your early 20's, but what about when he starts pushing 30?

All three kids are either adults or about to become adults, and they have no solid foundation for their future, except being dependent upon their parents.

That's scary, and I feel bad for them.

by Anonymousreply 10January 31, 2023 4:34 PM

Agreed, R10. It's as though his parents took the kids to a place where they could control everything including the reflection of themselves in their children who are deprived the opportunity to be anything other than a flattering reflection.

The fault is entirely with the parents. How can you criticize their children who haven't been allowed the opportunity to make their own way, to fail, to fuck up, to do things their parents don't like or even do things outside their parents watching every move an arm's length away for 7 fucking years. That is not good luck.

The father is an a*hole. Remembering him complaining about having to be stuck in New Zealand waters at the beginning of Covid. He's like Dump...nothing applies to him/lives by his own rules only.

by Anonymousreply 26February 26, 2023 7:53 PM

You can tell he's seriously depressed.

He's a 16 year old boy with absolutely nothing to do all day.

Finn is barely doing any school work, he barely socializes with people his own age, and he's stuck with only his family in a small, confined space for SIX YEARS.

That is totally selfish of his parents to make Finn and his younger sister live like that.

It's not good for their socialization, and it's not good for their mental health. Teenagers need to be around other kids their age.

The older brother Jack is there by his own choice (he's 20), but I think even he would rather be somewhere else.

The problem is that he has no home base, so he has nothing to go back to, and nothing in place to help him to start building a life. So he has to rely on his parents.

This reminds me of that movie Mosquito Coast. A domineering father, forcing his family to live out HIS dreams, until it all falls apart, and the family rebels against him.

I fear that's what's going to happen with this family.

by Anonymousreply 27February 26, 2023 8:00 PM

How does he go to school? Is he seriously behind other kids his age? He didn’t know what appliances meant.

Is the older brother mentally challenged? What does he do for a living? He looks like Ethan Hawke.

The lack of privacy and general space would drive me crazy. I need to jerk off and fart in peace. What about wanting to go for a walk in a park? What about storms at sea? Even with stabilizers, the constant motion would also annoy me. The piercing sun is a no for me. What a way to age faster. He looks 16 going on 26. Who the hell wants to live in Egypt? Arab Spring isn't a bar of soap. The older brother looks special like there's something not quite not right in his face. The father needs to die of a heart attack. The mom looks like an old crone from a horror movie. The sons will be pimped out to sheiks to subsidize their lifestyle when the chips run dry.

Interesting that the title of Finn's video at R25 is "I'm so tired..."

That's a fucking cry for help.

His Vlog has become a chore for him. Obviously.

But I think that the parents force him to do it, to generate income for himself and for the family.

The older brother Jack has a Vlog too.

And the mother does a Vlog for the entire family, so they're bringing in money through three separate youtube channels.

I don't mind teaching a kid to make money, but on top of home schooling him and trapping him with the family on a small sailboat with nothing to do, it's bordering on slave labor.

The parents are really turning this into an "adventure business."

Now they're recruiting for crew members to experience living on a sailboat, and they're also interviewing for one person to spend a month with them on the sailboat this Summer, as they tour Europe.

These parents are hard core.

R29, regarding "storms at sea."

It looks scary.

I've watched tons of the Sailing Zatara videos, which is the Vlog that the mom produces.

Her videos are much better than the ones done by Jack and Finn.

She and her husband explain a lot about life at sea, provisioning, docking, passports, buying gas for the boat, borrowing cars in ports-of-call, obtaining visas, flying home for the holidays, etc.

It's fascinating.

Interestingly, the oldest daughter ditched the boat and went back to live in Texas. She had had enough.

We’ll see what the real world thinks about that. He’s possibly barely literate and way behind other kids his age. He missed out on middle school and high school. And no, his mom’s home schooling on the boat doesn’t count. How would she have been able to teach 6th through 12th grade from her little home schooling book?

There was a guy a couple years ahead of me who accompanied his parents on a couple adventures. His father had been managing editor of a metropolitan newspaper and took time off the sale the Atlantic in a small boat and wrote a book about it. That was followed up by more adventures. My classmate found it alienating and and the family really fell apart, esp. after the mother died. This kid seems happier, but he also has no real understanding of what he's missing. This is the kind of adventure that has to end someday and he'll need to be able to do something else.

This was in one of their hundreds of "Sailing Zatara" videos that you have to watch, to get the full scope of this family's adventures.

I think that Sailing Zatara is one of the best original content channels on YouTube. Especially for people who have ever wanted to just escape their lives, and go on an adventure.

But yeah, the kids are all horny teenagers (15-19), and they need an outlet.

There's this show "I survived" which has regular people telling stories about horrific (near fatal) events they lived through. One of the stories was about a father that did the same as this father, but some of the kids were pretty young. They ended up in a storm where the mast broke, fell on dad, with his teen son having to figure out how to save the entire family. If it weren't for the son, they all would've been dead. Dad broke his leg, was stuck, then they were over a sharp reef. Just a complete nightmare.

Idk how parents could do this unless they were selfish. That lifestyle is now suited to couples that are young with no kids, or retirees. I would never risk my family's life and make them live so isolated.

It's funny that Jack is older but Finn is more alpha and outgoing. I also think it's funny that they don't realize they are kind of wearing the 90s wide leggy jeans.

The parents actually started Vlogging about their travels on Zatara.

It's how the family makes money, because they don't have jobs.

Once the mom learned how much she can make from creating content, she pretty much told the older son Jack and then Finn, to make their own channels.

The original "Sailing Zatara" channel has 563,000 subscribers after about 6 years.

Finn just started his channel this year, and he already has 226,000 subscribers.

He's a 17 year old who has lived on a boat since he was 10 or 11 and was home schooled by his mother. He is severely lacking in social skills, mainly due to his being with his family pretty much all the time.

How much privacy did you have at 16-17? I don’t remember having much. When he goes ashore alone he has privacy, just like when I went for a walk I had privacy.

But I wasn’t from the era of latchkey kids so basically our moms were usually home a lot.

[quote]Why do I live in a crummy suburb?

In Ibiza? My idea of being in Ibiza is to enjoy time on the island, not days getting there to spend two days docked at a marina in a cold boat waiting to spend another day travelling to Cartagena then more days to Gibraltar to prepare to ward off the orcas in the strait, then...

It's a fundamental difference in personality, obviously. I want to be somewhere, they seem always in transit, looking after the boat constantly as though a living organism. It seems neither relaxing not luxurious nor even interesting to me to be near famed places but to see them from always from the sea, from a marina , from the Aldi where the insta-hot noodles are replenished for the next leg of the trip. For me it's akin to flying to Paris but never leaving Charles de Gaulle Airport, going to Venice but not leaving the train station.

I don't mind the time that travel requires to get some place, but I want to get off the fucking boat.

by Anonymousreply 226November 22, 2023 3:03 PM

R226 They get off the boat all the time, look at some of their videos. The boat is their home so yes they spend a lot of time there.

The Whitakers were in Ibiza a few days ago, and then Cartagena Spain.

Interesting that they brought up the issues of Orcas sinking boats near the Strait of Gibraltar, because that's where they're headed.

Although I hate the fact that in the event of an attack, they plan on dropping underwater firecrackers to scare away the Orcas.

It seems kind of cruel.

It bothers me that this family was considering dropping "dynamite" in the water, to scare away the Orcas.

Orcas are clearly disturbed by something humans are doing, which is why they keep attacking boats.

Why are humans ignoring them???

[quote]maybe they’re isolated to some extent.

Fucking hell, they are isolated to a great extent. On a boat with the usual minimum family crew of 7, you're never more than a corner away from some family member's eye.

The idea that the children become adults living on a boat, with barely any opportunity for time to go into town and see friends or make friends, to go away to school, to know a variety of teachers and peers, to know what it's like to have the "house" to oneself for a week while your parents go one vacation, to be able to jerk off without the necessary omnipresence of the watching eyes of blood relatives a doorknob away, to only have a few hours to oneself (usually with siblings it seems) when they do have some time on land, and to know that every relationship you make with a new person has an expiry date of hours, days, or a few weeks... I'd say that's isolated from some essential rites of passage for adolescents and young adults, simply being able to get away from your family and start to be one hour own person.

They're sailing along a Southerly route near the equator, R237. So it's relatively warm.

But it looks like they have some good wind behind them, and it's pushing them along quickly.

I haven't been watching his videos for a while, but Finn said that after this crossing, they're going to end up back where they started in Florida.

Then all of the kids will be going their separate ways and doing other things.

Good for them. And what a life experience. It's definitely something they will never forget.

Watching this family cross the Atlantic ocean makes me think of Columbus crossing the Atlantic for the first time.

And then I watch this family of five (plus one) sailing on this luxury sailboat, with hot water, showers, a full kitchen, satellite internet, and all of the modern conveniences.

It's a pretty amazing thing.

R234 Don't know about you, but when I was a teenager, I didn't go away to school, I never had the house to myself for a week, and jerking off in a small house in the suburbs doesn't give you much more privacy from your family than on a boat.

The technical talk. I'm not technically inclined.

He was just rattling off all of the different tools and equipment on his boat, and it's just astounding to me how he picked it all up by himself in a little over two years.

A lot of the commenters on Garrett's videos mention how humble he is, how determined he is, and how brave he is. They also kind of take shots at the Whitakers (Finn and Jack's family) by saying that Garrett's videos aren't staged for social media, and he doesn't do "gimmicks" for clicks. He basically just gives a video journal of his travels. And I totally agree with them.

Normally, if I were to just watch someone talking, I would get bored. But I wasn't bored with Garrett's videos, because it was just fascinating to watch the highs, the lows, the boredom, and the incidentals that pop up during an ocean voyage.

I actually shed some tears of joy, when Garrett made it to Tahiti. I watched all three parts of his 2500 mile journey, and it is just amazing what this kid accomplished.

I think of the things that could have gone wrong like rogue waves, container ships hitting him while he slept, and at one point he even jumped into the ocean, which was terrifying.

When he said "Land HO!" I was actually so proud of him.

I could never have done what he did at 19.

And then she records the family swimming in the middle of the Atlantic, with 16,000 feet of water below them.

Honestly, I think that the two boys have a LOT of pent up sexual frustration.
