on the fast, only 2 reasons come into my mind:
GROUP 1: GET FAMOUS
GROUP 2: GET RICH
please write me if no one of this 2 main reasons applies to you. i am always very interested to expand my imagination & knowledge.
filming, creating, editing & designing every single episode of a sailing v-log takes weeks of work. additional, you have to learn and constant develop your knowledge & experience about how to create an always interesting & entertaining video for your audience. you need to know all about the technical equipment (hard & software) plus, you need to invest a few thousand dollars in the equipment: main camera, additional waterproof action cam, external microphone, laptop, editing software, batteries, data storage, tripod & online courses etc.

if you count yourself to GROUP 2: if you also go „the famous way“ you gonna need round 50.000 views on your video and as your government also wants to earn a bit, better get 75.000 views to get your invested 50 US$ plus tax to pay back. that means: to reach the return on invest of zero, what is only your invested money in adverts. no return on invest of your working hours, your equipment invest or any profit to pay for a living and running the boat - and there`s definitely nothing left for additional saving to become rich one day.
BUT HOW TO EARN SOME REAL GOOD MONEY ON SAILING VIDEOS?
after becoming or already on your way to be famous, you can start a patreons channel and hope for some really rare fans who understand your situation, sympathize with you and support your project with a small monthly fee - but as nothing is for free, you need
