Jana McGeachy and Mick O'Keefe - Australians buy US yacht to cruise Bahama’s, Caribbean and Pacific
Play • 1 hr 39 min

Jana and Mick are not your typical semi-retired Australian offshore sailors. Surviving a head on crash in the outback at 100 km/hr at a young age, made them think differently about turning their sailing dreams into reality sooner. They worked and saved hard for the next 2 years and I catch up with them onboard their dream yacht in Florida, waiting to sail to the Bahamas. Their yacht search led to a surgeon selling his 1986 Morgan 43 for $80k. They offered $58k and it was theirs.

After lots of maintenance, upgrades, groundings, engine headaches and weeks of toil they are on the eve of departure. With a plan to sail the Bahamas for a few months, then fly home to Australia to save more money for next legs to the Caribbean and onto the Pacific, it's a great story of whats possible with determination. We also discuss boat systems and handling and share some handy tips.

Regimental Reconnaissance Company with Mike Edwards, Ep. 81
Mike Edwards served in 3rd Ranger Battalion and the Regimental Reconnaissance Company (RRC) across 18 deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places. In this interview we discuss his combat jump into Iraq in 2003, a rather hot deployment to Mosul, Iraq in 2005, and then the selection and training for RRC and what those deployments were like before he became an instructor at the military free fall course. Apologies that this was not a live show, we had some internet issues with the snow storm here in New York. We hope to get that fixed but we decided to do a recording and upload it instead to make sure you guys got a good interview. The only thing you missed before we hit the record button was Mike and Jack talking about their time in the Ranger Regiment together and how Jack was a private running away and hiding from Mike who was a new tabbed spec-4 at the time! Special thanks to Mike and our viewers for their patience!

A High Performance Drone For Military and Commercial Applications: George Matus, CEO Teal Drones
How can small U.S. drone manufactures compete on the world stage? George Matus is CEO and founder of Teal Drones, a U.S. manufacturer of specialty drones for the commercial and military sector. Based in Salt Lake City, Teal is focused on pioneering new uses for drone systems beyond the “flying camera” applications so often seen in use today. The development of complex air control, data processing and mapping technologies housed in rugged, high-performance drones allows Teal to transform how the military, public safety organizations and commercial enterprises operate. George started Teal Drones in 2014 when he was only a sophomore in high school. Today, Teal is making headlines with it’s signature product, the Golden Eagle drone, a secure, intelligent, rugged and high-performance drone system produced to exacting U.S. defense industry standards. The company found a financial partner in Decathlon Capital earlier this year, a revenue-based financing firm, which provides a funding model that ties a company’s loan payments directly to the amount of revenue they make. The funding agreement comes as the innovative unmanned aerial systems company expands its product line and grows partnerships with the U.S. military and commercial enterprises for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and public safety applications." In this edition of the Drone Radio Show, George introduces us to Teal Drones, the Golden Eagle Drone and shares how a young high school student is now competing globally in the drone industry.
