Morons ......"we're dumb enough to take an infant on a trans-pac, now we're entitled to very expensive rescue"....I wonder how many of the kids end up sexually experimenting with each other. These are some selfish fucking parents.

I would never live on sea for 3 reasons. 1. No wifi 2 the freaking boat could drown 3 no dunkin donuts

But wat about social events school etc if they need food and we're truly committed they would only eat from the sea. This is so dangerous and beyond irresponsible

600k wasted nice
I suppose it's a bit of a strange concept. Although there are other people around the world who spent their life at sea. My uncle is a great example. His name is Karlo (Karl,) he use to be an officier in the Croatian navy back when Yugoslavia was still a thing. Although he owned a house on an island which the government awarded him for the service, he pretty much lives on his boat, with his family. Although it should be said, his boat was actually a rather large fishing boat, not a yacht, and his sons (Teodor, Fran, and Mate) helped him with the fishing business, so it's not really compareable. When you look at my uncle you'd understand, but looking at this family you'd say why didn't they just buy a house instead? But hey, to each their own, if they can make it work, why not.
How are the koffman's selfish and all that???? They just had an accident at sea...

Only think with sail boats is your a sitting duck if you end up hitting a storm I'd love a house boat to have for the summer wouldn't be a sailboat tho
Pyroman / (1 month ago)
Should of turned back soon as the kid started getting sick
Pyroman / (1 month ago)
5:00 my kids don't fight putting on seat belts they actually yell at me If don't put mine one right away I normal don't put it on till I back out of the parking spot but there on me soon as I start the car ... they don't really fight light jackets if we go on the water either
Pyroman / (1 month ago)
1:54 them people are normal a few minutes away from help people in tornado areas have storm shelters. .. you have warnings for hurricanes if you get stuck in a small storm it may knock out your satellite link or one wave could flip your boat then your really fucked

How would be they educated
Kim .Johnson (1 month ago)
Raising an older child on a boat is one thing, but a baby is a different story. What happens when you have a medical life or death emergency out in the middle of the ocean, don’t have the luxury of calling 911 and getting help fairly quick. The money spent to send military or other rescuers is not payed buy the people who needed there help, taxpayers and government have to pay for it.

Is anyone else wondering how they get food except from fish ?
MICHELLE Parks (1 month ago)
Hmmmm. I'm on the fence with this one. I like the unconventional living, but having all them young ones aboard seems unfair. They don't have much space to play at all. I'm sorry when you have kids you have to live for them. Thus seems the parents aren't doing that.
Lily Tang (1 month ago)
Even if they have a giant supply, their gonna run out of diapers sooner or later with like three kids not potty trained
S K (1 month ago)
Ever heard of cloth diapers? Also I'm pretty sure the go ashore for supplies.

With how those kids were acting when it came to having to put their life vests on, you can tell they probably don’t wear them like that as often as the parents are saying for the cameras.
Kristin Wallace (1 month ago)
In some ways I would say that this life style is actually teaching the kids a lot more then what is just taught in public schools. These kids get to explore and learn hands on. I think that is great!
i’m just wondering if that baby got her shots. like if they’re sailing the ocean how are they gonna stay up to date on all their vaccinations so they can stay healthy ??
SophiaAnd Sebastian (1 month ago)
Friend: Can I come over? Daughter: Yeah well about that......
Clueblue109 (1 month ago)
The kids are learning, the parents take safety precautions seriously, sure it’s small and that would be difficult but plenty of people live in tiny homes.
And if you need serious medical emergency that a med kit can’t fix? Like, a heart attack maybe? 🤔
Happy (1 month ago)
As long as the parents are educated in sailing and first aid as well as the kids homeschooled I see no issue.
Josett Watters (1 month ago)
I just don’t understand what is the big deal these people are happy that’s whatWrong with this world people are so quick to judge other people and tear them apart let them just be happy let them make their own choices they’re the ones they have to deal with everything not us and for the people that had to be rescued so what what’s the difference between any other person that goes out on their boat when something happens life is too short these people are doing what they really truly love I wish I could be as brave and Spontaneous ias them

These kids will suffer without anyone other than family to talk to. They need to be able to socialize and know what things are. Do they even know what friends are?
Clyde Macasero (2 months ago)
you would think that this may be a cheaper way to live, but at what cost? your young children didn’t have a choice, so you made it for them? that’s quite selfish, wouldn’t you agree? if you’re not trained well to be a skipper, a boat repairman, a nurse or health caregiver... and so many other skills you may have to educate & train yourself with, then why risk your life along with your young children’s lives?
Tiffany Mosher (2 months ago)
Well if those kids were really used to putting on life jackets whenever they start off, I dont think we would have seen that much resistance. Lol obviously that was only for the show
aaron g (2 months ago)
You people make me sick talk about hypocrisy you guys will spend whatever money it takes on illegal immigrants and then b**** about a little girl being rescued at Sea and then find the parents unfit because they're giving their families a real adventurous existence you people are the reason why this country is hell

Saskia. H (2 months ago)
Ugh I really dislike this kind of reporting...so negative and judgmental. Who cares if other people don’t understand their way of life, it’s their decision! I just hate that mainstream media treat situations as if there has to be a dark side to everything. Meanwhile, poor people in America live a far more dangerous existence, while the homeless problem becomes epidemic. I doubt the people criticizing these parents give two craps about the thousands of poor people raising their children in squalor because the United States Government refuses to provide them with support.

I think that other family should've split up & let the mom go with the sick baby & the dad take the boat to the nearest shore & meet up with them. Sinking their boat seems really wrong.
Yeet Savage (2 months ago)
What horrible parents they are striping their kids of normal lives and destroying communication skills and a good education not to mention how bad it is to be all alone at sea
Can't believe they didn't go to shore to get help for their kid...what jerks
We grew up on a boat
Real Ganstas (3 months ago)
How irresponsible. That kid needs education , health care , and friends Why should anyone pay for to rescue irresponsible adults who put their kids in danger

Why the fuck do people give 2 shits about how these parents are raising their kids when so many of the same people think we should have the right to kill an un born baby for absolutely no good reason
Kira Z (3 months ago)
I think it’s fun for them as kids but once they are teenagers it’s gonna be difficult. They need to go to school and yes there is online school but your basically isolating them from social interactions. Yes they probably stop once or twice a week but they won’t make any friends or have a job so they can’t start a family or anything like that and as they are older money is gonna keep going up. I don’t know if this is 5he most logical thing to do. Now they probably are gonna get a house once the kids are old enough to go to school (if they care about all those reasons they said before) but then what’s the point of having to start all over again and get a house and furniture and a job to pay rent and electrify after you already sold everything before. It just doesn’t play out in my mind.

Just bc someone parents differently, doesn't mean its wrong... there are to many children in horrific conditions much more so than living on a boat.

A lot of pedophiles have started this movement. Molesting their kids out at sea, where no one can help them.

test 152687 (3 months ago)
the kids will get nuts pretty soon - unless they would spend the day at land at a real school with other peers. social interaction with other people outside of your (small) family is essential

Did they found one piece😂
TakingItEasy (3 months ago)
Experienced sailors maybe - but not doctors and nurses to handle medical emergencies. As they found out. Have these people considered pirates? Storms? They are justifying their choice. If they are happy, great but the kids will have no socialisation with friends.

Although it’s their life they can do whatever they want but in future one of their children might tell them that he or she never want that life , I mean it’s like piercings your kids ..... you can’t impose a certain life style on your kids just because you like it
