Replacing our Mainsheet block

Well, this will set you back about $250! Worth the money considering blocks do ALL the heavy lifting on board and make sailing life a little easier. Bearings and sheaves are commonly destroyed by UV rays or corrosion. As you can see the old one was prettyyyyyyy worn out and with little effort this

What a winch

We’re still (anxiously) waiting on the Coast Guard to get their shit together! “Technical difficulties” is our latest update on expediting our paperwork. So, while we wait at the marina we’ve continued to work through some projects that were a little lower on the priorities l

Whats Up?

It’s a bird, its a plane, it’s…Brent up in the air! 🙂 One of the last big projects on our to-do list was going up the mast to install the AirMar, a system for weather monitoring. Then the iKommunicate and iKonnect (wireless access point) inside the main cabin. All of this tech

Boat work – Before & After

Our time at the marina has flown by! Since moving aboard we immediately jumped into our long list of project to-dos. Starting with organizing, cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning. It’s been non-stop updates to the boat interior – decor, painting, wood staining, installing, repairing, a

Journey through our Galley – Food

One thing about living on a sailboat is that people ask you some really funny questions. Oddly enough, the most common one has been “What do you eat on a boat”? No, we’re not stockpiling ramen noodles, haha. Although I did enjoy telling people that at first just for the reaction. And we li

The Questions I Get…

So this might fall into the category of “touchy feely posts”. 😆 Hard to believe it’s been a month since I quit my job, sold my belongings, drove cross country, and took on an entirely new life and routine. Speaking of, I’ve been asked A LOT lately by family and friends, “

New solar shower

New solar shower

Our new 10-gallon solar shower bag arrived a few days ago! We previously had a 5-gallon and wanted to get a larger one that will allow for multiple showers. This is essentially our hot water heater while we’re out cruising, it uses the sun and heat locking material inside to heat the water and

Choosing a dinghy

Choosing a dinghy

Right before our cross country road trip, we found a great deal on an electric outboard motor. Our dinghy previously had a Tohatsu outboard motor which was loud, heavy, stinky, not to mention unreliable. We ended up getting a second free dinghy boat out of the deal, score! Which means we now have tw

All eyes on Hurricane Irma

Today officially marks the END of hurricane season (boat owners rejoice!) and how bizarre this hurricane season was! What devastating events. No stranger to hurricanes as we’re both Florida natives, however, I’ve been out of the sunshine state for quite a while, living in CA/TX. While B
