Great Bahama Bank + Birds Cay

Wow are we seeing the Bahamas in an entirely different light lately! After an adventurous Gulf crossing to Bimini, this particular passage had us really excited because we got to cross the Great Bahama Bank! The Great Bank is made of limestone deposits and, scientists believe, was exposed to the ai

Bimini…Spring Break 2018

Our original plan was to start traveling in February, but with some additional projects, boat work, etc it didn’t work out that way and we didn’t want to rush the process. Instead our Gulf stream crossing just happen to align with Spring Break. Now I didn’t think of Bimini as a Spring Brea

Maiden Voyage of S/V Sea Duction

We’re officially cruisers! I cannot believe it’s been almost two weeks since making our first crossing! We sailed her from Royal Palm Marina in Dania Beach, FL  and over to Bimini, Bahamas! Our first stop in our Bahamas adventure. The trip over is a fairly easy sail, however weather win

A beautiful day at the office

We are going somewhere, people! The Coast Guard finally sent us our paper work 🙂 Beyond excited, as we’ve been anxiously waiting for this moment. After 58 days, we’ve finally taken the boat out of the slip. Sea trials are meant to test the “seaworthiness” of the boat, electronics

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
