00:38 Skip Intro After a tour of the boatyard, we get down to the gritty task of giving our sail boat a complete overhaul in the cheapest way possible. We do this by doing all of it ourselves with a little bit of help from our friends. During the time in the yard, a pandemic breaks out and we are locked in but we all cope pretty well by finding ways to entertain ourselves and spend most of our time working on the boat. We start work on the hull with epoxy filler, epoxy paint and anti-foul. The hull sides get polished and the toe rail gets some fibre glass repairs done. The sacrificial rubbing strip gets repaired and painted and the waterline gets raised. The main prop and the bow thruster get serviced and the rear bumper bar is repaired. We even get to replace a new speed, depth, temperature transducer and a new wind instrument with display. All the winches are serviced, the dolphin seat is varnished, the fenders are cleaned and we also get to celebrate Yewan's birthday!

In pt1 ( https://youtu.be/l8APzj_C_FA ) of this series, I dismantled and cleaned the muffler box, exhaust elbow, turbo and checked the impeller and water pump pipes. In pt2 ( https://youtu.be/tUUGm-2ctIw ), I took apart and cleaned the oil cooler. In this video - pt3 - I remove the heat exchanger/aftercooler insert, give it a clean and re-assemble everything back together.. with mixed results. Note to self - count the oil seals coming off - and count the new ones going in! Although these videos show maintenance work on a TMD22 marine diesel engine, many components and assembly techniques are similar across the Volvo Penta range, including: MD22L; MD22P; MD22L-B; MD22P-B; TMD22-B; TMD22P-C; TAMD22P-B; HS25A; HS25A-B; 120S-E; MS2A-E; MS2L-E; MS2B-L; TMD22B PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.

In the first video (Part 1 of 3 videos) I dismantled and cleaned the muffler box, exhaust elbow, turbo and checked the impeller and water pump pipes. I also replaced the water pump gasket and found a lot of calcium deposits inside the pipes In this video (pt2) I take apart and clean the oil cooler by removing the insert from the housing and flushing acid through the tubes. In the next video (pt3) I will dismantle and clean the heat exchanger and reassemble everything.. hopefully! ____________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.

So how does a cooling system on a marine diesel engine work and how do you dismantle it to give it a good clean? In this mini series of maintenance videos, I take apart the raw water cooling system of our Volvo Penta TMD22 and quickly learn it's not as simple as it first seemed. In this first video (Part 1 of 3 videos) I dismantle and clean the muffler box, exhaust elbow, turbo and check the impeller and pipes. I also replace the water pump gasket and find a lot of calcium deposits inside the pipes which could indicate potential problems inside the heat exchanger. In Part 2 I will dismantle and clean the oil cooler. In Part 3 I will dismantle and clean the heat exchanger _____________________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform, regardless of whether the video actually features kids.

We started homeschooling in October 2017 and have been working on it ever since. It is not easy travelling the world by sailboat and schooling your children at the same time but here we show you how we got prepared and then how we have managed it so far. There is always room for improvement but what we did first was to gather up everything we could relating to the school curriculum. Then we brought as many fictional and non fictional books we could. We also brought a stack of art materials and then looked at how kids can learn using resources online and with apps on iphones and ipads. As the months passed we realised that there were other challenges we would have to face such as motivation of our students and the parent teacher dynamic ! But on a good note we realised that the kids were learning above and beyond the normal curriculum, they were learning how to survive by conserving all the essential resources such as water and energy and how to resolve basic problems such as where to park our dinghy to get on shore and shop for essentials...the kind of thing you don't need to worry about when you park your car in the local supermarket car park. We also realised that by interacting with our environment, we can learn a lot more than we can in books because we are experiencing it with all our senses and it is immediate. Okay , I didn't explain all this in the blog but I think it is important to mention .

We’re into our third week of lockdown in the boatyard and restrictions have been tightened even further. At one point toilet facilities were closed and we were even buzzed by a drone. We’re desperate to do the required maintenance on our boat in isolation but police insist that live-aboards stay IN their boats as lockdown is extended by another two weeks. We’re back to homeschooling and staying in contact with other sailboat cruisers via a daily VHF net and it’s a continual struggle to stay sane with three kids onboard. But we’re thankful that we’re all still healthy and have each other, when other folk are going through lockdown in total isolation. Stay safe everyone, wash your hands and know you’re NOT alone in all this!

How is the Coronavirus pandemic affecting us as a sailing family? Well, we're currently in Spain - one of the most severely affected countries in Europe. When you live on a sailboat plans constantly change, it's just part of the lifestyle, but the recently declared 'state of emergency' here in Spain means for the next few months (when we would normally be starting the new sailing season) we may possibly be trapped.

We wanted to sail around the world with our family and nearly bought a Catamaran but decided it was not the right boat for us. There were many different reasons and some of these were confirmed by other Monohull sailors. Here we have a 'friendly 'discussion about the pros and cons and share our thoughts with you.

The current Greece / Turkey border crisis reminds me of our encounter recently at the Greece Turkey sea border off the coast of Kos. Not exactly 'Greece under attack' as some media reports have been saying but it demonstrates how it's not just about rubber dinghies full of immigrants or refugees. This jetskier easily evaded the Hellenic Coast Guard high speed boarder patrols, dropped off a passenger on Kos and returned to Turkish waters in the space of about 20 minutes! Now we're in Spain the border crisis feel just as bad with near daily Maydays on our VHF from migrant boats entering Spanish waters from Morocco. _________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.

Life in a marina in winter isn't much fun - even if it is in the Mediterranean. We're spending our second winter in Almerimar after our attempts to sail the Atlantic last season were thwarted by maintenance and health issues. So we put the kids in a local bi-lingual school and slowly worked our way through our maintenance list. There were plenty of parties and BBQs with our fellow live-aboard cruisers between the storms and Santa even brought us wetsuits in time for a Christmas day swim... oh, and an Optimist Dinghy for the kids! A trip to Benidorm and a visit from a Spanish galleon made for a VERY enjoyable Christmas and New Year break, but it's now back to the grind before the new season begins!

We love sailing and so do the kids so we bought a new sailing boat! We also found that the local sailing club was more expensive, for 3 kids to sail for 2 months than buying a second hand optimist. We are so excited about this new toy and hope that it will provide hours of fun after their morning schooling..who knows, they may even enter a few races as we sail around the world.

In this blog I talk about preventing illness and injuries, how to prepare your boat in event of illness or accidents happening. This blog is also about things that can trigger anxiety for many people and a few tips on how to prepare, manage and cope with those feelings aboard a boat You would think that living on a sailboat would be conducive to a really healthy life and everyone would want to do it. It is active, out in the fresh air, you eat good food from local markets and the stresses of a land based life simply disappear. However, it might not be that simple....

This is a short review and Do-It-Yourself maintenance video on how to service a Honda 2.3HP outboard - one of the lightest and simplest outboards on sale today. It's light (only 13.5kg), air cooled (no impeller to change!) and has only one cylinder (only one spark plug to change)! Although other makes of engine in this class are slightly different, the main components are basically the same. Anyone with a reasonable level of technical ability should be able to service an outboard but please check you’re not invalidating any warranties first. And if you’re in any doubt, even after watching this maintenance video, then contact your local dealer or repair shop. _____________________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.

This is the big question that everyone asks....how do you manage to buy a boat and then go sailing without a "proper" land based job? How much does it cost to live aboard a sailing boat and how can you earn money or boost funds while travelling? There is no single answer to this question but in this video, we look at how we managed to get a boat in the first place, what it roughly cost to do it up and what our monthly budget is for each category. We also give the percentage of costs we have spent in the last year, an amount per annum that you can estimate for a family of 5.

The second part of the highlights from our 2019 travel blogs. Sailing back from Turkey to Spain in 2019. If you missed the first one - watch it here: https://youtu.be/QsUtLueyKp4 Having sailed quickly from Spain to Turkey and visiting many interesting places in the last blog, we struggled sailing East to West with strong winds either on the nose or no wind at all for most of the way. A three week wait for good winds in Sardinia also put us way behind schedule and reduced our options for crossing the Atlantic. It didn't stop us visiting some spectacular places though, including Roman cities, active volcanoes and beautiful beaches. As with pt 01, we each had our own personal favourite moments and it was difficult to include everything. It's a shame YouTube's family unfriendly policy means we unfortunately haven't included many of the kids favourite bits - meeting up with other kids - as it would mean we have to re-categorise the video '..for kids' :/ You might also notice that the maintenance bits have been left out as we wanted a lighthearted retrospective of our journey - but look out for new dedicated maintenance blogs in the new year!

Some of the highlights from our 2019 blogs. Traveling from Spain to Turkey in 2019. We sailed quite far this year and visited many interesting places so we've had to split this retrospective into two parts, so watch out for #60 Best of the Blogs pt 02 - in the other direction - East to West! Even though we've tried to included the most interesting, popular and personal bits of life aboard our boat in 2019, it's impossible to include everything. We each had our own personal favourite moments. The kids favourite bits were meeting up with other kids, but YouTube's family unfriendly policy means we unfortunately haven't included much of that - shame. For Dad, the most 'interesting' moments were maintenance related, but for most people that's just boring, so they've been left out too.. but look out for new dedicated maintenance blogs in the new year!

It's the end of the season so time to winterise the yacht. Although we live aboard during the winter months the systems still need inspecting, checking and servicing.. and things need replacing. Winterising is all about readying the boat for the winter months - not to be mistaken for the 'winter maintenance list' which is all the fixing and mending that ALSO needs doing during this time.. a list that mysteriously gets longer no matter how many jobs you tick off the top of the list :/ __________________________ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on most of our video blogs (and on other family channels) due to safeguarding issues regarding minors on the YouTube platform.
