We wanted to share the reason our boat exploded so that it won't happen to you.

Magnus continues the job of sorting out the cutting of the new v-berth mattress to fit Nutshell. Wendy paints the locker lids to tidy them up a bit. We take Nutshell out to Stonehaven Bay and Nara Inlet on Hook Island and explore the stunning rock formations. It’s wonderful to be back on the water. Thanks for watching.

A mystery box arrives and Magnus goes to collect it and returns with a very, very long box! What can it be? It's our new Kapten Boat Collar for Peanut IV. This will make her very stable and so a much safer tender to have in the Kimberley. The last thing you want to do is to fall into shark infested waters! Peanut IV will also act as our life raft, so the boat collar will keep us stable. Magnus makes a start on the v-berth mattress project. He does the measuring up ready for cutting the beautiful memory foam mattress that we have bought to upgrade the 40 year old foam mattress in the v-berth to something rather gourmet. Magnus then spends the next few days racing to install the Kapten Boat Collar before an impending cyclone arrives. He needs to get out to Nutshell to secure her lines and batten down her hatches before the cyclone hits! Oh, yes and Magnus has a taste of his newest brew which is absolutely delicious!

In our quest to nail down great recipes and techniques for our Kimberley trip, Wendy makes pesto out of the Woolworth’s basil which began as little seedlings on Nutshell. This pesto will be put into a sterilised jar and covered in olive oil. We’ll see how it survives. Wendy continues with the dodger and sews in a clear. We head out to the Whitsunday Islands to Stonehaven Anchorage with our youngest daughter, Emily, on board and have a poke around with Peanut IV. We are testing out Nutshell and Peanut IV. We play a little beach cricket, because we can and Magnus fixes the cable on Wally so we have steering again, yay! It’s a wonderful few days away, and apart from a small fire in the engine bay, Nutshell and Peanut IV perform superbly! Thanks for watching.

Wendy makes a start on Nutshell’s dodger by working out how it is put together and how she can fix it, MacGgyver style, with existing materials. The dodger got a bashing when we crossed the Pacific and much of it was slashed. It will be a while before I get it all finished, but this episode shows the start of the repair process. Wendy also begins to fix the small holes and stitching on the headsail. Magnus hits the kitchen and prepares a ton of chicken curry to be canned for our trip to the Kimberley. After the initial canning tests, we now know that it is possibly better to cook the food and remove excess liquid so more will fit into the jars. We can also add back the moisture when we open them and heat the meals up. We take Nutshell out on her first little outing to the Airlie Beach jetty, to test the gearbox installation and fill up with much needed water. That’s all for this episode. Next week we sail off to the islands. Thanks for watching.

The gearbox re-assembly is finished and she gets a new coat of paint. We manhandle her onto Nutshell ready for installation. Magnus does a few canning tests on various meats, some raw, some half cooked and some fully cooked, in readiness for our trip up to the Kimberley. We will have a limited amount of gas, so anything that can help us to reduce our gas usage is helpful. By cooking the meat before canning, we won’t need to waste gas frying it too much at the other end. Magnus also does a little test on vacuum sealing fresh kaffir lime leaves. Peanut IV gets loads of TLC too and ends up quite specky! Thanks for watching.

It’s time to make a start on putting Nutshell’s gearbox back together. This is a workshop episode for those of you who are interested in seeing how the Nutshell gearbox goes back together with new seals, clutch plates, thrust plate, bearings and various other new bits and pieces.

After the shock of the explosion on Nutshell, a wonderful couple, Cassie and Tony, invited us out on their yacht for a day sail in the Whitsundays. It was the tonic that we needed to take stock and enjoy the beauty around us and be thankful that we were both safe. I step onboard Nutshell for the first time since the explosion to see the damage firsthand. Thankfully this was after Magnus had tidied it up so it would be a less harrowing experience. We remove the dodger on Nutshell ready to replace the ‘opaque’ clears with ones that we can actually see through! The emptying of the boat continues. Thanks for watching and thank you all for your wonderful, kind comments. We will rebuild her and we will sail again!

It’s amazing how one day can change so much. Magnus went onboard Nutshell to do some work. He put the kettle on and then came on deck to check the mooring line. This little act saved his life.

It’s time to make decisions on the modifications required for Nutshell’s galley. We share our thoughts on what we plan on doing to make the galley more useable and functional and a little bit prettier too. Magnus finally finds a solution for the replacement of the morse cable for Wally, our wind steering system, which is a big win for us. The solution only costs a fraction of the price of a ‘real’ replacement cable. We also begin to gather plants which we will bring aboard Nutshell for when we are in the remote Kimberley region of Australia where there are no shops to pick up supplies along the way. We hope you enjoy this episode.

We take time out from boat jobs and head to the nearby Proserpine Dam for an overnight camp, We put in the red claw nets but the catch is meagre, so we end up cooking curry on the gas fire instead. We hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful part of where we live. We decide that Peanut 3 is a death trap so we find ourselves yet another dinghy.

The weather is calm so we decide to move Nutshell off her first mooring and on to a sturdier, more permanent one, so that we can carry out the boat jobs in relative safety. Magnus builds a mock up for our roof top tent for our land based travel within Australia. It’s something that he has been working on for quite some time and now it is going to come to life!

After looking around for quite some time we finally find a tinny at the right price and go ahead and purchase it. We need an aluminium boat for The Kimberley. Unfortunately Peanut 2 won't survive a crocodile attack! Magnus takes the new tinny for a test and discovers that it is riddled with holes! So, it gets a great deal of TLC over the next few days.

The weather has been very windy since we’ve been back in Airlie Beach so we haven’t had the opportunity to move Nutshell and remove and work on the broken gear box. It’s a good forecast so we head out and move her around the corner on to a mooring. Magnus works on her starter motor, again, and gives it loads of TLC!

We are on the last leg of our journey to our home town of Airlie Beach, we can almost see it in the distance, but again, we are becalmed.

We leave the Great Sandy Strait and begin the sail north to Airlie Beach. We have no engine, and the only forward propulsion that we have is with little Evi, Peanut’s outboard. We decide to head out to sea and go north, but there are constant northerlies and we spend much of the time going backwards. It’s not easy for us to simply pull in and wait for better weather, because we don’t have an engine, so we have to choose our anchorages very carefully to make sure that we can both get in, and get out again, safety. After days of northerlies, we pull in to Port Clinton for the night and wait for better weather. 'Windy' predicts a southerly front and we decide to utilise it to get home. But… 'Windy' is not always right! Will we ever get home! Thanks for following along with our journey and, of course, thanks for watching, and especially, thanks for subscribing, liking and sharing.

Now that the drama of the Coast Guard rescue has died down, Magnus gets to work fixing Peanut’s carburettor so that we can continue to head north and out of the Great Sandy Strait into safer, more open waters. There’s a little glitch with the carburettor fix, but in the end Magnus gets Peanut going again and we are able to finally go to land and explore.

The saga continues… After a wonderful time sailing through the Great Sandy Straits, we suddenly hit a snag. Peanut’s engine gives out on us and Magnus can’t get her started. The channel direction suddenly turns and we find ourselves stuck in the narrowest part of the channel with no engine, a strong headwind, and no way to sail out. We are a heavy boat and we need more room to tack than we have available. With the tide rapidly falling, and the bottom getting closer and closer, we have no choice but to call for help!
