We love having friends, family, guests or extra crew on our boat but we find it runs a lot more smoothly when they know what to expect when they are living on our boat. Some of these things we cover in this episode are the use of water, food, resources, fitting in boat maintenance, as well as the fun times we have when other people join us. Please let us know what other things you would add from your experiences or what you would like to know about before you got onto someones boat.

In Pt01 of this series I replaced the old depth transducers with the Airmar NMEA 2000 Intelligent Triducer. https://youtu.be/OS8Vh17UH08 In Pt02 of this series I swapped out the old B&G mast head unit, for the Raymarine short arm wind vane transducer. https://youtu.be/nC2v-8JXUpQ In THIS maintenance blog (3rd and final in this video series) I upgrade the old NMEA0183 B&G transducer instrument controller and dials for the new NMEA 2000 (Seatalknng) Raymarine ITC-5 unit and i70 Instrument Display and wire in the transducers. I also connect the NMEA0183 converter to the backbone and splice in the old GPS unit and ST7000 autopilot.. and get rid of a lot of redundant wiring in the process! ______________________________ 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.

We finally set sail from mainland Spain to the Balearic Islands. After getting our anchor stuck and filling our boat full of food, we head down to the Island of Formentera to swim in the crystal clear turquoise waters of this paradise island. We have a lot of fun sailing, swimming and hanging out with our friends Herbie and Maddie @RiggingDoctor and the kids learn lots of new skills including drone flying, all about the salt flats and an intro to kite surfing. Finally, we say goodbye to our friends and celebrate Matts 50th birthday party on the beach as the sun sets !

In this series of maintenance blogs swap out an NMEA 0183, B&G through-hull fitting, mast head unit, transducer control unit and dials with units from the Raymarine T70216 Pack. In Pt01 of this series I replaced our old NMEA 0183, B&G depth transducers with Airmar NMEA 2000 Intelligent Triducer. See Pt01 here: https://youtu.be/OS8Vh17UH08 In this maintenance blog (pt02) I swap out the old B&G mast head unit, for the Raymarine short arm wind vane transducer. It's not always easy working at the top of the mast, but luckily we were in a marina, which means less swell we and some some boat friends close by to borrow some essential tools for the job! In the next maintenance blog (Pt03) I will be replacing the old B&G transducer controller with the Raymarine ITC-5 transducer controller, and also replacing the old B&G dials with a single Raymarine I70 multifunction display unit. __________________________ 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.

We arrived in Xabia, the coast of Spain, with a very strange sound coming from the main sail furler which meant Woody really had to crack on and get to work on it. After spending a fair amount of time and energy taking it apart, we had to get all the spare parts ordered from England and shipped to our dear friends address in Javea ( Xabia). We were so grateful to be able to use their address because living on a sail boat, we do not have an address and this can make things very complicated. Anyway, Woody hates doing lots of maintenance so while he spent the next 3 weeks doing maintenance and fixing the main sail furler, we decided to think about all the things that bothered us about living on a boat.

How do you swap out through-hull fittings with different diameter transducer housings without any instructions? Well, we had to do just that after finally deciding to replace our old NMEA 0183, B&G transducers and dials with Raymarine NMEA2000 transducers and the I70 multifunction display from the Raymarine T70216 Pack. We didn't want to drill any more holes in the hull, so the original through-hull seemed the best place to install the new transducer. However, installation meant first removing the old 45mm plastic housing and widening the hole by 5mm to make way for the 50mm housing to fit a multi function 'Airmar intelligent tri' speed / depth / temperature transducer. A fibreglass conical 'mount' or wedge also had to be made for the hull of the boat to hold it parallel to the sea bed. __________________________________ 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.

Our sailing continues along the Spanish Coast from Altea to Javea ( also known as Javea). The kids get on the helm and steer the boat...even with "No Licence To Sail" as Yewan points out. Then we reconnect with old friends and have a real blast for a couple of weeks while the children reflect on what it is like living aboard and missing friends. While this is all going on, a group of youths try to steal our dinghy but never mind because we get to do some washing in. REAL washing machine! It makes it all worth it !

With our YouTube channel at almost 10k subscribers, we thought we'd use this week's vlog to thank everyone for subscribing and looking back over the last three years of our video blogging experience and our journey to this fantastic milestone. Severe travel restrictions are effecting much of the world at the moment and most travels & adventures bloggers are struggling. So I guess us sailors are more fortunate than most. But while we've managed to maintained a regular and consistent upload of family travel and sailing content we've also fallen foul of the shifting sands of YouTube's policies and even squabbled over editorial differences! So here's to our Youtube buddies, especially @Rigging Doctor @Ryan & Sophie Sailing @SV Impavidus for help and advice along our journey and we hope you enjoy our little blogging retrospective.. and of course here's to the next milestone!

After finishing schooling in the nearest town, the boys had a go at racing the happy cat on their optimist before more high winds were forecast so we decided to move on further North and discreetly cross provinces to find shelter. We soon realised that the coastguards were more concerned with how we tied onto the buoy than where we had come from or where we were going. The journey along the Spanish coast was full of tankers and we found ourselves dodging huge ships in an unofficial shipping channel. In this video, we try to talk a bit more about how we set our sails...after a special request from one of our patreons.....we hope you like it !

We finally set sail away from our winter mooring now that travel restrictions have eased after the lockdown in Spain. The wind is great for our first sail, we don't catch any fish but we do hear a PanPan on the VHF which is not uncommon in this area. When we arrive in the beautiful nature reserve of Cabo De Gata, we anchor near our friends ( Kirlana & Naos) and have great BBQ on the beach and go for a hike to the nearest town. During the next few days, the wind picks up and some of our friends leave to find more shelter. We stay at the anchorage another night and as forecast, the wind calms down so that we are able to have ago on our friends Happy Cat.

Although we made some general boat yard blogs, here we delve deeper into the maintenance of the hull - the epoxying, antifouling, gelcoat and repairs we did. So if you're not a boat maintenance fan.. this probably isn't the video for you! The trickiest job was measuring, taping and repainting the waterline. We noticing our sailboat's stern was sitting heavy in the water and blistering was beginning to appear above the antifoul line.. so urgent action was needed! We used Hempels polyenamel paint to do the rub-rail and bootline, Gelshield 2 pack epoxy for osmosis protection and Jotuns Seaforce 90 for the antifoul. It wasn't the only tricky job we tackled. We also repaired gelcoat damage under one of the chainplates and beneath the rubbing strake. What an exciting life we lead! :/ _____________________ 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.

We laughed when we watched the "Doomsday Preppers" series about survivalists preparing for natural disasters and economic collapse. Then came the Covid 19 / Coronavirus pandemic and suddenly those prepper families didn't seem so crazy, and we wondered what WE would do if there was to be a second lockdown and we find ourselves stuck at sea or at anchor with no access to land. In this video we describe how we use solar energy and and inverter to provide power to cook and keep our fridge and freezer going. We take you on one of our big shopping trips and show how we pack it all into our boat. We even try our hand at fishing.. with little success :/ While hanging out with Maddie and Herbie from Rigging Doctor, we practise some art / craft / haircutting skills and Herbie even teaches us how to make yoghurt at sea.

00:57 - Skip Intro 17:20 - Skip Straight to our 12 Top Tips! Although we've blogged our journey from the very start, it occurred to us that we'd never made a dedicated video about the process of buying our boat. While we've pilfered some footage from earlier blogs to tie the story together there's a lot of unseen footage from our trans-global boat searches and the hitherto untold story of how our deposit money went missing for 12 long weeks in a suspected wire transfer hacking scam.. something the YBAA told us was a regular occurrence! So watch this and learn from our mishaps, because buying a second hand boat can be a confusing and costly business. We spent too much on travel, searches and surveys. We made many mistakes but believe we bought the right boat in the end. In this blog we re-visit the process we went through and what we learned from the experience. In the end we give 12 top tips that - if we'd known during OUR boat search - would have saved us a lot time, money, stress and would have enabled us to start sailing the world a lot sooner! ___________________ 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.
