How do you change an impeller on a water pump? My advice is if it ain't broke don't fix it! I wish I'd heeded my own advice on this maintenance job. A yearly engine service showed the impeller was fine, but I thought I'd change it anyway. WHY?! To be fair the pulley was already cracked so needed replacing so I guess it wasn't all wasted time :/ PLEASE NOTE: YouTube have disabled comments on family channels because they sometimes feature kids.

We set sail on the tail end of some stormy weather and stow the dinghy on deck to make sure we don't lose it! We sail for 4 days with some pretty strong winds and big swell and decide to skip Sardinia on our way to Sicily as the wind is in the right direction. Without a weather forecast, we get caught out in a storm and our main sail gets another rip in it when we accidently gybe. It is scary not knowing how long the storm is going to last as we are quite tired after several nights at sea on night watches keeping warm and the boat and children safe. We are a family with 3 children and make our own electricity and water, homeschool the kids and do our own boat maintenance. Our dream of cruising and exploring the world's oceans is matched with a desire to live a more off-grid and sustainable lifestyle. A background as RYA instructors, flotilla skippers and RNLI crew only partly prepared us for the challenges of this live-aboard lifestyle!

While waiting for a weather window to cross from the Balearics to Sardinia, we sail to Isla De Cabrera ( Goat Island) and apply for a permit to stay the night. That evening, we have a drink or an expensive nightmare as described by Woody and the next morning, we head off to trek to the castle on one side of the Island to the lighthouse on the other. We learn a lot about how conservation is protecting the flora and fauna on this Island. We are a family with 3 children and make our own electricity and water, homeschool the kids and do our own boat maintenance.

Deciding where to mount our Viking 8-man liferaft, was relatively easy. HOW to instal it was the difficult part. Drilling holes into the deck of a boat and cutting holes in it is NOT a decision you make lightly.. especially when you don't know what you're drilling into - but here's how we fixed our biggest, heaviest and most expensive piece of safety equipment onto the foredeck in the hope that it will never, ever need to be used!

Tenders (RIBs, Dinghies) are vital to the life of live-boards (as we discovered last year when we didn't have one anymore!) So we were thrilled to finally afford a good quality (Hypalon), hard bottom (aluminium) RIB that can take the entire family. Thanks to a quick payout form our insurance company, a great deal from Yacht Centre Palma and some domestic budget cuts, we bought a new AB Lammina 9.5AL hypalon dinghy.. which replaces our (destroyed) Caribe from last season :/ So this is just a short unboxing and test drive video to show you some of it's features and what we think of it.

After a long winter, we drop our lines and head East. We have to deal with a ripped main sail, an over heating engine and kids that get more lively as the days go by. Night watches seem to be the best time for peace and quiet but the amazing wildlife we see keeps us all going. It takes a while for the children to get their sea legs so they feel sea sick but Mum and Dad are too tired to do much as they keep the watches going and repair the breakages. We are still at sea after 3 days and 3 nights..trying to get to the Balearics...! We are a family with 3 children and make our own electricity and water, homeschool the kids and do our own boat maintenance.

We wintered in Almerimar marina on the Costa del Sol. Although Almerimar is probably more famous for it's miles of greenhouses and Golf Resort, we explored further afield and went walking in the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Alcazaba of Almeria. We also enjoyed the beach, the kite surfers and tried out the local skate park.

We quickly discovered that USB devises on a boat are a necessity - not a luxury and our screen time actually increased when we moved aboard. The two USB plugs we had on the boat were woefully inadequate to cope with charging our phones, tablets, kindles, GoPro and other devises that accompany a modern, mobile lifestyle which would end up in a pile on the nav table. So the only solution was to install a whole lot more outlets for our USB devises. Instead of running more wires through already congested conduits, we replaced the 70's style 24v bedside lights with car 24v USB plugs and here's how we did it!

Our #Eumenia / #Eudora washing machine finally gave up. We tried repairing it but after 20 years it was probably long overdue for a replacement! So we ordered a mini Candy Automatic but of course, it didn't quite fit so a few modifications to the boat were needed. It wasn't all plain sailing, so see how we got on!

We don't like seeing plastic thrown away on the beach, in the ocean or anywhere for that matter because we know how harmful it can be to wildlife. So along with a community of cruisers, we all decided to clean one part of the beach in Almerimar, Spain where the wind had recently blown a lot of plastic into one corner of the beach. We concentrated on this nine acre section. Eventually, after 40 bags of rubbish, collected by 29 people, 5 children and 6 dogs, we left the beach clean.

To visit the Alhambra Palace in Spain, you need to be very organised and buy your tickets in advance and make sure you arrive early to see the Nazri Palace and gardens. It is worth the effort and like a scene from Game of Thrones. On our first attempt to enter the Alhambra Palace, the tickets are sold out and it was raining so the second attempt we bought our tickets in advance and treated ourselves to a Hotel! We try a traditional Andalucian breakfast of tostada and then head off to the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. When we arrive we did not realise it takes 15 minutes to get to the entrance to the Nazri Palace and you have a time allocated on your ticket which you have to stick to. So we run! Inside the Nazri Palace, there are many rooms , each with a different purpose for the 24 sultans that were living there with their wives and families. Not all sultans died a natural death however. After the Moors left peacefully and Ferdinand and Isabella moved in, it was here that the voyage of Christopher Columbus was endorsed which led to him landing in the Americas. The "Generalife" is separated from the main palace, it was a summer palace where a wide variety of vegetables and fruit were grown and it was a place to relax in the beautiful gardens. Water was a symbol of power as it was scarce but the whole palace had plenty, supplied by a natural river source that even had enough pressure to keep the fountains going. We wandered past the Medina which was another whole city within the palace walls where arts and crafts were made as gifts to the court and other visitors. The Alcazaba was the tower that contained the military lodgings and around the edge of the wall was yet another garden of Italian style. It is unbelievable how many gardens there are in the citadel. From the top of the tower, you get a spectacular view of the city of Grenada. This is where the bell tower is situated and great place to spot any enemies but the bell was also a way to notify the city of when to initiate the next shift for irrigating the crops. The Alhambra Palace is well worth a visit, it reminded of a scene of Game of Thrones and we could see why they chose locations in Spain to film this series such as The Bridge at Cordoba as shown in our last episode.

We continue our road tour of Andalucia and visit the spectacular Mosque- Cathedral of Cordoba for some history, religion and cultural studies and then the zoo to learn about the different habits of animals and how they are protected. We arrive in Cordoba, a beautiful city that reminds me of Prague where my Grandma is from. Then we head into the courtyard of the Mosque - Cathedral or Metzquita Catedral as is known in Spanish. The history stretches back for thousands of years, all in one place. There was once a Roman temple here and then the basilica church was built by the Visigoths in 572. After this a Mosque was built by Abd al- Rahman and the space was halved for the two religions. During the reconquista, the mosque was then extended into a Renaissance Cathedral in 1523. After the cultural visit, we took the children to the zoo which they were very excited about. Yewan saw his first elephant in his life and we thought the Babary apes were very similar to the behaviour in our family. The many columns are built from precious stones and the horseshoe arch is built on a wall that faces Mecca.

We return to our life on the boat in Spain and do our bit for the VHF cruisers net before we even managed to unpack. After struggling to be healthy through "dry January", we go on a road trip around Andalucia in Spain. The VHF net is a great way to connect with your local boat community and a good way to help fellow cruisers out as well as benefitting yourself. Our first stop on our road trip was El Torcal in Antequera, an area of strange shaped limestone rocks that were previously covered by water and then rose up due to disruption o the seabed and then the wind and rain eroded them away to form these shapes. We did a fourty five minute walk around the rocks. We stayed the night in an interesting mountain hotel full of stuffed animal heads. The next day we drove to Ronda where we admired the Puente Nuevo 'New bridge' and then visited the largest Bullring in the world ( measured by the 'rueda' - ring and not the amount of people that can be seated ) The children absorbed the information and found ways to understand and relive the experience .
