In this episode our day sailing north makes a challenging turn: instead of the usual 8 knots winds and 1-2 foot seas....we run into several hours of 20 knot winds with gusts to 25+ and seas in the 4-5 foot range coming every few seconds...the result of strong winds across a 35-mile fetch of very shallow waters. I guess it happens to every sailor at some point: weather conditions worsen beyond their experience level. What happens? How did we deal with it? What did we learn? Watch and find out!

In this episode we start to insulate our boat and discuss the difference between Aerocel closed foam insulation and reflectix. Insulation keeps a boat warmer in winter and cooler in summer. We also give a glimpse of a 'slice of life' living on the boat as we prepare the boat while we wait for a weather 'window' to depart for our voyage north to refit our sailboat.

In this video I discuss the refit underway of our 1983 Moody 34 sailboat. I break down the three (3) scenarios that the boat encounters in order to identify what each function requires in the way of refit. These three (3) areas are: 1.) the boat at anchor (what does it need to anchor safely & enjoyably?) 2.) the boat in a Marina (what does it need to live in a Marina enjoyably?) 3.) Cruising enroute across distance (what does this boat need to voyage more effectively and safely?) We hope you enjoy it!
