So before we went back in the water Jamie checked the seacocks, right? Yeah, but one decided to fail while we were in the water. On the bright side, better it fail here than out at sea…
Yesterday we went out on a Deben Lugger sailboat into the mangrove river outside Krabi Boat Lagoon. It was a beautiful day for messing about in boats, and a great opportunity to talk through how to prepare your sailboat for storm sailing.
With big increases in traffic and subscriptions we’re dedicating more time into making your visit to followtheboat hassle-free and fast. Come and have a look!
Some days we go backwards and lose our mojo, but then it will all go to plan and we feel great again. Millie is a stoic, sleeping through the chaos and enjoying her view from deck, whether she’s floating next to the pontoon or propped up on the hard.
While the carpenters and stainless team work on the last details of our hard dodger, we’re busy fitting bolts, hoses and more bilge pumps inside our sailboat in an effort to minimise the damage that will happen if we broach in a typhoon during our passage across the Pacific to Alaska and Canada.
A can of beans can kill you. It has the force of a sledge hammer when the boat is bucking or knocked down. Someone we know was killed by one in the Atlantic.
