For fourteen years, since we bought SY Esper, we’ve been travelling on planes with suitcases full of boat bits…
From a windlass last year (which Liz had to dismantle and put into two suitcases for it to fit within airline maximum baggage regulations) to clips, snaps, shackles and winch handles, we’ve been flying back and forth across the globe carrying boatloads of equipment.
We’ve known yachties who have managed to disembark with outboard motors and dinghies. Once, in India, Jamie brought our Portabote from the UK. Folded up inside its case, it looked like a surfboard. The airline was happy to class it as “sporting goods” and didn’t charge us a sou. Result!

Liz’s latest trip was no exception. This time, as well as bits for the boat, she had lots of photographic goodies, including her own new Canon M50, as well as plenty of equipment upgrades for all our video shooting and editing.
Thanks for reading our blog and supporting us, we hope you see the difference in our videos to come. And a big shout out to all our Rum Funders and Patrons, without whom none of this would be possible.
