When moving from a house to a boat you’ll be getting rid of a LOT of things, but you’ll also be buying a lot of boating related items as well. The list can be very long, but here are some of the things we have on board that we love and use the most!
Bimini would soon be behind us as we set off for our longest day passage yet- 83 miles that took…
This month’s budget recap is brought to you by… Michael! (Brittany usually writes it). Let me know if you think it’s entertaining/funny/awesome.
In the world of cruising boats, Caframo fans seem to be praised as the most efficient fans out there, however they seem to have short life spans. We have 4 such fans on our boat, and when we moved aboard none of them worked.
It is halfway through February, but I am finally finishing this post on how our budget fared in January. In January we decidedly changed one thing about our budget: we would stop docking at marinas! We spent too much on marina fees in December, and we knew we could not keep that up. Since January 1st, we have not stayed at one marina or even a mooring field. We have been very happy with this decision and we know it has saved us money and caused us to learn how to live on a boat more sustainably.
I go bilge diving, again, in search of the oil fill cap I dropped.
When we bought our boat, we knew something needed to be done about the electronics. It’s a pretty good lineup, and completely functional, but dated.
Suffice to say, taking the ICW all the way from Norfolk to Charleston was not plan A. I think we are on plan E or F by now, but that is what weather will do.
This month we got back to the boat after spending 3 weeks in Houston selling off the rest of our belongings! Check out the boat projects we’ve finished since moving back aboard.
Saying “adventure” always makes it sound like more fun right? Well this wasn’t too much fun, but it was necessary, and I’m glad we got it fixed.
