Knocking Out Boat Projects. So Close To SAILING!
There is light on the horizon! We’re deliriously close to splashing this boat. We’re in that strange headspace where there is still a fair amount of work ahead, but we’re motivated by the progress.
It’s a little reminiscent of the last 24hrs of a long passage. The smell of land is in the air, the horizon is taking on shapes and we’re already plotting our first adventure on solid ground.
Funny how we cannot wait to get out to sea…then can’t wait to get back to land. Humans are funny like that, never satisfied. But, back to the boat projects in the here and now.
This week we tackle a steering issue that has been plaguing us since our Pacific crossing. We reinstall the fuel tanks, restock the freezer, gain back a modern-day luxury and service the engines. It’s boat life at its finest. We’re making progress my friends, very good progress!

🍍 Food Prep
I am a big fan of reusable silicone bags. I have them in all shapes and sizes. I prefer them over classic Tupperware style containers. There are no lids to fiddle with, they take up less storage space, they are plastic-free (made of 100% silicone), they’re oven and freezer safe too.
I have a couple of different brands I have purchased over the years but the one I showed you in the video is hands down the best.

⛽ Fuel Tank Fix
A huge thanks to everyone for all the suggestions. As mentioned, our fave and wish-we-had-access-to product is the fuel tank liner. We will most likely remove the tanks and coat them with a similar product once we get to New Zealand or Australia.
