jason and nikki wynn move into new HH44 catamaran


It’s been 2 years since we put down a deposit for our HH44 Catamaran.  Now the big acceptance day is finally here, and we don’t have even a moment to soak it all in.

We have exactly 4 days to move into a brand-new boat, prepare for our first big passage, provision up and sail out of China. 🫨 It’s a tall order.  There is nothing worse than a sailor on a schedule.  And we are on an extremely tight schedule.  Our only option now is to pull it all together in time.

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

    So glad you two finally made it on to your new boat, Harrah!!! 😁🐱😉 So Awesome, too bad you weren’t able to stay for Chinese New Year I know that it’s a spectacular event, maybe next year you can be there and film it. But you have something much more important for you both, YOUR BRAND NEW BOAT ⛵. You must be so excited😁 Look forward to more vlogs and adventures! Take care ❤

    Well done you two….Happy Birthday Nikki

  • Alan Solomon

    Wow. Really excited to see you at this point. It has been a long time coming.
    It will all work out perfectly. Remember, you are in a hurry to get out of China, not in a hurry to put everything away. It is a process.
    I know you want it all neat, completed and finished but the priority is to get out of China now.
    I am sure Casey has that in mind and he will remind you of that. Everything is as smooth as Nikki’s favorite B & J ice-cream, which I cannot remember what flavor that is! 🤷‍♂️
    Happy coming week and beyond,

    My advice for moving in, since I’ve done this a few times with RV life (as have you)- throw it all someplace it won’t knock around and get going. Sort it as you sail and when you get to the next place on the map – it’s what we do. Even when you think you know where it’ll all go, a new RV/boat means rethinking a LOT. It takes me a few weeks to get things ‘in place”, and then another week or so moving things that don’t work where I thought they would.

    I’m feeling the excitement and chaos with the overwhelmed brain. We are due to move into our tiny island home and out of the RV at the end of the month. The boxes are stacking up in piles, new stuff, stuff to still do, blah, blah… you totally know because I just watched you doing what we’re doing 🤣🤣🙄😵‍💫, minus the boat and China.

    Congrats! Happy sailing! May the force be with you! Can’t wait for the next video!

    OMFL.. about bloody time right. Cannot wait to see you guys down under. The beer is cold and waiting 😉.

    Hi guys,

    Sanford and Linda the couple who met you two with your cats when you had the front row in the RV park. That front row in San Francisco is now the second row as the first row fell down the hill. Always enjoy your videos. Would like to crew for you two someday. Leaving for Hawaii next month for 3 weeks.

    Congratulations on new boat and successful (?) move-in! After watching this video a question occurred to me: Do any sailors ever use prepared emergency food for provisioning? There are numerous suppliers of dried foods for camping, emergency rations, disaster prepping, etc, that only require water and heat for meal prep. They are often stored in sealed buckets with many servings (150 – 200 or more) that only weigh 10-20 pounds and last up to 25 years in storage. I’ve watched years worth of sailing videos on various channels and have never seen anyone use or even talk about these. I am a keenly interested non-sailor. Seems like it would be very compact, handy, easy to store, easy to use. I realize you can’t go without natural fruits and veggies, fish, etc, for complete nutrition, vitamins, and all. But, sometimes supplies of natural foods and the cost thereof can be difficult. What’s your take on this?

  • Ally

    Can you please identify what the bikes are that you found that fit in that small space? We are looking for something as well but for RV use. Thank you if you can!

    • Curious Minion

      I’m sure they’ll put a link in the gear store once they’ve caught their breath. In the meantime, you might try pausing the video when the bike is shown – might catch the name that way.

  • Pat Parker

    Congratulations both of you and can’t wait to start your new adventures with you.

    Hi there,

    SUPER EXCITED for you two!!! YAY! It has to be so overwhelming, wonderful, and scary at the same time.

    The “EPERB?” Not sure if spelled it right, an idea might be to find the right corner or place and put it in a bracket hanging from the ceiling? Just a thought.

    Can’t wait to see you out on the water sailing your new boat and to see you taking in new sights and experiences!

  • Diane

    So very excited & happy for you! It’s amazing to think 3 years have finally passed and you’re just about on your way! Wishing you both a not-too-crazy week getting organized! Remember, you can change things up in the galley, as you sail, so don’t feel pressured to get it perfect right now! My 2 cents worth! Be happy and be safe!! Diane

    Hello Nicki and Jason:
    I was almost in tears as you introduced Casey and what his help meant to you. I can tell from the Video you are way overwhelmed! You won’t see this in time but I wish you all the best on the passage. I like you have been waiting for this boat. It is beautiful. Permit yourself to move things even after you think you have packed. I retired and we moved, it has taken 2+ years to finish moving in. So I don’t expect you to be done in 4 days. Lots of Love from us. Thank you for making these videos. It is my relief from my week. Bill

    I am so thankful you do not post about weather issues BEFORE you leave. It might turn me into a worrying mom – which I do not want to be.

    You have so much to deal with before Chinese New Year. (I was only trying to organize a packaging shipment and it was extremely stressful, can’t imagine having to move into your home after being away for so long. BREATHE! So much to do, I feel your chaos having a few of those myself right now! Moving into a new space with new stuff and not knowing how it will all work best can be daunting.

    The boat is beautiful! I can’t wait to see how to decorate it, it will be fun to see. All new stuff is exciting!

    Love you! Glad you are finally sailing again and back in your new home.

    Nice birthday gift. Even if you had to purchase it. Happy Birthday!

    Cool. We can identify. You are doing great! I remember moving from our first RV to our bigger, better RV and Chris breaking down because there wasn’t room for everything. It all worked out. Hugs from the Geeks!
