living aboard and sailing a trimaran

SAILING OUR FIRST TRIMARAN (full tour)

Our quest for more multihull experience continues and this time we’re the skippers of more hulls than we’ve ever had before!  We are being trusted to transport a 47ft Neel Trimaran from Charleston, South Carolina to Miami, Florida.

Have we ever sailed a trimaran?  No.  Have we ever been skippers of any other vessel aside from our catamaran Curiosity?  Nope!

It’s a wildly different boat from our old catamaran with completely different gear, tech, and maneuverability.  It’s our first delivery gig and it will be a learning experience no doubt.

Today we’re preparing for the big trip and we’re giving you a full tour of this unique vessel that will be our home for the next several weeks.

Thank you for watching!  Ups, downs, and all around, we share it all. If you like what you see, there are lots of ways you can show your support.

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!

    What brand is the washer dryer in the boat. I have been looking for one that small forever and it would be perfect for our RV we use as a weekend home.

    What are your thoughts on Dynema steering cables when Dynema is known to be very vulnerable to abrasion?

    H N Year folks, What and exciting start to 23. Sailing a NEEL. I’ll follow with interest.
    Will be interesting to watch how you keep pots on the glass convection cooker underway. Looks sleek but what holds the pots back from sliding off an edge?

    What dates will you be in st. Augustine? My husband David and I have been watching you since you started sailing. We too are sailors but sail competitively on Wednesday nights out of our sailing club in northern MI. We spend our winters in st. Augustine, FL.

    We love watching your adventures and had the privilege to meet the two of you at Just Catamarans several years ago. Please let us know if you need transportation anywhere or if you need any type of assistance.

    Safe sailing!

    Really enjoying your videos while you are waiting for “your” boat. Learning more about the various vessels than I ever thought I would. While we won’t ever get a boat we are rvers and learn lots of things from your experiences. We’ve just gone from a 42 ft. DP to a 24ft B van! So storage ideas and such are very appreciated. Looking forward to next week’s video, as always. Keep up the great work.

    Thank you for that informative look at a trimaran. My first impression is that the living space looks smaller somehow, but the storage in the outer hulls is huge. Very interesting indeed.
