S2:E1 Building a DIY Watermaker, Our Hardest Sailboat Project Yet

We build, design, and install our own DIY 50 gph watermaker (desalination system) for our sailboat. This was the hardest project we’ve tackled on our sailboat, but this didn’t stop us from having fun with this episode. Watch until the end to see the best part of our comedic shenanigans!!!!

S2:E2 Bahama Bound – Anchorage Lessons Not Taught in Sailing School

We learn a sailing lesson the hard way when we experience an anchor nightmare! The conditions of our anchorage quickly changed from ideal to the worst days on anchor. Just at the beginning of our sailing journey to The Bahama’s, opposing wind and current causes our anchor bridle to become permanently snagged in our external bow thruster. They don’t teach you this in sailing school! We savor all the moments that brought us to where we are on our journey as we arrive to the shores of The Bahama’s.

S2:E3 Sailing a Tropical Storm After COVID19 Changes Our Sailing Plans

COVID19 forces us to rethink and change our sailing plans. After a month of isolating during The Bahama’s mandated lockdown orders, we finally head back out to sea. While moving our sailboat to the next destination, we cross paths with a tropical storm that no one predicted until it was too late. We sail to our nearest bailout spot, nearly 90 nautical miles away.

S2:E4 Fun Exploring Charleston Before Sailing North in the Atlantic

After our brush with Tropical Storm Bertha, we hide away in the Charleston Harbor Marina. With the help of our electric scooters, we explore and have some fun in Charleston before it’s time to sail again. Together we sail to Winyah Bay where we find a beautiful and secluded anchorage.
