278: Bavaria Fun Dive Compressor Set up challenge; run off our Inverter and Lithium Batteries?

We bought a Bavaria Fun Dive Compressor and it was a huge challenge to make all the necessary adaptations and properly set it up. This video will show you what changes we made so that the dive compressor runs directly off the inverter and our lithium batteries. And, we would be remiss if we didn’t thank Ian & Gabby (s/v Isla), Joshua (s/v Linnaea) and Jean Marc (Bavaria Fun) for all of their help!

Before leaving Qingdao, China, our home of 4 years, we sold almost all of our earthly possessions and started our international search to find the right sailboat that we would call "home."

277: Will the Insurance Company EVER be happy? Working on the Rigging again in Las Perlas

We are wondering if the insurance company will ever be happy with the rigging changes we are making while on anchor in Las Perlas. We jump through every hoop, but they don’t really respond. The only way to really know is if we file a claim which I hope we never have to do! Check out our video to see what we did and also if our oil leak in the Starboard engine turns out to be a disaster!

276: Why can't we raise the genoa? We attempt to fix this and prep to leave for Las Perlas

The genoa gave us issues trying to raise it just before we left for Taboga and Las Perlas.

275: IT RIPPED IN 8 MONTHS? Trampoline changes and trip the ER

Due to more health issues, we moved into a marina to rest and change out our trampoline. We loved our time at the dock which made life so much easier to get on/off the boat, see sloths, have access to the city, visit doctors, and get things done.

273: Clean, create a mold, epoxy and glass repair; Leopard 44

We had to fix a gelcoat crack and to do so we had to clean the area, chip away old filler and gelcoat, create a mold, mix epoxy and filler, and repair over three days. It was a big project on a small crack. See the artistic and expert work of Andre.
