Making Money While Sailing – Ep. 46

How do you afford to travel on a sailboat? What do you do for work? What is your budget? Did you have debt? How did you untether yourself from an office? In this episode, we share how we built 3 separate remote income streams which allowed us us to jump on a boat and go cruising.

Glad THAT’S Over – Ep. 38

This one is bittersweet. On one hand, the battery upgrade is a smashing success. Kirk completes the installation of our new battery bank, and we now we have all the juice we need. On the other, our arch project is a complete and utter disaster.

We’re a Sailboat Again! – Ep. 33

We put the mast back up and we’re pretty dang stoked about it. The electrical is reconnected, the boom goes back on, and Kirk takes a stab at tensioning our standing rigging himself. Soulianis is finally feeling more like a sailboat again.

It’s the Gulf of Mexico! – Ep. 32

Ooo this has been a long time coming… We make it to SALTWATER! After leaving the freshwater of Lake Michigan and traveling 1300 miles down the rivers (Mississippi and all the rest!), we’ve made it to the Gulf of Mexico!

Tackling the Mighty Mississippi – Ep. 28

We were apprehensive of the Mighty Mississippi. How would our boat handle in the swift 4-5 knot current? What would navigating around the commercial traffic be like?

All Alone… Illinois River to the Mississippi – Ep. 27

As far as we know, we’re the last sailboat on the river. The only other watercraft are tows with barges, a couple motorboats being delivered for winter storage, and bunch of duck hunters. It’s a bit desolate, but beautiful. It feels like we have the river all to ourselves.
