Life Aboard a Sailboat – Ep. 42

After months spent mostly at docks, we venture out to live on the hook (which happens to be less than a block away from a grocery store, but hey, baby steps). This one has a little bit of everything.

Monthly Cruising Budget: March | Month 9 – Cruising the Panhandle

We left Mobile at the beginning of the month and officially began our saltwater cruising.  We continued our spendthrift in March after having stocked up on food, and wrapping up all of our planned upgrades.  It was good to be on the move and good on our pocketbooks as well. 

Our Love/Hate Relationship with Sailing – Ep. 41

It’s finally starting to feel like we’re cruising! In this episode, we prep for our longest sail yet: 190 miles from St. Joseph Point to Clearwater. We give you a peak inside our ditch kit, install a MOB (man overboard) device in each of our lifejackets, and test our PLB (personal locating beacon).

First Sail in the Gulf of Mexico – Ep. 40

We set off on our first sail in the Gulf of Mexico! After a day trip to Pensacola through the GICW (Gulf Intracoastal Waterway) with Kirk’s pops, we visit Destin via car to inquire about Destin pass.
