We lost our RUDDER and outboard ENGINE on the SAME DAY! — Sailing Yabá #2


We are Ben and MP!
Recently we decided to purchase a two masted 70ft wooden schooner in Brazil. The fun detail about our story is that the boat we bought is sinking and relying on many bilge pumps to survive and we need to lift it onto the dry ASAP to fix what is needed and start our refit.

In this episode we talk about our biggest dilemma so far: lifting the boat in our current location and risking it breaking vs navigating south and risking it sinking PLUS a lot of things that managed to go wrong in one single day PLUS how being surrounded by nice people makes the vibes stay good no matter what!

ODD LIFE FAM: You will definitely enjoy this episode as Duca & Roberta are co-starring with us and we had loads of fun together!
