#Sailboat #BoatRefit #Boatlife

This week we tackle a steering issue that has been plaguing us since our Pacific crossing.  We reinstall the fuel tanks, restock the freezer, gain back a modern-day luxury, and service the engines.  We’re making progress my friends, very good progress!

🍍 Food Prep
I am a big fan of reusable silicone bags.  I have them in all shapes and sizes.  I prefer them over classic Tupperware style containers.  There are no lids to fiddle with, they take up less storage space, they are plastic-free (made of 100% silicone), they’re oven and freezer safe too.

Best silicone bags:

⛽ Fuel Tank Fix

A huge thanks to everyone for all the suggestions.  As mentioned, our fave and wish-we-had-access-to product is the fuel tank liner.  We will most likely remove the tanks and coat them with a similar product once we get to New Zealand or Australia.

We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid and exploring the world for 10 years.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is overly talented, smart, rich, lucky, or retired. But that doesn’t stop us from reaching far-flung destinations, having wild #adventures and managing everything that makes living aboard a moving vessel possible.
We’re two ordinary people that just so happen to live an extraordinary life.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.
