What Do We Have To Do to Turn This Boat Into a Home? (MJ Sailing – Ep 173)


We’re out at the Viking to take a close look at all of the things we’ll need to complete before we can move aboard her as our temporary home.

In this week’s episode, we’re just about a week away from leaving Annapolis for the holidays, and are making one more trip out to ‘Couch Dream’ to asses a few of the things that will need to be finished before we can move aboard upon our return. We also start tearing apart the v-berth to get a better idea of the rot on the deck there, and take stock of everything that will need to be replaced.

Matt also takes a moment to talk about how we’re doing on the hunt for boat builders insurance, and spoiler alert – it’s still not looking good.

We hope you enjoy this episode, and just like you, we’re eagerly awaiting the point where we can turn our attention to the catamaran as soon as the first container arrives!

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
