Ah, the captivating realm of boat building, where all the magic happens. Or so we are learning. The biggest advantage to being here for the last stage of our boat build is getting to see all the guts, how it all comes together and learning from the pros. We have been spending A LOT of time with the HH crew and diving into the nitty-gritty details that make these floating marvels worthy of sailing the world’s oceans.
And this week, we take a peek into the heart and soul of boat construction, where every minuscule detail counts and the devil himself hangs out. From design tolerances to why epoxy is superior, we’re pulling back the curtain on the wizardry that goes into building our HH44 and all these vessels.
Getting unfettered access to the HH factory, the people, and the process has been invaluable. This is obviously a highly talented crew and every step of the process is carefully thought out. From the materials they choose to the intricate electrical systems, it’s clear that attention to detail is their secret sauce. Which gives us a ton of confidence in our boat for when the time comes to set sail. Because Ricardo is right, something will inevitably fail. And when it does, we will know exactly where it is and how to get to it. Fixing it will be another beast all together, but that’s future us problems. For now, we’re soaking up all the knowledge we can and enjoying this part of the journey.
WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales.
We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011. Why? Because curiosity is the key to unlocking life. It pushes us outside our comfort zone, softens our assumptions, and helps us embrace the great unknown. The more we let our curiosity lead the way, the more we discover about ourselves and the world around us.
Our home is also our transportation and we spend weeks away from civilization and sometimes land. Self-reliance and living a sustainable lifestyle are a must. It’s all about managing our resources and we’re always looking for new and better ways to do so.
We’ve lived off the grid for over 10 years now in everything from a Van to RV to a Sailboat. And over time we have learned a lot about renewable energy, creating safe drinking water, and managing our waste.
Our journey is ever-evolving but the mission remains the same: #CultivateCuriosity
