Our catamaran suffered catastrophic damage in a storm on route to Hawaii. In this live stream we will talk about the lessons we learned.

Upload of our livestream | Tearing apart our boat… In this video James takes you on a tour of the damage sustained on Dec 22nd 2019 when our boat was shipwrecked, and his thoughts on what caused it. You want more? Become part of the crew via Patreon or support Season II on kickstarter.de
Finally we found the courage to go back to the marina in Kona and have a sober look at Zingaro. Without the adrenaline the boat looks horrible.
The boat is in a disastrous shape. All the cross stringers in the starboard hull are broken, bridgedeck is ripped to centerline, most bulkheads are broken. Basically the starboard hull ripped off.

We decided to give away one of our spearguns to a local fisherman in Kiritimati. They don’t have many guns on the whole island, and the gun passed down from his father desintegrated. We love this gun, but it’s going to a great home. Maybe it will be handed down to his son orContinue reading “Our Speargun is Going to a Fisherman’s Home”
The Line Islands consists of the scattered islands and atolls lying near the Equator and the meridian of 160°00’W. We have visited three of the islands in the group so far.
