[Sponsored post] Took me a few days. I’d say 16 hours to install and 4 hours to source parts. Now she’s done, she purrs, and she’s filling our tanks on SOLAR 6.1gph @ 12.6vdc.
Sponsored by SPECTRA Watermakers | Our new watermaker means fresh water freedom. Sailing Zingaro is ready for Pacific crossing.
I’ve been sweating my ASS off in our engine room for 5 days. Totally worth it. This watermaker is sweeeeeeeet.
Fresh water independence! We’re finally ready to set sail for Easter Island.
I’m going to edit the install video and upload it for our sponsor’s (SPECTRA Watermakers) approval. Then as soon as it’s public we leave Puerto López (Ecuador).
Much love guys, stay tuned, Zingaro’s watermaker video is coming soon.
Here’s a little peek into how we are provisioning for Easter Island. We are filling 10L/20L containers with rice, beans, quinoa, flour, lentils and popcorn. Then we put them into our buddy’s freezer for 3 days to kill any bugs/eggs (big problem here is weevils). Then we store them down in the hulls, and… pizza for months!
It’s pretty cheap this way. All of these containers were filled with various things for about $100. Yay team Z!
As we are getting ready for our longest trip we have been very busy. We will update you all on everything we’ve been doing, but first, check this vid out.
Much love! Thank you all! We cannot wait to take you to EASTER ISLAND with us!!!

Kimmy strikes again with a bad ass video. We finally reveal the new sails to the rest of the world. Did You think this day would ever come?
🙂 We take our loved and abused old sails down and receive our new Sails. Don’t miss the festivities. Grab a glass of Champagne and join the party! 🙂
