Currently we’re in Bahía de Caráquez (Ecuador), taking Zingaro apart! All of a sudden we’ve got quite a bit of space here. We removed the fridge and gave it to the local dockhand. He didn’t have one.
Now we’re going to design a chart table / editing table that fits in right where the fridge was. We have to find a very space-economic design for a desk with an integrated chair. We only have about a meter of space. Any ideas?

No fridge anymore … ?
Seriously, a propane fridge is a horrible idea for a cruising boat. It’s hot (in an already hot place), it’s heavy (extra parts for the propane system), and the #1 reason: it uses an entire 20lb propane tank in 2-3 weeks. Usually on cruising boats a tank of propane lasts 3 months. Plus when you ran out of propane there was no warning, everything just went bad, water all over the floor …
Unfortunately there are no 12v fridges in Ecuador, and a 100% import tax – it would cost around ~$2000 to get one here. Not having refrigeration sucks, but we’ll deal with it. We are happy it’s off the boat!
We didn’t even look at a picture before we arrived in Cartagena (Colombia). So we thought we were in the WRONG place! It was a HUGE city, awesome people, great nightlife, and a Russian submarine turned bar. This is a cool one. Enjoy folks!

Always the first thought, albeit not the first voiced, in anyone’s mind when I tell them I’m planning to go sailing to Tahiti on a catamaran is, “Where the hell did this idiot get the money??” Well, make no mistake, I am an idiot. My brothers got the brains, all I have is balls. Got your attention yet? Good. I can say balls, it’s my blog.
SO… Money. It’s always about money. Before I go on a two paragraph diatribe against the menacing greenback I have to say, I worked my butt off for that money. I will say this though, you can manifest anything you want in your life, you just need know how. I recommend starting with the Law of Attraction by Esther Hicks. Continue reading →
