We interview our friends BJ and Desiree who tell us about their first season on Island Pearl. They sail to the Bahamas but amongst the COVD-19 shutdowns they arrive 12 hours too late and aren't able to check in. On their way back stateside, they run into every problem imaginable including having to make a mayday call, which no cruiser ever wants to…
We are very eager to leave Vero Beach but Tarka has other plans. Our prop shaft falls off the transmission and we are left altering our plans. We also talk about the time Bee got so drunk she wrote a High School Graduation Commencement speech.
We interview Shelby this week! She grew up on a sailboat in the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area. With parents considering raising their kids onboard it's fun to hear it from the kids perspective how being raised on a boat went.
We make landfall in Florida and it is both disheartening and w wonderful surprise! After 7 days at sea it can always be a little weird coming back into society. This COVID-19 shit made that even more insane. We let you know how it all went!
Things tighten up in Belize for cruisers and we decide we better get out before we can't. We make a last minute decision to make a 7 day passage to the States. Belize to Florida. Low on all provisions, we talk about why that was the right decision for us.
We've touched on buddy boats before but we discussed all the benefits! What do you do when someone you're traveling with becomes a liability. Where do you draw the line? We experience just such a dilemma and we let you know how we handle it.
COVID-19 and Sailing. I know you've all been sick of hearing about this shit, but we have to talk to SOMEONE! and you're that person. We let you know what we are thinking and some of the struggles we are going through. We're not even sure what the right decision is, to be honest. We'd love to know what you think, though! Contact us on our website a…
With this whole virus and self quarantining it has us asking, what would be our skill sets in an apocalypse? Spencer sure has some ideas of what Breena would be good for.....
We find ourselves in an unprecedented situation and we try and weigh our options. With the caronavirus causing borders to close their doors and us trying to get to Belize it's not the ideal situation.
A fry asked us to talk about communication aboard and he may have gotten a little more than he bargained for. We are SUPER opinionated about this topic and things get a little ranty!
We're BACK!!!! Sorry about the two week delay, we got really sick after our cruise ship job. We delve into that and then getting back to the boat and how happy we are to be back home!!
It's the little things that make living on a sailboat nice and comfortable. We talk about some of our favorite small cruising hacks that make life easier on a boat. We talk about everything from the versatility of a 5 gallon bucket to period panties. We think you're really gonna love it!
Last week we mentioned that we bought our first and last boat from a Steve, so we talk about tour first season sailing and our first Steve. He also happened to be a shaman and asked us if he could do an analysis of our relationship. The result may surprise you.
We had a Fry write us and ask us what our favorite things were about each of our boats. We thought it would be an interesting podcast topic so we delve into our past 7 sailboats that we've owned over the last 10 years. We try and give you guys an idea of what drove us to buy each one and what we liked about them. We even have some nice things to sa…
We had Tarka hauled out exactly where I said we WEREN'T going to haul her. We made some mistakes and we also had a few things we felt we did right in the whole process and through it all I think we may have some tips that would be useful to anyone looking ot haul their bot out.
We've talked about boredom aboard, but we didn't really discuss how we try to fill our time, so this podcast we discuss hobbies and how we entertain ourselves on the boat. We also talk about modern cruising and what that entertainment looks like today versus 20 years ago.
Cruising in a 3rd world country can bring up a lot of questions in morality, one being how much you pay people. I was a little hesitant to put this one out due to the fact we may sound like pretentious a**holes, but then I just said Ef it! Maybe the Fries will have some insight for me!! So be sure to go over to the podcast's instagram @sailing_podc…
We continue our conversation with SV Soma and SV Tanager. We get a bit drunker as we do so, but I think everyone will enjoy the resulting conversations on boats, cruising grounds and trying to convince Tanager to get a motor!
We found other Millennial sailors!!! Anna and Ryan aboard their Vancouver 27 named Soma and Phillip and Marjourie aboard their Bristol 29.9 named Tanager. We go over all things cruising and find out how all of us handle different scenarios, our favorite cruising spots and how we all afford to do this. We had so much fun, in fact, that it stretched …
Deadlines are important when refitting your boat, but you always break them, so why set them at all?? We're 3 weeks in to our 2 week refit and we give you guys an update and let you know how things are going. Spencer and I also debate how things are different on a larger, more comfortable boat....spoiler alert, we disagree, as per usual.…
We do it, Fries! We delve into the dark side of travel; poop. We talk about why sailing and cruising are made for travel for the sole reason that it gives you a private bathroom, no matter where you are! If that doesn't turn you on to the sport, I don't know what will!
It's a long one folks!! We had a lot to say about buying our dream boat in Guatemala. We give you the run down of getting here and try to sprinkle in some tips for buying a boat abroad. Hope you enjoy!
Hey! We're alive!! We let you in on what we've been up to and why we believe we are bad travelers. Thanks for sticking with us!
This week we did a collaboration!!! You'll find half the podcast with us and the other half on The Bonnie Boat Podcast! Go check it out and be sure to subscribe so he knows it was SUPER lucrative to have us on his podcast. ;)
This week we interview Hinterland Sailing a family of 6 that sailed the Sea of Cortez on their 35 foot Ericson sailboat. Find out what it's like to sail with 4 small children and what their advice is to would be family cruisers.
We always tend to tell you the stories that we find most entertaining, which often doesn't give you any indication that we actually like this life we lead, but today we tell you why we work so hard to keep cruising and why we love sailing!!
We stored the boat for hurricane season and now we are trying our hand at being dirt dwellers. It isn't really going as planned and as we try and scramble to enter the next phase of our sailing careers, we get ourselves into some foibles that we think you'll get a chuckle out of.
There's always a season in which you can't sail an area, so what do you do? Sail it anyway? Store the boat? We delve into how we handle the "off season" and the risks that are out there for you and your boat.
We start our job! Yes, J-O-B! Don't worry, it's only 22 days, and then we'll be back to ole Flapjack. We talk about our work on the cruise ship and the inner workings of the industry. It's all pretty crazy.
Dinghies, Tenders, Little Boats, there are lots of different names for the transportation we use to get from our boats to land or out to the reef for some diving. We talk about the dinghy successes and failures we've had over the years and what our ideal tender is.
*Warning of Adult Content....more than usual! This week we go over a topic I (Breena) have been dying to talk about; romance and sex aboard. We get a little more intimate in this one. We delve into how we got together and how that has shaped our romance aboard.
We had a Fry write us and ask what our security is onboard, so we decided to do a podcast about it! (Thanks @belfordken!) We talk about safety and security onboard and what our mentality is towards protecting ourselves and our things on the boat.
When you're cruising you often encounter the off season; the time of year when it isn't safe to venture out so you find your self stuck somewhere for an extended amount of time. For us this meant Florida, but the proved to be more difficult than we had thought and we quickly changed our plans!
Junk! It's a Noun and a movie. A movie which Breena watched at a film festival and claims didn't inspire her despite the fact her and Spencer are doing an entire podcast about it. They also delve into new ways to not be a turtle killer.
Ever dream about taking off and buying a sailboat? Well, Steve did and he is 5 weeks in! We interview the young Peter Pan who is moored next to us and find out what his first impressions of cruising life is and how he's adjusting to his very new lifestyle change.
This week we talk about how we go about selling our sailboats and we give you some of our best tips so you can sell your boat, by yourself without a broker.
Re-entry after you come back from a cruise can be difficult and we tell you about some of the challenges we face, and still face when we return from a trip. We talk about following your dream, whatever that may be.
Motors, Engines and Outboards! It's all a part of cruising and one that isn't discussed much because, well, "It's a Sailboat, SAIL it," right?? Well, we give you our thoughts on motoring while cruising and the trend to go electric...Also, Spencer delves into paper straws. It's a trip. Hope you enjoy!!…
You all know about Morgan Freeman, he sails with us, meows a us, jumps on Spencer's d**k to inform him he needs food. He's just all around a fun critter to have onboard, but (and this is a bit "but") we don't think he likes sailing. So, what do you do when your family pet hates being onboard?
In one corner we have the ever dirty, ever shedding, ever salty sailor and in the other we have the spick and span, Clorox wielding Cleanliness! Who will win?....OK we all know who wins. We're dirty, here's our take on staying clean, or at least attempting to stay clean on a small boat.
Everyone says they quit their jobs and sold everything, it's basically the sailing mantra, but here's the real story about our transition and all that it has led to. Cutting the safety net and creating your own plan is scary and difficult and we haven't figured it out yet, but we are happier now than we've ever been!…
We're bored and it's a fact of cruising that is not discussed too often, probably because....it's boring BUT we try our best to delve into confinement, hobbies, changing plans and all the goes along with being stuck.
We interview some boaters that didn't care for sailing and bought a motor trawler instead! They went to the dark side...but the dark side looks pretty damn sweet. Join us as we talk with Sarah and Andy on MV/ Radiowaves about life in the fast lane. Also, follow them on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/mvradiowaves/…
We deleted Friday's podcast because it wasn't a product we were proud of. We discuss how jealousy may have gotten the better of us and we talk about the realities of sailing on a small, fixed income when surrounded by larger, fixed incomes.
Sorry we're putting this out late! But we think it is worth the wait. We talk about the most recent job we got. Yes....job! We also talk about the reality of working while cruising. Hope you enjoy!
Spencer finally uses his degree and shows us all how to make learning sailing terms a little easier!
This week we talk about crossings, passages and day hops. We also talk about the laid back environment we try to embody while out here bobbin' around.
This week we sit down with a couple of bad ass sailors who have crossed the Atlantic and refit their 30 foot steel sloop to set off again. Oh yeah, they also happen to be two of our heroes!!
What do you need to go sailing? Electronics? Grape juice and salmon bellies? We delve into what's important to spend your money on and what you can do without. Hope you enjoy.
