Look it's not the most pleasant of welcomes, but we're happy to prove we're not harbouring the virus. Because the Azores, guys! Finally!
These are truly some unique islands, volcanic mountains rising out of the depths of the Atlantic. It's a magical place we've been keen on for some time, that volcanic soil giving the islands such a thick green wilderness.
And with no GPS and places with names like the Lake of Fire, the interior of São Miguel is really the adventure we need after some prolonged boating.

  • Actually, I'm old and am considering looking into a cat hull like the Outremer 55 (by someone else, they don't like the idea). All the luxury finishes seem to me like more maintenance for a one or two person crew. I'd need one sleeping quarter and one bench with table aside from in and out helms with everything geared towards function only. I've even considered building my own cat hull, but that is a lot of one-off molding. Molding for interior lockers and gel-coating the finished interior is something I can do fairly easily, and building cabinet carcasses is snap in my shop.

  • yeah Riley.. I don't think people who are investing in a boat.. .. have the idea that they want the interior to be anything less than comfortable. I don't think your typical millennial backpacker type would want that. You don't invest in a nice hull, nav, sails, rigging, to live like you are in a hostel somewhere. Could be interesting options though for folks who don't want to invest quite so much on the interior.

  • As far as I know, the issue is that the structure of the furniture helps with the boat structural rigidity, so if you want to remove furniture you have to find a way to reinforce the structure of the boat, wich ads weight, so I don't know how helpful could it be. Balance catamarans solve the wight issue making all the furniture foam core and laminated finishes. Maybe you could use the furniture structural base and apply your idea, but I suggest to make some numbers in terms of weight savings and go from there. Cheers guys!

  • Nice idea about Hull and sailing gear only. Trouble is they are called sail aways. Everything you need to sail, but none of the finishes. Small manufacturers have been doing it forever. If your looking at environmentally boats. Wooden, either strip plank, or could molded or ply. Trees are replaceable. Basalt sounds a bit odd. Might have problems insuring and selling it on. All powder addative and no longitudinal or structural strength. Look forward to seeing what you do. Love the show. Bob

  • I've often thought about the camping style light boat. My idea is for a very robust mode for sailing and then like a pop up camper would expand while at anchor. So two modes... Indestructible and packed up tight for sailing through the toughest of seas, and an expanded decadent mode that is well ventilated and spacious. I have a design worked out based on a monohull with a polynesian style outrigger. Basic living quarters would be in the monohull portion and the tent would expand all of the way out to the outrigger when at anchor. That way it should be cheap, robust, very livable and maybe even fast! Oh... Flexible solar would be stored on a roller in the outrigger. It would deploy over the tent to provide shade and power. I've been dreaming this one up for a long while.

  • @sailingwithsix built bunks for the kids, a little desk, the kids sewed pockets for all their stuff out of old jeans and cloths. One of the cabins became a garage for all the surfboards and kites. Great idea the glamping and swags. The kids have fairy lights in their bedrooms. Very homely.

  • Riley, have you seen the DIY Globe 5.80? Pretty tempting for a starter ocean going boat, maybe your idea could tie in with a budget cruising version. Racing one has a fixed keel but they are talking about a trailer sailor version at some point. I live in Melbourne and thinking about building one for coastal trips and occasional visits to Tassie. This looks perfect for me with my vanlife building skills. Forum is pretty good, maybe float your idea there. Don McIntyre runs it and he replies pretty quick to all inquires. www.classglobe580.com/

You show us the good and bad of the things you experience, and it is priceless info for those of us who can only travel vicariously through you. Thanks particularly for the test for COVID, as no verbal description could do justice to what it actually looks like. Never dreamed it could be anywhere nearly as bad as it looks. That must have been extremely uncomfortable! Lovely to see the Azores, it reminds me of the Hawaiian Islands, where I fortunately was able to live for 24 years on the Island of Maui. Tropical islands are magical !

Went all out on a oven and freezer but skipped on some other things till I get the the income. I built my own 12v AC, air handler and air filter system. I think a blank sailboat would be awesome business venture. I've lived full time for 5 years on sailboat. legends... cheers.
