It’s been a big week here at the HH Catamarans factory filled with completed installations and even a little time out on the water.  Our HH44 CURIOSITY is getting so close to being complete we can taste the salt on our lips.  Mast is stepped, propellers are fitted, copper bottom paint is on and the dinghy is commissioned. Now all we need is some sails and we are ready to get wet.  

Plus, we reveal the completed installation of what has no doubt been the most debated piece of equipment of this entire boat building saga.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think building a new boat would be this much work.  And we’re not even the ones doing the labor. 

Our days and nights are filled to the brim with decisions to be made, parts to be purchased and logistics to be planned (oh how I have NOT missed maritime bureaucracy).  The closer handover day gets, the more complicated the logistics seem to get.  Boat insurance for SE Asia looks expensive and potentially difficult to obtain.  We’re still searching for the port of least resistance to check into the Philippines and sailing out of China, well that is a whole other kettle of fish. 

So many adventures ahead with so many variables to plan for.  We have gained a boat load of knowledge over the past 2 years (much more than expected) and we still have soooo much more to learn.  We are fortunate HH Catamarans has been so open to letting us roam free in the yard, film without abandon and ask 1001 questions. 

Thank you so much for being a part of this untethered journey with us.  It’s been a rollercoaster of a year, and I don’t expect 2024 will be anything less.  So, rest up, have the most wonderful holiday break and we will see you in the new year!


WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales.

We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011. Why? Because curiosity is the key to unlocking life. It pushes us outside our comfort zone, softens our assumptions, and helps us embrace the great unknown. The more we let our curiosity lead the way, the more we discover about ourselves and the world around us.

Our home is also our transportation and we spend weeks away from civilization and sometimes land. Self-reliance and living a sustainable lifestyle are a must. It's all about managing our resources and we’re always looking for new and better ways to do so.

We've lived off the grid for over 10 years now in everything from a Van to RV to a Sailboat. And over time we have learned a lot about renewable energy, creating safe drinking water, and managing our waste.

Our journey is ever-evolving but the mission remains the same: #CultivateCuriosity
