SURVIVING on Coconuts and Crab?! OFF-GRID Boat Life
Could you survive on coconuts and crab? If you were stuck in a remote atoll in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, that may be your only option. Most of the fish in the lagoon have Ciguatera so eating them is like a game of Russian roulette. It’s rumored lobsters climb over the outer reef into the lagoon around the full moon, but we only saw one dead lobster. But there are plenty of coconuts and land crabs. After traversing Raroia’s bommie filled lagoon we anchored near a boat that was in fact stuck after a series of very unfortunate events, and the couple did survive on coconuts and crab, which made us ponder whether we could embrace the opportunity to live humbly and learn lessons that can only be taught by nature.
Thanks so much for watching!

If you're new here, Harbors Unknown is the story of two dreamers, Kristin & Fabio Potenti, & our dog Yoda. We're a small family living aboard our catamaran, SV Wanderlust, sailing to Harbors Unknown. Exploring the world, connecting with people and places through the local cuisine, and showing how great food can be cooked on a boat with limited space and resources. Seeking to balance the desire to explore and travel to beautiful, remote locations while leaving no footprint, minimizing the Hawthorne effect of the observers who change the environment she or he observes.

We hope to inspire people and showcase the possibility of living an alternative lifestyle that provides freedom and fulfillment, all while keeping it real. Sharing the trials and tribulations of living off-grid, acknowledging the discomfort of detoxing from the modern world, finding pleasure in the subtleties of nature and joy in simplicity. Attempting to understand what makes the world tick and tock but also trying to gain a deeper comprehension of ourselves and identify what will satisfy that hunger for further exploration, for purpose. We have set off on our voyage sailing around the world! Subscribe now to join our sailing adventure.
