The Boat Work WON'T STOP! Why You Should Do Your Own Boat Work | S01E05 Sailing Pivo

This video is our experience living in a marina and the overwhelming amount of boat work we had to achieve. Sailing is expensive, things are always breaking, and there are always things to fix. We had to replace the heat exchanger and exhaust manifold on our Yanmar 3hm35 marine diesel engine, get professional adjustments on our fuel injection pump, get a new shaft seal and cutlass bearing, service our kiwi prop, and replace all our hoses and hose clamps.

Life in a marina was a bit unexpected for us, as we expected to be back out sailing after only being here for a week or two. But we get stuck in the marina after we find one boat project after another.

We have some fun though as we head to the beach, drink some great beer, and meet some amazing people!

Come join my wife and I as we learn to sail and have new sailor experiences on our new Whiting 40. We are a brand new sailing couple, and have fallen in love with the sport. Many sailing lessons have been learned so far as we learn how to become sailors. Our first mate, Pivo, keeps us out of trouble and is also learning along the way.

We are starting our voyage in New Zealand where we have been living for the last 4 years. But we are going zero to cruising because we're from the mountains of Colorado and have zero experience! Our first sail was with the sailing school, Great Escape, up in Opua, New Zealand (home the 2021 America's Cup). We hope our lessons from a beginner sailor will help you also as we set out on a multi-year sailing adventure around the world.

We hope to become a fulltime sailing / cruising family soon, as we love the sailing lifestyle so much! We love traveling, meeting new people, and seeing the world. We hope you come along for the adventure!
Thank you so much for having a watch! Please like this video and subscribe to our channel!

Fair winds & calm seas,
