In this video we're breaking down the systems and technologies we've built up over the course of 14 years of full time sailing and living aboard our boat off grid. We will be covering 4 essential pieces of the puzzle that allow us not only to survive out here, but to live our lives comfortably! We will discuss electricity, how we make it, and what our set up is. We will talk about food: how we plan and figure out what we need, and how we store it. We will share how we're able to turn saltwater into drinkable freshwater, and lastly, how we're able to get the connectivity we need to stay safe, run our business, and entertain ourselves!
