#BoatLife #Refit
Life on the hard. That's what we yachties call it when our boat is out of the water on dry land. Why? I can only assume because living on a sailboat out of the water is hard.
I am thrilled to report the cleaning is done and Curiosity is ready for liveaboards once again! Join us as we make the transition back to full-time boat life, take you on a tour of the yard, and explain how we live on a boat when it's hauled out of the water and sitting on the hard.
WHO ARE WE?
We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid and exploring the world for 10 years.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is overly talented, smart, rich, lucky, or retired. But that doesn’t stop us from reaching far-flung destinations, having wild #adventures and managing everything that makes living aboard a moving vessel possible.
We’re two ordinary people that just so happen to live an extraordinary life.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.

    Hey everyone! Hopefully we didn’t miss anything about life “on the hard”. If there’s anything else you need to know, please ask in the comments below. Composting Toilet, Water Purification, WiFi, whatever…we’re happy to share. Living at the boat yard isn’t as good as being on the water, but it’s not half bad, and it gives us motivation to splash CURIOSITY as quick as we can. As always, Nikki’s shared some additional tips and links on our blog: www.gonewiththewynns.com/living-boat-yard 💘 Jason & Nikki

    It's been a while since you posted the video, but as I was watching it I was curious if anybody else was living in their boat while you were? Is there an onsite caretaker? Having packed up my home and living in temporary accommodations for the past nearly 3 years, I get the excitement at being in your old quarters with your own stuff. I was able to get my silverware and dishes out of storage for my current living situation, and I was so excited to use my own silverware!

    A lot of people catch and use rainwater in Australia as well. The community where we live is not on a mains supply and we currently have two 5,000 gallon poly tanks which we use to store catchment that is employed exclusively for drinking (boiled first), cooking and washing clothes. We have an old well that is 30 feet deep out the back and it supplies flush water for the toilet as well as water for the garden, washing vehicles etc.

    I'm glad you still love the composting toilet! When I bought my little 30' Cal sailboat, the previous owner had removed the marine head, leaving just a miserable porta-potty. I'm sure I was a bit influenced by your purchase, so we installed a composting toilet, an Airhead instead of a Nature's Head because it had a hull-shaped option that worked for us. It has been fantastic! My SO is about to begin renovating a 1969 Airstream, and he will be installing a composting toilet because we've had such a good experience with it. So, thank you again for sharing unusual ideas.

    Wanted to mention a couple episodes back a possible fix for your fuel tanks. They have aluminum "brazing rods" that require only a small torch. I'm no welder, but the idea is you seal the tank holes by filling in with the rods. There are lots of USplan vids on this. A real welder could advise.

    @Gone with the Wynns thank you for your answer.

  • Gone with the Wynns

    Gone with the Wynns

    5 months ago

    Oooh - good question! I got so curious I had to stop my work clock & go investigate. In the most common forms of color blindness, shades of either blue and green or shades of red appear as a range of tans & browns. Since navigation lights on ships are green and red, one of them would look "correct" and the other would be brown, so they're still different colors and Jason would know by now which is which, so that adjustment would be pretty easy. Same with green & red aids to navigation (markers & buoys). The big problem I see is, if he is blue/green color blind, then all shades of water would be some shade of brown to him. This is a problem in warmer climates where the deepest waters are shades of blue, mid-depths are shades of green, and really shallow water appears brown. If you're blue/green colorblind and it *all* looks brown, that would make it really difficult to navigate inshore. I'm guessing that's why Nikki does most of the piloting inshore. As for night vision, some forms of color blindness actual do help you see better at night because your eyes have more rods than cones. Who knew!! Thanks for the question! Curious Minion

  • Stephanie Ellis
    Stephanie Ellis5 months ago

    The electricity thing is stupid. Boat builders should know that people will be sailing between different systems/voltages. There should be at least the option to have those converters built into the boats electrical system so that this type of issue doesn't arise. I've seen a lot of videos where people will at the very least make a comment about voltage and charging batteries and sometimes even the plugs (the builders should be able to make that a fairly simple switch for the owners, too). I'm glad you were able to figure out a way to at least get a trickle charge. Congratulations on being back home.

    It's so interesting hearing you talk positively about the Natures Head, we ABSOLUTELY HATED ours after using it for a year full time on our tiny house. Ended up getting a refund on it and putting in a really simple, non-separating bucket system that is so much easier to empty and maintain for us. We had major issues with the solids getting too wet and not composting at all, the urine tank not being able to clean effectively, fly infestations through the fan...the list goes on. I think this toilet is probably a good option if you're using it sporadically as the solids have a chance to break down but I definitely don't recommend it for us land lubbers as a full time toilet solution. So much happier with our bucket system for that!

    Funny story... I was deployed to Kenya back in 2005 and my medic introduced me to this wonderful liqueur, Amarula. I loved it and bought a bunch to bring back to the states thinking I'd only be able to get it in Africa. While visiting my fiancee in New Jersey after my return I was dismayed to walk into a liquor store and see Amarula on the shelf, for LESS than I paid for it in Kenya!

    Congrats! Am definitely thinking of a composting toilet, esp since we've already managed to overflow our holding tank this summer with no marinas having facilities open, and no overboard discharge allowed in the great lakes! Regarding the lithium batteries, I'd be more worried about getting them to 100% all the time rather than discharging them below 50%. Lithium batteries are happiest between 20-80% soc.

  • DrinkinSlim

    It depends on the make. If they're Battle Born batteries (for example), they are good all the way to 100% as they have headroom built in, if that makes sense. Their BMSes also level out the cells when held at 100% for a period of time - not that you'd need to do that regularly. But yeah, it doesn't hurt to have them under 100%, unless you need as much power as you can get. :)

    Love our home-built composting toity (Natures Head etc wouldn't fit the boat, as most are very tall). Also, we've lived on rainwater in our home for 18 years. It is splendid for drinking and cooking, and quite easy to make safe. Bit of unscented Clorox (1/4 cup per 60 gal) when we first wheel the barrel indoors; it kills everything living, then mostly offgasses. Then we pump water thru a 10, 5, and 0.5 micron filter (that last being a carbon block). Filters last 6 months or more.

    good video lovely nikki you look great. some of the things you showed me made me remember. when i was a little kid i would go visit my grandparents both sides. one side did have running water in the kitchen. neither had as we say feciltys. they had out houses. takes some getting use to. of course when you are a kid it don't matter also sometimes in the army when you have to go you would take your intrenching tool. dig a hole do your thing fill in the hole and be on your way. keep your smile nikki.........be water my friend

    Is that a Hortsman trimaran you're parked next to?

    Just a thought/question about your cleaning/de-molding process. Since the bugs/mold/dirt, etc. seemed to permeate everything, have you considered cleaning or perhaps even replacing your air cond. vents? It would be a shame to do all that work only to then blow that stuff around and re-contaminate the entire boat again. Not a trivial job I know but you've been so thorough and careful so far -

    Just a big thanks for the entertainment....I grew up sailing a 30' Pierson with my family on east coast....Maine, Cape Cod, Nantucket.....anyway...now I live in New Mexico and the only thing I miss is sailing and the ocean....I get to live it vicariously with both of you and during these times of craziness with covid and election it has helped me to relax, get my mind off the hard stuff and watch you with open mind and the ability to think fast on your feet and solve problems sometimes without the things you need to fix them! People have no idea the work it takes to keep boats safe and functional and how easy it is lose things overboard! I also get seasick but I do not care....the reward of the trip is worth the heaving....I still remember crewing a 50' sloop many years ago in at least 40ft waves and throwing up for hours til it ended and then the rest of the nght we sailed into a full moon in calm waters...there are never words to describe the beauty and oneness with nature in those moments. There are rewards from the hard work that not that many people ever get to experience....good luck to you both.

    Hello! Thank you for your wonderful videos! I was wondering about your new "bikes." I've been interested in a folding Blix bike since you highlighted it last year, but it doesn't look like you still have them. Can I ask why? Did you end up having trouble with them? Thanks and good luck with getting your wonderful home seaworthy again!

    @Gone with the Wynns Oh, thank you! I'm sorry, I thought was up to date on all of the videos! Thank you for the link and info. I'll definitely shop through the link to help out the sailing kitty - every bit helps! I'll have to go back and make sure I see (and like) all of your episodes. Thank you for sharing all of your knowledge and experience. Fair winds!

    Nikki talked about this a few videos ago. Basically, they loved the Blix bikes but they won't fit into any of the storage compartments aboard Curiosity. Read about it and see links to both bikes here: www.gonewiththewynns.com/boat-back-to-life Don't forget that shopping through the link in the post won't cost you anything extra but will throw a few pennies into the sailing kitty. And sometimes there are discount codes too. Happy shopping! Curious Minion
