Preparing for Winter... Winter Liveaboard Life

December 04, 2022 Sailing YouTubers

After some early season snow and wind storms passed over, we decided it was time to officially pack up the boat for winter.

After some early season snow and wind storms passed over, we decided it was time to officially pack up the boat for winter. The main task was to winterize our 2-stroke engine and prepare the dinghy for storage on the hard (or in our case on the bow). Then, we settle into some of our classic winter routines of homemade pizza and movie nights while we wait for a break in the weather.

For anyone new to the channel, we live on a 30 ft sailboat full time and recently moved to an off-grid moorage the summer months! This means that we get all of our power from the solar system or by running the Diesel engine, and we have to pack in all of our water and food using our little dinghy with an outboard motor. Blue Moon is a 1978 Catalina 30 sailing vessel which we acquired in 2020. One year later we decided it was time for a road trip and built out a 1998 Delica to drive across the country. Now we live aboard the boat full-time, take weekend trips in the van, and explore this beautiful world.

Thanks for watching!
