Things were going so smoothly... And then with one simple mistake it ends with a spark and a puff of smoke! I don’t know how many times we’ve said “Boat projects! They’re never straight forward!” We’re about half way though our massive boat-work list and some challenges are thrown our way. First off, our brand new washing machine is a touch too wide to fit through the companionway door, so we have to completely dismantle and rebuild it inside Delos. Then in a comedy of errors Brian drills though a very important electrical wire trying to mount the new washer :( Oh yeah, and the dive compressor is giving us a fit but we'll save that for later. We still manage to make progress and have never been closer to shoving off and sailing south! Woop Woop!
Hope you enjoyed this one! Much love from us! Brian, Kazza and Sierra

The scenery is so beautiful and stunning.Very enjoyable! Reminds me of my trips where I take the good music like the Guns N Roses, Imagine Draongs or the Delta Parole and then enjoy the powerful feeling of the sea. ¡vamos!

that's incredible. people need to see this before they assume that it is cheaper or easier than "normal" life. every choice entails trade-offs! still, it is incredible to see you all tackle the challenges together, and the sense of accomplishment must be great.

Hi Brian & Kazza, Nice to how you guys work so organized. Using the Scrum board is great to see. Works really motivated and gives a good view about the progress. It inspires me to you it too at work. But having a boat means loads of work to keep it sailing. And this returns every couple of years again. I can still remember having you the total rig replace in Malaysia, 2016? Keep on telling your great adventure, enjoy and happy safe sailing !!

Brian, once again, I'm amazed at the level of engineering expertise you possess...and Kazza, you are Super Mom and first mate, keeping life on Delos moving forward, while Brian recovers. I am in awe of you both! In addition, you have a phenomenal group of friends. Nugget's smiles lighten the mood, no matter how trying the day might be. Best wishes to all three of you!

Hey Brian, I must ask, how safe is an "asbestos insulating blanket"? Even in government nuclear labs, asbestos is no longer used in any kind of insulation/shielding as inhalation of asbestos fibers is the direct cause of Mesothelioma. Considering the extreme temperatures, that blanket could release very harmful fibers. I love this channel and I'm sincerely concerned.

Just thinking.... For some reason there is always something that needs fixing on a sailboat whether it is new or 20 years old there is just always something that needs attention.

Hitting a wire is better than hittin' seawater, in my book! You guys make Volvo proud, taking such good care of the engine. Well done all around, and a nicely earned Florida warmup at the end. :)

Hey Brian, so sorry to bug you with this question totally off subject. Full of hopes to go back into traveling/sailing, myself and 3 more friends got a 56 f monohull in Greece from mid July to end of Aug and I'm in total denial regarding avoiding sailing to Crete in July and August due to strong wind. Would you or anyone reading this have any advice/info about personal experience in this matter. Thanks in advance and you all stay well and safe. PS Sierra is getting cuter and cuter :)

On our SM 007 (Eleuthera), we sacrificed the wet locker to accommodate our full size washer/dryer. We chose a Siemens IQ500 meant for the Turkish market. Given the control boards were made for the Turkish power grid which varies from 190-250 Volts, this machine has been completely reliable. Keep up the great vids. Cheers from NZ.

I don't understand people who financially support these sailing channels via Patreon. Lets bust your butt working hard at your job on land only to help pay for someone else's extended vacation fantasy??? How stupid can their Patreons be? Let these sailing people pay for there own vacation like the rest of us instead of begging for money from their viewers.

Hello Brian and Kaza and Nugget! I was wondering if you or any of the other cruisers have looked into Starlink for internet after your testing is complete with the system you are currently reviewing? There are a few videos on SEmost on the one that uses a dish and you have to point it but they are working on a globe type deal for busses/trains cruise ships and so on. I don't get to talk to a lot of boaters and cruisers in general but I am very curious to see if this a possible solution for having internet vs. Iridium go and having the paid Sim cards. I know the "home" version is very compatible in price to having the other regular internet providers and one of the cheapest satellite internet services that I've personally researched. Also if you had this Starlink and not had the Iridium go would you get the Iridium just for the redundancy and peace of mind knowing you have 2 ways of getting messages out? Sorry for the long message like I said I don't get out to ask any cruisers and would love your feedback as well as your tribe. Please if you have any input good or bad it still helps me and others form an opinion Thanks and hope see you in the Caribbean!

Aw man talk about rotten luck on drilling into a wire loom. Great repair though and keep moving forward. Dismantling a brand new washer to make it fit must have been nerve racking but your "calm" approach to task completion is admirable. Well at least what we saw on camera ..... 😆 🤣

Boy...I am afraid of doing that on my boat...Next time use "Weld Mount" Tough as can be.. and you can not break the weld from the adhesive or the many attachments that they will tear the substrate away before the adhesive fails. If you want to ever remove the attachments you can saw them off or grind them off...Best "SV Aquila"

Why don’t you get rid of that impeller and replace it with a solenoid? I’m not sure if you’re familiar with sailing vessels Cat Impi, but he got rid of that pesky impeller years ago and has a video of how he managed it. You should give his vid’ a look see and see if that’s something you might consider Brian.

Brian, When you use heat shrink in a wet inviroment, it is a good idea to use a polyurethane sealant under heat shrunk, then heat it to squeeze sealants out....
