This is it... our final weeks living at the docks before taking our boat (and tiny home) off grid. But first, we patiently wait for a good weather window. In addition to preparing our Catalina 30 sailboat for living off grid, we also faced challenging weather, from pouring rain, to wind storms, to an unseasonably low pressure system that hit the night before we planned to leave. This week was a little chaotic, but we managed to get MOST of the things checked off our list before our departure! We're so excited to share some sailing content on here starting next Sunday!If you enjoyed this video and want to support us directly, you can receive access to our episodes Ad-Free, our chat community, behind the scene updates and more at https://www.patreon.com/bluemoonlife These videos are made possible by the generosity of viewers like you and we want to thank you so much for being here!If you are new to the channel, Blue Moon is a 1978 Catalina 30 sailing vessel which we acquired in 2020.
