I almost turned into a sanding machine myself over the last weeks. Fortunately the sanding came to an end, the underwater ship is painted in 9 layers of primer and copper antifouling, the deck is nice and white again, the cabin top is varnished wood and most of the yellowness turned into nice mahogany color again.
In fact, I went out for a sail. Just for the fun of it. For the very first time in my life I just went sailing… with nothing else in mind than going for a sail.
My plan was to have the boat ready to sail and in the Mediterranean by June 2019. Now we have mid April and I am ready to go.
It is such a relieve and I am exited to leave the port to start the journey. Some minor repairs and fixes are still to be done but as it is with an old wooden boat, there is always work 😉
As this is just an update on the status ÍI‘ll be back with more soon.
I have been on the road again and among others I visited the Düsseldorf boatshow called boot.
I had no specific idea about the boatshow before I went there, which left me completely open minded.Nevertheless I was surprised on how much plastic crap is available there. Not much about repair or DIY. Not really much about sailing either. Only very few smaller sailing boats at all and a lot of huge plastic hull with not so nice interior.
All of this left me thinking about stuff you need. Minimalism and simplicity is not only about getting rid of things you don‘t need. It is also about deciding what you you let into your life in the first place.
Whatever happens to you is often out of your control. Your reaction to that in contrary is your own choice. I decided to turn the amount of freedom that I momentarily have into the chance to live a childhood dream.
Since I don’t want to do that alone I am inviting you to join me on the adventure around the world.
