Simple Self Sufficient Sailboats - Ep 66 Sailing Luckyfish
Would be for gem sperm, and, an Anika, boo-hoo, to. Build a tiki, 72. A. Big. I. Heard, something, about that a. 72. You. Arrived at the Black Point community, we, just saw a guy crashes jetski into the JD that's the most exciting, thing that's happened. Pretty. Impressive entrance. Yeah. There was some big rise and, some medium-sized. Guy just, feeding on a fellow's got cleaning, fish they, hang around there may be tempted, to get in the water with them but as Marcel, said maybe not. At the feeding station. We. Had anchored off the small community, of Black, Point. Exactly. Half way along the Exuma, island chain. This. Was Marcel, and family's, last, full, day with us. We. Still had 50 miles to cover to get them to their flight in Georgetown. Tomorrow. After. Wandering around the, peaceful, small, community, and collecting. Some provisions. Including. Some tamarind, seeds, and coconuts. We. Returned, to the boat for the last leap to Georgetown. Just. Sign for the first time. I. Have, been feeling like, I already know, you. The. Other way around, we. Have been following your story, you're. Very comfortable, around, you. Domestic. Arguments, that we cut out. When. We start throwing sauce pans in each other. Think. Hard, what. Do you think is missing in the video from what you've experienced. In the last, you. Know. And shame my dress, because. It. They open, you. Shave your legs I change. We. Can ask you the same question, and theater did. You watch any vaporizer, wasn't any Marcela watches a video i, think, only master, and I watched one, you. Watch the boat to work yeah. Inside. And outside for. The. Two video there. Are any different man from what she was in The Bachelor yes, really. You're. Not. White. Yeah. The. Way how you are your. Personalities. Is. Exactly. Like. How I felt. When. I watched your videos I I don't feel. Any. Difference, and the. Boats. The. Orders. Don't. Like the rough stuff. What. Are your most. Favorite. Things. On. The vault or. Stops. That we made. Sorry. Cooks well. Today's. Army that. There wasn't the one glass falling over because the boat is rocking it, was just the wind because, the wine glass is empty. The. Week had been our first good test of all the renewable, energy systems, five. Crew, on board meant, more power for charging, equipment and running the water maker with. The energy coming from three, different sources, the. Benefits, of a diversified, system. Were already, obvious, it. Would be possible to do it all with solar but, we would need many more panels, and at least four, times the storage, and even. Then the system, would not be so versatile. We're. Just steaming out through galio cut i am. On the atlantic ocean side. Pass. Between cave key and big. Galley okey. They. Just made what. Beautiful. Fish and egg sandwiches, father look at that, just. Before we hit the waves. Soon. We'll be out of there by Georgetown. And, get, the sails up I think. I have a quick run we got good wind. Sandwiches. It. Had been a fantastic, week for everyone on board. Marcel. Had come to see if his family, would enjoy sailing. And to. See a finished version of the boat he'd just started, building in Belgium. Followers. Of his YouTube channel will know that shortly. After this video, Marcel. And family emigrated to Thailand, where, he began building a smaller Wharram, to, practice woodworking, skills before, resuming, his Tiki, as. Many. Wooden boat builders, would understand. Marcel, finds great, peace and pleasure when, in the workshop, building, wooden boats. We. Hope to sail with you all again one day soon. You. Honey this is Joey hi everybody Joyce. Joined, us he's come from California welcome. To lucky fish man and, still you didn't have to bring us a piece of work really. Well. Here's that here's. Something that made are. You guys oh there's. A place called booboo. Hill were. You in school where. You can either you can either keep it or throw it on a hill. So. We're gonna go and find this place yeah might be its word. Drink maybe water, wells yeah. Yeah. Don't. Be a first for all of us because we haven't visited did. Joe. Joined, us for a whole two weeks so. We'll take her much more leisurely pace this, time and explore, more, of the exhume, Asst.
Joe. Normally, sales a 27-foot. Monohulls. Solo, and has, been gaining experience. Sailing, with groups doing. Charters. And was, keen, to see firsthand, how, we did, things on lucky fish. We. Make the short crossing to Monument Bay on the chip that evening and, past this, very, interesting crisp, white Atlantic. 47. With her patented. Mast, foiled. Catch Rick I'm, always attracted to catamarans. With, two masts. They. Just make so much sense. Most. Are talking to a beach ball you know. Wilson. Wilson. The ball yeah. You're. Breaking into a conversation here. Luckily. There's no mirrors on the. Amazing. Joe. As. Luck, would have it we, anchored, next to John Michels Tiki, 36, Taguchi. One of only two or three in the world I'd, last met John Michell on, the hard stand in Grenada, we, went over to say hi while Joe, walked up to see the monument. In. Zuma. And. It's a very interesting boat, I believe it was a prototype to the Tiki 38, that we sail so. I was just checking out the cabin now which a lot of Tiki 38, people talk about would, it be possible to build. Out across, the center deck area in between the mass and the Tiki 36 does it with other quite well, Joey, in the porthole, this. Is the centum, seem, to pod what we call this mid ship's cabin. Very. Nice. Good. Sitting. Room. Hatch. Here. Many. People interested in Tiki, 36, idea, maybe. Adapting, it to the TV for. Big. Guy like me though it's a bit of a stretch. And. Then what's your head but, this, is a cozy we kevin, in. Here. It's. Nice yeah, I like in there you got the acrylic. Window there the back looks like another sliding, one that closes, the door way to make it all wet it's not. Picture. Out the window, it's. A balance. Five. To six I believe very. Nice about, 1/2 million dollars worth and. A. Considerable, amount less lucky, fish, sitting. Over there anchor as we were reminded of last night but they were pretty cool about it, we. Just offered to leave if they wanted to leave so, but they were good and. The beach is just there their monument, Barry. Sing. Baby no he went parenterally. Was his idea to go walk out. So. That was nice and then we're gonna put them up in a couple of hours let's, go and join John Michell. In. Jersey. Ours. Belong. To, a. Banker. Here's, some Jersey, yes very. Stressed. Yes. And then I vote from, him. Actually. And. Then I. Took. The boat to rest and. Prepare. For. The crossing, and. Then the next year. During. Summer, and fall. We went down to. Spain. Portugal and, then, Madeira. And then, Canary, Island, knowledgeable. In Tenerife, yes, from, Canada Yellin we went to, Cabo. Verde and. There, we stayed three days and Cabo, Verde we. We, went across to. Blood look 18, gangs. Not. Bad at all I seem, to Guadalupe, yeah well I think our Ralph Gunter was just done a similar thing with his party. 42. I think his crossing was about the same it's.
3,700. Miles, total. Matheny. Yeah. It's. Lovely yeah that's the way I shouldn't cross things should be yes. He's. Going to stay, here for two months in. The hole there and then. Go. Back to, go. Back to Jersey. Where. He was, born or who she was originally belong. So, the bite is, one. Of only two Tiki, 36, is built and are both built by a professional, builder yes and. From. The from. The Warren. Jim sweren design, metal, yard yeah, somewhere, in my stuff yes, and there's, carved. In the work there's a number the. Specific, number of the. Yeah. I say. I say so, so James Warren. Designed. The boat had, two, of them built by Andy Smith both works in the Philippines, or did when they built in England at that time I. Interesting. Could. Have been yeah, who knows but so. Andy Smith is a professional, builder and he built both of them and then worm decided. That it. Was a little bit too much for the amateur boat builders, to, to. Take on a project like, this the. Build construction. Required a professional, it's a complicated, construction so. So. He decided. Not to go ahead with producing, amateur, plans for, it it's a very simple model. Yeah. That's. Interesting. And then so were I mean what when why I had a head scratch and came up with the Tiki 30, instead, and then looked at the construction authority I reckoned. That the chicky. Katya clacks, I thought yes, it does it would. Have a tremendous success. With a pub mmm, sorry there is a number of. Sellers. You designed. And constructed, pods, for. Their Chiquita, Diego, interesting amelioration. Yeah, because. Otherwise. There. Was a French guy who built. One in New Jersey knew, jacques. Pierre a, Buddhist. Pilgrims, Pierce's bar here he. Wanted to to. Sell. How of the votes to me yeah. I. Decided, against, because, he. He. Wouldn't, want, to have, any. Challenge. In the construction, of his baby oh. And. You wanted to put in a father in like this i i i knew the boat yeah. Seven, years before, and. I had actually. Tried to buy the boat from. From. Scott. Brown yes. Sorry. Lima yes, and when, I phoned Scott. He said I, sold. The boat yesterday. There. Was a Tiki 38, was it not I. Do. It six years to Viper wow that's like a school. Girlfriend, listen together white oh she gets divorced and, then leaving parents. So. It's. A you've. Sailed, across the Atlantic weather, and cruising through the Caribbean you know the, full circuit of the Caribbean pretty much dipping down to Grenadier, and yes. I'm the dragon, clark's, Coronado. Is, where. We first met, and. Then. Came up here. From. Grenada. With another, friend. Yes, and we've, been here pretty much, since. The. Beginning, of jr. January, we. Went sailing in, restocking Island with views of French. Boats yes, and, we've. Enjoyed every day of the. Holidays. In Bahamas. Yeah. And. Your immediate plans to, spend a little bit more time here and then sell the boat back across the Atlantic. Yes. Because. To, Jersey, I. Have. Other plans in my life now okay and I have had, so, tremendous. Pleasure. With the boat it's time for someone else to have such a pleasure and, it's going to be a friend and he has already had to wear ups yes, so it's like. But. Right yeah I didn't think this part would hang around long, if you would ever sell it because I know there's a lot of interest and what is a very rare Wharram, yes yeah, and. It's but people. Who. Like modern, car cats don't like this to this type. Of design, because. It lacks the comfort. But. Then with all that comfort, comes complication. You know what would be. Nothing. Else it would be for gem sperm and and Anika, boo who. Could. Build a Tiki, 72. A. Big. I. Heard. Something, about that. 72. Feet. That, would be a, shooter, like yeah sure, but we've with one diesel engine. Because. Those Alborz I don't know about yours but they. They. Cannot run for hours and, days. Hmm. We. Try and minimize the use of hours but you know we do do long runs with them and touchwood they've been good but. We keep the maintenance up to them as well you know we've learned if you don't you know you get cutting yes.
But Thankfully we have to so, that's another good thing that's why I like to engines, if we're ever down one you know we ever know they know. That I like relying, on one at all I like having to all the time you know it redundancy. Is. This boat gaff rigged do you have the the, Wharram wing sail I have the ticket yes your property kiri right or the gaps and everything well it's really interesting because you managed to to. Fit all that and and the, and. I must get some film of how you, cheat. Your foursome. Yeah, on the dig because, this is one thing that I thought would be a hurdle if, you didn't fill in there seemed to complicate, the area on the td30 hike where would you put the sheets in, order to control the force oh yeah I imagine you've got it all just sitting on the terrace a number of. Blocks. Is, take. The rope from, you is. Out. Of the way. We. Had to say au revoir, to Java Xiaolin to gawky but happily, we meet them again later, and farewell. Them, on their, Atlantic. Crossing.
