24 Lessons After 24 Months of Living on a Sailboat

Lessons Learned Living on a Sailboat as a Family

I can’t believe it’s been two years this month of us trading in our suburb house and buying a sailboat!!! 24 months ago we bought Cadence, moved onto the sailboat, and learned to call her home (err, tiny home). And immediately the lessons and discoveries rolled in!

So in today’s video (and blog post) we share 24 lessons that we’ve learned in the last 24 months of living aboard a sailboat.

To make it easy, we divided the lessons into 4 categories:

  1. The Galley
  2. Social and Personal Lessons
  3. About Sailing and Travel
  4. Marina Life vs. Anchor Life

Lessons in the Galley

Essentiallly, a bigger boat would provide a few better perks: more fridge space, better ventilation, and less elbow bumping. BUT we don’t NEED that. Instead, we’ve learned that a solid freezer is essential to keep and make ice!

And electrical appliances are essential. They save fuel, save propane, and allow us to cook straight from the solar – battery – energy chain. Here are three appliances we can’t live without.

The bread maker not only saves propane, but baking in the oven creates an immense amount of heat. And it takes hours to cool off from it.

The hand blender is everyone’s favorite. From protein smoothies, to tropical drinks, or blending up a good salsa, this little machine is perfect!
