#282 Join us as we enjoy the fruits Sao Miguel has to offer. It's actually a quick stopover as we prepare for our journey to Madeira. It's only a 3-4 day sail but we want it to go smoothly. We've been sailing for over 5 years now and would you believe it, we may be still yet to perfect it.

Thanks for watching!! Yes, running out of gas was a rookie mistake. Sailing for over 5 years and still plenty to learn. Guess it was better it happened on the 3-4 day crossing than the Atlantic crossing - haha! Would you like to support our video production? Check out how you can support our show here: for more information. xo

We've all had our versions of running out of gas. I've been 'going bush' for 40 years & recently drove 1200km into Woop Woop & realized I'd forgotten my bloody tent.

Need Gas? Make A Solar Stove or use the BBQ (always have several backups for all important things :-) Could take toilet paper, a can and alcohol to make an alcohol stove. The solutions are everywhere but in your brains. Be prepared and fill your brains (knowledge is almost free these days via Google).

we had some sticky steering cable sheeve once: overworked the ram, the ram overworked the quandrant, the quadrant fatigued, and SHEARED!!!. 2000 meters off the dock, on start of passage, the quadrant required welding. fortunately, we knew a welder with a deep water dock, 3km off the dock-pulled up via dingy tow, welded, and started our crossing 4 hours late. such good fortune. other options would have been supa-dangy.

I had the same problem with a pair of mountain bike shoes as your steering. They were a cable through a sheath with a dial on the back for lacing, The old rebock style cable system back in the day. Although these mtn bike shoes are Italian not British. You might be to0 young to remember. However I ended up pulling them apart and melting the sheath off of them with a flame then a bit of wd40 did the trick. Not recommending you do this but I feel your pain. Once in you could barely get out of them. Good luck with the system not the best design.

Ooouuuuh Riley going with the fancy ultra light z-packs bag! Very nice. You'll have to give your thoughts on it. Also Riley, have you ever looked into these guys who make bags out of used sails? Looks like you can even donate your old sails and get a free bag (I have no personal experience with this, just thought you would appreciate):

Maybe adding a little back packing stove with its own fuel for boiling water. Cheep and light, its good enough for boiling eggs or preparing coffee, tea, ramen, or freeze dried camper food. If you make sure to be hungry, tired, cold and wet, they will taste pretty good.

Put some sugar with the raw eggs (normally just the yolk) and you will have a nice threat, I also like to add a bit of lemon juice. Much better than just swallow them. André as a Portuguese should know about it.

The little dude is growing so fast! My daughter is 6 - we jokingly called the lightning quick mood changes "bipolar baby". LOL Also, it was interesting to see the flowers you drank nectar from. In south Louisiana we have a vine we call honeysuckle that looks a lot like that flower, just smaller and you can also drink the nectar. Happy New Year!

I don't comment in internet things generally but I wanted to rop a line to express how much respect I have for your lifestyle choices and approach to life in general. My wife and I left our advertsing jobs in NYC about 7 years ago now and moved to Puerto Rico with the idea of living a more sustainable, thoughtful and fulfilling life. There are a ton of hard choices we had to make and rarely will anyone ever really identify with your life choices or understand the sacrifices required. As I was getting out the water this morning with some nice little tiger fish for our civeche I remembered a video you guys published a few years ago and the things you said still resonate (pole spear fishing being the most selective and sustainable). Much support for you and yours. You are bravely living a belief system that human beings desperately need to emulate. If you are ever near PR put in at Boca De Congrejos and hit me up. THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE!!

Regarding your steering you need to change the inner cables as you had to cut the frayed white antifriction covering off the ends some time ago. They are now fraying inside the outer sheaf causing your problems. Eventually they will bind up altogether and you will have no steering. Urgent you get this done ASAP. Same system is used on control surfaces on light aircraft. Great videos keep up the great work

First of all why would you make Andre carry Lenny’s dirty diaper?? He had 2 capable parents but yet they make him carry it! Absolutely disrespectful!!! And as always nothing about sailings ocean. Sailed 24 hours and Riley has to take a nap all day! This channel is a joke and disrespectful to all the real people that sail the ocean! I apologize but the people need to stop donating and funding this channel until they actually start sailing again! We’re paying for them to have a free 12 month vacation, all expense paid Azorez vacation. It’s time to sail more than 24 hours or change the whole narrative of the channel! So not fair to Andre!

Hey guys, I felt the pain when the 'gas' ran out, but am wondering if you couldn't have a solar oven as a back up. I see plenty of sun on board, being ignored; sun on deck, what the heck, use it or lose that a possibility? Used them all the time in South Africa......and I know there are companies making fancy ones, but you can also fashion one in no time, c/o Boy Scout wisdom.
