A good isolated fridge
Refrigerator on a sailing boat, the largest electricity spreader. Eighty percent of the electricity consumed on board is to maintain the cold in its gut. The principle of operation is simple. The so-called evaporator, or the cooling plate, takes the heat from inside the refrigerator and transports it to the outside, dissipating it into the sea using a heat exchanger.
List of medicines and medical materials.
List of medicines that should be on board. Depending on your country, some medicines will not be available and you will have to look for analogues. This article lists the list of medicines that can be found in Italy, because authors from there.
When talking about the safety of navigation, the first thing that comes to mind is an inflatable life raft, one that constantly gets underfoot, who never know where to shove, but when it is needed, it must be large, durable, efficient and in perfect condition.
Boats and their crews
So far, we have tried to analyze different aspects of life on board and sailing in the oceans. They talked about the boat, how to choose it, prepare it, how it lives at sea, what to expect on the other side of the ocean. However, everything written is filtered through our personal opinion, which is just one of thousands possible. Traveling, every day more and more you realize that all problems, ideas and solutions are very subjective. It happened to us, and more than once, to find that the problems that sometimes tortured and angered us for weeks did not give us peace of mind, our neighbors did not even take into account.
Write, shoot, take pictures
A hundred years ago, a strange idea occurred to a certain Joshua Slokamu: to sail around the world for no reason other than the simple pleasure of doing it.
Books, maps, flights
Four days later, Moluccas finally appeared on the horizon. The decision to go here was made at the last moment, no flight, a map of only a small scale and, in addition, the echo sounder stopped working. We chose an island for good luck, amid a gathering of dark spots that are on our map represent the archipelago.
Swimming in the tropics
The Earth is large, has the shape of a ball and rotates around its axis. One of the consequences of these well-known facts is the presence of three climatic regions. Polar, where it is always cold, moderate, where it is hot or cold depending on the season, and the tropics, where it is always hot.
Waves and Storms
Really bad weather in tropical seas does not happen so often. Violent, dangerous and destructive storms, a rarity. However, those who are going to go out to sea and spend several years there should be prepared for the fact that sooner or later they will face them. As for our experience, for eighteen years of navigation, really strong storms into which we fell can be counted on the fingers of one hand.
