Category: Boat Refit

Electrics, plumbing, rigging, sails, paintjobs – the list of projects during a boat refit is endless. Find all the jobs we have attacked on Milagros here!


Margaritas, Upgrades and Back Pains

We’re going through all sorts of ups and downs and madness and the days just fly by. Our new home, the small kingdom of El Mero, treats us with all sorts of memorable adventures.

Jet Start Into The Second Season

We are back with Milagros in Mexico and wake her up from her summer hibernation. From experience we expect the worst with all the work ahead of us. Will our fears come true?

Our Unique Life On A Sailboat – Looking Back

David too looks back on our very first season of life on a sailboat. It was challenging, fun, exhilarating, life changing.

It’s Not Happening! We’re Not Heading Out!

We have had the worst week since we arrived in Mexico. From time to time we really ask ourselves how much one can bear.

It’s happening!! We’re heading out!

The time has come! The 24th of January 2022 marks our departure from Puerto Peñasco. In the days before things of course go a bit haywire again. But mostly in a good way.

A Special Turn Of The Year

We get the full programme over the turn of the year. We are preparing Milagros and ourselves for our first big trip. We’re also going on a road trip and my parents are coming to visit.

Finally in the water!!!

The time had finally come. The moment we had been waiting for was finally here: Milagros got water around her freshly restored booty again.

We’re Diesel Mechanics Now!

After 9 months at the boatyard, we finally wanted to finish. Therefore, nothing, but nothing at all should stop us. But we faced complications with our engine.

What ‘Mañana’ Really Means

We celebrate David’s birthday, experience another sweaty moment as we set our mast and move with big steps towards the launch of Milagros.
