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!


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.

Milagros, the Daughter of Sisyphus?

Milagros is a puzzle with a million pieces. And we need a lot of patience to put it all back together. Step by step.

Catrinas at the day of the dead

When the Dead dance

We have walked among the dead and have released baby turtles to the Sea of Cortez. And then there was another highlight. A very big one that is.

An End In Sight

We see light at the end of the tunnel. Splashing is imminent, if everything works out the way we want it to. Milagros is almost ready for the next big adventure.
