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!


The Daily Grind is Real

We fight against our weaker selves and our beliefs. And we take the next step in one of our most important projects. But we also experience some moments on the sunny side of life.

The Elephant in the Room

Back to work! Holidays are over! We return to dusty Puerto Peñasco, where our construction site awaits. Time to conquer one of our biggest projects yet.

Cast Off – We’re Going Sailing

We take a break from boat work and go on a sailing trip. Our departure was a bit hectic, because the painting of the freeboard was not going as planned.

We Wanna Go Sailing

When fellow sailors leave the boatyard we want to go sailing, too! But we know: Our time on the water is coming soon! Just a few more (thousand) projects to complete…

Always Forward, Never Back!

The last few weeks have been frustrating and tough. But we have fought our way through the slump. We’re making progress and that’s how we like it!

Decision Fatigue – our Heads are Spinning

We suffer from acute decision fatigue – our heads are spinning. Because the decisions won’t make themselves, simple strategies are needed.

The Silence of the Desert

Even though it neither looks nor feels like it, we’re actually making progress with Milagros’ refit. Besides work, we enjoy a weekend in the desert.

Where there is Light, there is Shadow

The work seems endless and a recommendation of a professional makes us doubt our approach. Time to take a day off and celebrate my birthday.

Haunted by Bad Luck

Our fiberglass material was finally delivered – the rebuilding of the hull could begin! Finally, we thought, the destruction would stop. Unfortunately, that was not the case. We would learn a lot, but we were haunted by bad luck.
