  2. Hello Simone, hello Ricky,
    I discovered you only last week and watched all the videos. I am overwhelmed by what you have done.
    By the way, you were on the $ 1 million cat. Forget about it, because your cat can´t be paid with any money in the world. Your cat is a diamond you have honed!
    Greetings from Germany

  9. Guys awesome work to the boat, she is almost there. Please people help this young couple live their dream and follow their adventures on YouTube by donating to their patreon site. I’m not in any way related to them or to YouTube but just love their enthusiasm. I do subscribe via patreon to help them.

  10. Nearly there, so much effort shortly to be rewarded, I noticed next week you are on the TAG 60 Phoenix, it is looking a bit tired (or at least the sails are)

  11. We found we fitted a switch direct to the fridge so when batters were full we diverted solar power to the fridge and off the house battery , and what a difference, fridge worked on it’s own and we could turn off the house if wanted to and still sustained food , just a tip , you biggest drain is fridges , good vids ,,,, water is getting closer ,

  21. Awesome stuff, bet you’re glad to be off the grid and rid of Eshkom😂 Having binge watched all you’re vids we have been following you guys for the past year and look forward to the new weekly vids. When I saw how few sticky notes are left and you mentioned the mast and getting on the water I got goose bumps ,it’s amazing how close you are!!

  22. When you guys are close to launch you should do a total cost of your refit not including labor which is huge! You could estimate your labor just to figure your costs…and add it to the total. You have done such a fabulous amazing job.

  37. Holding Simone’s butt does not meet fall protection standards. It may be enjoyable but don’t let her bounce on the hard.
