If you have any questions, ideas or advice for another video, please let us know in the comment section below and we will make another video! We had a lot of fun making this!

1:24 Macbook 12v Charger
The perfect charger to charge any of your larger electronics though USB-C through 12v without having to turn on your inverter saving lots of power on your boat house batteries. We bought this to charge our 15″ MacBook Pro Touch Bar and works flawlessly! = 87w version

2:11 The Best Water Shoes
We have gone through a couple different shoes and these are by far the best we have come across due to their versatility. They are so comfy to wear kicking about the boat and best for swimming to shore, running on the beach, hiking with Jackson and look just like a normal shoe we can even wear into town! Not on Amazon, but they gave us a 15% off code to pass forward to you guys!!! 🙂 = Aleader Shoes

3:40 LED Globes
The first thing we did back in Malta was replace all the interior globes to LEDs saving 3w per globe. I have just now recently swapped over our navigation lights and anchor light to 4w globe from 10w. We also have a dimmer LED strip light for the cockpit for sundowners out in the cockpit creating that perfect ambient lighting. For back up, we have a solar powered LED light. = G4 Interior LED Bulbs = BAY15D Navigation LED Bulbs = Cockpit LED strip lighting (Non-Dimmable) = Cockpit LED strip lighting (USB – Dimmable)

5:57 Mr Funnel
Twin filtered funnel, say no more! = 12 Gallons / minute = 5 Gallons / minute

7:37 GoPros
We have the old GoPro 3+ for the more basic dangerous stuff where we may break or lose it, but for everyday filming we use the GoPro Hero 7 Black. As explained this is probably the best camera we have. GoPro have just introduced the Hero 8!!! = GoPro Hero 7 Black = GoPro Hero 8 Black

9:26 The Perfect Bags
From duffle bag suitcases with wheels and a handle to camera bag, waterproof bags and Pet bag, we have it all covered with the best backpacks for living on a sailboat. We walk a lot carrying various items for miles, so bags are something we know a thing or two about! = Small bag on wheels = Large bag on wheels = GoPro Seeker Backpack = GoPro Cheaper Alternative Backpack (DeKasi Backpack) = Backpack rain cover = Waterproof Dry Bag = Pet Backpack

13:32 Toaster
This toaster will cook the perfect piece of toast in 30 seconds! This little invention is Unbelievable. = Camping Toaster

14:18 Powerbanks
Everyone will have one, but you should have a dozen. We charge all our powerbanks up during the day while our battery bank is at full charge from the sun, then at night recharge all our camera gear, phones and iPad again ready for the following day! = 10,000mAh powerbank

15:23 iPad with RAM Mounts
We have paper charts, 2 navigation units onboard but we use our iPad as our primary source of navigation with Navionics. We have it permanently mounted at the helm with RAM mounts. I did lots of research before moving onto the boat and this RAM mount is probably the most important item we have bought. = Ipad Case 9.7” (5th & 6th Gen – 2017/2018)
