SELF-RELIANCE AS A SAILOR (remote island living)

Today’s story is about being out on the water, in the islands, and taking advantage of what mother nature provides. From collecting rainwater to foraging with a friend and using stored power from the sun to have a date night on the deck.

We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid and exploring the world for 10 years.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is overly talented, smart, rich, lucky, or retired. But that doesn’t stop us from reaching far-flung destinations, having wild #adventures and managing everything that makes living aboard a moving vessel possible.
We’re two ordinary people that just so happen to live an extraordinary life.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.

    The question is would you have a seven year old boy hold the coconut while you were hitting it with a machete ? Why would the life long use of you hand be any less important? Rule number 1 is always keep your body behind the tool! Throw the machete away it, it has no place on a boat. It's used for clearing fields not handwork. You both are too important to us to get maimed. By the way I'm 20 min from a hospital, how about you?

    Do you have a vacuum cleaner with hose attachment? Do you have large ZipLock bags? Place the camera and a small desiccant bag in housing, but do not close the door, then place in the ZipLock bag. Place the end of the vacuum hose into the bag and turn on the vacuum. After the air in the bag is evacuated, close & secure the camera case. This should resolve your fogging problem.

    I would give you guys a piece of advice : De-husk the coconuts on land prior to taking them to the boat. Put them on the ground or a flat rock with the pointy end up and hit them with a rock as large as you can comfortably lift over your head, let the gravity do the work for you.. it will after 3-4 hard blows split the husk 1-2 places and you can then remove the husk with your bare hands without any machete action.. When splitting the nut itself look at the blunt end with the "eye and mouth".. above the eyes you make an imaginary line along the nut, and you hit it confidently with a sturdy knife/parang (if you forage on islands frequently I recommend you purchase a parang, its well worth it) and it will make a straight split along the middle.. do it over a bowl if you want to save the water inside.

    Camera fogging: you might consider trying to fill the enclosure with CO2 or nitrogen. You can get CO2 cartridges for filling fizzy drink makers whose name I forget. CO2 is heavier than air, do it should be effective to fill the enclosure while it is sitting in the bottom of a bowl. Then close it while still "submerged". You of course can also make your own CO2. Separating the H2O vapor from flame output can be done by freezing.
