Living OFF GRID on a BUDGET Sailboat | S04E24

What unique challenges do we face while attempting to live and sail full time on our 30 foot sailboat? In this episode we answer this question and more as we explain the off grid systems and components of our Allied Seawind 30 sailboat. We dive into sun and heat protection, fresh water storage, rain collection, showering, food storage, cooking, and our galley setup, our wind and solar array as well as our diesel engine, and finally how we stay connected while off grid.
