What are the top 10 tools every cruising sailboat needs? In this real-time sailing update we answer your questions and try to restrict our top tools to 10. As you’ll find out, it wasn’t that easy. And we’re just talking toolbox here, not all the specialised equipment needed to repair and maintain the sails, rigging, deck, hull etc.

Topic Time-stamps:
01:50 Six month plan?
06:22 “Gardeners Question Time”
10:47 Top 10 Essential Tools

We also answer your questions about the future. Yes, that’s right we really do have a crystal ball! But seriously, the short, medium and long-term scenarios for all cruisers is a big topic of discussion among the community. Border closures, quarantine and restricted movement in most nations’ territorial waters make it very difficult for any of us to go anywhere. At the moment, we’re OK, but what will happen in six months time?

As always, thanks for watching our videos, every view helps get us noticed and our work shown to a wider audience. If you haven’t already SUBSCRIBED please click the icon and tap the notification bell so you’ll always see our new videos in your feed.

Peace, fair winds and please stay safe.
