Hola Dear Friends,
This time we’d like to take up the often occurring questions related to the big decision of boat selection for us and also help you with your potential decision.
We talk about the importance of answering few very important questions before making this huge decision:
1. The fundamental purpose that the boat is going to serve you or why are you buying it in the first place?
2. How much or often are you going to use it?
3. Is it going to be live aboard or close to it, which would be long term cruising?
4. Family or not and how big, and what ages?
5. Where are you going to cruise?
Depending on those answers we give you some idea of why we chose Poly and not another boat. Why did we choose project boat (one that needs substantial amount of work) over ready for sail one? How does the homework we did pre and post purchase benefit us now and why is it important for everyone thinking about this step from land to the sea.
Enjoy and as usual don’t hold back with questions, because we realize that this episode is only scratching the surface of the issue and we will be recording something a lot more in depth and technical in the near future as usual based also on you questions.

What is Patreon and how you can support us:
Adventures of Ania and Bartek with two little kids sailing across oceans on a 15 meter trimaran as a way of promoting alternative way of life off the grid. In 2014 we managed to materialize our dreams and traded a land based home in Poland for a permanent life on the ocean aboard our dearest new home – sailboat “Poly”.
For us sailing is a way of free life in sync and harmony with nature and each other. It’s a way of experiencing life, people, and places, entirely on our own terms. For many years it was just a dream, but we followed it and it came true. We are here and now, no longer chasing the dream.
We’d like to share it with you so that you can follow your dreams, too. Follow us to see all the amazing, interesting, crazy, scary, and funny people, places and situations that we experience and learn from.
Welcome to our family life unplugged.
Ania, Bartek, Kuba and Julian
