Why Won’t Our Windlass Work? Too Many Boat Bugs!| Travel Life with Proteus Rising | Ep. 30

In this episode (30), We continue the boat jobs trying to get her to where she needs to be for our shakedown cruise and sailing lessons coming up very quickly. Greg figures out the windlass and the issue with our bow nav light. Additionally, we make a visit to West Marine and the inaugural Anacortes Boat Show.

Who we are: We are Casz & Greg, empty nesters, Gen Xers, Adventure-Seeking Explorers, along with our two pups, Kola & Sprite. We bought a sailboat, sold our house, and bought an RV.  Now as constant travelers, we split our time between Sailboat and RV. This YouTube series documents all of it, from the dream to reality. Come with us as we venture from land to sea and all around the world. #digitalnomads

We left the chains of the corporate-sponsored suburban lifestyle, said goodbye to our mortgage, the golden handcuffs jobs, and are living a life that lets us see the world on our own terms. #alternativeliving
