If only

Every now and then one can read about how people would sail around the world if they won the lottery. As chance would have it, that’s exactly what we’re going to do. This makes for a potentially awkward situation if we were to win big. Feeling preemptive we solved this by making a list.

With every item we buy for the boat there is always pros and cons. Many great ideas are held back by a tiny budget, but never forgotten. As a tribute to those, here is the if-we-won-the-lottery list

– Superwind wind generator
– 20kg stainless steel Rocna anchor
– Watermaker
– New teak deck
– Barrel of single malt Islay whisky
– SSB radio
– Self tailing winches
– Muzzle loaded cannon
– Infrared binoculars
– Full size pipe organ
– AIS transponder
– Personal emergency beacon
– Personal emergency bacon
