The Way Back | Fiji to Panama | A voyage on FPB 78 that changed the prospects of cruising forever

#survival #south pacific #boat #expedition #Science & Technology
Join Linda and Steve Dashew aboard the FPB 78 - 1 Cochise on a 7500 mile/12,070 kilometer record setting voyage, averaging 10 knots from Fiji to Panama against the winds and current, that has changed the prospects of cruising forever. Their 5450 mile/8770 kilometer leg, without a fuel stop, is the longest ever undertaken by a small motor yacht. You will be aboard as they thread their way through some of the most beautiful and navigationally dangerous waters on this planet. The Dashews will show you how they deal with severe thunder squalls, use modern navigation electronics, and catch fish on a state of the art meat line. You will hear stories of their past visits through the South Pacific, make a brief stop at exquisite Fatu Hiva, and learn how they do all of this in extreme comfort.

Have you considered putting solar on top of the Matrix Deck? With the addition of a Electric motor, it could potentially extend your range considerably.

I don't know why Youtube recommended your channel today, but you showed me a new way of approaching sailing around the world. The Matrix deck is what I've been looking for the whole time.

Beautifully done video. The boat is a dream. And to think of the incredible hardships the first European sailors had to endure crossing the Pacific.
