Cruising Life

Getting into the cruising vibe?

Mood setters and information

Over the years we’ve found so many things that make our lives easier out here. From cameras to drones to must have tools, survival gear, galley essentials, and even things for a toddler onboard. Check it out at our SV Delos Amazon Storefront! If you do we’ll get a little love into our beer fund as well 🙂

It doesn’t matter if you’re at sea or on land, there’s always room for a little more happiness and adventure. Whether you’re looking to become a better sailor, or just needing a little escape here and there, these lists are a great starting place. Many of the links are to Amazon, so hopefully that makes them a little easier to find. If you DO purchase from the links, we get a little kick into the beer fund. 🙂 Happy reading.
