The Ultimate Bug Out Boat: Living on a Self-Sufficient Sailboat for 10 Years

While I doubt I could willfully live for months or years on a boat like these folks did, I think the idea of a self-sustainable watercraft is an amazing idea for preparedness, and this boat clearly takes the idea of bugging out to a whole other level! Just think how awesome it would be to bug out to the ocean and avoid nearly everyone, especially when the SHTF?

In any case, their setup is really neat. They have communications (including satellite broadband internet), 1000-liter water storage and desalination equipment, hot water, freezers for food, solar and wind power (enough to power everything onboard), a nice kitchen and laundry setup, and more storage space then I would have guessed. Of course, if you’re not a very tidy or organized person then this probably isn’t going to work out for you.

A major drawback is all of the ongoing maintenance the boat seems to require. It’s not just an expense but a real problem if this were to be your main bug out option. Regardless, watch this and get ready to be jealous…

All three articles were quite interesting, especially the sailboat. I think that is the way to go. Providing you are completely prepared, of course. It sounds like they did everything correctly. I’d like to do it but I’d need an unsinkable ship. Not like the Titanic.

My neighbor and I each have land bound live aboard boats. My small fiberglass sailboat sleeps four [ugh!] His powerboat sleeps more. Each has electrical systems tied in to the grid, but they aslso have inverters and can use microwaves for cooking. The sinks are stainless, each will accommodate a water supply and sewage. Two hundred yards away is Lake Superior, thousands of fish.
