According to the First Mate, Kelly Girl, Moorea
has all the luxuries a boat needs. That would be the wine rack since a glass of Cabernet is a must while watching the sun set.
If you ask the Captain, Kelly he would tell you Moorea has all the basics needed to sail the world. He’ll also tell you that conserving on Moorea is a must. With a 30 gallon fuel tank and 90 gallon water storage, sailing in light winds is mandatory and fresh water can not be wasted.
Would you prefer more fuel storage and a water-maker? Not really. Instead we added 3-five gallon fuel tanks and water tanks for long voyages rather buying expensive equipment that would need maintenance.
Each vessel has a compromise and it’s crew needs to know how to work within the boat’s limitations.
