2020-01-0700:35:19

Josh and Kendra talked about the risk of having bugs on the boat several months back, anticipating the usual boat critters: ants, roaches, weavils... but what they encountered was much, much worse!

2019-12-3000:57:16

After taking a week off from podcasting, Josh and Kendra recap their Christmas road trip down to California. Everyone is along for the ride, except for the cat... who managed to get sooty paw-prints all over the boat! As always, it's an adventure!
Ep 27 - Wisdom

Ep 27 - Wisdom

2019-12-1600:50:22

Wisdom... as in teeth. Josh and Kendra talk through some teeth stories, as their oldest daughter just had her wisdom teeth removed. What are they even for, anyway? Also, there's probably some wisdom in doing routine checks on the boat!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Josh and Kendra talk through Christmas lights on boats. Before that, they explain the steps involved in getting prepped for a trip. Lastly, Josh gives "dropping anchor" a whole new meaning.
Ep 25 - Our First Storm

Ep 25 - Our First Storm

2019-12-0200:52:30

The Culleys experienced their first storm. Well... "storm." Ok - it was only 15 kts, but it sure bounced them around a bit, and did some damage to some of their neighbors' boathouses. They also talk through Thanksgiving and their upcoming Christmas plans.
Ep 24 - Thankful

Ep 24 - Thankful

2019-11-2501:00:36

With Thanksgiving coming up in a few days, Josh and Kendra decided to dedicate some time on this episode to mention a few things that make them thankful. Some of it is the usual stuff... and some of it is uniquely boat-related. They also talk through some more back-story on how they viewed water life growing up, and manage to bring up Water World and Three Fugatives into the discussion.
Ep 23 - Sweet Sixteen

Ep 23 - Sweet Sixteen

2019-11-1800:55:22

Happy Birthday, Hayden! The oldest Culley daughter turned 16 this weekend, so Josh & Kendra talk about our lives when they were sixteen. Kendra was "home schooled," or something like that. She sure learned a lot about I Love Lucy and Laverne and Shirley. Josh, on the other hand, spent half of his 16th year in Korea, nerding out to Dungeons and Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. Life on a boat has become more normal for the Culleys, but as they discovered right before recording... sometimes the poop-tanks fill up faster than expected. That's just life!
Ep 22 - A Three Hour Tour

Ep 22 - A Three Hour Tour

2019-11-1100:59:01

No, this one didn't end in a shipwreck! But they did come dangerously close to some rocks at the Tacoma Yacht Club, and the bow-thruster stopped working for some weird reason... Josh and Kendra talk through some additional tweaks and upgrades, as well their first adventure as a family on our new boat. They've decided: this is a good life!
Winter is coming! Josh and Kendra talk through their winter experiences, and go into detail about Josh's dinghy repair this last week. Also, when exactly does a boat feel like a home?
Ep 20 - Three Weeks In

Ep 20 - Three Weeks In

2019-10-2800:50:00

Holy moly! Twenty episodes into this podcast, and three weeks into this liveaboard life, Josh and Kendra are still adjusting to life on a boat. They've now gone through a homecoming dance, grocery-store adventures, miles and miles of walking the dog, and… golf? It’s work… but it’s a good life. They wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Ep 19 - Being a Surrogate

Ep 19 - Being a Surrogate

2019-10-2100:56:05

On this special episode, Kendra talks through her experience being a surrogate mother for a husband and wife who were unable to have children. However, before she was able to tell her story, the high-water alarm went off during the recording! Listen in and find out what happened this week! Also... something about a poop boat.
Ep 18 - Dog Overboard

Ep 18 - Dog Overboard

2019-10-1300:49:00

Well, that didn't take long. A black lab on a boat is bound to result in a dog overboard. Time to re-think some safety measures to ensure the dog can get back onto the boat! We also tackled some water issues. You know, things like making sure there's enough water for showers, and that the boat doesn't sink when the plumbing fails. Also, how does electricity on a boat work, exactly? Kendra has been posting a lot of great photos of our adventures on Instagram - make sure to check those out as well: www.instagram.com/theDropAnchor
Ep 17 - Moving In

Ep 17 - Moving In

2019-10-0700:52:35

They've done it! They are now podcasting from the boat! Of course, getting to this point wasn't without opportunities for mishap. Between nearly running aground just five minutes after getting under way, and trying to make it through the Ballard Locks, it was another adventure bringing the boat home. Moving in? That was another thing.
Ep 16 - The Final Countdown

Ep 16 - The Final Countdown

2019-09-3000:13:19

This is a short episode, as Josh and Kendra lead-up to next week's GREAT BIG DEAL! As usual, Kendra is right, and it's probably a good thing Josh doesn't have to mow the lawn anymore. He's not very good at it.
Ep 15 - Regatta Gala

Ep 15 - Regatta Gala

2019-09-2301:00:16

Josh is back from Chicago, and Kendra tells her tale of being a regatta-mom. It's like being a soccer-mom, but cooler. Also, the website now has a forum where audience questions can become a part of future episodes!
EP 14 - Lucky Me

EP 14 - Lucky Me

2019-09-1500:47:55

Some people are SO lucky. Others... not so much! The Culleys talk through some of their luck, and explain a bit about some sailing superstitions.

Ep 13 - Nautica

2019-09-0800:53:40

On this one, Josh& Kendra talk through more details about the the survey and sea trial for the 1991 Bayliner 4588. Also, if boating navigation requires identifying red, green, and white lights on the water, what do you do if you’re colorblind?
EP 12 - The Bayliner

EP 12 - The Bayliner

2019-08-3100:47:13

Bayliner? What happened to the Viking? Kendra and Josh change course on their journey towards living on a boat, heading back to a previous boat that somehow escaped mention on this podcast. Also, Josh isn't the only one who needed stitches this month!
Ep 11 - Sea Trial

Ep 11 - Sea Trial

2019-08-2500:54:41

The Culleys took the 1980 Viking out for a spin up in Anacortes, Washington. Did they like it? Will they decide to keep this boat or move on to try out another one? Also, downsizing is hard. It can be emotional to let some things go. But it's probably for the best.
