Ep 41 - You Stink

Ep 41 - You Stink

2020-03-3058:40

When both of the showers on the boat start to leak, there's bound to be a problem. A stinky problem. The Culleys talk through making those repairs, stocking up on more food, and figuring out how to manage their time while maintaining social distance.
Ep 40 - Stay Home

Ep 40 - Stay Home

2020-03-2351:22

As the novel coronavirus outbreak gets worse, the Culleys are staying at home on the boat a lot more. Well, except that they need to pick up a propane tank. And a wash-down pump. And a banjo? They also talk a little bit about how people are coping with the stress. Special Feature: YouTube video alert! https://youtu.be/FRS3lKQbbEE Laundry has never been so exciting.
In Washington state, schools, businesses, gyms, etc., are all closed due to the containment measures for the coronavirus. So how do the Culleys deal with this on a boat? Is there enough Spam? Or toilet paper? Also, is Kendra going to have homeschool flashbacks?
Kendra is back and fully recovered from the flu, just in time to confront the deadly coronavirus pandemic! Did Josh buy enough toilet paper? And why is there so much Spam in the boathouse? Lastly, if it looks like a duck, but doesn't quack like one, what is it, exactly?
If you've been following us on Instagram (instagram.com/theDropAnchor) or Twitter (twitter.com/theDropAnchor), then you know that Kendra has been down with the flu for the past few days. She should recover just fine, but with the Coronavirus running around close to home, there are a lot of precautions being taken. Kendra does not do well with respiratory illnesses! In the meanwhile, the Culleys STRONGLY recommend you take biohazard precautions - wash your hands, don't touch your faces, stay at least 6 feet away from people who are coughing or sneezing, and if you're sick, wear a mask to prevent spreading it to others!
Ep 36 - High Winds

Ep 36 - High Winds

2020-02-2545:04

Turns out that coming home from vacation is nearly as much of an exciting adventure as the vacation itself! Between high wind, a rough current, low tide, and cute little bow/stern thrusters, it turned into another fun story. Also... high water alarm, again?!
Ep 35 - Island Getaway

Ep 35 - Island Getaway

2020-02-1844:50

On the first available sunny day of February, Josh and Kendra have taken the boat out and headed off to a private island. It would sound more romantic if they didn't have to bring their teenagers with them! Also, are those... cat paw prints all over the boat?
Ep 34 - Busy Busy

Ep 34 - Busy Busy

2020-02-1145:25

The Culleys aren't people who live on a boat with teenagers. They are parents of teenagers, who happen to live on a boat! It's amazing how much of life is wrapped up in dealing with the kiddos, and this past week was no exception.
Ep 33 - Working Out

Ep 33 - Working Out

2020-02-0452:16

The latest addition to this boat life: a gym membership. It's hard to work out on a boat, so heading to shore and hitting the gym is the only way to get good exercise!
Ep 32 - Laundry Day

Ep 32 - Laundry Day

2020-01-2853:02

Josh and Kendra talk through the single pain-point in this boat life: Laundry. With five people on this boat, there's a lot of dirty clothes to handle!
How's it going? How are you doing? How's life? Or... how's BOAT life? Kendra and Josh try to navigate the minefield of small talk now that everybody knows they live on a boat. Also, snow day! Why on earth do they call a snow day when there's only 3 inches of snow on the ground?
Ep 30 - King Tides

Ep 30 - King Tides

2020-01-1357:14

A daring rescue at night! Josh and Kendra talk through their last-minute, late-night rescue attempt of a sailboat caught in the shallows. But first, a few boat stories from childhood.
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!
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

2019-12-1650:22

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.
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

2019-11-1855:22

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!
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!
