Ep 53 - Stink or Sink

2020-07-2748:49

There's only two major concerns you have when you live on a boat. STINKING or SINKING! On this latest episode, Josh and Kendra run against both! Between an overly detailed explanation of the holding tank (thanks, Josh) and a harrowing tale of nearly losing the boat, this episode has it all.
Josh and Kendra talk through the impact of Covid19 on their lives. Between school, work, and general boating, almost nothing has gone untouched! Fortunately, they're able to laugh their way through it with boat projects, dreams of blue water, and each other!
It's been TWO WEEKS since we last recorded! That's the longest we've gone without an episode, and we have a lot to cover. Family vacation #1: Road trip down to California for Kendra's baby brother's wedding. Family vacation #2: Boat trip up to Poulsbo to celebrate the 4th of July. Great fun, lots of goofs, and a very relaxing time. Don't mind all of the firework sounds booming in the background!

There's been a burglary! The Culleys are safe, fortunately, but the neighbor two boathouses up had a rude awakening. Between the newly installed security cameras, the sewing projects, and some new pet-grooming tools, they are ready for anything now. Also, was that a penguin under the boat?!

The Culleys fled from the heart of downtown Olympia to escape the potential fallout from the protests. Where did they go? To the Island, of course! Stories of crab catching, failed fishing attempts, and... some odd smell in the fridge makes us all wonder: could they really survive out there as pirates?

The Culleys are back at the Island again. With the weather turning nice, this may become a regular weekend getaway! That is, unless Kendra convinces Josh to pilot the boat down to the Bahamas somehow. In the meanwhile, this weekend brought more paddleboarding, some red rock crabs, and some frisbee-throwing on the shore.
Ep 47 - Projects

Ep 47 - Projects

2020-05-1955:11

The Culleys took a break last week to celebrate Mother's Day, but they got one recorded tonight. Between a slight misstep coming into the boathouse, and another shower pump failure, it's been a couple of weeks of boat projects. But also some creative projects: rock painting, boat upgrades, and Josh's weird 3D-scanning project. Maybe he'll scan something interesting and share it!
Ep 46 - Keeping Busy

Ep 46 - Keeping Busy

2020-05-0552:02

What's the best way to pass the time? Keeping busy. Kendra has been painting even more, only instead of the boathouse, she's painting nails, painting rocks, and with her newly acquired body-markers (for temporary tattoos), she and the girls have been painting themselves! In the meanwhile, the gang are getting ready for a Mother's Day weekend by heading out to the island. Hopefully, there's no unexpected leaks along the way.

Even pirates have to swab the deck! It's spring-time, which means that it's time to make everything pretty again. Kendra takes charge this time, and does a major overhaul of the boathouse. With a fresh coat of paint, and a remodel of the entry way, it's looking a bit more like "home" every day. Not to be outdone, Josh gets in on the action and redesigns his work bench (although you can't really tell the difference!)

Ep 44 - Pirates

Ep 44 - Pirates

2020-04-2054:24

The Culleys are becoming pirates! Well, sort of. They're hanging laundry off their back deck, anyway. After spending a few days out of the boathouse, it was a little challenging to want to go back in. So... they spent a couple of nights out on the marina guest dock and enjoyed the sun.
Ep 43 - Easter

Ep 43 - Easter

2020-04-1454:46

Happy Easter! This one sure was... different. Josh and Kendra talk through how they celebrated this year. The kids have been on spring break, so there's been a lot of Netflix and Disney Plus. Probably too much. Also, anybody else losing track of the days? PARENT ALERT: We mention that the Easter Bunny, Santa, and the Tooth Fairy are all made up. Just a heads up!
Ep 42 - Sunshine

Ep 42 - Sunshine

2020-04-0751:56

It is officially SPRING BREAK! Of course, during this crazy time, it really doesn't mean much change for the Culley family. However, it sure was nice to have the sun shining so brightly! On this episode, the Josh and Kendra talk through their limited power supply, failed science experiments, and cold showers. YouTube link to the video we posted this week: https://youtu.be/S4OjR2Id2zE
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.
