Rick Moore on Living Off-Grid for Months at Sea: Hydroponics, Solar, Wind, and Gardening on a Sailboat

In his podcast, Ethan talks with Rick Moore about the challenges of living on a 50-ft sailboat. The sailboat, the Sophisticated Lady, is fully set up to live off-grid for months at a time, with solar and wind power, a water desalination unit, and even a garden on board.

Rick takes us through his systems and shows how living on the water can apply to tiny house living.
