Surviving on a Sailboat in a bugout scenario presents several advantages and disadvantages. Advantages include not being stuck in a bunker with now windows, fishing, and mobility, to name a few. But you are constrained by the weight of the times you can store, inclement weather, and bobbing zombies.

There are also considerations about what kind of boat. And many other considerations.

Years, back we explored sailboats as an option for both living and bugging out. But we never fully addressed life on a sailboat in a grid down and hostile environment.

Zombies, as we’ve said in the past, provide an interesting and highly complicated scenario¬†forcing deep thought and extensive¬†nuanced consideration. So it’s ripe for thought experiments most other situations don’t present.

As it turns out, Zack has spent lots of time considering just such a situation. He even wrote a book about it.
