Wooden and small, Wanderer III, despite her many good traits, can never be ideal. With a 26-foot waterline and 10-ton displacement, she's no racehorse. On most passages, she takes twice as long as larger, modern hulls. This translates into more sea time and seabird sightings, but also twice as much Southern Ocean exposure, with its associated likelihood of being hit by bad weather. In any windy situation, the 16-horsepower engine is insufficient, and at sea, our limited diesel capacity of 20 liters overrules progress in calms. On long ocean crossings, like this one from New Zealand to Chile, we don't carry additional jerricans of fuel, filling up instead with extra water. Once under way, it's cold on board. Wanderer III is too small to carry fuel for warmth. Instead, we have to collect wood, peat, or coal at our destination for the stove. The only place we couldn't rely on finding fuel was Antarctica, so we carried Argentine quebracho wood and charcoal in the forepeak. It was just a two-month trip, and being cold was an acceptable price to pay for the visual wonders of the white continent. Provisioning for longer trips to uninhabited regions requires logistical finesse. In the end, it's Wanderer III's size that turns such visits into extreme logistical exercises.
