That is a pretty cool looking vessel. Was that an old fishing boat? Nice job refurbishing it. I'd like to know the story behind it.

Slayer...from his website:
History:
Wanderbird was built as a classic North Sea fishing trawler by the H. de Hass shipyard in Maassluis, Holland. She was launched as beam trawler for the Jaczon's, a Dutch fishing family, in 1963 and fished until 1990. A beam or side trawl carries fishing nets from the side of the vessel. The Dutch have a reputation for being some of the worlds finest shipbuilders, and the North Sea has a reputation for being one of the most cold, harsh, rough seas in the world. She was built to Dutch standards and operated year round in the extreme conditions of the North Sea for 27 years! We chose Wanderbird for her ability to combine tough, dependable transportation with comfort, safety and 19th century European style. Her massively constructed steel hull and high bulwarks make her an optimal choice for safely carrying passengers in the North Atlantic and Canadian Maritmes.

What an interesting approach!

Sounds a little too quiet for me, but must be really cool and relaxing, to go with the wife.

I like you Americans for your entrepreneur spirit. Congratulations.

Cruiserwannabe will become famous soon enough
Folks,my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Captains Rick and Karen last year when we took a trip with them aboard Wanderbird, the wonderful stories they have of the ship and when they brought it across the atlantic are very entertaining,as for the chow they have something for everyone as I am a meat and potato type of guy..I was very pleased, these are just plain wonderful folk and we hope to sail with them again.
As for anyone considering crewing for them I am sure this would be a very pleasant and exciting venture.
Our only regret was the wheather gods where against us and one of the hurricane remnants kept us from venturing on for safety reasons we stayed in Penobscot Bay but with the crew and passengers attitude a wonderful time was had.

What an interior! The cruise sounds great even though I might have to sneak on a few slim-jims or pork rhinds to make it through the vegetarian meals. The price looked really reasonable compared to the normal commercial carribean-type cruise.

If I were to have more time on my hands, I'd crew up in a jiffy. But with putting up my senior thesis show and then rebuilding Hobbyn, I'm a bit tied up. Sounds great though...
