hi,
Im building a double ender 12 meter boat which i intend to sail all the way to china. Hopefully start end of next year. Im looking for crew/friends interesting in joining. Space for 6 people totally.

Interested Person

Hello Zeyang-
I am a farmer/sailor and am very interested in joining your crew. I have been waiting for the right opportunity to leave the land and my goats. Currently I am making cheese and working on a "farm to school" project here in Maine. Could you please send more information?
-Thank you
Taryn

Another month passed by. Ive been working on finishing up all the planks and thankfully last week the last plank was tackweld in position. What a boring work. Every week since april i have been doing the same. But this week was different. I start working on the keelplank and to reinforce the wooden frames inside the boat, so they wont get loose when flipping the hull. Anyway, it start to look like a real boat. The first snow is here. Thankfully i was smart enough to build a boatshed around the hull, so even if its not insulated i can just continue work during the winter. Its a little cold but i have a world map and can dream about those small pacific islands while working. Zeyang Join our sailing coop and come sailing to Middle Kingdom.

I read your whole thread on WeldingWeb, it is fascinating.
I sail traditional wooden boats and I'm very impressed with your work.
I hope to see you on the water one day.

Contact issues

I tried to contact you via private message, however, because I haven't posted 5 comments before I'm not able to use Private messages. I am interested in joining you on the trip from europe to asia at the end of 2010. I am currently living in a small village on the Bering Sea, called Dillingham, Alaska. I would be willing to fly to europe for the Departure. If you could send me an email adress I would be happy to send you more information about myself and I would like to learn more about your plans. thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you,

Adam

I'm interested

Hej Zeyang,

I'm currently in Sweden and in a "past life" spent many years sailing small boats back and forth across the Pacific. I am very interested in what you are doing and am impressed with the pictures I have seen of your project. If you're not too far away from where I am up near Gavle, I'd love to come see your boat and shoot the breeze a bit about your trip to China.
