Hellosailor; I'm sure it's just me, but when I hear or read ecosystems and human coexisitence with such in the same sentence, then mix in a little economic impact on said ecosystem, it's just a habit with me to check the moisture content of the gun powder.

I'm as eco friendly as the next person, but I'm real leary of enviro orgs, research groups or workshops that use terms like sustainable development strategies in their quest for their enviromental enlightenment, as those strategies always end in the loss of usability.


A good example of this restriction in usability is what's going on in the coastal waters of California, they established a marine reserve which morphed into many reserves and now they are talking about connecting these reserves up and down the coast; this is all fine and dandy, however, livelyhoods depend on these areas and in some cases coastal tribes depend on these areas for their own sustainability and yet their once territorial waters are now " No take Zones ", so much for ecosystem and Human coexsistence.

In all honesty, I would guess Mariah is probably persuing the best method to solicit support - although maybe the wrong way. She would do well explaining and introducing herself her and more about what they are doing. Many cruisers here, SSCA, and CF. More in-depth effort and dialogue and she might have a outside chance.

I got a brand new 65' boat she can use for a price. put the boat on the sea wise transport and lets go. I could stick a couple more fuel tanks in her.

I think she is who she says she is and is just trying to find a way to "pay" for what she wants to do without incurring costs she can't afford.
I'm not gonna support it and I think it is kind of crass making your first post to a community a "pitch"...but hey, it's a free country.
Who knows...some eco-cruiser may be out there.

It is a rather crass way of joining the sailnet community... I'm sure that she could get a grant of some sort to do what she wants to do. She really just needs to do some research and put some effort into it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You have it in one CD. I've yet to check out her website but I'll do so in a while, however the request comes across as typically spammish.

Now on the other hand if I had the boat I'd jump right in there. Nice tax deduction, definitely a BHL kind of thing to do and a scientific research vessel gets to go lots of interesting places. My choice of vessel would be Peter Blakes Seamaster. Now where's that rich uncle who's on his last legs.......

Scripps would be picking up the fuel and everything else, they are just looking for the loan of a boat, preferably crewed by an owner or two.
...well if they are going to pay for the beer and the hookers... I could leave from Lake Ontario this weekend, so I should be there sometime in early October...does anyone know what time the Panama Canal closes ???

Aw man! I missed a good thread! And to think, all I did today was surf and work on the boat I need to get back inside on the computer more often.
Hey sailormann, stop by on the way, lets race! I'll get hookers if you get the beer.
