I read the interviews and enjoyed them. There is no substitute for first hand information.

PS - today's interview is up!
Been out of my "home" country long enough I don't know what is "home" these days! Unfortunately, not on a boat...

Interesting project there. Q. Are you doing it because you've got too much time on your hands??

I can see how few people would meet that though I sure like the idea. Home always seem to drag one back, if not just for visits and details, then for sad family reasons. I guess some day, when we are very much older it will be possible but I'm in no rush to get there.

Still great idea, helps with the dreaming.

Have faith that the oceans are going to rise and flood the world, that plague and pestilence brought on by Climate Change is going to punish us for not believing. Please do as they say it is our only hope. :P

Someone you might consider contacting is Nick Jaffe. He has recently completed a partial circumnavigation on board a contessa 26. England to New York, cross country(towed) to San Francisco then on to Hawaii and home to Australia. I don't know him personally but have followed his journey via his website.

Close to the mark. I have plenty to do but as I told the interviewer at Three Sheets NW, I originally created the site while failing to sleep because my to do list was too long!

Thanks.

If someone flew home for 2 weeks for a family emergency or holidays, that still seems to be "cruising outside of home country for 2 years" to me. I definitely don't want to be legalistic about it...it's just a guideline for me.

@ johnnyandjebus - I will contact him this week. Thanks!
@ wanderingstar - Thanks!

I created a "how you can help" page at the top bar today and tomorrow the next interview goes live.

I really liked the answer to the trade goods question. I've never head of trade goods before, sounds interesting.

Thanks utchuckd - I've just opened a discussion post for readers to suggest follow up questions to the first 10 interviews and next week is an interview with Evans & Beth aboard Hawk.

Excellent website! and nice "bank of questions". I'm reading "Bumfuzzle" right now and enjoying the surprising answers.
BTW, nice choice in boats you have there yourself.
