30 cruising boats interviewed

After more than 6 months up and running, I've now interviewed 30 boats for the Interview With A Cruiser Project. That's more than 300 responses from experienced cruisers to selections from a bank of questions.

A public thank you to the first 30 boats for volunteering their time:

Annie Laurie
Billabong
Bumfuzzle
Callipygia
Carina
Cetus
Constellation
Esper
Final Straw
Hawk
Infidien
Kalaerin
Long Tall Sally
Malua
Mist
Pacific Bliss
Patron
Puff
Saga
Sereia
Shiva
Slapdash
So It Goes
Solstice
Sword
Tackless II
Taleisin
Tamure
Velella
Zia

Also a very big thank you to people who have nominated themselves or others for interviews, suggested questions, or spread the word about the project on their own blogs/sites/lists.

We are curious about your endproduct. As we have been cruising and living aboard since 1972, we likely share much in common with those on your list. What will you be doing with this collection of information? Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Thanks everyone and I hope you keep reading and suggesting people to interview. I'm very happy at how much traffic the site is getting. It seems useful and/or interesting to a good group of people.

Hi Aythya crew -

That is a good question that I'm glad you asked here because I've been asked it before via email. I don't have any plans to do anything with the material ...other than continuing to put the interviews up on the site as I have been doing. I won't rule out the possibility of writing something with it in the future because "never" is a long time but I don't have any plans to write anything based on it right now. It's already a lot of work to maintain the flow while we're beginning cruising. I have no plans to add to that load.

I'm doing it for fun...although feel free to buy me a cold frosty one via the website or buy one for any of the boats interviewed if you see them out cruising.
