Northwest Passage Attempt for TV Show

Hello SailNet Community:

I am a producer who works for a non-fiction television production company, and we are interested in producing a program about the "recently-opened" Northwest Passage. Specifically, we are interested in filming a crew who wants to make the trek, or one of similar scale and historical pertinence.

This is a serious post -- we do understand the magnitude of this undertaking (at least, I believe we do). The Northwest Passage is no walk in the park; clearly it is the journey of a lifetime. And that is why we would like to tell such a story.

If anyone is interested, or has any thoughts on the matter, I would like to hear from you. Feel free to reply to my post, or e-mail me in person:

Northwest Passage 2011 Expedition - 55' M/V GREY GOOSE

Chateau et al SailNet members,

We still have two open berths for our Northwest Passage 2011 Expedition.
Here is my contact information if you are interested in joining - this is a share-a-ride voyage and all expenses are being split between the 8 crew - right now its about $10,000 each and is expected to rise from increases in fuel and Arctic foods.

Greygoose—

Thank you for spamming the forums. Your most recent post is CLEARLY AN ADVERTISEMENT, and as such, please pay for an ad rather than spamming us with commercial posts.

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.

Requiring 5 posts to contact another member

I think the SailNet policy requiring an authenticated member to have five (5) posts is rediculous - what does the number of posts have to do with contacting a member with a private message - only alternative is to post a reply to his post.

I'll take your advise under consideration.

Smooth seas,

Chill out dog, he's not selling anything. It's common practice and ethical to share the expense of a sailing adventure. I for one, like to see posts like that. I wish them luck.
