Finally, a reality show that I might actually tune into. Although I'm sure the reality would be "produced" and it would still be full of crap but it could still be pretty interesting.

Re: Does anyone fit the bill here for being on this Documentary?

I'm not sure what it means to be off the grid but, we haven't seen our shore power cord in well over a year, The solar panel takes care of all our power needs. That also means we don't stay at any marinas we like staying on the hook better. A dingy ride back and forth to shore has its benefits, its one of the things that keeps me in shape. We don't really have a home port, Oriental N.C. is on the transem, but we haven't been there more then 2 days in the last 2 years. The whole idea for moving aboard was so we could travel south in the winters and north in the summer while felling like we are always home. The ability to move around cheap is one of the best parts. Stopping in achorages and meet other sailors along the way is the other.We are never in a hurry so we have sailed most of the time. We have spent less then $1000 in fuel while covering more then 5000nm. We also keep cost down by haveing a pay as you go cell phone and air card for internet.

Been living aboard since 1969.

Presently cruising the Windward Islands w/ my girlfriend.
No credit cards, no residence beyond the boat, no phone.

It is because I live of the grid on my boat that I would not have a TV crew somping around on my life and boat. Don't have television on board either so would not be able or indeed want to see what romantic trash they cobble together once the filming is done.

If it is a true to life depiction of the joy and work involved in living a real life on board a sailboat I would be interested in it. If it on the other hand turns out to be yet another of the long line of outdated cookie cutter reality shows that humanity has grown so hateful of then no, no "Skippers of Jersey Shore" for me thank you.
