Reid Stowe? The guy moored his home-built ferro schooner in New York and Hoboken for years until people started asking for rent. Fancies himself a painter and sculptor and has said he gets massages from Jesus and Buddha. Most recently living on his schooner up a river in Guyana. Former drug dealer who claims to hold the record for drifting at sea (without coming to port) for three whole years.

Also, he is the composer, singer and star of quite possibly the worst song/video of all time:

I wish I fit the bill, it should be an interesting documentary. I'm excited to see if it is produced.

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

Sure we will give it a shot! We don't own a tv and its been about 5 years since we have watched tv but why not. I'm sure they would get a real kick out of our lifestyle. Just watching us anchor in itself is enough to have most people rolling around on the living room floor. I mean not to mention the late night partying that goes until sunrise. My only worries would be that the camera men and producers just wouldn't be able to keep up. We aren't world cruisers but we are out here motoring from port to port with the sails up on a regular basis! A major plus to the network would be that my girlfriend is also one of the worlds best talkers! She would keep everyone enthralled for hours on end. What else do they need? HAHA

Those are some of the coolest pajamas I have ever seen. Are you allowed to wear them without painting your face to match, though. That's too much prep before bedtime for me.

My boyfriend and I are actually about to become liveaboards for the first time with our two dogs come November. Not sure their goal of the documentary but we could provide an interesting angle as we learn to adjust from big city NYC to living on a 34' sailboat in the Caribbean.

S/V Kitty hawk. They are a live aboard full time couple with two kids in diapers. Both were born aboard ship. The youngest was this May while at the marina in Charleston. The local paper did a write up. If the film is for real I could probably track them down. They are a fun family with lots of miles...

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

Many boaters on the BC coast have lived off the grid for extended times but the absolute leader was Allen Farrell and his wife Sherie.Minimalist life style in home made comfort. Known and missed by all, he showed the way. Several books tell the story. Google and learn. Last thing the Farrells would tolerate is a bunch of yahoos with cameras on a mission and I'm with him on that.It was bad enough when the coast life was bastardized by eastern interests in the 'Beachcombers' They know not and know not they know not and lets keep it that way.

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

Hi, Its hard to know how old this post is but if it is for real I think we can come up with some great options. We have planned our entire life for this adventure and we are set to begin this spring on our journey. Our goal is to show how and average couple without a lot of money and a drive to explore can bring this experience and excitement into your home. We would like this to be an interactive experience in which you can come along with us and share the day to day life of our island adventure. Not just read someone's account of what they went through but to talk with us in real time and ask anything you want to know or see. This is a chance for all the people waiting for their oppurtunity to depart to come along with us and learn firsthand the adventure that we all dream about. This is our Two Tickets to Paradise.

'We would like this to be an interactive experience in which you can come along with us and share the day to day life of our island adventure.'
That live streaming multimedia at sea should only cost you a buck or two per minute, it is incredibly cheap these days. Of course, if you have people (or your server) call you by satphone so you don't have to keep the streaming on 24x7, that should also make an incredible difference in what your satellite internet costs will be.
Kinda like a live porn webcam session, but at sea and minus the porn. Considering how profitable the porn industry is, you might be onto something there. As long as you can get a good satellite rate.
