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

I received this email today:

If you think you qualify post your info here in the thread.

"We are a major television company developing a documentary series about what’s it like to live off the grid on a sailboat. Do you know of any salty sea dogs who live on the hook in North America, Hawaii or the Caribbean who might be good characters to feature in the series? If so please contact us".

Have at it you Salty Dogs!

How much are they paying? They make money off the interview by selling commercial time, we should get a part of that since we provide the material to be aired.

I have been living off the grid in the key's and Western Caribbean for over 20 years, but now it's only 2 week's at a time as I am a Merchant Marine and work 2 week's on a tug. P.M. me and I'll start a dialogue via e-mail.

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

My wife, son, dog, and I are peculiar in that he and she are disabled. He has Achondroplastic dwarfism (he's 15) and has endured many surgeries but is well now and she suffered a major injury and was in a wheelchair 4 years ago (mostly recovered) and we're out cruising. There isn't anyplace to anchor where we are now, Northern Baja, but we spent most of the winter at anchor up north and after we leave Ensenada in November we'll be at anchor full time again.
You can check out our blog as well, see my signature line.
The dog and I are healthy for now...
