|Fearless||The blog is cool but not quite what I have in mind. What I would do would be a serperate web site for each person and I could make them look a lot nicer then the blog and have more features like the winlink tracking and mailing list or subscription list so cruisers could email everyone who is interested with one letter. The blog would be cheaper for people though.|

|bestfriend||Cool, mstern, thanks. If I decide not to give the site its own domain name, that will work good.|

Is this the sort of web product you were envisioning? This site provides a limited service that includes templates and hosting for free, and a pay service that allows more photos, etc.

|bestfriend||He used it a lot, it seems. That book is a must read for you before you go. I realize you won't be going as far south, but there is a ton of common sense knowledge in that book. Also check out the Barefoot Navigator, and the recommended reading thread. I have purchased most of the books highly recommended and they are a great resource.|

I wouldn't really need said template, but I will follow along with you on your journy with great interest and some envy as well. Godspeed and good wind.

Only 8? I think you could do that, no problem. I can manipulate apple's stuff pretty well, but it has its limitations, and I am too cheap to buy adobe. What program do you like to use to web build, and what hosting site do you use? I am using bluehost, but it is driving me nuts and I want to switch.
Depending on the price, you could put me down for one. Can you make it so that titles and such are blank so that I could make my own headings? Say for sections like repairs, or daysails. I am thinking of something I could use for everyday around the Bay things, as I will not be circumnavigating any time soon.
About your sails, I am guessing you may have read "the long way", remember how much he used his storm jib?

If you have a television show then why bother with these small pickings of website design? What network are you signed up with?
Since you are carrying professional HD video equipment, what are you doing about customs for the gear? And what about immigration, since you will be working in these various countries?
