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.

mstern 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.

sailingdog Why not talk to the water channel, which supposedly specializes in water-sports related programming

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.

We are not sold yet. We are shooting and editing demo stuff now. We have taken the show to Discovery Channel, my wife works for them, and they have expressed some interest but are not taking any new show right now. If we get produced the working permits and gear problems will be taken care of by the production staff. That is the stuff my wife currently does for Discovery. She is a coordinator on "Not Your Average Travel Guide." If we dont get picked up we will shoot with what we have and its not the type of stuff that would attract attention.

Bestfriend - I use dreamweaver 8, flash 8, photoshop cs and about 10 other programs for variouse little things. I have not read "the long way" yet. It is on the shelf and on the list. Did he not use it much? I use it a lot, any time I am beating and it gets over 22 knots, it just balances the boat better.

Fearless,
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.

bestfriend 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?

I spent 6 hours hove to off the coast of Santa Cruz Island in 30 - 35 knots and she did fine but I have added a rolling staysail and am going to have to experiment with and see what works best now. I carry a PARA-TECH Sea Anchors as well and if need be I will use that. It is a bit to rig and pull in so I hope I can come up with a sail combination that will work but I have not had that kind of weather since I put the staysial on.

As for the web site, thank you everyone for your input. I would need to be able to sell about 8 of them to be able to sell them cheap and make it worth my time.
