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

I agree that most cruisers live "off the grid" so my story is far from unique.

I have enjoyed cruising from Seattle to Baja since July 2012 and am now currently anchored in Puerto Vallarta. Living "off grid" for me means minimal impact on the environment and my pocketbook. I make electricity with solar and wind, use a composting head, anchor out most of the time, and eat caught fish. I would be interested in participating in a TV documentary. My blog is "The Voyage of Mariah" at kenpainter.blogspot.com and you can email me at kennethpainter@hotmail if interested.

Cheers, Ken

Have been off grid at home for last 12 years. Same thing on the boat but don't live aboard all the time (winters are pretty frosty up here).

Is that mullet or muffler?

I'd say Brent meets your criteria. He'd probably make good tv too. Kind of like a boating Macgyver but hopefully without the mullet.

We are planning to sail to the caribbean in August 2014. To do so, we plan to begin live aboard sometime this summer. Our adventure includes myself, my wife, my son (wife's step son) and two Alaskan Malamutes. We're not quite there yet, but might qualify.

Here is our Blog, detailing our preparations:

Naw, any really salty character would get banned from this site......sorry if I offend anyone, that is just how this particular site sails.....

Jgbrown That's exactly the problem. The stories that get published are the entertaining ones. The people who are willing to be interviewed also tend towards the eccentric. Creates a rather skewed picture imo.

If you buy me scotch I'll tell you some of the incredibly wacko stories he's collected already. Boat people are strange. I say that with love and respect. And wonderment.
