Book - Sail the Farm

I'm sure that at least some of you here have read this book, but if not, here it is in PDF format. It is a great read! I downloaded it from another forum that I am a member of. Even though it seems to be released for download, I am going to send the author some money to pay for it.

I have it on one of my office servers. Be patient, as my bandwidth can be limiting at times. Tell me what you think!

I've only read a bit so far but it seems quite interesting. Looking forward to finding the time to read more. Thanks for posting.

Thank you so much for posting this! We borrowed the book form a fellow cruiser and were wondering how we would get a copy to keep... Perfect timing!!

Yea, I had to take it down for a bit because of the bandwidth thing. It's back up now.

Another book along these lines that I just picked up from Amazon, is "Sea Steading". I haven't read it yet but it did receive some glowing reviews.

Hi,
I joined this site to get a copy of "Sailing The Farm" for a friend; you came up in my searches for it.

I bought the book, and have a copy at home; but, I'm trying to help inspire a friend who is considering a house boat trip down the Mississippi River... I spent a couple years travelling down the Miss. and around the East Coast in a canoe, and found the book to be very helpful!

I found it online about two weeks ago in PDF, and I thought I saved it, but I can't find it now; I've been looking in my computer, and online for about 4 hours this morning. I've downloaded it from a few places, but, haven't been able to see it. I tried the link you posted, but couldn't access it.

Could you please help me get a link, or an e-copy of "Sailing The Farm" for my friend? She's not likely to join a site, or download anything; if it's not easy for her to see it, she probably never will. She's an online friend; I have her e-mail address, but not her home address, or I'd just buy her a copy, and have it shipped to her.

Thank you very much for your time.

Aloha,
Aloysious

I was able to find paperbacks for sale, between $200, and $30; and, you might be able to find if for less if you look.

It's a good enough book, it's worth every penny of $30.

If you live on a boat.. you should find ways for the book to pay for it's self... many times over.

Like I wrote.. I only know the lady's e-mail address, or, I'd buy her the book, and have them ship it to her; I'd buy a paper back copy today, if I didn't have one already.
