I hope Seamanship is the correct topic for this.

That's a member of Sailnet, financing his cruising with a little side work.

Hey, don't give away CruisingDad's secret to success!! :D


Man, those guys are nuts. Are there any more clips of them actually sailing with the truck on board? I imagine there'd be a few white knuckles in the stronger puffs.

Hi John,

I looked around for later video clips but can't find any of the departure or any later arrival. Maybe because the boat never managed to cast off, or more likely, there was no later arrival.
