hi,
Im building a double ender 12 meter boat which i intend to sail all the way to china. Hopefully start end of next year. Im looking for crew/friends interesting in joining. Space for 6 people totally.
The boat is build in aluminium and is pretty strong and safe. will have chinese lug-rig. Prior sailing experience is not necessary but willing to help run the project forward is appreciated. People who can help finish up the boat (sail sewing, sew interior, woodworking, etc) will get prioritity onbaord when choosing crew.

contact me for more info.

thanks,

zeyang

Another month passed by. Ive been working on finishing up all the planks and thankfully last week the last plank was tackweld in position. What a boring work. Every week since april i have been doing the same. But this week was different. I start working on the keelplank and to reinforce the wooden frames inside the boat, so they wont get loose when flipping the hull. Anyway, it start to look like a real boat. The first snow is here. Thankfully i was smart enough to build a boatshed around the hull, so even if its not insulated i can just continue work during the winter. Its a little cold but i have a world map and can dream about those small pacific islands while working. Zeyang Join our sailing coop and come sailing to Middle Kingdom.

Hej Zeyang,

I'm currently in Sweden and in a "past life" spent many years sailing small boats back and forth across the Pacific. I am very interested in what you are doing and am impressed with the pictures I have seen of your project. If you're not too far away from where I am up near Gavle, I'd love to come see your boat and shoot the breeze a bit about your trip to China.
