I can't stop catching a picture whenever I see a good sunrise or sunset. I know lots of people love them too. Not everybody has time or a good horizon to catch a look. Boatswain level Patrons will receive a dozen or so sun splash images each month (weather and bandwidth permitting). You will be free to use these image files as you please; just make sure to tell people where you got them.

  • A dozen or so Sunrise or Sunset Pictures each month

About Bubba the Pirate (Todd Townsend)

I am a writer. I write long form essays and articles. Since 2007, my blog includes posts about my boat projects and my adventures around boats. Three of my articles have been published in sailing magazines and a piece of short fiction appeared on a short story website. In that time I have also had four project boats and a variety of jobs to support them. My goal has always been to live a vagabond life aboard a small sailboat. I've done a lot of boatwork and a good amount of sailing too. The wandering is about to begin in earnest. My latest project is a Bayfield 29, Ruth Ann. She is nearly ready to go back in the water. The blog will soon shift gears from boatwork to sailing!!

My blog, occasional video updates, and the podcast I’m developing, will be posted online openly and free of charge; as always. Any support here is greatly appreciated. Patrons can get early access to blog posts, sunrise/set pictures, annual BtP swag, access to Live Q&As, as well as previews of sections of the book I'm writing and a discount when the book is released.
