Helping Crew

$2
per month

Every little bit helps us keep the boat moving and our weekly videos! Here, you may offer us a little help to keep the boat sailing and to finance our video content!  For this small donation (barely the cost a cup of coffee, once a month!) you help us far more than you can believe!  We need your help if we are going to keep going and keep making videos!  Therefore, we also want to give back to you for your donations.  Here is what we give for this Tier:

  • Crew Only website access: on our website, you gain access to the Crew Only section where we go into much more detail on aspects of the boat build and voyages to come.

  • Patreon Community Access: First off... at this donation Tier, you get access to our Patreon Community Access, where we will read and possibly reply to your comments.

  • Early access to the overture videos.   You get to see the main videos we create earlier than the normal public!  (Please note that we are still in the planning stages, purchasing equipment, the boat, etc., so our videos will only begin later on. If you wish to wait until they start before beginning your donations, that's your choice!  However, if you decide to start early donations they will help us get the cameras rolling even sooner.

About S/V Lynx

Have you ever dreamed about sailing away to far and exotic locations or had the desire to see the world and experience adventures wonderful enough to last a lifetime?  This is your chance to follow along as virtual crewmen as we build a 50' performance catamaran and then take her on an epic voyage as we sail around this amazing planet!

Not only that, but we value your input!  You can gain various levels of access to the crew, including planning sessions, chat servers, and even video chat sessions for live interaction!

For the next 2 years, we will be constructing a Schionning Designs, Solitaire 1500 (a semi-custom performance/cruising catamaran that we designed based off of the Solitaire 1490).  We will put out weekly videos as we build this awesome boat!

Your patronage will help S/V Lynx and her crew build this boat and make our way around the planet as she circumnavigates the world, stopping in many interesting places, seeing the wonders of the world while passing through more than a hundred different countries or territories on her epic travels around our amazing blue Planet!

We will be chronicling the building process and her epic voyage with weekly videos  where we film everything about the trip, from designing and building our performance hybrid catamaran, S/V Lynx, to sailing her 125,000 nautical miles around the planet on an epic voyage.

All of your Patreon donations go straight towards financing the making of the construction and, eventual, sailing videos!  You can get direct access to speaking with our captain and crew, discussing upcoming video subjects, the construction, route, the places we visit, and any of the other the things we plan to accomplish on this epic voyage.
