Everyone has a dream. We are actively pursuing ours and could use a little help.
After years of working hard at various jobs, adventures and travels, living and learning, we have come up with the ultimate project for a long term amazing adventure.
Imagine building a 38 foot wooden sailboat from scratch, with your own two hands. Cutting down trees, milling them into lumber, melting 9,000 lbs of lead for ballast, then actually building the boat!
Once the boat is built you can then go anywhere in the world.
That's exactly what we are doing and we don't want to do it alone, we want you to come with us!
We want you to feel the rush of a 70' pine slamming into the ground, the straining muscles as a1,500+ pound log is rolled onto the sawmill by hand, the trepidation of 4.5 tons of molten lead over a roaring fire and the joy of antique hand tools singing their way though the timbers to finally reveal a beautiful curvaceous sailboat named Arabella.
Then the real adventure can begin, taking Arabella to the 4 corners of the world. The fjords of Norway, Caribbean, Japan, the coast of Alaska, Greece, Italy, Spain, the Baltic's... The possibilities are endless.
Wait! Before you tell us you can't join us due to your job or family or just the circumstances of life in general. What if we brought this adventure to you? What if we documented the whole experience and allowed you to jump in and out of it at your own will. A moment of escape from the daily grind as you come along with us on this incredible journey? Videos will be uploaded at regular intervals and you can follow along with us as you wish.
We are documenting the whole journey. From the sweat and tears going into the build, all the way to the unknown which comes with finally setting sail. Why not be a part of it?
Feel free to email us with any questions or comments! [email protected]
So, reaching this goal would mean more content going up more regularly!
In addition to this, we are going to be coming up to some big costs once the hull is built. We are going to need to start putting in systems, which are going to be expensive. So any extra we make here will be going towards saving up for those.
Thank you all for the support and helping Arabella come to life!
