Dream Big, Work Hard, and Surround Yourself With Good People.   A 75 foot, 23 meter Sailboat for doing research work on the oceans of the world is our Big Dream.  It's Hard Work and piece by piece she is being build from scratch in our front yard.   Good People from all over the world come to help, provided parts, advice, and inspiration.  Here is a chance for you to be apart.  --Doug
Tiers
Gunners
$1 or more per month
Historically it was the Gunners who watched for the safety of their captain, aiming the cannons themselves.

We appreciate your support and hope you enjoy early access to our videos and special content.

Boatswain
$5 or more per month

Boatswains supervised all activities on a ship. Depending on the size of the ship and crew, they could have one or several duties. Duties ranged from anchoring to naval provisions.  
We know we can't do it without your support and in return, you will receive 5% off items in our Junk Store (Challenge coins not included).

Sailing Master
$10 or more per month

Sailing Masters were in charge of navigation and piloting, a difficult task as charts were often inaccurate or nonexistent.    To let you know how much we value your support, you'll receive 10% off any items (other than Challenge Coins)  in our Junk Store.

Quartermaster
$20 or more per month

As a Captain's right hand, the Quartermaster was in charge when the Captain was not around. He had the authority, and he could punish men for not obeying commands.

In reality we likely won't have to punish anybody but it's never a bad idea to be prepared.

For this privilege, we will reward you with an offical SV Seeker Coffee Mug as well as 20% off any items in our Junk Store (not including Challenge Coins).    

Goals
$2,046 of $2,500 per month
Outfitting a boat easily cost as much as the materials to build the hull,  Paint, hydraulics, solar, electrical, watermakers, plumbing, lighting.  Let's give our ocean researchers the best free boat on the water.  When we hit this goal we start sand blasting and painting the exterior hull!
