Non-Consumer Based Cruising

PelagicNomad: Hey Pirates

I'm a minimalist who loves nature/water...and live aboard my gaff rigged Westsail 33 "Panthalassa" which I wouldn't trade for the world!

Never a fan of mindless gadgetry/consumerism/the throwaway non-consumer based philosophy is evolving from books such as Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor, Voyaging On A Small Income, Sailing The Farm (downloadable in PDF for free), The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and a handful of other thinking nonconformists... The common theme is a functional, practical, simple and self-reliant approach, overwhelmingly crediting old/ancient designs, constructed with modern materials!

Also, where practicable, I'd like to stock the boat by bartering for organic, locally grown produce... And I dream about developing all things non-consumer based cruising as a group... To keep things simple/achievable...I'd like to start by working through the practical tasks in Sailing The Farm and The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and see where it goes...

Ok, so a little more about these books:

"Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor" by naval architect Czeslaw Marchaj compares modern boat design with those more than a hundred years old. In particular, he praises an 1894 North Sea rescue boat, designed by Colin Archer - which my boat is a fibreglass derivative of.

"Voyaging On A Small Income" by Annie Hill is about non-consumer based cruising - having no fridge, eating beans, celestial navigation, and combining old/ancient concepts with modern materials. A couple started with basically nothing at the age of 18, owned/voyaged on a couple of boats, developed a ruthless "cost vs benefit analysis" built their dream boat, and retired by the age of 28 in the early eighties, with enough finance invested to return 1,300 pounds pa, which they both lived off.

Sailing The Farm, by Ken Neumeyer is about "Seasteading":
"With a couple of hundred pounds of seeds, a few dried fruits and a solar still for fresh water, a family could sail around the world without ever having to make that long upwind tack to the grocery store for manufactured products shipped from half a world away."

This dude also teaches us to ditch refrigeration and make/use all kinds of simple, funky tools. The idea is, go organic, buy, forage, and/or grow food on an island... Dehydrate it to store efficiently. Aboard, grow a herb garden, wheatgrass and spirulina, while seeds are sprouted and eaten live. Eat seaweed. Make cheese, yoghurt, milkshakes, dips...with powdered milk. Rehydrate and juice dried fruits/berries. Grind grain and prepare all your food from scratch, daily, without removing or killing the goodness...

Emiliano Marino's family come from a long line of prominent seafarers. He understands traditional boats/handmade sails/real seamanship, and the value of a holistic approach... Entering a market where everything is designed to break, kinda broke his heart... So he wrote a practical guide to encourage self-reliance, called "The Sailmaker's Apprentice"

"I am still, fifteen years later, angered by the hype and ethics of the production sailmaking industry, and morn the general loss of traditional skill and artistry in sailmaking. Furthermore, I deplore a wasteful, thrill-seeking, exploitative economy of sails and sailing, so lacking in foresight except where making a bigger, faster buck is concerned".


Young fun crew sailing TWO BOATS in the Caribbean

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:47 f
Location: British Virgin Islands
Destination: Australia
Logged in: 8 hours ago

Geoffrey&Tara: Ahoy! We're a young Australian couple (Geoffrey 34 and Tara 28) with TWO BOATS - a 47ft catamaran called Wild Thing and a 43ft monohull called Lakota.

We will be sailing both boats together around the Caribbean from now until at least October 2017. We plan to sail the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Cuba and Jamaica in this time. Then over the last few months of the year we will sail down the east coast of Central America - Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. We plan to cross Panama Canal around December, over to Galapagos in January, then slowly exploring the islands of the Pacific Ocean back to Australia over all of 2018.

We are looking for young fun crew to join us on our adventures!!

We're in the British Virgin Islands now on August 1st ~

There are 7 double bedrooms in total on both boats, each with their own ensuite. Ideally we're looking for couples or a pair of close friends to share a room together, so that we can fill our capacity to sleep 14 people. But single crew are welcome too!

There is a contribution expected from all crew. This covers your food, accommodation, adventures, fuel and boat expenses whilst on board. We share all the cooking, cleaning and other duties. No sailing experience is necessary, but you must be willing to learn!

Please look at our photos....

You can LiKE our page to see more photos and follow our adventures. We'd prefer that you message us via our FACEBOOK page too, if possible. Talk soon!

Sundowners: Hello all.
I purchased my catamaran last June and have been sailing the Caribbean ever since. Most of the trips were solo and I have decided is sucks sailing solo. I'd rather be sharing the experience with other good people. I'm leaving marquesas August 5 for tuamotus and will aim for Tahiti December.
Good fun people or person only.
If you are a free loader, lazy, energy stealer, a conspiracy theorist or have poor personal hygiene please keep searching.
The intelligent, fun, adventurous and awesome should make contact.
I'll tolerate vegetarians if I can enjoy a steak without a lecture.
Expect diving, snorkeling, kiting etc.
Sorry, no couples.

Jethro: I'm looking for a lady to join me on the boat from August 22nd for 2 weeks.. You need to be fit, active, healthy and good company. If you suffer from arthritis or cannot lift 20kg, you won't be able to crew for me. I don't have any expectations of an intimate relationship - not that I'm against one, but I'm more interested in finding someone to share my travels and help with sailing. Cooking ability is a must and if you speak Spanish it would be great!

I'll teach you to sail (if you don't know how) and take you to the most beautiful islands and beaches in Queensland.

I have a cat on board with me, so you'll have to like them! I don't charge anything for food or boat costs and non-alcoholic drinks. All I ask in return is someone to prepare and cook meals for a couple of weeks. Please send a current photo if you're interested.

Only 1 position is on offer.

Intrepid59: I am a 57 year-old divorced male. I am extroverted, Intuitive, Assertive, and Love to Think. I guess Iím the ultimate devilís advocate. But sometimes that will come off as being argumentative. I am a single parent and live with my 2 teenage boys. I currently fly airplanes for a living!

I was an infantry officer in the US Army, traveled extensively as an international mountaineering guide, ran for the US House of Representatives, been imprisoned for civil disobedience, been shot at, drank some beer and was present when the fat lady sung. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in philosophy and an MA in theology. I am an adventure junkie at heart. I love to travel, ski, camp, hike, mountain bike, Tae Kwon Do, mountain climb and sailing! Flying is in my DNA. But so is sailing. I am currently planning a world circumnavigation sailing trip to begin in October 2017.

CheekyMonkey: Hello! My name is Ryan, I'm the skipper of this beautiful boat which I purchased about two years ago and have been sailing around the world ever since. I've had many crew come and go along the way and its nearly always a very positive experience for me and for crew.

The boat is a 44' Helia Catamaran, spacious and safe. Currently I have one other guy sailing with me, a 29 y/o american hitch-hiker I picked up in Tahiti. We are having a blast and would welcome some more fun, positive people to come and share in the adventures. We will be in Fiji around the 18-20 of this month and will be looking for crew to join us there. We'll spend a bit of time in Fiji, no hurry at all, and then plan to visit Vanuatu, New Caledonia and on to Australia.
