Let’s Collaborate for Mutual Growth!!!
As you know.. I’m building a Pedal Powered boat.. two actually.. and I’ll be piloting Boat1Boat1 is already rebuilt in to a 22′ hull.. I have a *few* steps to go but she’s moving along nicely. I decided to concentrate on Boat2 this past year to Get Out on the Water and test out my Transmission and Pedal Drive. around the world (with Boat2Boat2 didn’t grow in length.. the DONATED tandem kayak was modified by cutting a hole in her hull so that the Pedal Drive could pass- thru.. I’ve done everything myself and the only things left for her completion are~ basically~ making the Captains Chair stable (height adjustable) and building an armature to mount the rudder on to.. so I can turn while pedalling In Towtowing a vessel of similar or smaller size will increase my energey requirements ‘Only Nominally..’ and it will give me A) an escape vessel and B) added stowage. Boat2 will be hauling a month+ of food, all of my camera gear, select webcasting gear and more.. like- My Bike.. so that Boat1 can be svelte and virtually empty.. emptied.. for added storage capacity.. so..
What Help do I NEEDThere are Needs Aplenty for this project.. so if you want to Help Out but you aren’t sure about sponsorship.. you can check out the Amazon Shopping List for Gift Ideas (link opens in a new window). It’s already configured to ship directly to me- except for some products that are only available to ship within the US.. but that’s not an insurmountalbe hurdle.. just Reach Out and we can chat about those select items.?
Insurmountable?? Not in the slightest…
Thus far, I have funded the project 100% with stippends I have *borrowed* from my handcrafting business The General Bean.. borrowing a fiver here, a twenty there.. and a couple super kind donations.. but to really GROW and for the Project to start taking on it’s own life.. and to be able to forecast a very real Departure Date for The Circumnavigation.. I need help! Boat1 *could* be finished during the calendar year of 2024 with your help!
With a total to- travel distance being 45,000Km roughly and a cost to travel being estimated at $500,000 USF.. One Kilometer costs $12 approx. and with a Chase Boat & webcast production added in to enhance audience attraction and maintenance.. the cost is a realistic $36 Per Km. Public Pledges will be starting this year.. but your support is greatly appreciated.
Help me.. so that I can forecast a concrete Departure date in Spring of 2025.. help me be a MEGAPHONE for CYCLING… and sustainability!
