Thumbs up Thirty Cruising Boats (and Their Crews) Interviewed

After more than 6 months up and running, I've now interviewed 30 boats for the Interview With A Cruiser Project. That's more than 300 responses from experienced cruisers to selections from a bank of questions.

A public thank you to the first 30 boats for volunteering their time:

Annie Laurie
Billabong
Bumfuzzle
Callipygia
Carina
Cetus
Constellation
Esper
Final Straw
Hawk
Infidien
Kalaerin
Long Tall Sally
Malua
Mist
Pacific Bliss
Patron
Puff
Saga
Sereia
Shiva
Slapdash
So It Goes
Solstice
Sword
Tackless II
Taleisin
Tamure
Velella
Zia

Also a very big thank you to people who have nominated themselves or others for interviews, suggested questions, or spread the word about the project on their own blogs/sites/lists.

Even though I read each interview when it comes in and I'm formatting it, I have to admit I also look forward to seeing the "new" interview with my Monday morning coffee. Thanks everyone and please do keep suggesting people to interview.
