Your goat had better secure funding soon. I hear that there is a sheep in New Zealand that has secured a major sponsor for her bid to be the youngest ruminant to circumnavigate alone. If she succeeds she'll have effectivelly rendered similar attempts by cows, llamas and yes, goats, as irrelevent. All that'll remain will be to circumnavigate for the mere enjoyment of it. The boat is an Open 60 named "Shear This".

"Billy Boat"
"Knot Kidding"
"Just Kidding"
"Udder Foolish"
"Feta Me Knot"
"Who Cut The Feta"

As to the goat having to worry about someone taking advantage of him, he should be happy not a sheep.

This is the best topic we have had in a while.

How rude!

That's one lippy goat! How much power does it consume in the standby mode?

Ours consumed all the power (chewed through the mains). Fried in the process. I never expected grilled goat to be so delicious!

How rude!

Goats On Board stickers

Amazing how quickly Hollywood has picked up on your idea DOJ

As usual they have screwed it up, but I do see some anti-piracy value in marketing G.O.B. stickers to the other 2 legged cruisers

Goat Bouy. Listen, I'm really worried about his single-hoofing. He cant possibly keep a legal watch schedule. I can send him a copy of the COLREGS, if he'll promise not to eat it...

this has goat to be stopped!

Its not humane in fact utterly goatesque.
Not only has this goat never singled hoofed a boat the goat has zero sea time. The goat will not be mature enough to handle the stresses of solitude and the dangers that abound. I am forming a non profit to stop this expedition. If you would like to help by contributing money I promise I wll use the donations for expenses to stop this silliness. Of course I have just quit my job so I can put all my efforts into this and as such will recieve a modest salary. Please visit my web page as soon as I have got it going at www. stopthe goat.com
