Do you have any pictures of the boat? Or design sketches?
Or the beer you have been drinking?

Re: Need crew and help fab 120' steel outrigger sailboat

Sounds like a good man! However, that project is huge, expensive and may never see the water....such a shame. You see dreams like this in folks backyards and spare land just fade and die.

I once had a dream to build a steel yacht..woke up to realise it was easier and more cost effective to work at my own trade a few more years, save money and buy a boat.....gets you out there quicker in my experience!

Looks like he is planning to build in Mexico then sail to Thailand. It is a big project to start at the age of 70, but he is a scientist !

Escape in a sailboat
