I just found this site about a successful American businessman who abandoned everything and had large 3-masted a sailing junk constructed for him in China
and went to sea on it. Here's the link: meiwenti
Dear Moderators, I hope it is okay to post this. I know the man is selling his book from the site, but I have no connection with him in any way. I was stirred to share this after looking at the photos of his junk being built -- in much the same was they have been constructed for thousands of years.
Fair winds, everyone.
