We are Junk-Raft-Evolution. Husband and wife with a dream of going sailing around the world. The dream started with my(the husband's) father. He always said once he retires, he was going to sell the house, buy a boat
and go sailing around the world. Sadly he passed away 20 years ago, and never was able to live out his dream.
The dream and his memory lives on in me. And now my wife shares this dream with me. But there is one massive hurdle, there isn't any money
for the dream. With a total household income
of under $500 a month there isn't enough funds for the basics such as food
, rent and fuel
to get to work
, never mind buy or saving for a sailboat. We too could keep working till retirement
, like my father planed, but with the South-African Rand losing ground every year against the mayor currencies, our money
wouldn't be worth much by then.
So what to do. Well after looking at our option we decided to take the strange path. We're going to build our sailboat. But with no funds we can only use materials we can get for free or cheaper, in other words JUNK
So this is our project
. Build a Junk-Raft and go sail around the world.
