My suggestion is go sailing if you want to go sailing as a family or go do mission work if your called to do mission work. There is nothing wrong in going on vacation for a year with the family, every day is a gift, rejoice in it.

Re: Christian family of 4 Taking a Year off - Can we crew?

Seems like a pretty tough challenge. First of all the fact that you are a religious family doesn't or at least shouldn't give you any advantage to finding a boat to crew on in fact it may be a disadvantage. As others have said finding a boat with a family of 4 is in itself an almost unheard of proposition especially with children.
At best you may find an opportunity if "you" paid to get on a boat doing a passage, good luck.

Their Blog has been scrapped. It was a free GoDaddy site, so as tempory as their floating pile of envirnmentally unsafe timber.

Love the way those that try to 'help' others just screw it up.

Welcome aboard Shirley,

A boat big enough to carry two families is uncommon. However it sounds like you may mean you travel somewhere and then meet someone to sail with locally in that area, not necessarily to sail to that place. That will have more options and more opportunities. I would also guess that it is good to check with your church about missions they have currently ongoing first and then see if they are in a location likely to have cruisers visiting. Best of luck to you in your plans! Those are two lucky kids!

Shirley--

Try reaching out to Dia Gratia. You may have a bit in common with the Dia Gratia crew.

NO poster is obligated to make a post on anything. Whatever we write is only our opinion. Better to say nothing than to leave an indelible record of our prejudices.

I dont like Kale. I dont like it so much I dont comment on it at all.

Now how does that work with anchors or catamarans ?

I have a deep love for all boats. My affections are firmly rooted in Catamarans. When prejudice arises regarding multihulls, I recognise that a mans mind changed against his will is a man of the same opinion still... Some people with no experience do not want to like them so I dont see the point in antagonising the situation. If I am involved in a conversation I will merely state my opinion or experience and leave it at that....If Im not involved, I tend to not get involved... a waste of time.

Life is..

Not sure of your context here, but that seems a very dangerous oversimplification at best.

The fact that there are truths that exist (for our universe at any rate) is the primary basis for civilization (for good or bad) as we know it.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary (empirical) evidence. Otherwise they should be subject to all forms of criticism, satire and humor not excluded...

Whatever it is.... be nice about it.
