I Will Give You my Little Ship!

This is what we're going to do.
I will GIVE you my little ship the "Salvation"!
It is a good boat, needs work.
First you have to help us fix her up and then crew with us to New Zealand on a year long sailing voyage through the South Pacific.
This would represent a 2 (more or less) year commitment from the right person or people.
Once we get to The Bay of Islands, New Zealand and after say being there for 3 to six months the title of Captain and the documentation of the "Salvation" will be yours.
There will be stipulations to be sorted out and mutually agreed to.
But, basically you will have:
1) helped saved a Wooden Boat
2) Have learned about all the systems and on board procedures, navigation, sea-person-ship, boat handling from a seasoned waterman/craftsman
3) sailed the South Pacific seeing some of the most amazing places and peoples
4) then own a recently refitted and seaworthy cruising World Sailing Vessel.
Please Share this as an open offer...even as a open challenge!
This is not about money.
I recently turned a young man onto a boat that needed a good home and he started a NPO, created a web-site and a purpose...I didn't entirely agree with this...manipulation but, he was resourceful and enthusiastic.
This is a waterperson challenge, I want to hear a good story, a good mission statement and an Ocean skill set.
Again, please help me make this go...can I use the term "Viral" here???

Return to Your Boating Yarn..
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
