    True. I have never seen before. Anyway. Someone have to be the first. Never seen lapstrake alloy sailboat either. So someone have to be first there also. :-)

    But the dreams are the same.

    Sailing into the sunset, visiting those beautiful small lagoons.. ahh.

      All true

      Is the boat redesigned and calculated with regards to weight etc. or are you planning as you go along?
      Always cool to see more from a designprocess like this, so please lay out the details of the build for us if you have time!

      I always envy the people who actually manages to live by their mantra like that.

        thanks,

        its a little tricky to do precise weight calculation so we do it by the old good way. stuff in some tonns of lead and go for a test sail, then move it back and forward and look for changes.
        we know where the waterline is from drawing so in end its more or less finding the position of the ballast in the boat. It will be lead ingots of around 20-30 kg each so easy to move around.
        Total weight is around 20 tonns fully loaded.
        thats include water, diving equipment, tools, food, etc.

          Not to complain about how people should live their life. There are no norwegian volunteers involved in this project in spite of heavy marketing inside Norway. It seems such dreams are more popular for people further south in Europe.

          A little strange.

            Hi

            There are many Norwegians who build boats and sail for the sunset.
            You are a member of "Baatplassen", so you have probably seen this page:
            http://baatplassen.no/i/index.php?showtopic=63666 So far it is most about the building, but it is impressing.

            At least 40 sailboats leave Norway and go chrusing every year. Most of them head for the Caribian, the Med or circumnavigate.
            See http://www.fjordsailing.no/old/?page=2

            Many of them have the same dreams as you, even if they not join your project.

            I have chrused (and dived on the trip as well) for 2 1/2 year and enjoyed many quiet anchorages. Now we save money for at 2 years trip to the Pacific. But I do not want to join your project.

              yes. maybe thats the answer. norwegians are so rich so they prefer they own boat, which i fully understand :-)

                I don`t think zeyang meant to imply that norwegians are bad people because we don`t help on his particular project
                Anyway, I think you have pointed to a good reason why we don`t typically do projects like this - many of us aspire to do it by ourself.

                I had a short year of sailing myself a few years back, spent the better part of a year making money and preparing the boat in advance, then ended up not sailing more than a few months(instead of a year) with the boat before I chose to jump ship.. had a great trip anyways, just made me more concious on choices for the next trips

                PS: Are there really any quiet lagoons left? Maybe in the pacific or in Asia? They were really hard to come by in the Caribbean...

                  Yes, there is at least one quiet lagoon left, filled with guitarplaying beauties more or less undressed, just waiting for the first boat to arrive..

                  ... but i will not tell where :-)

                      Hi Friends,
                      here are some updates from sailing the farm collective.

                      Had a canadian girl here last 2 weeks. actually she planned to stay only one week due to her grad-courses but unfortunately she got stranded for another
                      week due to the volcanic ash stuff coming from iceland, so luckily for me at least we got more work finished up. Spent most of the last 2 weeks brushing
                      and welding up the boat inside. That was indeed a boring step, but from now on,its more fun work coming up - like putting in frames, interor, sailsewing, deck
                      etc.

                      More people are coming up here in may/june and august, but we still have space
                      available so if you are interested in joining, please drop me a line. (PS: no work in July due to holiday)

                        Sv: seglingskollektiv til Asien!

                        hi friends
                        here is a short update from sailing the farm collective in middle of june.

                        The summer is here now at last and bees are busy collecting delicious honey.
                        Plan with bees is to expand hives so we are spending some time doing queen
                        breeding. its a little more tricky than it seems at first glance, but cool to
                        do.

                        Then we have planted herbs in the garden and hopefully we will get a lot of
                        healthy vegetables by end of summer.

                        And then the most important news!! Boatbuilding goes happily forward. We are
                        working hard welding in frames into the hull. and after a lot of fiddeling we
                        are now down to bending one frame in 3 hours!! thats pretty fast when we spend
                        more than a day with the first one. Next step is deck and then interior and
                        sail-sewing. (mostly whole august on this step)

                        Then, we wish you all a happy summer. If you are interested in joining we have
                        space for august and onwards,


                        fair winds and happy summer.


                        regards
                        sailing-the-farm collective!

                            ]Dear Friends.


                            Sailing the farm tribe - Mid July 2010.

                            At last, the frames are bend into the boat and soon finished welded
                            up. That was one long and tedious work but now we are soon moving on
                            to a much more exiting stuff - laying down the deck and start work on
                            the interior - then also start to sew up the sails for the boat.

                            There have been quite a response from last time and august is pretty
                            much filled up with people coming up to help on boatbuilding and
                            farming. Somehow the romantic touch of roaming the seven seas as a
                            wannabe seagypsy seems to attract much more people than we ever
                            dreamed of, so hopefully in future we will have more boats built and a
                            real seafaring community. At least that is my wet dream!

                            Then some farming stuff. The grey cat got 4 kittens some weeks ago,
                            some very adorable small kittens. One is looking curious at the
                            boatbuilding. Queen-breeding goes forward as planned. I think we will
                            manage to more than double amount of hives this year - that is pretty
                            good. It would not have been possible without help from a swedish
                            boatbuilding girl which seems to fall in love with queenbreeding
                            despite quite a few bee-stings during summer. :-)

                            We have some beds free for september and onwards, so if you are
                            interesting in joining this uber-cool sea-gypsy tribe project, feel
                            free to contact us!


                            Peace and love from
                            Sailing-the-farm

                              Sailing the farm tribe - Mid august 2010.

                              Dear Friends.

                              Its been a busy august. 9 happy boatbuilding girls and guys have been
                              here during august and it has been quite busy. We have done quite a
                              lot of work on the boatproject and have been workingon important but
                              tedious small stuff like watertanks, coolingtank etc.

                              We are also working on finding ecovillages on different continent
                              which we will be a part of the plan when the journey begins. In short
                              we will sail between ecovillages and change crew and stock up with
                              food to reach other ecovillages on different continents. if you know
                              about some ecovillages close to sea which could be interested in
                              participate please inform us.

                              But we will try to be as selfsufficient as possible onboard and will
                              test a small scale hydrophonic solution to grow vegetables while
                              sailing with as little water usage as possible. Not easy on a boat but
                              hopefully manage to get some fresh food... (getting enough water is
                              always problem on a boat)

                              Then some farm news: We are expanding the garden to grow more tasty
                              vegetables next year. Even if the fall is coming soon we will try to
                              grow some more fast growing salads until snow is coming. Our extremely
                              slow growing tomatoes will be moved indoors and continue with help of
                              growlamp in our greenhouse. Bees are doing good and we have already
                              processed some delicous honey from this year. (pure organic stuff)

                              We have some space for late september and onwards if you are
                              interested in joining this cool sea-gypsy project. Just drop us a line.


                              Peace and love from
                              Sailing-the-farm

                              Then some pictures. (we are not always working, one picture is a bunch
                              of happy boatbuilding guys after swimming in the brrr cold lake)

                                Sailing the farm tribe - Week 34 2010.

                                Dear Friends.

                                Late august 2010. 6-7 people from europe and south america has been
                                here last weeks and we suddenly start to feel that summer is soon
                                over. It has been raining almost every day last week but thankfully
                                the boatbuilding shed is waterproof.

                                We are now working on painting the barn and fixing the roof. Not easy
                                when its 15 meter to the top, but with an expert english scaffold girl
                                this part goes forward fast. Our small garden is soon ready for
                                harvest and we have some blue and rasperry raids into the forest so we
                                will hopefully not run out of jam for the next month or so.

                                Last week the girls found out that a real boat should have a real
                                galleon figure and since one of them are an metal artist she think it
                                would be nice to cast it in aluminium. One of the other girls act as a
                                model. Sofar it looks nice in plaster, and we look forward to see how
                                real it will be in aluminium. That blue plaster stuff is amazing.

                                Thanks to everyone who sent us tips for eco villages. Hopefully some
                                will be interested in our journey and maybe even want to participate
                                in our sea gypsy project.

                                We have some space for late september and onwards if you are
                                interested in joining this cool sea-gypsy project. Just drop us a line.

                                Peace and love from
                                Sailing-the-farm
