As per our discussions in PM SG, I don't see MYSELF as a "Sea Gypsy", and bottom line here is I think I am ALREADY stationed in one of the best spots on earth to try to ride out this storm. If it gets bad enough HERE that I would have to pack it up on a Trimaran and sail off, WHERE would I really GO? I can't imagine that anywhere there are People would be much better, I wouldn't know anyone and chances are any port you pull into the local Warlord will ask for all your preps as Tribute to remain alive and be a slave. The only real choice in that situation would be to try to find a sufficiently remote and uninhabited place to try to survive, but I am no Crocodile Dundee myself. I'm a first class shot with a rifle, but if I can;t get ammo that isn't gonna do me a whole lot of good. I suppose I could Fish up a living in some places, but I sure wouldn't want to be Robinson Crusoe, nor would I really want to be Fletcher Christian.SeaGypsy wrote:It looks like it can be done for free!!!

I have settled on a boat plan, I will keep a lid on it until it's done. Depending on the pace of economic collapse I may end up buying a cheapie in Australia. This site is the best boat site in Australia; some real bargains: [url=http://www.boatpoint.com.au/]link

Find a good boat, make it here, I will show you the best fishing holes. We will need good men of the water here, with good boats that can be junk rigged with unstayed masts of our timber. You would be a fine addition to the Tribe.
Bingo !!, I think I will draw me up some plans to do mine like this, I wonder if my wife will approve ??SeaGypsy wrote:I had one built from an old caravan built onto an old Isuzu truck; was a real beauty. For a while I thought of putting together a simple barrel and frame raft and ramp to float the motorhome; never got around to it. Easy enough to drop the tailshaft and bolt it onto a prop shaft to save on duplication of engine requirements.

i'm sure i'm not the only person who's experienced this. i wonder how long it takes to get used to it, without using chemicals like dramamine etc.
