SALTY SAILOR
reward item

per Episode
"I am what I am, and that's all that I am!"
~ Popeye

Clearly you're a crazy sav who's worth their salt and we're thrilled to have you join the crew!

Popeye is the kind of hero who does the best he can with what he has and he knows leafy greens are key!

The body is the foundation, the first and most important step. If we can't hoist the main and haul up that anchor we'll never get to face the sea.

You are our Popeye - our foundation - keeping us grounded and strong for the most important journey of our lives. 🌿

As a Salty Sailor you've unlocked:

MAD SCIENTIST
reward item
$5
per Episode
"Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth."
~ Einstein 

If there's one thing we've found in common among the cruisers, travelers, and dreamers we've met, it's this: All of us, are a half-a-bubble off plumb!

Not unlike Einstein, we all think a little differently, maybe even a little weird. We're slightly eccentric and we don't like to follow the rules.

It's our mind we have to thank for dreaming so big. And it's the best tool we have on this journey. But it must be sharpened and emboldened to always speak the truth. 

Like the genius of Einstein, you are our guide our light in the darkness 💡

PHENOMENAL PHILOSOPHER
reward item
$10
per Episode
"The unexamined life is not worth living." 
~ Socrates

One of the greatest philosophers of all time suggests that the ultimate wisdom is knowing oneself. 

We know for a fact that becoming boat bums required courage, not only to act but to look inside and be willing to change - or even start over!

Our spirit is our greatest strength when examined and tempered, but our biggest obstacle when taken to the extreme. 

But you lend us the strength of Socrates and give our spirits the courage to reflect, learn, grow - and keep it going! 💪

As an esteemed Phenomenal Philosopher, we hope you will enjoy:

About

Hey 😊  

Thanks for stopping by our Patreon page!



You might have noticed we're a bit non-traditional...


We aren't sailors, mechanics, or electricians. We never fished or swam in the ocean before we bought this boat. In fact, we brought zero practical skills with us to the cruising lifestyle! 

The truth is, we're out here because we both have a healthy dose of the *just bloody go for it* attitude and we're willing to do whatever it takes to live the life of our dreams. 

We are not a "Sailing Channel"

Sure, we've got a sailboat and we fancy ourselves as travelers, but the real tale is about us: just a couple of boat bums learning how to survive and thrive, living the Sea Gypsy Life.

🌎

We set out to see the world, not necessarily to sail around it. (Though that would be epic!) Instead of long-term goals, our focus is on doing our best to make today better than yesterday, and we look forward to wherever that leads. 


Don't be offended, but . . . 
We'll be living this way with or without you. 

{ HOWEVER }

There is NO WAY we could be where we are today without our incredible patrons. As our patron, you make the difference between us leaving the boat for months at a time to top-up the cruising kitty, or us being full-time, live-aboard storytellers ~ dedicated to bringing you the best possible stories.


🌠

We're passionate about living and sharing this crazy, beautiful, sea gypsy life. And by joining our crew, you make it possible for us to commit to telling our stories 24 / 7 / 365!

We are seriously grateful for the best crew, and we aim to make being part of our crew seriously worth your while.

💙💜💚

Goals
119 of 200 patrons
Holy sh!t can hardly believe we have a crew of 100 STRONG! ❤

We love you guys and it's a privilege to get to know you.

The ultimate would be getting to connect with our amazing crew face to face...

Our next goal is to attend one of those boat show things we've heard so much about - where we'd get to meet and connect with as many of you as possible! 

The number where it will be clear beyond any reasonable doubt that we should go to a boat show is 200.

(That goal will also hopefully coincide with a COVID vaccine, let's be honest, no one's going to a boat show until then)
