The rebuild of "IMPALA"
per month
Follow the complete restoration of a superb but terribly neglected vessel portrayed in a progressive, instructional and educational manner and learn as I progress, written with images as well as short videos. The project shall begin the moment funding is sourced for the primary materials and continue to completion. Following completion, I intend sailing the vessel to Northern Madagascar, doing educational passage videos along the way and once there, to source further funding to set up a skills academy for the underprivileged youth.
Yacht Electrics
per month
Yacht Electrics will thoroughly cover all forms ofinstallation and maintenance on board with a new chapter written on a monthly basis. All patrons shall have full access to the written content and images and may request E copies via email whenever required.




per month


It's all about an old man rebuilding an old sailboat...handing on a lifetime of accumulated skills, whilst educating others on how it is done and handing on the skills to future generations. The skills shall portray re-decking, interior refitment, rewiring and plumbing, engine and gearbox overhaul, custom manufacture of components right down to upholstery, all done as educational a by the said old man! Once the project is done, you can all travel with me by following my videos out into the Indian Ocean to Northern Madagascar where I intend sourcing the funding to start a small academy to to teach skills and hand on knowledge to the young, exceptionally willing, but severely underprivileged populace...without your help it simply cannot happen!
