Build, Sail, Live.


Two Guys


One Crazy Dream.


We are building a 38’ sailboat from stump to ship, once completed she will take us around the world. We hope to inspire and educate as many people as possible along the way. Join us on our journey and let us show you that with a bit of dedication, good company and some old school smarts even the wildest of dreams can be made to come true!


How can you follow along?

We believe that this is going to be one hell of a journey.  Because of this, we have decided that we need to record it as we go, for ourselves as much as for you. We will therefore be putting out videos on a regular basis showing our progress. Please follow along and join us! You can subscribe to our channel on YouTube to be notified once a video is released (every other Friday). 

Is it possible to help support this project?

Yes, the best way is through Patreon!  We are currently independently funded via our two full time jobs.  As proud as we are of this, it makes it very difficult to dedicate the required amount of time we need to the build as well as to produce videos to share with you. Financial support via Patreon would allow us to work full time on the project and roll out more and better content for you! 

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a site that was created to help support artists and creators by connecting them to fans wanting to support their work. When you become a Patron, you can decide to contribute a certain amount of money per creation (in our case, videos). You have complete control over how much you decide to donate per month and can set a cap on your monthly donations.  Not only do you get to help support a project you love, but you receive a reward depending on the amount you decide to donate!  To check out our Patreon page CLICK HERE.


If a man is to be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most.

We are looking to do short videos of us answer questions our community may have about the project.  Send us a short video of yourself asking a question and we may feature it in our Q and A segment planned to be released every other week.  A short video recorded on your cellphone/small digicam/computer and sent to us would be ideal (try to make sure you keep the orientation in the horizontal mode to fit the videos).

You can send your submission to:

We are looking forward to hearing from you all soon!

Open House and Birthday Extravaganza!

Our annual open house is coming up!  We plan on doing one of these every year around this time.  The first one last year was amazing!  Lots of good food and good people.  All are welcome, including kids.  Bring your own drinks and maybe a dish to share.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at

We hope to see you all soon!

Every donation will help us get that much closer to building Arabella.  It will also allow us to more easily put out videos for you to follow along.  Thank you all for your support!
