I met a couple of hippee brothers in Anchorage Ak mid 70's that were already accomplished sailors at the ripe old age of 28.They were building a concrete hull in their back yard and at that time melting car barriers for lead ballast.I remember all the rebar and chicken wire.I was only 18 or 19 at the time.They said there was good sailing from Anchorage to Fiji on account of the tradewinds and currents.

well I'm glad to see you got it back together. last time I saw you you had no rig on that craft. you were under power, we were under Sail. and you nearly drove that rock over our 22-footer coming into quartermaster Harbor. if you're going to be chartering that thing, you may want to pay attention to your rules of the road captain. while I appreciate your creative genius, many passengers may look at it as" ghetto trash", or "Ratty" as in the Harley rat bikes. most of all pay attention you'll impress No One by running down another craft!

Amazing ship! I never heard of concrete hulls before, but it looks like it works just fine. I'd probably rather sail this than those modern super-expensive yachts with electric winches, auto-pilot, radar, gps maps and all those gadgets which, in the end, ruin all the fun! What's the point in sailing if you're just going to sit down and play on your cellphone?

When I was a kid, back in 1968 or so, I helped build a few ferrocement boats in a yard in Oakland, CA. I call it a yard but it was really little more than a dirt lot on the Alameda estuary . . . just a bunch of hippies living the dream . . . and one engineer. The quality of the build varied tremendously depending on the builder, the engineer had the best one. Everyone, without exception was building with the intention of sailing around the world. Very few did, heck very few even finished their boats. I'm really glad to see that someone not only finished their boat but still sails it! Good job and happy sailing.

I see this as an actual documentary very well done on what I imagine is a very low budget, quite an accomplishment! I like how Eddie took something from nothing and made it happen by his own ingeniousness. What's also amazing to me, never been on a sailing boat, are people who know sea navigation as I heard you have to know ocean currents and how they effect navigation too. I love sailing ships like this and how beautiful it looks gliding across the sea! What great adventures ahead and also a way he can do random acts of kindness and open the amazing world of sailing and the sea to others and enjoy a whole adventurous years ahead! Thanks for sharing this! Also, I feel Eddie could talk about motivation, inner peace, creativity, and also as an inventor what innovation means to him and how all of that is working in his life. Sounds like a fascinating person with a lot to share with the world! Thanks for creating this fine documentary!

I remember people building fero-cement boats in the 60's and 70's.  There were 2 of them that were built in my town back then.  I have no idea if they worked well, all I know is they were being worked on for a couple years and then they were gone.  Different owners, different parts of town, but I bet they new each other because those things are so big everyone driving by can see that you're building a fero-cement boat.

Dude, I am so proud of you. You did it! All of us hippie dreamers had our visions. I owned seven boats in my younger days. Around the boatyards was my venue. I was the guy without the motor trying to tack out of the sound. Key West, Cocoanut Grove, Sarasota. But somewhere along the line I got a clear message to turn my back on that hippie vision. And I met this gal, (a sailor, or course) and we had seven children, and now there are twelve grandchildren, and I am landlocked in West Virginia. (No regrets) Around here there are the river rats. But they have no idea about heading for the horizon. You go, dude, I with you in spirit.

What a dream. My life's dream, actually. To live on a ship like that. How wonderful. It's so great to see that there are people out there doing it. Great inspiration. And what a beautiful ship.

Was it necessary to reference this guy as a "pirate?" Maybe you should meet some pirate and see how cool they are.

Thank you Capt Eddie. I'm in the middle of an extensive refit on a 54' ketch. All the things I'm being told I "have to" replace is making my head spin. But today, I'm gonna be Drake-ish, I'm gonna just start... Thank you.

Hey Dylan! My friend Alexis Koome (IG @koomebaya) is an amazing poet, with a beautiful blue bus! And a wicked good story ;) She is currently up on Haida Gwaii..a magical place I have yet to check out myself. Thanks for everything you do, I am so inspired and now beginning my own van journey.

Great work Dylan, great video, awesome videos, good subject matter. This one hit home as it's in my neighborhood and I'm a life long sailing nut. You got my sub. . I would not take this boat to sea, but it is fine for S. Puget Sound...The skipper is a hoot. Awesome highly entertaining video.

IF your going to be doing tours you need to get the vessel permitted for commercial use, which might be quite difficult w/ a home-made vessel. EVEN if it is in all respects very, very seaworthy and stable. Coast Guard can be very picky and articulate about any minor reason which might make your vessel ineligible for a commercial use permit. There are a lot more rules when it comes to commercial permits than just if you own your own vessel and boat around in it.

Dylan, your stories and video directing, editing skills are superb. This looks every bit the quality of a story on National Geographic. If I were you I would try to get National Geographic to air this story on their Tv show. You could make a lot of money doing this man. Who knows, they may even hire you for occasional work making and producing stories. It's definitely worth a try.

May you have many blessings and with much inner peace. ✌

Every guy I ever dated in high school had a dad or older brother who dressed like that :D I am a water person, born and bred in San Diego on the beach. If I could live on the water, I would. I envy and admire him. Thank you again for a beautiful video! My heart soared with the drone on this one <3

you could try hiring up on a cargo sailing vessel like Tress Hombress, Nordlys, Grayhound, Avontuur, Kwai, Ceiba,Brigantes, Cecilie, The Spirite of Rotterdam and many more.

Ceiba is currently beeing build in Costa Rica and is intended to sail the Pacific Line from Costra Rica up to Canada and Back down past Hawaii.
or you could become a Shareholder of a CSV, Ceiba sells their shares for 100 USD to enable a larger audience to purchase them. The other Shares are usally at around 1000€ ( Avonture, Nordly) 1250€ Tress Hombress and 3000€ for the Massiv Clipper 'The Spirite of Rotterdam'

I came back from doing just that two months ago, on a three mast gaff schooner, from The Netherlands to the Carribean and back. They were the best six months of my life. We had less space per person than is legal for a prisoner, the night watches were cold and sometimes we couldn't shower for weeks, but I was the happiest I've ever been. If you have had it at the back of your mind for a while, just do it. You won't regret it, I promise. I'm definitely not going to be finished with the ocean anytime soon.
