Building Our Dream Boat
Now to take it to the next level. GoFundMe earnings go straight into the boat where as some of our Patreon income gets split into camera and computer gear to keep Salt & Tar running. Rediviva is entering her final stages of the build. Still to go are the rigging, interior, deck hardware, and final bits to finish the engine install! We already have our masts, wood supply for the interior is well stocked, and we are gaining pieces of the deck hardware as we find them or they find us. We raised our goal by $12,000 which will make a significant impact on the remaining materials we need like galvanized cable for the rig, sail cloth, anchor chain, ports, and the kitchen sink ;)
Thank you to everyone who has helped raise the funds to complete this girl. We started this campaign in 2015 and welcoming this new year, 2019, we've finally reached that first goal of $18,000. No way am I adding up how much we've spent to build Rediviva thus far (hint: it's more than that) but we are so much closer to the finish line than when we started! Thank you.
You are so wonderful! I've followed you since the first movie on YouTube. I have had the same passion, but then I built a farm instead. Now, when I follow you, I want to get a little younger so I can restart a new adventure like yours .. So many hugs and puffs, from me to you. Love from me! Stefan Johansson Sweden
