Hi, my name is Garrett Jolly. My wife Ruth and I are in the process of building the boat of our dreams. She will be a 35 ft wooden gaff rigged ketch.We have been sailing, restoring, and living aboard boats together since we were 18. We are now 23, and over the past 5 years we have developed a passion for traditional wooden boats. After living, sailing, and working on numerous boats we came to the conclusion that the only way to get the boat of our dreams was to build it.  We are well into the project now and hope to raise money to help keep up with the costs of materials and outfitting the boat. You can follow along with the progress on our blog at  https://saltandtar.wordpress.com

We've made our goal!

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

I post another $5.00 donation just to remind you to consider supporting these kids. Your $5-20 dollar donation would make a world of difference. Garrett and Ruth are making amazing headway or progress on their dream. Please consider a small donation...it makes a world of difference. Thanks, Captain Ron
