hi,
still some problem with the weldingmachine so i took the weekend off and need to think of a solution.

I usually close the door and go away in weekends. working on the boat 7 days a week will make me just crazy so need some time off. .
So this weekend i will go and look at some other boat projects.. (did i say singletrack mind) :-) Especially curious about the interior of an original 100 year old colin archer.


anyway.
here is a picture through the prop app. a cool view.

Will get 2 girls here next week helping me. One has been here a few times before and is really interested in boatbuilding. .

we are working on bending the frames now, but also working on bees and planting stuff in the garden. The framing of the boat goes forward, albeit a little slow.

snippets from the newsletter. if you want to receive this twice a month to keep track of this cool collective, send me your email! -> zeyang(at)laowai.no



hi friends
here is a short update from sailing the farm collective in middle of june.

The summer is here now at last and bees are busy collecting delicious honey.
Plan with bees is to expand hives so we are spending some time doing queen
breeding. its a little more tricky than it seems at first glance, but cool to
do.

Then we have planted herbs in the garden and hopefully we will get a lot of
healthy vegetables by end of summer.

And then the most important news!! Boatbuilding goes happily forward. We are
working hard welding in frames into the hull. and after a lot of fiddeling we
are now down to bending one frame in 3 hours!! thats pretty fast when we spend
more than a day with the first one. Next step is deck and then interior and
sail-sewing. (mostly whole august on this step)

Then, we wish you all a happy summer. If you are interested in joining we have
space for august and onwards,


fair winds and happy summer.


regards
sailing-the-farm collective!

its a community sailing project (kind of sea gypsy collective) this boat is not going home again. it will sail the world forever with likeminded people who love to travel the world in an environmentally good way.

you are free to apply for space onboard for different legs around the world :-)

Dear Friends.


Sailing the farm tribe - Mid July 2010.

At last, the frames are bend into the boat and soon finished welded
up. That was one long and tedious work but now we are soon moving on
to a much more exiting stuff - laying down the deck and start work on
the interior - then also start to sew up the sails for the boat.

There have been quite a response from last time and august is pretty
much filled up with people coming up to help on boatbuilding and
farming. Somehow the romantic touch of roaming the seven seas as a
wannabe seagypsy seems to attract much more people than we ever
dreamed of, so hopefully in future we will have more boats built and a
real seafaring community. At least that is my wet dream!

Then some farming stuff. The grey cat got 4 kittens some weeks ago,
some very adorable small kittens. One is looking curious at the
boatbuilding. Queen-breeding goes forward as planned. I think we will
manage to more than double amount of hives this year - that is pretty
good. It would not have been possible without help from a swedish
boatbuilding girl which seems to fall in love with queenbreeding
despite quite a few bee-stings during summer. :-)

We have some beds free for september and onwards, so if you are
interesting in joining this uber-cool sea-gypsy tribe project, feel
free to contact us!


Peace and love from
Sailing-the-farm

Sailing the farm tribe - Mid august 2010.

Dear Friends.

Its been a busy august. 9 happy boatbuilding girls and guys have been
here during august and it has been quite busy. We have done quite a
lot of work on the boatproject and have been workingon important but
tedious small stuff like watertanks, coolingtank etc.

We are also working on finding ecovillages on different continent
which we will be a part of the plan when the journey begins. In short
we will sail between ecovillages and change crew and stock up with
food to reach other ecovillages on different continents. if you know
about some ecovillages close to sea which could be interested in
participate please inform us.

But we will try to be as selfsufficient as possible onboard and will
test a small scale hydrophonic solution to grow vegetables while
sailing with as little water usage as possible. Not easy on a boat but
hopefully manage to get some fresh food... (getting enough water is
always problem on a boat)

Then some farm news: We are expanding the garden to grow more tasty
vegetables next year. Even if the fall is coming soon we will try to
grow some more fast growing salads until snow is coming. Our extremely
slow growing tomatoes will be moved indoors and continue with help of
growlamp in our greenhouse. Bees are doing good and we have already
processed some delicous honey from this year. (pure organic stuff)

We have some space for late september and onwards if you are
interested in joining this cool sea-gypsy project. Just drop us a line.


Peace and love from
Sailing-the-farm

Then some pictures. (we are not always working, one picture is a bunch
of happy boatbuilding guys after swimming in the brrr cold lake)

Sailing the farm tribe - Week 34 2010.

Dear Friends.

Late august 2010. 6-7 people from europe and south america has been
here last weeks and we suddenly start to feel that summer is soon
over. It has been raining almost every day last week but thankfully
the boatbuilding shed is waterproof.

We are now working on painting the barn and fixing the roof. Not easy
when its 15 meter to the top, but with an expert english scaffold girl
this part goes forward fast. Our small garden is soon ready for
harvest and we have some blue and rasperry raids into the forest so we
will hopefully not run out of jam for the next month or so.

Last week the girls found out that a real boat should have a real
galleon figure and since one of them are an metal artist she think it
would be nice to cast it in aluminium. One of the other girls act as a
model. Sofar it looks nice in plaster, and we look forward to see how
real it will be in aluminium. That blue plaster stuff is amazing.

Thanks to everyone who sent us tips for eco villages. Hopefully some
will be interested in our journey and maybe even want to participate
in our sea gypsy project.

We have some space for late september and onwards if you are
interested in joining this cool sea-gypsy project. Just drop us a line.

Peace and love from
Sailing-the-farm

Pictures from last week: James and Jane Bond with license to screw,
Miss plasterface (Our female galleon model) and our metal artist
posing outside the boat.

This must be the coolest project Ive heard of in a long time. Is there any website where its possible to follow your adventures? Assuming that all space onboard are occupied for a long time to come? =)

Sailing the farm tribe - Week 36 2010.

Dear Friends.

Early september 2010. Summer is for sure over. We have had the first
day with below 0 degrees now and harvest is around the corner. We
have had people from UK, Argentina, Australia(!), US, Germany, Spain
and Sweden here last days.

Farm-news:

The bees will be fed sugar next week, so for sure they know that the
summer is over, and we have been picking/harvest lots and lots of
berries and some hunded kilo of organic broccoli. Any tips how to eat
broccoli in different ways is very welcome. Cooked, baked, raw.. you
name it - we will try it!

We are still working on the painting the barn/fixing the roof and will
continue this for the next weeks, also expand the garden for next year
harvest and will try different kind of seeds which is planted in
autumn.


Boatbuilding news.

The gallion figure goes forward as normal. This is not an easy
task. Problem is more about how to make it look natural and still
protected below the bowsprit without beeing crushed in some harbour.
Since its so close to the winter season we prioritize harvest and
painting but will be back to more welding and boatbuilding by early
october.

If you want to join our cool sea gypsy tribe, please contact us.

Pictures from last weeks:

Watching the stars. The gallion figure with head and body. Jumping of
the straw-bale and how many can sit on a strawbale-contest 2010.

Peace and love from
Sailing-the-farm tribe.

Sailing the farm tribe - Week 38 2010.

Dear wannabe sea-gypsies.

Late september 2010. We have been working on feeding the bees with
sugar, working on the barn and put seeds into the soil during last 2
weeks. Its also been raining a lot. Season is at the end for the bees
and they can happily hibernate (kind of) until spring again. Since its
so close until snow is coming we prioritize everything which have to
be done outside now. Hopefully will be back on boatbuilding by
october.

Thanks for many cool broccoli receipes. we try to have broccoli every
day. Not because its so healthy (which it is) but more because we have
so much of it! Only stuff we havent try yet is broccoli cake!

If you want to join our cool sea gypsy tribe, please contact us.

Pictures from last weeks:


Have no horse!, Feeding the steam-boiler to heat up sugar for bees, 3
birds on the barn-roof (which is 15 meter up). gallion-figure in clay.


Peace and love from
Sailing-the-farm tribe.
