Aleutian 70, Global Surveyor

World tested cruising comfort, hurricane tested steel strength.

EBOOK - All I Ask is a Tall Ship
The Ebook "All I Ask is a Tall Ship" is now available at Amazon.

Book I want to sail my family of six around the World. Like Joshua Slocum a century before, I am a Sea Captain without a vessel. Sailing is sometimes cold, wet and frightening. Can I design and build a vessel that is comfortable and likely to survive a hurricane or hitting an abandoned container, sail efficiently and cost only a quarter of the price of something similar?

This is the detailed story of my design choices and how I built and circumnavigated my vessel. For those interested it includes the technical detail along with the experiences of 50 years as a professional mariner.



It is for those who might wish to follow, or those that just love to dream.
