Our Crew are the good folks, talent, entertainers, scientists, volunteers, staff, and souls that are stepping forth to make this project a reality by contributing whatever they can to the project and relief. We all have busy lives, and this is a not-for-profit venture, so while many of us may be aiming at being on board as much as we can - life gets in the way - and therefore we need a pretty large database of crew members we can call of for various relief projects, entertaining, adventures, and expeditions. Of course, there will be a group of us that takes this on as a lifestyle - living on board as permanent crew of the ships. Sometimes this will fluctuate, sometimes it will be dependable. We've got a community of talent from all walks of life ready to make this happen. We'll be posting their profiles and a brief bio for each of them as we establish this site. We're looking for all sorts of talent and volunteers this make this project a reality. Nurses, Doctors, Ecologists, Environmentalists, Activists, Historians, Artists, Entertainers, Guards, Crew ... We Need You! We need a large crew of volunteers to make this happen - we have have any number of artists, entertainers, cooks, seamstresses, Captains, cartographers, etc. As someday we'll have a fleet.

I've always been an avid Cultural Preservationist, Folklorist, and Environmentalist - with a servitude of doing my part to take care of this planet and its history in any way I can- that is my life purpose. Suffering from wanderlust - what better way than sailing the Seven Seas spreading cheer, smiles, uplifting spirit, spreading folklore, adventure, and assisting relief where disaster hits while playing the role of a Pirate - Technogypsie - Artist - Scientist. It's about making a difference. I bring to the table my expertise, my map skills, my art, science, and Technogypsie.com.

WK Blackburn   Wk Blackburn aka Aquia Seastar the Mermaid Healer and Cook I am the daughter of one of the Original Sea Lab U.S.Navy Seals and was raised in Florida on the Atlantic Coast at the Bermuda Triangle.

I have lived in several cooperatives ranging from 3 to 65 people living and working together. I am a healing artist with Massage Therapy, Thai massage Therapy, BREEMA, and WATSU studies. I am also studying sound healing, herbalism, and alternative medicines. I would love to head up the galley! And create the healing space.

    name   Jason Cummings "Moonsinger" Bard/Crew Hand Greetings my name is Jason Cummings sometimes called MOONSINGER. I am a Vagabond/gypsy at heart. I would love to be a part of the crew. I am an artist (painter sculptor love to draw, that sort of thing) a storyteller and went to school to learn to cook. Also I have studied cinematography for many years and worked as a storyboard artist for a while. Those are the things I would do for the viewing audience, I am also great with logistical work. I have extensive experience with traveling to new locations setting up shop/finding day to day resources. I am confident that I could arrive in a new city almost anywhere in the world and have basic necessities accounted for within a day (not just for myself but for others as well). I would love the opportunity to help those in need in different parts of the world. Current Port:California.     
  Quartermaster Q   Q. the Quartermaster I am an itinerant philosopher-poet, and an alien syzygial ludibrium. As Quartermaster, I will give no quarter, for change must come from within. To create the water ship, we first forge a friendship that can weather the journey from this electric dream to the hard ocean. When we left the sea, we carried her with us in our salted blood. Now we will return, and bring to her our trees in the masts of tall ships. The waves will rock us like the arms of a mother. And we will rock the waves. Current Port: Colorado Springs, Colorado.Previous Ports: None Listed.
