IWAC, you whack, we all whack for IWAC

The second interview for the Interview With A Cruiser project comes out today. It is 10 questions with the famous crew of Bumfuzzle.

If you haven't read the story of Pat & Ali's circumnavigation, boater and non-boater alike, you should.  It's a fascinating travelogue. I haven't read their subsequent travels in their VW van yet but that is on my reading list.

I won't be continuing to announce the IWAC interviews on this blog unless there is something specific that I want to pontificate about. Interviews will come out each Monday and I have three more interviews in hand with Sereia, Esper and Anne Laurie plus 5 other boats that have agreed to participate.

If you wish, you can subscribe to the interviews via that page (email, feed or twitter). If you want to help spread the word about the project on your own blog or site, you can link directly or paste the following html into a blog post or website to create a badge that links back to this page. I'm going to publicize it on cruisersforum.com today and probably sailnet the following week.

That html will create a badge that looks like this:



  1. Good job Livia. After reading their blog those were exactly the answers I expected from those two.


  2. Hi Livia,
    Thanks for checking our blog. When I have more time I intend to read more of yours. I used to be a rock climber "back in the day." Good luck on your cruise! It sounds like you have similar goals to ours, hope we'll see you out here next year.

  3. @Mike - Thanks. I have received a bunch of emails after posting on cruisersforum.

    @Mark - Enjoy and hope to see you in MX!

  4. Livia -

    Well done!

    This is turning into an important body of work!

    I'm gonna put the badge on my site.


  5. Great stuff - we are enjoying following your blog - wow 76 DTG. We looked at our first boat last weekend in the long process of determining what we want/need. 1191 DTG or so ...


  6. @Bob - thanks!
    @X - We're very excited for you too.
