Sailing Emerald Steel

LIVING THE DREAM ON A LOW BUDGET For 30 YEARS!! We gave up many of the trappings of a materialistic world in exchange for freedom from entanglements .This channel is more then just about sailing… It’s about 2 young people that fell in love and worked hard to accomplish their dream. After building our sailboat we sailed off into the sunset. 30 + years later we are still living our dream! Come sail with us! Explore exotic places and see how we made it possible. We’ve lived off the grid for the last 30 years for no more then poverty wages. We built Emerald Steel and have been living aboard and cruising most of the time since her completion in 1987. Suzie did all of the welding and Jules did all the cutting, grinding and fitting. We were 23 and 36 years old at the beginning of our project in 1985.
