Funding Drive Launched for Schooner Mermaid; Baltimore

Hello Schooner Fans,

Our funding drive on IndieGoGo has begun!  Please take a peek at our story and share the word with your sailing and schooner buddies.  We look forward to moving this boat closer to launch with each step we take. Go to and search "Schooner Mermaid" or use the URL below.

I’ve managed to get this second monthly member update email together, so I’m 2 for 2 and doing great. But then again, my boat Quintessence isn’t launched yet so self-congratulations may be a bit premature!

So here goes!
