Blog Repair?

Just a quick update today. Engine installation is going well. Hoping to fire her up today! I want to thank Boatswain's Locker for giving us a great deal on the engine and Duncan McIntosh the producer of the Marina del Rey Boat Show who has offered some support in this area also.

I have had many comments on how my blog is not working well. We are making a change to that today that should take care of the problems of seeing older posts and archives. Let me know what you find!

I'm busy with media today; interviewing with The Log Newspaper, CNN and later this afternoon with an Italian journalist who writes for several major mags over there.

You can see my interview with CNN Young People Who Rock here:

I have received some very cool equipment sponsorships that I would also like to mention:

Pure Fishing has set me up for round the world fishing! I will be commenting on these babies as I go! Thanks again Bob!

Adventure Medical Kits has sent over a medical kit for my ditch bag, the bag you grab if you have to ditch the boat for the life raft. They are also sending over a medical kit for land-based travel in my various ports of call.

Panavision is sending over 4 video cameras to be mounted in the boat. I will be meeting with a few of their technical guys to set them up strategically around the boat.

MarineNav has sponsored me with their Leviathan computer system. Still working through the set up and will comment more on its capabilities later.

OK - that it all for now. Sorry to be so short but I really have to run!

Cheers,
Zac

Dear Zac,

Did you notice? You are on your way! Don't let anyone - sponsors, newscasters, well wishers, the wind - pressure you. Apologies are unnecessary because it's your trip.

An all weather fan.

I've been using blogger for about 2 years to host our cruising blog. I've found Twitter and Google Maps to be nice additions for folks following the journey from the bleachers. You can embed them into the Blogger layout, and Twitter at least is easy to update via SailMail.

[...]uh…ja, maybe not quite hey, more like 1.2192 METRES… I only raise this as I am 5ft1 and most definately not close to 2km tall! I don’t think any one would even make a bike that is big enough for someone 2.1km tall.[...]
