This man quit his job, restored a boat and sailed around the world (VIDEO)
January 13, 2015

Filmmaker Kevin A. Fraser captures the incredible life of David Welsford—a young man from Nova Scotia who gave up his possessions and the conventional ways of life to sail around the world in pursuit of happiness, adventure and simple beauty. In the documentary, Welsford explains how he found his boat—a modest 50-year-old vessel spanning 28 feet—in a scrap heap, which he then restored to working and livable condition. After two years, Welsford set out for the first time in Puerto Rican waters and describes the emotional experience of setting out for the first time into the vast blue unknown.

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
