    We're a start up social enterprise planning to build a fleet of Philip Theil inspired Escargot, Joliboats and Friend Ships to be operated in venture similar to Gruene Flotte on the Ruhr in Germany.

    We're relying on crowd funding and intially, volunteer labour to get us going but aim to provide employment for young practically minded people.

    We've chosen the the escargot for it's relative simplicity of build and operation expecting to chime with the zeitgeist of simpler living, environmental empathy and community.

    The designs have been mentioned on these boards in the past. we would welcome any advice, comments and constructive criticism to help get us afloat.
