Anarchist Yachting Documentary

December 1, 2010

From the Anarchist Yacht Clubb comes the interesting-looking documentary Hold Fast:

Moxie walks us through the history of scrappy folks who have built boats before him, back hundreds of years and then whisks us back to the present, where he is part of building the “Pestilence” on the coast of Florida. Their ragged crew of four get it ready to be ocean-faring and then hold through the Bahamas and up to Dominican Republic, faring surprise storms, deadly turns around cruise ships, fishing, and dropping their anchors manually by swimming them out. It’s an incredible voyage and numerous scenes were enough to make me squirm and feel like I was living the experience. It’s inspiring when a home-made documentary can be just as satisfying and interesting as anything Hollwood has to offer. This is a must-have.

Looks like a great example of low-road seasteading! You can buy the movie on DVD, download a torrent, or watch it on Vimeo. Here’s the trailer:
