Captain Kim is back at it again. But this time she’s using web 2.0 to promote her project.
Kickstarter is an awesome website I’ve written about before. Kim’s is well on her way to raising enough seed funding to produce the 2011 version of her popular Women of Maritime calendar as well as publish a new issue of Jack Tar Magazine. She’s already sold out one of the levels in her Kickstarter program but there’s still room for you.
Just in time for your Christmas shopping! Hop aboard and lend a hand!
Sponsorship opportunities still available. NO amount too small! Leave your treasure pledge below in the comments. If you don’t pay, Pirate Joy will make you walk the plank!
Bonus: Get an autographed photo of a future hall of famer!
Here’s an interesting way to market a book. I love it but not so sure about it’s effectiveness and definitely best NOT viewed by those who suffer from epilepsy.
I like the view from her office.

In Today’s Wall Street Journal (August 14, 2008 ) Robert Frank reports about a unique “nauto” design competition. Your Range Rover, nautically inspired (subscription required) (Also see, My other yacht is a Range Rover – August 12, 2008 )
Seven leading yacht designers submitted designs: Andrew Winch (based on name alone should win) Martin Francis, Terence Disdale (above), Ken Freivokh, Dickie Bannenberg, Tim Heywood (must be good because I could find their website) and Redman Whitely Dixon.
The sketches will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show next month and a winner will be chosen Sept. 25. Customers can order an actual model, for a mere €200,000 to €800,000, or nearly $300,000 to $1.2 million. While that may sound pricey, Edmiston points out that it is a bargain compared with the typical megayacht tender.
The nautically inspired Range Rovers are also fuel efficient — at least compared with megayachts.
So if you’re in Monaco next month you might want to pick up one of these “fuel efficient bargains.”
