My name is Doug Jackson. I am the ambition and drive behind SV Seeker, but my success comes from knowing a lot of brilliant and skilled people who are drawn together around the sailboat Seeker.
SV Seeker is not just a sailboat nor a yacht. SV Seeker is a work boat, a research vessel, my dream and a tool for making dreams come true. I’ve always wanted to do something grand and daring. Something that filled my passions, not just the hours of my day or a bank account. It started with building submarines, and with confidence it became building Seeker. When completed I will have every skill I need to keep her in shape, and she will have the strength to take us to see and study the wonders of the world’s oceans.
Seeker will cater to adventurers, explorers, oceanographers, divers, wreck hunters, marine biologists and archaeologist and we will do it free of charge. If you want to be a part, then allow me to welcome you aboard.
Our crew is forming now. You can join the volunteers that are helping to build Seeker. Sharpen your skills, pass your skills onto others, learn new skills, build friendships and earn your passage onto Seeker when she is plying the waters in search of a better understanding of our planet and it’s history.
Always look for the truth in life, whether in science, society, or ourselves. The objective is to complete the work at hand while living full lives and inspiring others to do the same. Always embrace flexibility, change, learning, love, compassion, and acceptance. Always have fun. If the people around you are laughing, you’re doing it right. Fear is our only enemy. The thought of doing something is always more frightening than actually doing it. LIVE.
Provide a free of charge ocean platform for students and researchers.
