Craig, I like "DAUNTLESS AWARD" as it can be bestowed for different types of cruising, but would have to be an outstanding accomplishment. I envision that there would be few of those. We have some intrepid cruisers, and they deserve to be set apart from ordinary. Richard has raised the bar.

Just plain "Dauntless" works best.

I like "Dauntless" but I'm not crossing any oceans in anything less than 50', if it's a trawler. Name this after the guy who did it and see who can match his feat.

This isn't a really, really big deal in a sailboat, about 80 or 90 do the puddle jump every year. A trawler this size is a very different animal and this takes some major cojones, planning and luck. And a good boat made to do it.

Greetings,
Ocean crosser is quite apt for Richard BUT as I mentioned previously What about those who DON'T cross oceans but make epic voyages all the same. I mentioned a passage from Australia to Tasmania (only 150 miles but open ocean) or a run to Bermuda (some 700 miles). Neither cross oceans as such but are indeed serious passages. How about a simple "Seafarer"?

Don't forget "Dauntless NW Passage".

Do you think there will be a "Dauntless Okeechobee"?

Ha! You forgot Dauntless River Crosser and Dauntless Creek Paddler. Can I get a Dauntless Puddle Jumper? Where does it end?

If you cross an ocean, you're a Dauntless Ocean Crosser. If you don't cross an ocean, you're not. Seems unambiguously defined, appropriately limited to the accomplishment and rarely deserved.

But that's just me...

Absolutely -- and a Dauntless Award could be designated for any number of accomplishments out of the ordinary. I like it best.

"What do you folks think of "Dauntless Ocean Crosser"?"

IMO it's all to wordy and a little pretentious.

Why not something simple like a special symbol below their avatar or name? Or several different symbols denoting different crossings or long cruises like doing the full loop. You could add hash marks if some one has done it more than once.

Well, given the text report from Richard this morning, I have to agree with you wholeheartedly. I think Richard probably feels as though he in a battle with the elements, and I bet he doesn't give a darn about mincing words.

But I bet people that go to sea that ALSO get shot at may want the word "warrior" more reserved for the appropriate group and I'm sure Richard would respect that too.

Dictionary.com

Warrior
noun
1. a person engaged or experienced in warfare; soldier.
2. a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics.

Warrior has never been a term exclusive to the military. Your suggestion that they would "giggle" might get a greater response from them.

Well we have diluted the term hero down to where it's almost meaningless, might as well whittle away at "warrior" now too.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the forum...
I submit once again the possible recognition of Richard Bost as a recipient of the "The Dauntless Award".
I feel that his courage, planning and resolve merit the name offered- and it embodies the Vessel and the Journey which he is about to complete.

Start a poll, "don't mention it again", or "let's just go ahead and do it" are all possibilities here. Thank you for considering it.
I yield the floor....
