I don't think Admiral Nutjobs maturity is doing him any favours. This guy looks like he should be wearing a straitjacket and not a life jacket
Ok, well I didn't post in order to ridicule the guy, I am just sincerely curious about what.the.heck is.this? I mean, is he for real (in that he really intends to try to RTW in this thing). Or is he just a harmless delusional old character.
I can't find the link again, but apparently he has spent over $100,000 on the dinghy
and its' taken him thirty YEARS to build it. Uh, WHAT?? That think looks like it could be built in a couple of weekends with an old cast-off dingy and maybe $1000 worth of fiberglass
The boat has only been in the water
twice; the first time it capsized immediately due to being top heavy (uh duh), and the second time he ripped a hole in the bottom somehow. That is it for sea trials.
I am just really curious about this and don't want to bash him if this is something other than a nutjob crazy thing.
