Please somebody tell me there is nobody daft enough to sail off shore from Dartmouth to the caribean in March with only a cell phone

This guy claims they departed with only one of their two engines in running condition. Kind of defeats the purpose of redundancy, not to mention a single
screw boat is designed to track and operate efficiently on one engine- but a twin screw needs both engines to work the way it was meant to.
Navigator or something? No no no. Either you're a navigator n the Navy

company will tell them to go take a pee off the windward rail.
