I think this boat was built by the sailors. One of them, Quen Cultra, built Queequeg in the '60s in the same barnyard as Queequeg II (this boat) was built. They may not have considered an escape hatch
in their plans.
I found the book that chronicles his story in our local library the other day. It was on the sale
rack for fifty cents. I didn't realize who it was until I got the book home and Googled his name. I had read the story of their capsizing earlier but it didn't cross my mind. The book is signed by Cultra.
It appears the website that was tracking the current
circumnav was taken down.
