Very interesting link. You know what? I think this boat was too reliant on electric
and electronic items. Did you see the guy freak when his electronics
were out? I mean sure, being rolled would have sucked, but he was oddly freaked out by his electronics
How many times did he get rolled? 4? Wow. Must have SUCKED, as he said.
This one is so much more interesting because we can see what happened. If he had a manual bilge pump
in there, I think he could have made it all the way with the boat. It was surpisingly resiliant. Good argument for a small boat. I'd hate to see my behemoth roll... it's not set up for it right now. Stuff would be everywhere. Dorades would allow water
Also, he didn't appear very seasick. He was doing well from that standpoint. Very surprised at that also.
Solo trips in bad weather
seem horrible. Nobody to talk it out with. Your own mind is probably your worst enemy.
Did he mention that the "conquest" was over?
If I hear that right, we all know you can't conquer the sea. It will always win.
Give me a competent crew over a solo passage
