Interesting video, thank you for posting!
Made me order Slocums first book 'Voyage of the Liberdadev, I did not know there was another book.

My dad and grandfather back in the 70's built a replica of the Spray. It took the 4 years to build. It was a great boat! Sadly it has gone to the great boatyard in the sky.

Re: Joshua Slocum Documentary on Youtube

A very good documentary well worth watching. I have read "Sailing Alone Around the World" several times and still learned a lot about the man.

He built, or re-built the Spray plank by plank "with a tree growing through her" (!) for $553 in 1895, according to the documentary. That equates to about $15,000 in today's money. That is hard to imagine and must have been even harder to accomplish.
