Well, I should be OK crossing oceans in a 40' cruiser with many amenities, in spite of my doubts and fear. Good job!

Yes, this one had a water maker as most of them do. But I think it packed up half way across and the guy had to fall back on a small manual unit.

He had a specially designed boat - self-righting, etc.. So it is not like you or me jump into a beach toy and start rowing mad.

But out there in the ocean alone and dependent on the wind / current / and yourself ... uhmm - adventure, big adventure.

I think it is a bit strange so many of them fancy adventurers carry so much communication equip. I say a PLB is one thing but all the talking / blogging from the middle of nowhere is simply not me. I see being out of reach one of the great benefits of offshore sailing.

He might be barking but a very impressive performance.

Except if your doubts and fears point at the possibility that the size and amenities count less than other factors.
