Agree. I think several things brought him a lot of pointless criticism. Mainly I think he was a bit too alternative or new age for a lot of sailors. Then he was picked on because he wasn't "really sailing or going anywhere" but kind of hanging out or going in circles a lot of the time.

Mainly cause he's a few sandwiches shot of a picnic. Left with his child bride with basic plans to go nowhere but just hang out. She was or got pregnant and had serious problems with sea sickness, at least that was her excuse for getting off the boat. He continued to sail around, possibly just drift, for another couple of years in the mid south Atlantic IIRC.

And his child bride( by the way was of legal age) was waiting for him with his child. Standing behind him with his family for his major accomplishment

I'm all about younger women but this doesn't seem quite right. I report, you decide.

Re: Can you Live off the Bounty of the Sea?

Is that the "Bounty of the Sea"?

It can't be done. There is no booze in the sea.
