WOW individual isolation is not a drama, it's time of self refection, and we need it.

Re: How long have you gone without seeing another human being on the water?

Some decades ago, we did not see another soul for two months and then our first contact was with three dead corpses floating in the water(Indian Ocean). Looked to be Asians in rags. Mostly chewed up. Yuck. Lots of dead folks out there floating around. You would think they would have the courtesy of sinking to the bottom. 30 years of sailing and probably as many bodies encountered.
