I think you're reading too much into that.

I'd love to see what the crew member will be posting on her Facebook page about this trip. I bet she kissed the ground when she stepped ashore.

If memory serves me, it was quite common in the old days, before things like bleach, for the water to become foul after about a month. Given time the bugs would die off and the water would again be drinkable.
Water has microbes in it who continue to multiply while the water is in the container. They eventually die off. You just can't drink the water till they do.

Even for someone with vast experience that certainly is a very large undertaking. I can't imagine it.

Atlantic Delivery

I'm very happy to hear Boatie and his crew are safely tied up. Well done Atoll and JP! Kudos to the owner too.

Sleep well Boatman!
