Nice video. I wish them well. I just know that if Paul and I were on a boat non-stop for 1000 days, it would go one of two ways. Two go out one comes back or Two go out and three (or more) com back.

So, if you have the necessary resources and the drive to do it, why not?
Best of luck to them.

There didn't seem to be any wind vane steering on the boat. 1000 days is a long time for two people to share watches if they are hand steering.

It's not a matter of "what I'd do" or "what you'd do". It's a matter of what they want to do. Our only judgement could be "are they reasonably able to attempt it?" Seems to me that he's an accomplished blue water sailor, so good on 'em.

Hey Bote.. I agreed with you...!!!!!

He once had vane steering but found he didn't need it. He balances the boat with the sails, then loops a little cord over the wheel. I think he said he sailed a couple of weeks in the Caribbean without touching the wheel once.

Hey Bote.. I agreed with you...!!!!!

Jamie, please don't confuse me with those whose every quoted response is an arguement. I realize that you agree, but didn't feel like retyping or rewording what you had to say, only expand on it.
To have a conversation does not require a difference of opinion. More is accomplished when both sides agree at the get go and expand on the ideas they both hold.:)

She made it 306 days.
Was airlifted off today complaining of chronic and severe seasickness.

I don't get it. That's a long time to spend voluntarily cut off from the rest of the human race. I guess I enjoy the company of other people more than they do.

Do you suppose they have some kind of garden plot on board? That boat seems big enough to have a little greenhouse of some kind. 1000 days in a row without any fresh tomatoes, just canned ones, would kill me.
