    Default Solo Transatlantic Rowing Attempt

    Looks a bit dodgy to me, but I wish him the best of luck.

    I can't help wondering if these people should be required to put down some sort of deposit on the rescue, but that's a slippery slope.

    There's a bloke lining up an attempt at Aus/NZ in a kayak. Says he's just waiting for the weather. Last one didn't make it.

    Good luck! IIRC, several rowing attempts didn't make it. Boats smashed in waves and such stuff.

    I thought this was going to be about Daniel and Centennial but I guess he has sails so rowing is auxiliary.

    solo transatlantic rowing attempt doesn't mean solo transatlantic rowing attempt with some sails and maybe an outboard motor.

    Doesn't look vastly different from any of the boats entered in the Atlantic Rowing Race.. Hywl ? fill me in here?

    "I am doing this to prove that normal people can build a boat and row it across the Atlantic.
    Is this anything a 'normal' person wants to do?
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.
