I met Reid Stowe - Home

He has an amazing story.
Over 1100 days at sea never stopping at land and no resupplying.

He did a slide show in New Haven.
Not well attended. Mostly yoga people attended not many sailors.

He has done a remarkable physical and mental feat and seem genuinely perplexed as to why he can't find a publisher for his book.

Any suggestions for him.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
