I just love culture jamming and lying.

Jake? You have some splainin' to do!

(Somebody posted this earlier and it flew right by me at the time. Seems relevant.)
I posted that link, I was familiar with The Yes Men before and when I tracked "Jake" back to them I chuckled a bit.

But in this case I don't think "Jake" was organizing some kind of prank. They tend to take on governments and mega-corps, and I don't think a low-rent sushi stall really fits that bill.

I think he just likes to sail and took an opening on the only Transpac boat willing to take crew without experience. And since he's the sort that hangs out with videographers and just generally tapes everything, why not get some good video of departure and arrival?

I really would like to see his videos from during the trip though... Jake, come back to us! Post video!
