Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

We are fighting against basic ignorance about longevity at sea. John Glennie survived on the East side of New Zealand with three crew mates for 119 days. He says he would have made it a lot longer. There is a lot of rain in the spring in the Tasman, plus plenty of fish to catch. I don't want to imply survival is easy, but it is feasible.
