These guys are ignorant:

They don't know that a Modern light 21 ft light boat has not the load capacity to carry water, provisions and cruising equipment for two on a Transat, much less in a circumnavigation.

They don't know that the boat loaded that way will be as slow as an heavy boat..... and that's why they go fast

They don't know that this is not a boat designed to cross oceans

They don't know that they should not have so much fun with so little money











If somebody wishes to do the same with a bit more comfort and not much money these guys make similarly designed boats more adapted for cruising. They even have an "huge" one with 25ft
