Re: Sailing on network TV! "Chasing Shackleton" on tonight!
If you had to be on that boat during Shackletons time would you want to be with Shackletons crew or the Chasing Shackletons crew?
I was thinking the same thing. The chase boat has sails. And heat, room to change clothes under roof, and a better menu. But I'd still like the experience of the little boat using old equipment. So if "both" wasn't an option, I'd pick the Australis.
I HAVE a 21 foot boat with a single gas burner, one pot, and tiny cabin filled with sails and gear. If I wanted the experience I'd take it out today (sub zero temps this week gave us ice, now it's 45, windy, and raining hard - seems like that replicates the southern ocean pretty well actually)
Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
