Re: Sailing on network TV! "Chasing Shackleton" on tonight!

While the chasing crew had a rescue ship close by and electrical communication with said ship and outstanding qualifications, I think the original crew would probably be better versed on sailing that boat and surviving. I was somewhat surprised that the chasing crew had some difficulity with a crimp connection to the electrical communication. I can understand the challenge of mastering 1914 technology and living conditions within a short period of time, but here there was difficulity in mastering modern technology by a group that uses it daily in their modern world. I would prefer the original crew FWIW. When is part 2 being aired?
