Re: 16 Months at adrift at Sea
30 years ago I was in Guadalupe for a couple weeks in december on holiday. Two sailors were brought into the beach by a local boat. They were a mess. They were involved in a race from the Canaries to Guadalupe on frekin Hobie cats! They had turtled and tied themselves to the overturned tramps and drifted for days till the fisherman found them.
Their extremities were bloated from the exposure. Their feet would squish as they tried to walk assisted on the beach.
So what did the French do. They gave them a cigarette and some champagne!
