Re: 16 Months at adrift at Sea
I do not think you could keep a 24ft open boat afloat through one. Much better boats have lost that battle, with well fed crews and modern equip.
Many 20-something foot boats--power, sail, rowed--have made long ocean passages. We don't know what this boat looked like, but it's certainly theoretically possible for a 24 foot boat to make it.
