From the pics available on-line, that's pretty-much the same sort of boat.

Supposedly he sheltered during the day in a box normally used to hold the catch. One would presume, being a fishing boat, he had plenty of fishing gear so, assuming he didn't encounter any storms (possible in those lattitudes) it's theoretically possible.

Maybe time passes really quickly in South America??

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
