Re: 16 Months at adrift at Sea
These guys appeared to have done a nearly identical drift, albeit in a few months less time. If one was feasible, I don't see why the other is not.
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
