Cam, I think you might want to read her story again. She set off in a partially unseaworthy boat w/o any other sailing experience, except for a tall ship. Ken Barnes had been sailing for years prior to leaving! I don't see how sailing to South America for a first voyage is a discrete trip? If you just go read both of their stories you will see i am right. Ken's boat was unseaworthy as well...someone told him it was okay to cut off the bilge keels!!!!!! That was the main issue here that cannot be overlooked. If he had not removed them his boat would have been much more stable!!!! I think you just have issues with Ken I bet if KB had finished his trip like Donna, you guys would be writing about how cool HE is!!!
