Valiente, the first recorded bluewater passage appears to have been made in an un-named "Ark" class vessel captained by some guy named "Noah". Records are scanty but it appears there were no jackstraps or other conventional safety equipment onboard and that the captain placed all his faith in divine intervention alone, deeming that sufficient.

So, perhaps Bavaria IS building a true bluewater boat, and it is just the rest of us that have gotten our thinking wrong?
