Thanks for resurrecting this thread - I missed it.
I also want to know why Smack did not jump on this...
Single Handing the North Atlantic for a 4000 NM round trip in a Catalina 27
(Smack's old boat)!
... and he didn't know how to sail?
If that's not a BFS, I don't know what is...
I gotta add that without pics, it didn't happen.
