Yes, I know the boat in the movie was based on Satori... the crew is often the weak link. There was a couple pulled off of a catamaran off of Mexico last year. The man designed the catamaran, and his boat was found floating, working as a sea bird colony, a few months later. AFAIK, it is still afloat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
