Stillraining—

Mr. Barnes's boat was 47' LOA and the Tin Can is 50' LOA, and Reid's boat is 60' or so, with only Heather's Flicka being what I would call a small boat...

However, I'd point out that Donna Lange's boat was only 28' LOA, and she did finish her circumnavigation, unlike Barnes or Vann.

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.
