I think he wants to become another Flying Dutchman. But at his mentality level he may be ready for the Old folks home instead.

To Sail you have to have a strong mentality to survive and not let little things bother you. That is why you should carry spare sails and a re-pare kt for those sails. The engine? Well that is why you have sails...

He should have had storm sails on board. They may be small but will get you back to a safe harbor without endangering anyone else.
