Melrna,

Thanks for posting the log here. It made an interesting read for many of us Monday morning quarterbacks.
It sounds as though your friend is hoping that someone will find his boat still floating off the coast of Europe in a few months. I hope that this will happen.
I still kick myself for allowing myself to be talked into doing a maiden voyage and delivery with a friends boat with no shake down sail. Fortunately for us our trip was a short coastal hop of 50 nm and we easily endured.
As is often said: "If it is going to happen, it will happen out there."
Lots of other good lessons here that you have already identified.
