One problem you're going to have is most boats will not have the space to stow two bicycles for a trans-Atlantic passage.

Also, most east-bound passages happen fairly early, during the spring, before hurricane season starts. June is the start of the hurricane season and far fewer boats will be heading across the pond to Europe then.

Again, very few boats will be crossing the Atlantic for the United States in August, because that is the near the center of the Atlantic Hurricane season.

Finally, you shouldn't spam the forums by posting the EXACT SAME THREAD MULTIPLE TIMES.

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.
