Re: Preparing to Beat Jesse martins World Record

In a little-publicized event 9-month old Spanky 'Rudderrat' Martinez completed a non-stop solo circumnavigation. This happened in 1996.

In this file photo you can see 'Rudderrat's' arrival at the dock.

Notice 'Rudderrat's' safety precautions as evidenced by his wearing of a state-of-the-art W.A.F.F.L.E.R.© suit.
