Re: Adrift: 76 Days Lost At Sea

I read the book when it came out. He almost didn't make it, at one point on his chart/journal he wrote "near death".

What kept him alive were his two water stills. And the fish he caught, dried, and ate.

The book was graphic enough for me. I watched the video til 2:28 when he wraps the jibsheet around the winch counterclockwise. Technical advisor!!
