Looking forward to that. By the count of people that talk about it, I wonder if there is enough room on the ocean for the rest of us.

I like the story of Robert Manry, who crossed the Atlantic in a 13 ft boat that he essentially made. He didn't really care who knew, wasnt trying to set a record, had never sailed on the ocean before, nor did he expect his wife and the media to meet him in England.

Of course, he was probably nuts.
