Re: Circumnavigation without instruments
not even a timepiece? Wow. Did he use popsicle sticks to make a crude sextant and latitude-sail?
I'm impressed. did he have electricity? radio? those aren't instruments.
He did have a radio and a gas stove. He kept an hour glass on the boat so there would be no arguement over things like night watch. He did not have a sextant, compass, watch etc.
