One of you guys with money needs to buy this guy an old Ariel or a CD-25 or even a Cal 20...there are so many old boats more suited than that SJ24...at least give him a chance. (ok, maybe not a Cal 20..but you get the idea).

Bump. We have a trustworthy way to donate to Rimas for those who wish to (like me).

Here's the quote from over on SA with the link, or you can go over there for the whole thread:

If anyone is interested in donating to Rimas's adventure, I set up a fundly account for him.



https://fundly.com/r...round-the-world#_



Cheers!



PS..Yes this is legit and I guarantee all the funds (and more) will get to Rimas. Rimas asked me to set something up for him (even though my computer skills are probably not much better than his) I chose fundly because its easy for him to share on Facebook and easy for people to see their donations and how much has been raised.

This will be exciting to watch, but I hope he takes the time to prepare his boat properly before he heads out again.

Even on a $50 budget he could have re-rigged with galvanized wire and nicopress sleeves, filled his cockpit with a lashed down styrofoam block, and built some sort of para drogue for heaving to under bare poles.

Based upon his past record my guess is he is lacking the one item that would be required to do what you suggested, a brain.

Sorry, but there is no way on Earth to "properly" prepare a San Juan 24 for a voyage to this part of the world :-)
