Re: Sailing around the world on a Wrangler

Just get a long Cb antenna, leave the fox tail on the end and rig your sails to it. Simple as that. The big tires will help in the shallow parts of the trip with extra speed

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!.

Already been done, by Cubans who converted a 1950s truck and other vehicles to cross the Florida Straits. (Yes, this is true.)

Don't forget to document it with the Coast Guard and register it with the DMV before you set sail. Be careful off the Somalia coast too.

Don't forget to slip a tennis ball with a hole in it down the antenna to protect your gel coat, um... paint job.

Re: Sailing around the world on a Wrangler

Be sure and outfit it with the latest Warn winch to retrieve the best rocna/manson/mantus/bruce/danforth anchor. Mount a 50 caliber on the rollbars to keep the pirates at standoff range. Are you going with the 4 or the 6 cylinder? Auto of manual transmission? At least you don't have to worry about the best dinghy or motor for it, just drive up on the beach!!! Flexible or rigid solar? Wind gen? Water maker? Well if it's just a 3 week trip I'm sure a YJ has plenty of tankage for that. Don't forget to post a crew wanted ad here for a nubile ex-stripper playmate gymnast that can stand watch and row a few thousand miles if you can't get the Jeep to plane with the spinnaker...
