Those that love "survival" type shows...

I'd like to see Les Stroud do show on surviving a sailboat disaster. And to make it really interesting it would be a wooden sailboat. He would of course scavenge the boat for ways to survive. I guess firewood wouldn't be a problem?

He did one where they put him in a life raft and set him adrift. I think it was on last year. I found it interesting that the first life raft they threw out (that was beyond its inspection date) sank before he could get in it. The one he ended up using he had to constantly bail out.

And if I remember correctly he only "survived" for a day, or a day and a half before landing on an island or something. I think he said it was the most miserable experience of his life.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well they're half way there.....The Good Ship LolliePop AKA 1000day love-fest already got hit two weeks out. They were able to salvage a big section of the bowsprit though and continue. Now we just need to airlift KenSolo in and get the cameras rolling. Television gold!

I have a crazy friend in Mexico that has a great survival story. He was sailing a multi-hull 300nm offshore when a whale suddenly rose out of the sea and smashed down on the boat, completely removing one of the hulls. They were adrift for 3 weeks when a dolphin appeared and gave him a ride back to shore. You should hear the whole story, its hard not to bust out laughing!

Are you serious? How did the dolphin give him a ride?
