That "tin can" has to make fellow tri-hull addicts swell with pride. Right S-Dog?

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.

How Ken Barnes managed to escape the Darwainian loop is beyond me.

I think I remember that between his hero and himself they have sunk 3 boats thus far.... maybe just two. One of the previous sinkings was a home built multi hull in the Carib, correct? Deja-stupid?

As far as natural selection goes, lets just say I've seen some really good candidates slip through the cracks unscathed.

Edit: This is no Kon-Tiki

Dictated, but not read.

The Chilean fisherman are pretty good at rescuing sailors who have gotten themselves in to massive trouble.

Believe sapper is correct about the three sunk boats between the two of them IIRC.

Sail Dog Has a great point !
The braceing is mostly wrong for the forces it may incounter .
The weak point might be the rear contact of the main strut from pontoon to the main body .
Put the plastic Jesus on the dash and go for it !

Enough of this mindless cheerleading. When will you all stop encouraging this guy?? Please put away your pom-poms and warn him that he is on a dangerous mission in a poorly designed vessel and that he does NOT have to please mommy. What kind of mindless drones are you that you would encourage him with comparisons to Darwin and sailing-gods like Barnes and Stowe!!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Not being a N.A. I'm not qualified to state that this boat will not make it to the Cape.

Not being a member of the Optimist Society I'm not pre-dispositioned towards hope, which is of course his only hope.

Not being insane I'm not qualified to comment on his apparent lack of sanity.

Being a sailor, I'm qualified to wish him the best of luck in floundering near qualified life savers.
