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.

So whatever eventually happened here, did he decide not to keep sailing, or did he leave, or what happened ?

What are you pretending not to know ?

"Tin Can" suffered some weld failures almost immediately after leaving the Bay on the shakedown cruise to San Diego. Mann pulled in to Santa Cruz to attempt repairs, which he was unable to complete. He then sailed the boat back to the Bay Area and back to the Napa Marina where he presumably will modify the boat in an attempt to circumnavigate again next year, or so he says.

Given the really stupid ama design... not really surprised by the weld failures. If you give a 50' ama 10:1 leverage over a 15'+ lever, what do you expect to happen.

And if that wasn't enough - lets not forget the quality of those welds :P

I thought I was a bad welder... At least I wouldn't trust my welds for something like that...
