Re: Video Recovered from Abandoned Boat
I've met the guy on Tinkerbell and saw the boat first hand a sailing conference. He didn't take much risk, that boat was BUILT! It was as solid as an ocean buoy, and his planning was unbelievable. He was prepared for the worst and then some. A real sailor in the truest sense of the word.

I tend to agree that the fellow seemed to be very experienced...
FYI, Gary's comment was about Robert Manry, skipper of Tinkerbelle, a small vessel that made a successful passage in 1965. But you seem to be "agreeing" that Mee possessed the skills and judgement of Manry. From what I have seen, I think not, although he did have some marine credentials.
It looks like Mee's website has had no updates since 2008. I think he decided to go fight pirates instead.
