Josh Slocum. If you recall he left home a second time, he's just not back yet.

I'm going to be the first guy to circumnavigate without telling anyone.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: Preparing to Beat Jesse martins World Record

In a little-publicized event 9-month old Spanky 'Rudderrat' Martinez completed a non-stop solo circumnavigation. This happened in 1996.

In this file photo you can see 'Rudderrat's' arrival at the dock.

Notice 'Rudderrat's' safety precautions as evidenced by his wearing of a state-of-the-art W.A.F.F.L.E.R.© suit.
