Well that is a funny thing. That is the same thought many here had after looking at the video of that Irwin. Then one of the owners of the boat started posting about how everything in the cabin is secured for sea as shown in the video. They say they go from NY to FL every winter and that they do sail the boat. I'm not sure about 30' seas but they claim she is sea worthy as is. They certainly are very meticulous about the interior.
When I first stumbled upon that video and posted it here I thought no way will the owner ever see this. Small world indeed.

Re: The boy behind the gate (new book)

That's very impressive that they sail that boat and it's in that condition! However that would drive me crazy...I could never live like that. Everything in its place, yes. But that clean...not for me...but every sailor shall sail their own direction. Hmmm, can I quote me on that? LOL

Re: The boy behind the gate (new book)

Dear ShoalFinder,
Thank you so much for the purchase on Kindle. Do you realize that I now have an extra $4.75 to spend thanks to you! LOL. and please do feel to read between the lines and then ask questions. I don't think I mentioned this before but the book started out with over 2,000 pages of logbooks, personal journals, video transcriptions, radio logs, and emails to friends and family. It was quite a challenge to turn that into a book that is now getting rave reviews. all the best, and enjoy the read.
I'm going shopping and spend my $4.75!

Larry
