Different, younger woman, similar name. There is a documentary about Laura Dekker out there called Maidentrip.

I agree. I managed to watch the whole movie for the sailing and story, but the overall acting and 70s quality was really bad.

I stand corrected. Today we don't need any of that stuff just our cell phone and a wet finger.........no, I'm in error again, I for one will still require the sex part if nothing else

thanks for the link. Creamer sure went on a voyage. Looks like he only made a couple of stops but he did have others come and go on the trip...wonder how that was done via helicopter? I thought it interesting he decided on a steel vessel for the final trip. What scares me out there is the thought of hitting debris like a container at night. If he would have done this trip solo I would rate him up there with Slocum but he didn't so Slocum is still #1

Yeah, I'd like to see that, too. I just read the book again a couple of weeks ago.
