You might do well to try to do the trip with a tiger on board. Worked on life of pi.
I saw "Life Of Pi" for the first time a few hours ago...
One will need more than a Tiger on board. There's also the Zebra, the Orangutang, and the Spotted Hyena to consider.
One glaring omission in the Movie- that was a very Boat-Trained Tiger. Where's all the Tiger Poop? The Lifeboat didn't even have a Tiger Poop Deck.
And then, there's the assignment of personage. The Zebra and Orangutang are the two kids obviously. (Among the tools aboard, I saw neither Chainsaw nor Swede Saw. Frankly, a Tiger with a Chainsaw Paw is awesome.) To refer to one's Significant Other as a Spotted Hyena may cause trouble on a 22' Boat. Even berthed.
Next, there are Islands populated entirely by Meerkats. Avoid them.
And lastly, Marine Insurance. Get a Policy that covers any and all contingencies.
Tiger, Tiger, burning bright
On the oceans of the night
What is that on your pretty paw
Do I see a chancy Chainsaw?
When one is gifted with Zebra at Sea
Does one consume it with tangy Kimchi?
Orangutang goes rather well
With a decent Zinfandel.
Why wait for the nearest Marina
To partake of Spotted Hyena?
After that, no need for abstaining
When one still has three paws, remaining.
