Yup, I wonder how far this Trollpost will travel.
But it was a pretty good one. I'm in:

You will need a good inverter and an electric chainsaw. Figure consuming the 15 year old by Hawaii, and the 18 year old by Guam. After that, it's up to whomever has current custody of the chainsaw.
Oh, bring along lots of fresh water. Long Pork tends to be salty.

Re: Sail from Los Angeles to South Korea and back

A swede saw would be more practical But recrewing for the return would have to be done on sail net because Koreans wouldn't fall for anything this stupid.

One of those Macgregor 26's would probably do the trick...50 Hp and all

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.

Awesome answer and I just may adopt it for myself, when faced with these silly "can I" questions.

However, they typically want a how-to or what-to-bring or some other follow on that just isn't worth the effort, so the combined answer become, just don't.

Hahaha...
Thanks you all for delightful feedbacks.
I knew it was absurd question but asked away anyway hoping there would be a way.
I am in a process of buying 22´ sail boat and wondered if it could be possible.

For the sake of argument, If I do take lot of stops on the way and take about 6 month or more, could it be possible?
(Stopping every 4~5 days or so)

If it is, what would be a possible rout?
So sorry for dumb question but can't help my self dreaming.

Again, sorry for my ignorance.
Thanks.

Re: Sail from Los Angeles to South Korea and back

I'm sensing that you're not really interested in sailing a boat to Korea, you're interested in getting to Korea and you wonder if a small boat might be the way to do it. If this is the case, then I think one way to look at it is that it's possible in the same way that it's possible to get from Florida to Alaska on a unicycle.
