Re: Barry Perrins aka Old Sea Dog overdue on Pacific crossing

I was afraid that he may have gone overboard, suffered a major injury, died in a storm after shortening sail and the self steering kept boat plugging along with greatly reduced speed in the lighter winds after the storm passed. Glad they were able to make contact with him to ease his relatives worries.

Re: Barry Perrins aka Old Sea Dog overdue on Pacific crossing

That's good news. He should have some good tales to tell on his You Tube channel once he gets to the land of WiFi or at least some video of him complaining and looking miserable after he has run out of beer on the voyage.

Re: Barry Perrins aka Old Sea Dog overdue on Pacific crossing

I learned this via a post on the Jeanneau-Owners facebook page which his cousin Malcolm Perrins runs. Malcolm is glad there has been contact. BUT, with that said, will only be truly relieved when he sees a picture of him at a bar on land eating pizza with a pitcher of beer on table, and glass in hand!
He does have plenty of food for the stretch to get to land.

Re: Barry Perrins aka Old Sea Dog overdue on Pacific crossing

It shows you need to have food for far longer than projected voyage length.
I have a few months 'hard rations' cans of food and bags of pasta and rice... i never eat that stuff normally. They last for years in the cupboard. (not so long in the bilge... so strike that as storage as theres too much moisture there.

Re: Barry Perrins aka Old Sea Dog overdue on Pacific crossing

Mark-
I've only heard of these recently, so haven't tried any yet. But if you take a look online for "Silicone food storage bags" there are now a number of vendors making "ZipLock" bags out of a silicone material, which is supposed to be much better (impermeable) than even the brand name freezer-grade bags. Should be able to keep things dry even in the bilge, if they're as good as claimed.

Re: Barry Perrins aka Old Sea Dog overdue on Pacific crossing

It would be a bit crappy if the island had run out of beer.

And Pizza dough.




Well done to him!!!!!
