You mean like Jessica Watson on her S&S 34 Vs Abby Sunderland on her Open 40?Very big, very complicated boat. I remember another old timer recently trying to do the same thing, in another big and complicated boat, only to turn around and go back due to various failures and injuries. But I wish him all the best!
If I had his money I would go on a simple, well made boat, like a Morris 36 Justine. Simplicity and conservative design just can't be beat.
Not sure what your point is about the Green endeavor? BTW, it's not like Dodge Morgan was on a tight budget...Hope he makes it this time, but takes one day longer than Dodge Morgan did...
And I'm sorry, but the notion that an epoxy boat costing close to $3 million represents a "COMPLETELY GREEN" endeavor - simply because he's not burning any fuel underway - is laughable...
He is well on his way, so no problems yet.Oh yes, it IS the same old dude...
He has grit, I give him that, but he does not seem to be learning from his lessons. He has another grossly over-contraptionalized boat that is definitely going to be a handful for him to handle in a blow. And again, no shake-down sea trial for his boat.
