I saw that boat when i was visting Paris last year.At the time they were looking for new crew.They had stories posted by the crew on a bulleitan boaed along with pictures.The stories were of terror and sea sickness mixed with claustorphobia and boredom.Not the stories to recruit new crews with.

Saw em when they passed thru Savannah before they set off the first time and had problems.

Im glad they did it, because they sure put a helluva lot of effort and backbone into gettin it done.

They deserve that record.

Good job guys.

I saw the boat inside and out when it was docked here in Jacksonville for a few days. Super high tech. Very cool. Lots of very trick touches on this thing.

Glad they finally reached their goal.
