Exclamation OK, so in general we all hate PWCs - but this guy has some HUGE cojones!

http://www.atlantik2002.com/ (the English site has some translation problems from the orginal Spanish, but it's readable - and the pics are pretty wild!)

This nutcase crossed the Atlantic from Spain to Miami on a jet-ski! And now he's going from Miami to New York. His support ship is a sailboat or motorsailor, so he'd sleep in this liferaft while waiting for the ship to catch up to him.

I'm not sure whether to put this into "balls bigger than a bull" or "totally nuckin' futs" category!

There was a guy who did this on the Mississippi, down to the Gulf, and down to South America. He had a Yammie 3 seater, rigged with all kinds of extra fuel, and NO support vehicle.

He said he was robbed 2 or 3 times by pirates. Yes, pirates.

I'm getting to the point where I would like to see all the PWCs try an Atlantic crossing
