  2. I use a Hot rodded Necchi BU Nova with a Consew servo motor and a large weighted Sailrite handwheel.
  3. In the past as soon as he is on land he switches to FB and posts from the Delorme stop. If he's stuck on a reef than its a different story.

  5. Noooo. Solo sailing around the world. World record book.. Alaska was just a distraction.
  6. Using a handheld VHF with a range of maybe 5 mi?
  7. He's a professional indigent, feckless halfwit. Been doing it his whole life. He won't work, can't sail, won't lift a finger but he's impressively good at grifting and managing his staff of enablers.
