Well I was wrong about someone else dragging the disruptive boat back home, but I am not so sure about why it is unbelievable for the boat to end up near Bermuda.
We have a spot at Port Annapolis if the boat needs some comfort from family members :P
It is poor form to not include a source for two reasons.

The point was the boat is well designed for what it normally does, but not well designed for crossing oceans or parts of oceans.
Kind of like how RM looked to be an awsome wicked fast dayboat, but not a winter North Atlantic...
