Florida Man - Rimas has competition

yes, yes - we need some good entertainment here again!  Heading offshore in an oversized hamster wheel - I love it.  He did do a good job with the floatation, and for mooring up probably having some extra fenders super handy (and plenty of them) is helpful?  Saves that USCG tow into the marina?

A couple of triple lattes while ashore, and we can load him up with some Idaho spuds and he should be good to go?
Oh - and a GPS tracker.  Not for safety or anything, for entertainment purposes only, right?
 

Now I am actually curious about exactly what kind of 'fund raiser' he is sailing for :)
Whoops - already answered my own question on above, and somehow I am not surprised.  Maybe he is the 'anti-Rimas' what with wanting to raise money for the Coast Guard instead of incurring and liability for the entire seafaring community?  Meanwhile I think Rimas still has a better plan, what with the upcoming marketing campaign for the Idaho spuds.  "Idaho potatoes, now with sea salt!"

"My goal is to not only raise money for homeless people, raise money for the Coast Guard, raise money for the police department, raise money for the fire department," Baluchi told the station. "They are in public service, they do it for safety and they help other people."
