FIFYI attended a talk by the Pardey's many years ago. After the talk, a friend of mine started to tell Larry about his plans for his second Atlantic circuit on his Pearson 365. Larry cut him off and questioned whether a Pearson 365 was suitable for such a trip. I will always regret that I didn't blurt out what I was thinking: "Yeah, right! An antique engineless, biodegradable 30-footer is the only type of boat suitable for crossing the Atlantic."
