It's true

True story, the guy did it alone. Another delivery , Captain Frank Rains delivered a GB to Hawaii, I think it was a 53. Boarded up the windows, bladder tanks or barrels I can't remember, it was a miserable trip in beam sea conditions. Guy's have survived in open boats further in those latitudes. But why, it seems the fuel would eat up whatever profit could be made on the sale of the boat. The trip would be risky and miserable in a hard chined boat. Sounds like the makings of another epic sea rescue.
