I'm a born skeptic and the length of time reported here...I just don't know. I mean, Cap't. Bligh and company, were in that longboat only 41 days with a couple of landfalls thrown in and that feat was called unbelievable.
I also wonder if cannabalism enters into this story as well. A not unheard of event whith men adrift at sea for long periods.
I agree. The story also seems to morph into an epic with each passing day.
Worse than Spam. I suspect cannibalism, too. The whole story is fishy. Fifteen days without food?
