Provisions were packed into every nook and cranny of the schooner's hull, everything from rice and beans to tomato sauce, pasta, pesto, olives, chocolate, spices and about 200 pounds of parmesan cheese. Sprouts were already growing in boxes for salads.

No beer?? Bon voyage, guys.

Over the years I’ve heard many seafaring types opine that a two man crew going out like this is foolish unless the boat is controllable by one man and both are equal in their knowledge of the sea and the ship. Action breaks fast on the ocean and any lack in the seafarer’s response can be fatal in mere seconds.

In my own ignorant opinion these two people, especially him, aren’t showing enough respect for the most powerful and terrifying element on the earth.

reminds me of the Voyage of the Mimi. That retarded movie series we all watched in 6th grade science.
