Sounds really Dumb to Me

First, let me say I do know something about offshore sailing. It's a serious business -- and this guy Frucci sounds crazy. He seems to have little experience doing an Atlantic crossing single handed -- he should gain more practice before such a foolish journey. The number one problem is human error... Furthermore, anyone who knows anything about offshore sailing would laugh at the huge solar panel he has in the picture -- it will blow off fast. I trust it's down below for this trip. Finally, he should get a new, expensive boat with all the latest safety features -- his life depends upon it. An older boat is more likely to suffer a mechanical failure like a broken mast, rudder, etc. Metal fatigues over time... That's why commercial airlines typically have newer planes... BTW, his GPS tracker shows he never left port this morning -- what gives?
