Tin Can Almost Ready to Sail Away
David Vann has had an interesting career at sea. He has sailed 40,000 sea miles, had many misfortunes at sea, sank a 90 foot steel boat in the BVI's and is abut to shove off in an attempt to sail around the globe on a $25,000 home made steal boat. Many have called him crazy, more have said he has a death wish. One thing is for sure, the guy is determined to make a go of it. He hopes to become the first American to make it around from the west coast. You may remember last year when Ken Barnes was attempting the same when his boat rolled over near Chile and he had to be rescued far out at sea. Time will tell if David will be able to endure the rigors of this solo challenge. We at H2uh0 wish him the best of luck! Read an article about David here.
