    That's the missing piece of the jigsaw... they're going to eat styrofoam.

    Since styrofoam lasts forever, they'll live forever.

    Unless the Australian wildlife eats them, of course.

    They'll need to live forever if they're sailing to Seattle on a 120cms boat.....

    This boat is obviously another record attempt at the smallest sailboat to_____________________

    Who ever takes this thing off shore is not only willing to go to insane lengths for fame and possible fortune, but is probably a serious masochist as well.

    You can't even lay down in this thing unless you're a midget.

    I still maintain that 3 m is the smallest "practical" blue water boat. And I'm sure there are plenty who would argue against the practicality of even that.

    No civilised man would sail in anything under 8m, there simply isn't enough room for the G&T.
