6 - no, 12! - Months In A Leaky Boat?


Read this amazing story of fishermen who went adrift after their motors failed (with no radio aboard) - and floated some five thousand miles away - to be found a year later!!

Kinda makes you think- these folks lived for a year - no job, no electricity, no Internet. Caught a few birds and fish, drank rainwater. How much do we really need to survive?

Yeah, but was there a tiger in the boat?

The AP has picked up the story:

It sounds fishy to me.
