How big was the schooner?
Longest sea voyage in history(1:16)
Both in print and in the video you say he sailed a 7-foot schooner!
You should look at the size of his schooner a second time, because it’s a “70-foot boat” NOT a “7-foot boat!!!”
I can understand your on scene reporter stating into the mic that this fellow sailed his 7 foot schooner around the world in the longest sea voyage ever, because we all misspeak.
But it seems that whoever wrote the copy that accompanies the video didn’t bother to look at the video because no one could think that boat is seven feet long.
Lots of readers noticed this one. We redid the narration to correct it: GBU Editor
