This guy was apparently lost at sea for 14 months or close to it. Some think its a hoax. What do you think??

I suppose it's possible. Some boats from Japan drifted to the U.S. west coast a year after the earthquake and they didn't have anyone onboard to bail water.

I don't see how he did it unless he was heavily stocked with water. It even becomes questionable where he got enough food which isn't as important as the water. The boat has no shelter on it either. did you see the pictures of him after he got a shave and a hair cut? He didn't look like someone that went through severe dehydration and malnutrition out in the open sea.

If he did do it he's more a man than I am.

I have to agree with Richard he looks to healthy to have been adrift at sea for thirteen months

From what I read he was a pretty big guy before he went adrift at sea. Like semi seriously overweight big. It is possible he survived but we may never truely know for sure. After all he was the only one on the boat. At least for most of his trip.

I don't know whether this guy is legit or not--BUT, as for his survival explanation--I know for a fact that all that is do-able--rain water & critter blood?? it worked for Natives in the desert when needed (cactus, not rain)---snake, big ass or lil lizards, spiders??? turtle & sea stuff sounds pretty gourmetish :clap: toothy

Yeah, he pushed his buddy into the ocean. Was that before or after he picked the bones clean of the meat?

I for one have some doubt about it. That is the equivalent of being in the slammer in solitary for 14 months straight. I question if I would be able to string a coherent sentence together after an experience like that, never mind look in good physical shape. Mike

I was looking at this again last night. So far everything lines up to support his claim.
