We've had solo crossing on small sailing vessels, rowing skiffs, and a large hamster ball (which failed), but now we have one on a paddle board! Three months and 4,500 knots from Morocco to Antigua without even stopping at the Canary Isles. Who says a paddle board is not really a boat???

Well it s not really a paddle board. It s a 20' cabin boat with paddle propulsion. And he was riding the trades so he probably got a nice push from the winds

Still Pretty long trip

By Jove, 4500 kts is indeed a rather impressive speed on a paddled vessel! I bet he's hiding a flux capacitor.

A truly amazing feat he accomplished, and even more amazing he even thought up that concept..
