Assuming you had a good captain you would reach shore in all of them just fine. My favorite though is Dan Evans comment "I would say a submarine". good stuff.

Reading that got me wondering what the smallest boat to do a circumnavigation was. Here is what I found.

There's some people working on an 8 foot challenger to the Acrohc. I'm looking for the site (saw it a couple of years ago) but haven't had any luck yet.

Yep, that looks like the one. I remember seeing sketches at one point too. It basically looked like one of those "Around in Ten" boats, if I remember correctly. After all, in a footprint that small there isn't all that much leeway in shape or design.

Sorry no one. In a real freak storm I don't want to be in any of these toys.

You may add but not delete from the list. I know I made several assumptions, please assume thay are all new yachts and the same size.
Okay. So after fifteen minutes of thinking, what did the surveyor say - and what did you go for in the end?
