Much enjoyed !
What would have added to the excitement was to have shown pictures of the boat at the beginning instead of the appendix (and in colour) - would have been closer to the action !
Would have been nice for the trip to have not been a race so they could have stopped and soaked in the surrounding sea life more, and what the ocean environment was more like !
Congrats on a tale that is part of you forever...
