Another Way To Provision
By Michael

SAIL magazine Associate Editor Charles Doane keeps an interesting blog called Wavetrain. His dry humor and perspective are a pleasure and he covers "cruising sailboats and other aquatic miracles." True to his subtitle, he posted recently the fascinating video below of Haitians loading a truck onto a sailboat. I figured it must be a one-off, an incredible attempt to do something that is probably not a good idea.

But clearly my Western thinking blinded me to what is possible because once on YouTube, I found several such videos , featuring increasingly larger trucks (first a Mack dump truck, then a large box truck). It is now clear that our first order of business when we get aboard Del Viento will be to strengthen her toe rails.
