 A Law Unto Himself

A Law Unto Himself. "Some may have doubted Kris’s sanity when he finally sailed out of Tasmania’s Mersey River in the middle of winter bound for the Great Barrier Reef. He had no radio, electrical system or plumbing. He burned candles for light and kept his drinking water in plastic cans. On that first shakedown trip, he was plagued by vicious squalls, seasickness and self-steering failures. Kris adopted the simple tactic of “Let’s get the hell out of here!” and hand steered up to 20 hours a day."
