When you put it like that :) I think I am quite cured now, and will not
need any more footy for a long time :-D But it sure was a good excuse
to have a few.

Thanks Alan: poor man.
143 days and six weeks of drifting after that. It suggests to me that
it is doable within a timespan of six months. Maybe there is something
wrong with Inger's calculations?
IEJ: Nothing wrong with 'my' calculations - observe only used existing
programs. But something is wrong with Alan's assumption . Same as so many
others today are making in the Vinland question. First of all you have to
accept that rowing from Massachusetts in a boat today doesn't say anything
about drifting from Massachusetts in Viking Age. Then you have to accept
that 143 days in itself is more than 4 months rowing which together with 6
weeks drifting makes 5 and a half month all in all and the rowing scenario
today say nothing about how long it would take to drift nor does it count
for the possibility and actual impact of the oars on this small boat
compared with a viking ship.
Actually never seen so stupid(!) and non-comparable situations. A modern
boat able to row 'comparable' with a viking ship with in one case 17
men....... ha ha
Also, please remind me: is Massachusetts to the north of Delmarva? I
IEJ: But south of New Hampshire. /EIJ
Jesus, the rentman. I have to hide :)
IEJ: hm hm trodde du var bra på geografi..... :-)
