Couple of guys cross the Pacific on a raft made of plastic bottles.

    Great story but this is even better. They discovered it was going to take longer than the six weeks they anticipated and they were going to need more food:

    Without a backup plan, the two used a satellite phone to get in touch with Roz Savage, who was crossing the Pacific solo in a rowboat and happened to be in the same area at the time.

    Savage, who was heading from San Francisco to Hawaii, was in dire need of water after both her potable water makers broke. When the three met up, Savage got onboard the raft, Paschal speared a mahimahi and the three dined together. Before parting, the men gave Savage a water maker and she gave them some of her extra food.

    Two guys on a plastic raft meet a woman in a rowboat in the middle of the Pacific. What are the odds?

    Pretty good -- if it's a Henny Youngman bit.

    To me, a single person in a row boat is the more impressive of the two. A row boat!? Geez, you figure the odds are great a wave 25 miles from shore is going to bring that trip to an abrupt halt.
