Incredible 8000-Mile Voyage of Survival?

Looks like it. 16 months adrift in a fiberglass boat that drifted from Mexico to a coral atoll in the Marshall Islands, 8000 miles away, living on rainwater, handcaught fish and sea turtles...and possibly a dead companion?

Lots of questions about this story, which will take a while to be answered, because as of this writing the castaway hasn't even made it off of the coral atoll, rescue planes not being readily available.

If a book comes out of this, though, I definitely want to read it.
