    Re: Martin Creamer dies at 104

    I spent some time with Google looking for the podcast telephone interview with Marvin that FurledSails.com did back in 2008.  Most of what I found were dead links.  However, the podcast is still available at:

    http://www.digitalpodcast.com/feeds/3883-furledsails-com

    ...podcasts #143 and #144.

    I was particularly taken with Marvin's description of how he planned to hit the (relatively narrow) gap between Cape Horn and the ice of Antarctica from the first podcast.

    In the second podcast he speaks a bit more about coast-wise navigation and making landfalls.

    At the time these telephone interviews happened, Marvin would have been 92 years old.  But he was still quite articulate at that age, and quite a joy to listen to.
