    It’s crunch time for Alexander Doba, the 70-year-old grandfather who left New Jersey 32 days ago in a kayak bound for Portugal. On Thursday night, as Doba slept in the tiny cabin of his 23-foot oceangoing kayak, the vessel’s rudder was severely damaged when it became tangled in the rigging of his sea anchor.

      - It's not good! The upper sleeve is twisted at the top of the rudder. For a proper repair there were needed: a blacksmith, a welder and an engineer. There was only an engineer, myself - Alexander Doba reports from the Atlantic
