In 2016 a Florida man attempted to run from Boca Raton, FL to Bermuda in a home-made, inflatable plastic bubble. Reza Baluchi had been warned by the Coast Guard that any efforts to attempt his journey would be futile and result in severe legal and financial retribution. However, Reza’s convictions and ambition left him undeterred by such threats - he’d been waiting his whole life to do this and nothing was going to stop him. This is the story of that fateful journey as told by the man who attempted it.

Dear Reza and anyone ignorant enough to support him: He will never make it. The design of his craft, the coastal winds, and the lack of substantive propulsion makes his journey entirely impossible. His "hydropod", is a poorly thought out contraption. He cannot go fast enough to compete with ocean currents and winds that, in both attempts, pushed him Southwest rather than his intended direction Northeast. This man is obscenely ignorant and actually thinks he can do this. He thinks that he was "stopped" by the Coast guard and "impeded" in his "journey", when the truth is that he never traveled anywhere. He was carried by tidal currents until he was over near the edge of the coastal continental shelf, and was then pulled by the very OBVIOUS and WIDELY known tradewinds, and currents South. He never "traveled" anywhere under his own power. I commend his free spirit, and his want to explore but his thought process about the whole thing is lacking the most basic of commonsense. Learn how to sail, to navigate, and most importantly get someone who understands boat design to engineer your vessel. Some welded aluminum struts, basketballs and a large inflatable pool toy is going to get you to Bermuda?...Da fuq? Then the dude takes umbridge with people who had to spend in excess of $150,000 saving him because HE is incapable of understanding logic. I can only imagine the conversations the Coast Guard had about this MONUMENTALLY STUPID man.

This is bullshit. I know it didn’t cost to taxpayers that much to go rescue that man. He wasn’t even in need of rescue. Besides who gives a fuck how much it cost the taxpayers for him to go do this. Trump has millions of dollars put into a goddamn space force protecting us from nothing. People seem perfectly fine with that🙄🖕

The least you could’ve done was let the guy take his GPS and equipment out of the bubble before you sank it :(

The coast guard got a point in: it was too warm in the bubble. Which is the reason he stopped running. Sitting watching a movie on a record attempt, is kind of pathetic if you ask me. But the sinking of his property was to marginalize a tax paying citizen. I am sure they had no right to destroy his property.

Here's an idea, if the coast guard is so concerned about his well being give Reza a direct communication to your office. He reports in twice a day. Let him call in the help if he needs or wants it.

Guys remember, the USCG is obligated to rescue the guy if he gets into trouble. They don’t want him putting his rescuers at risk as well as unnecessarily wasting tax payer dollars when the inevitable happens.

Yeah last time I checked we let a man literally free fall from the edge of space, have someone tightrope walk across the fucking Grand Canyon, AND let a teenager across the Alantic ocean in a damn sailboat but apparently this is taking it too far? Sure being in a hot bubble on the ocean can be tiring, but still.

I think he needs to start smaller. Perhaps trying to bubble from Miami to Bimini in the Bahamas first, with someone in a regular boat alongside him for safety?
