Row Row Row Your Boat

A french woman is looking to become the first woman to row across the North Atlantic in both directions. Having learned much from her first trip, she is setting out in a custom single person row boat that includes GPS, radio, solar power, desalinator and a sealed cabin just big enough for her to lie down in. While her craft and preparations seem necessary for the task at hand, it seems as though on some levels rowing a 1300 lb boat would be more difficult than a lesser vessel.
