This week's question: A couple from Colorado with little sailing experience quit their jobs and spent all their savings on a 28-foot sailboat for a trip around the world, only to sink the vessel within sight of land shortly after leaving Florida. If the couple were to write a memoir about their exceptionally short ocean adventure, what could they call the book?
