Brooklyn, New York (I-Newswire) December 2, 2013 - Victor Mooney of Flushing watched his 24' custom made Brazilian rowboat, christened The Spirit of Malabo, hoisted into a Maersk Line container today at the Gateway Marina.

Mr. Mooney who has lost one brother to AIDS and has another battling the disease will rejoin his boat later this month. After some further tests in the Canary Islands, the longtime rower will make his way back to Brooklyn, some five-thousand miles later in a fourth attempt at this feat.
