(CNN) -- A mysterious castaway claiming to have been lost at sea for 13 months is now safely back on land, but many questions remain about how he could have lived on his small boat for so long as it drifted across the Pacific Ocean.

The man calling himself Jose Salvador Alvarenga turned up in a heavily damaged boat on a remote coral atoll in the Marshall Islands, claiming that he had been living off fish and turtles he had caught and relying on rainwater, and sometimes his own urine, to drink.


Also, crazy @#%^ or intentional attention seeking @#%^?

Wiki don't fail me again wrote:
The Compact of Free Association with the United States gives the U.S. sole responsibility for international defense of the Marshall Islands. It allows islanders to live and work in the United States, and establishes economic and technical aid programs.

Sounds like a back-door illegal immigration scheme to me.

If he and the person he was with (who died) actually did disappear about 13 months ago like he claimed, it's probably got a nugget of truth to it.

If his wife steps forward and says she asked him to repaint the house just last month, then it's a hoax.

Both is possible.

I suppose someone could stage and carry out their own shipwreck.

The story about his young shipmate that died seems a little odd. A person that is literally starving to death refusing bird meat because it's raw seems questionable.

He looks mighty healthy to have been at sea for 13 months.

I think so too. But admittedly, my image of a person just rescued after being lost-at-sea was created in Hollywood.

I think "awfully well hydrated" is the real eyeball test failing issue.
