Quote from wotonito
the main character tried building new rafts to cross the ocean and the story only progresses (gets closer to the end) by means of the main character every so often while he's screwing around on the island comes up with an improvement to his ship design. Eventually leading to the main character making a ship with a compass and a map he's made of his explorations and fancy gadgets that leads to him somehow or other getting back home
Wrong story. He doesn't want to go home that badly.
But yes, there is some progress in the recent chapters, like right now.
