Again, we don't know how far he was along the Grand Line before they encountered Mihawk. A single week could easily get them incredibly far along the Grand Line and it has not been said how long Mihawk has pursued them.
The Straw Hats have sailed much of the way across the Grand Line in not much more time and with a much smaller, damaged ship and a much smaller crew to boot.
The point is the Strawhats are the protagonists. They do stuff that nobody else can do. If a really dude like Krieg (whom I consider really weak in comparison of the likes of Crocodile, Bellamy, Mihawk, Doflamingo, Kuma, Ace and Blackbeard) could cross half the Grand Line that easily and even reach the Holy Land of the world itself, Maryjoa then somehow the whole build up for the Grand Line and consiquently for the protagonists suffers a big loss in status.
Mihawk, Doflamingo, Ace or Blackbeard could probably cross the first half of the Grand Line that quick and only if they have an Eternal Pose. That a guy like Krieg would do it would be a bigger display of luck then Luffy has had alltogether in the entire series so far.
Krieg's galleon is easily twice as tall as the Baratie; would a galleon have a stock of oars fifty feet or more in length? His ship simply isn't designed to be rowed regardless of how much effort is put into it.
If the captain of the ship wants to prepare for all situations then she should have a stock of oars fifty feet lenght or more? It may not be easy to store them somewhere but if someone wants to go sure then they would be there.
It's not an issue of willpower or strength, it's an issue where it's simply not mechanically possible for them to do such a thing.
In a real world not, but in a world were people have DF abilities, ships sail on clouds, islands get knocked into the sky, a whale has a the sky painted in the inside of his stomach walls and where a huge python dances lambada with the protagonists I consider it mechanically very possible that fifty feet long oars could be used for paddling to push a galleon forward.
Aqua Laguna is a considerably different thing that an actual squall, which would have had very limited visibility. The conditions did not necessarily prevent Mihawk from sinking Krieg's ship, it simply created a condition where the galleon could slip away from him.
ThatÂ´s what IÂ´m saying. If it slipped away from him he wasnÂ´t able to hit it. He may have attacked it but due to the circumstances he couldnÂ´t hit it which means the damages on the galleon to not come from Mihawks hand.
It's also not that far away from Reverse Mountain, which may well mean that he had pursued Gin so far across East Blue that he decided to drop by the Baratie with a date before returning to the Grand Line.
DoesnÂ´t negate my point though. Not only is Reverse Mountain not far away from Baratie but it also isnÂ´t far away from the Calm Belt. DoesnÂ´t matter if Fullbody was on his way to the restaurant or to the mountain in both cases he could have intercepted Krieg coming from the Calm Belt. In fact if he intercepted him on his way to Reverse Mountain then Krieg definitely escaped through the Calm Belt because thereÂ´s no chance that Fullbody runs into Krieg close to Reverse Mountain if Krieg got out at the other part of the Red Line.
Actually, we don't know where Mirrorball Island is. That may have been a random stop on his way back home. Considering that he quickly had Django put on trial after arresting him, he must have went back on the Grand Line shortly after his visit there.
We donÂ´t know for sure but it is really really unlikely that it is on the Grand Line. Jango is not Mihawk to sail easily through the Grand Line with a small boat. The fact that he had an easy travel and that he passed Morgan and met Fullbody who were all East Blue characters so far just screams that Mirrorball Island is in East Blue. As far as the trial is concerned. That happened at the Marine HQ. ItÂ´s evident because not only to they meet Hina at that place but we also see Garp, Coby and Helmeppo in the background.
It is a title story after all, so we donÂ´t need a big elaboration to see how they sail the Grand Line. In CobyMeppoÂ´s side adventure it happened in three pages. The first page shows Garp telling them that he takes them to the HQ. The second one shows the ship sailing and the third one shows them at the HQ already.
Now if you compare that to JangoÂ´s story it is a bit shorter. It happens in two pages. The first one shows that Fullbody is taking Jango with him and the next one already shows them at the desired destination. In comparison to the CobyMeppo story the only pic that is missing is the one of a ship sailing on water.
Garps way from East Blue to the HQ was done real quick. So why couldnÂ´t FullbodyÂ´s have been done quicker? ItÂ´s not as if it is something that would require a novelization.
Actually, we don't know when they ran out of supplies. His comments suggest that he knew the situation was getting desperate, but the actual situation was far worse than he had imagined.
Plus I don't see him trying such a desperate move if he isn't well aware that Fullbody's ship was too much for Krieg's galleon to currently handle.
Well I think witnessing one guy singlehandedly sink 98% of a 50 ship strong ship, getting in a real Grand Line storm, rowing like hell to move a huge galleon and escape from monstrous Sea Kings is really enough to weaken the moral of a crew. I mean who in his right mind (except for the Strawhats who ainÂ´t normal anyway) would actually be willing to take on a Marine ship after theyÂ´ve seen hell so often in a short amount of time? I know would do anything but fight after IÂ´ve experienced all of that. GinÂ´s speech he gives Luffy about the horrors of the Grand Line shows how much a hell that experience was to him.
