Loved the show and the book! I think the biggest difference is that in the show it seems that whatever they're doing - whether it's all the digging or the dumping, seems like it's part of the process of fighting the disaster. But when you read the book, it turns out almost all they did was essentially misguided or not really necessary in the end.

It's not just about time but a tiny little inflatable boat like that wouldn't have enough fuel to even make it a small portion of the way. On top of that, it would pass through the territorial waters of Turkey, where there are two serious chokepoints, the Bosporus and the Dardanelles where they would have been stopped.
