I seem to remember that the SAR people reckon to pick up well over half of those who ditch mid Atlantic.
Traditionally the way to die when crossing the Atlantic in a light aircraft is bad weather at a destination and not having fuel to go anywhere else. Things are better now with many more airfields in Greenland.
