Folks, go take a look at the three photo's I have just posted. You will find them under "funny situations". For want of a better place to put them.
The story behind this little boat
is that it's owner motored it all the way from NZ down through the wild southern ocean to Antartica. He didn't land on Antartica itself, but he did get as far as the ice. He then turned and came home again. Nothing much has changed with the little boat
from that trip. She now has a new owner whom is a good friend of mine. He bought it from the adventurer and all that changed was the new owner ripped out all the flotaion the fellow had put in. The flotation was large infalatble bags fixed to the inside of the hull
. A fire extingusher was fitted to the bags for easy and fast inflation so as the boat woudl remain afloat no matter what happend. That's all that was done.
Everytime I see this little boat, I just shake my head
in amazment and wonder at this adventure it under took.
