A boat built by two children has been floating on the high seas for over a year and has not sunk, despite covering thousands of kilometers.
Children usually ride small boats in a pool or swimming pool, but two brothers from Scotland built a beautiful pirate boat, which their parents participated in.
Harry and Oli Ferguson’s weight was balanced in this boat so that they could swim in strong waves. In addition, polystyrene foam is applied everywhere inside the deck of the boat so that the boat has the strength to bounce. Despite all these changes, no one believed that this boat would continue to float in the deep seas like this.
The boat was launched off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland, after which it entered international waters in May last year and was spotted by several ships. The boat arrived in Mauritania from Scotland on November 8, 2017 and is now passing through the South American Sea of Guyana.
The boat, dubbed ‘Adventure’, first arrived in Denmark from Scotland and then to Sweden and Norway. Someone there handed him back to the water because there was a message written in the boat that whoever saw him would drop him back into the sea.
It then proceeded again from Norway, with a GPS tracker mounted on it, which also has a state-of-the-art waterproof transmitter.
A Facebook page has also been created for the boat, in which the history and pictures of its voyage can be seen. Until a few days ago, it did not report, but suddenly its transmitter started working again and now it is somewhere in the South American seas.
