Voyage of the Tinkerbelle

I enjoyed reading again about Robert Manry's transatlantic voyage in DC 236, which reminded me a while ago I read the book online. A quick search revealed it's still available here…
"Selkie", a Drake rowing boat by Clint Chase
"Scratch", a Walkabout dinghy by John Welsford
Mainly sailing and rowing on the Firth of Forth

Yes, inspiring!
There is a 2-part interview of Bob Manry on YouTube about 25 minutes total. A camera crew took a boat 250 miles out from Falmouth to interview him while he bobbed around next to their fishing boat. What a down-to-earth chap!
