RIB Goodwin - around Britain by Avon Searider

Fabulous spirit. Not so sure about the Honda choice, but it's frugal at least. Part 1.

Seemed a bit "kamikaze" to me... and I'm not a stranger to adventure.

Agree, just admirable spirit in the age of the snowflake though - reminds me of those ads of besuited 'gentlemen' testing boats and outboards you see on Pathe footage. Even the wooly jumpers are in evidence here...Past experience means I'd have zipped myself into an immersion suit and had a 2 man life raft, spare props and a bucket load of pyrotechnics bought long before setting out.

Looking forward to the next installment

Maybe your man's strategy is to pick up essential items as he goes along and the need arises. Flares and a prop. required at the end of the first leg, being an example. Perhaps the Searider will be like Trigger's broom by the time the journey ends. Bravo to the chap though - looking forward to the next episodes. Marvellous stuff.
