The incredible true story of two brothers on an unprecedented fifteen hundred mile, unescorted voyage across the treacherous North Atlantic Ocean in a single engine twenty foot flats boat. My brother Ralph invited me to go from North Carolina almost 700 miles to Bermuda on his own designed flats boat called the Intruder 21. The catch was that the boat was really only 21 foot long and with only two foot sides before we loaded it up with nearly 2000 pounds of gasoline, we now only had less than a foot above the waterline. We were also to go by ourselves without any type of escort. His plan was to make it to Bermuda, spend the night and return this time to New York Harbor. After topping off the original 288 gallons plus an addition 50 gallons of gas; the trip back would be about 100 miles further. That, was his plan!
