    Bob and Ralph took our record which we set back in 1997. We did it in a 23 ft RIB with a single Yamaha engine in 21 days beacuse that was all the time we could get off from work!!! In 2013 we are both going to race around the world in our own designed boats. Good luck to them and we look forward to having a beer withthem somewhere in the world. Alan Priddy. Team Principle
