It washed up in Balivanich, Isle of Benbecula, Western Isles, Scotland at 57° 28.2'N 007° 22.4'W.
We are pleased to say that object has been confirmed to be 'The Lil Boat that Could'
It was launched from near Georges Bank, Maine USA by a fishing vessel from the Portland Fish Exchange on Dec 29th, 2016, having been constructed by students in the Kennebunk High School Alternative Education program. The students teamed up with the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust and The Landing School to construct “The Little Boat That Could” which is equipped with sensors and a camera.
The 'LilBoatThatCould' has now been handed over to Mari Morrison, a school teacher from North Uist. Mari has been involved with the rescue and repair of West, one of the most famous of all miniboats that landed in Scotland in 2016. Mari is the aunt of Ru Morrison, one the leads of the US Integrated Ocean Observing Systems, who is heading to North Uist this summer.
