  • Description

    Some prefer to cross the Atlantic in a luxury liner - others prefer a plane. But the choice of three Montrealers is a watertank. One of them, at least, thinks their chances are good.

    The watertank has been converted into a home for the three intrepid mariners - a home they think they'll have to live in for sixty days. But they're taking along food for a hundred days just in case Europe is their goal-anywhere in Europe. They have no power - except that provided by a small sail -so they hope to pick up the Gulf Stream and drift eastward
    The craft has been christened "Diogenes" - the name of the Greek philosopher said to have lived in a tub. They leave the harbour off St. John's Newfoundland, heading for the grey wild younger and quickly get a foretaste of what is to come. And so it's bon voyage for the three men in the tub - Richard Mellish, Robert Frantz and Albert Barth.
