Snoopy Sloop: the unmanned toy boat attempting Atlantic crossing – Telegraph

It sounds like an unlikely conqueror of the Atlantic – only 4ft long, weighing just 30lbs and held together in parts by bathroom light cord.But this week a toy boat called Snoopy Sloop will follow in the wake of Transatlantic pioneers like Christopher Columbus when it attempts to become the first craft to make an unmanned crossing of the ocean.Its creator Robin Lovelock, a retired Nato scientist, has spent four years developing a craft he believes can survive the 6,000 mile journey.
