"Little Donkey" bound for the Bay of Bengal

Our latest custom project out of the workshop is a purpose designed and built pedal powered solo boat for Grant "Axe" Rawlinson, the adventurer.

Grant is attempting to become the first person to cross the Bay of Bengal by human power. This attempted crossing is being used as a test run for his future focus on the Tasman Sea

The legs are the strongest part of the body so pedalling is a better way of propelling a boat than rowing.

We’re delighted to show you the end result, “Little Donkey'', which was handed over to Grant last month. We couldn’t be prouder of what we have built, including our in house engineering capabilities. We are also so proud to be working with Grant, one of the world's most respected adventurers.
