    Jeez.

    Ah, if the Atlantic only extends as far as the horizon (since the Earth is flat) then 200 miles out is beyond the "middle"!

    Have they found out where the gentleman is from yet?
    Or even where the boat is from?
    Does anyone know the name of the boat?

    The story said that, according to paperwork on board, the boat belonged to a Welshman living in Gib. (But cannot confirm if it was the owner who was on board).

    No idea about the boat name.

    Easier just to say "someone pro-Brexit".
