#Offshore - Offshore vessels around the Caribbean are being asked to watch out for a toy ship on the waves that’s in need of a recharge.
As BBC News reports, the appeal comes from a family in Scotland that launched the specially adapted Playmobil pirate ship, dubbed Adventure, from Peterhead in Aberdeenshire last summer.
Since then, the little plastic boat has travelled with the currents to Scandinavia in the northeast, and then thousands of miles southwest to Guyana in South America.
MacNeill Ferguson and his sons Ollie and Harry have been following Adventure’s progress via a battery-powered tracker they embedded in the ship as it was prepped to better handle ocean-going conditions.
But with the battery now drained by three-quarters, the Fergusons are urging any vessels in the area where the tracker shows its heading — and a popular spot for many Irish offshore yachts — to fish it out for a much-needed recharge.
