Mr. Hilton a carpenter, built the boat from scratch and had also modified a tent so they could put it over the top of the vessel overnight.Husband and wife embarked on this adventurous journey to raise funds for “Save the Children's Child Refugee Appeal.” Mrs. Hilton said, “We endured some horrific weather at times… Over the course of the 56 day journey we probably only sailed five days.”
