The circumnavigation was 26,827 nautical miles in 329 days, of which 202 were at sea. Hillbilly landlubber Ben Gray and his two sons, constructed a long, slim, shallow draft trawler of only 55hp, and launched near their ranch in Alberta. They proceeded 2000 miles down the river systems with portages and groundings. On reaching the Arctic Ocean they turned west past Alaska, to 15 miles south of the Bering Strait, and then turned back north and east through the ice-choked Northwest Passage in 2005. From hurricanes to pirates, to being arrested, to meeting lovely people, it was An Incredible Journey.
