AdamLein will become famous soon enough
his motor boat ran out of fuel while repeatedly circling a small island in the River Thames estuary...

he ended simply doing laps of the 36-square mile Isle of Sheppey
One wonders: how many laps did he do? Half the trip is on a creek about 300 feet wide, and passes under two bridges.

Isle of Sheppey

Why didn't he just stop off at "Ireland" to pick up fuel?
