Small boat crosses the Atlantic

This small boat, the ‘City of Ragusa’, crossed the Atlantic in 1870, manned by her owner, Captain Buckley, Pietro di Costa – and a dog. The boat was only 20 feet long and 6 feet wide; she was rigged as a yawl, and the windmill at her stern worked a propeller. She carried 3 months’ provisions and 100 gallons of water. The crossing from Liverpool to New York was successful, and the next year they made a return crossing.
