A CRUISE ship would def­i­nitely be a more com­fort­able way to cross the At­lantic than the method cur­rently be­ing un­der­taken by an el­derly French­man, who is at this mo­ment float­ing in an or­ange bar­rel off the Ca­nary Is­lands.

Jean-Jac­ques Savin ( pic­tured) is hop­ing to ar­rive in the Caribbean in about three month’s time, with his un­usual ves­sel sim­ply pro­pelled by ocean cur­rents.

The ad­ven­turer has just enough room to sleep and cook, with the ply­wood tube de­signed to pro­tect him from the el­e­ments as well as po­ten­tial killer whale at­tacks.

Savin is doc­u­ment­ing the trip on Face­book, while the jour­ney is also be­ing tracked via satel­lite - CLICK HERE.
