Max Liberson is an RYA Yachtmaster with a passion for adventure, who started his sea career in 1976 on an old wooden trawler. In 2010 Max and a few friends sailed the ferro-cement schooner Gloria, that he had bought to serve as a house boat for the princely sum of £1500, across the Atlantic. She was not in very good condition and a lot of people doubted he would make it out of the Thames estuary let alone to the Caribbean. After enjoying the exquisite Leeward Islands and stone-broke with a dead engine, he sailed her back to Essex. This is the story of the boat they laughed at.
