A man decided it would be a good idea to set sail in his Second World War boat with just his iPad as navigation.
David Carlin, 34, didn’t last that long though because soon after, he crashed into a ferry after his wifi connection disappeared.
The 34-year-old accidentally navigated the 50ft wooden Peggotty, which did not even have a compass, into the main shipping lane of the Humber Estuary during dense fog and then crashed into a cargo ferry last May......
