Two young boys from the north east of Scotland have found international fame after their toy pirate ship was found floating off the coast of Norway.
Brothers Ollie, eight, and Harry, five, initially launched their Playmobil boat into the waters off Peterhead, Aberdeenshire at the end of May.
It has since bobbed along 390 miles to Denmark then Sweden before being picked up by some surprised Norwegian officials.
The story of the toy ship and the Scottish boys who built it is now being spread throughout the Norwegian press and a special offer has come in for the boys from a very special boat about to set sail just like theirs. The Christain Raddich will be launching the boat off on its next escapade in Cape Verde where there are hopes of it reaching as far as South America.
The boys are now excitedly waiting for more updates from around the world as their pirate ship sails on.
They will be able to follow its progress with the help of the YB tracker on board.
