I'd heard his name before - didn't realise what he was/did.

Quite a remarkable story, a little sad, but he's doing what he wants to do....

Like Willk I had heard of him but unaware of what he did and his lifestyle. Quite humbling really I wish I had his strength to do as he has done, although it is a lonely life alright just now but what happens when he becomes unable to fullfill his dream.
Hope he has many years doing what he loves

Remarkable chap and very intriguing lifestyle choice. Shame it was only 8 mins long.

I have known Frank for many years and he is an absolute Gentleman. He lives aboard his RIB out of choice and has many offers of free accommodation all of which he turns down. If you ever bump into him, say Hi, he will always pass the time of day with you Alan P

Great film, again shame it was so short.

Living on a small RIB for 20 years takes some doing.
