Round and round and round he goes...

A boatman trying to navigate around the southern coast of England got confused and ended up circling a much smaller island at the mouth of the Thames River.  Relying on a roadmap, the motorboat pilot kept circling 36-square-mile Sheppey Island until he ran out of fuel and ran aground, requiring a rescue.  Apparently he didn't notice how the coast of England looked exactly the same every 21 miles.
