Alex Alley's boat Pixel Flyer, which is being used for a solo round-the-world record attempt later this year, had its hull pierced last week, prompting repairs.

But the Pixel Boat team say that repairs have now been completed, with the paintwork now to be blended back in.

The boat, which is being crowdfunded by donations, still has space for more faces and sponsors.
