Is there a UK version of "America's Dumbest Criminals"?

Posting self-incriminating videos on youtube isn't going to get the MENSA recruiters knocking on your door. He just might want to hire a solicitor from here rather than represent himself.

Whilst racing out in Malta I met a Belgian who had his engines shot out by an unmarked white helicopter whilst delivering a Ring RIB with no cargo at all!

Awesome video that.

Whilst looking at it came across another video of our mate from gib - looks even more like a Crompton in this video!!!



When will these people learn - you do NOT smuggle stuff at night in bad weather - you do it in broad daylight on a bank holiday weekend!!!

codders look at the tube ends ,the searanger (4 outboards )has half round (Dshape ) in order to gain the space for 4 outboards the rib in the first video has normal tube cone ends . there are lots of different ribs used for these purposes and lots of copies of the old crompton ribs . not trying to cover for crompton but he has yet to be found guilty in court .just being pedantic

Ahh it was the bow section locker I was looking at - if anyone knows about tubes it's you!!!

I don't believe in Crompton's guilt either - I reckon they are just trumped up charges. So what if drug smugglers do use them? Rolex and Ferrari would have been in serious trouble years ago if it was a crime for crooks to use your product!!!

Crompton also supplied loads of official organisations with the same boats - I reckon they should have won a Queens award for industry!!!
