IBB doing boat test

My younger son IBB (Ingi Bjorn Bogason) 13 of age wants to test everything with engine in it, if he is a passanger he wants slowride as soon as he gets his hands on the controls the throttle doesn´t give enough power, this time he was test driving the Trans Atlantic Arctioc Expedition during their short stay in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Bogib,
That looks like Bear Grylls in the background?
Where did he call in Iceland and how long did they stay?
Tell us more. I was up in Scotland, at John O'Groats, when they called in at Scrabster harbour.

Hi Brian, Yes, it is Bear in the background, they stayed two or three nights in Reykjavik, we took the crew out on a tour in our Hummer as you can see on the enclosed photo. We did went out on their boat for a test ride and Ingi Bjorn (which means Bear in English) enjoyed himself driving and control the boat.

Hi, Paul this is a good point indeed how seriously we look on the picture it was rather mild that day actually and normally I would have been in a T- or Polo shirt, ones the temperature in Iceland rise above 5 -7 degrees on Celcius we start wearing T-shirt as that is our summer temperature although iccasionally it can raise part of the to two digit number. I am sure if I dig deep I could find some smiling photo. I like Fareham a lot I have stayed there so often I have stop counting mainly at Travel Inn, also stayed in Posthouse and the Solent Hotel and my favourite restaurant down there is Fridays. Nice town you have there.
