Here you go - the sight of the race boat being loaded onto a Greek lorry! It's ok though - just got invited out to Greece in June to teach them how to drive it, which means that after a couple of weeks in Mauritious on Honeymoon, I'll be off with the new wife for a week in Greece

The easiest way of getting rolling loads off an artic is to back them up to a ramp or loading bay but we didn't have one of them hence the improvisation, maybe they used that method - it's on Leros now, an island over towards Turkey.
