1/. One of those crappy Ospreys.

2/. North Wales answer to Seastart. Mr. GED doing what he does everytime he goes out. Towing a breakdown through the swellies.

3/.Proper boat.

Jesus, Not the best place to break down. Lucky GED was there. (If he had run out of fuel though...i would have left him and filmed him hit the rocks at 6 knots. No excuse.)
