I remember them lowering the rib off the crane and not Gavin's a bow line taught. It went side on and rolled with crew aboard. Doh!

A couple of swift observations ;

- ) what a crap name for good looking boat
- ) nice boat trashed again by this set up
- ) isn't a supposedly wave piercing design

I should think taking a mig welder to that fibreglass boat is about all we can expect from their crew!

Also i remember looking on sea shepherds website to see that the Japanese are going to stop whaling as it's no longer profitable?
Fronts fell off, hulls fell off, crews fell off, nice shiny gearboxes fell off, trying to use their Delta as a bucket to scoop arctic water for no special reason, come to think of it the list is long and distinguished. Pretty sure any ' ambassador' will fall off and/or will be eaten by the crew at some stage;-) I saw some picture not so long ago with the 2 Humbers Oceanpro's used by HMS and Co on this arctic challenge thingy, standing on the deck one of their vessels?

But to be fair, most of our popular American trash TV shows seem to be based on UK shows, either rewritten or reproduced.

Unfortunately after watching many episodes I now realize that my 7 year old does a better job as a rib captain than most of the people who are allowed to dry the Sea Shepard ribs.

And as far as the moron tearing up the verado goes, all I can say is good riddance to that motor.
