Top Gear breaking boats

So who all seen the epic race last nice on Top Gear

The Mercedes AMG McLaren racing to Oslo, what a machine, although the offshore power boat the other 2 used was also an impressive bit of kit, cannot believe it broke though, then when they got onto the RIB the seas they were in were amazingly big for probably 2 folk not used to being on the water ha ha they were loving it none the less.

Was again in disbelief when the RIBs front tubes burst due to the seas they were in, felt gutted for the crew and the owner, hope the BBC met the cost of repairs

Clarkson and his tam yet again pulled out the stops to make a very entertaining sunday night, well for at least an hour

Was very surprised also, that the front tubes went.... Know the feeling.
The seas did not seem al that rough.
