14 foot great white shark attacks a 16' Achilles HD SIB

It gets interesting at about 2:00, when an unprovoked (or so they say) 14 foot great white shark goes on a tearing rampage on the buoyancy tube of what looks like an Achilles SU-16.

I agree. The 'Made for Sky soundtrack' is the give-away.

A mouse chewed a hole in my Plastimo Raid270. Completely unprovoked.

Personally I'd still be nervous in the boat !! Awesome predator, top of the food chain.

Maybe you could sell them the story. They will add a bit of history on the plague and other events that the mice have tried to destroy civilisation as we know it.

My story is better anyway since the mouse got killed and the boat got fixed. I don't want anyone to think I set it up by rubbing cheese on the side though.

You killed the mouse!!!! You bas***d! One of god's creatures. Couldn't you have used some kind of naturally decomposing, organically constructed, humane and blessed mouse huggers?!

Was type of cheese was it? Mmmm might go well with my red wine!
