He managed to average just over 18mph, (or whatever in knots,) on the Solent in it...

see now unless i am being completly stupid (which wont be the first time) i read in the latest Rib magazine that Mr Grylls is using "a Canadian-build Zodiac Hurricane Mach 2" to do his little trip in. Picture is taken of him infront of a Cougar R8 as well so its got just about all his previous boats covered too!!

Is the Ribquest his personal boat or is he taking a fleet to invade the northwest passage?

I'm sure that BG is a cracking chap, but I'm no fan of his presentation style or progs. IMV, it's dumbed down 'survival' with added pizazz produced for Yank consumption.

RIBase
Details here of Bear's 14-day expedition to raise awareness about global warming as he tackles Canada's infamous north-west passage in an 11m Zodiac Hurricane Mach II RIB. Powered by twin 300hp - it's not exactly eco-friendly!

Wouldn't mind going myself!

He must like his Ribs as he has just bought my sons Zodaic pro 12 at Ribex. It had only been used twice.

The guys selling it for us was Southampton Dry Stack

If it was the other way around and we were buying one of his Ribs it would have made a lot more money. Funny old world
