If i had a superyacht, the tender would be much sleeker.

Thats his trans-atlantic Ocean Dynamics boat from years ago, completely different boat.

This one is a Cougar built for the North West Passage "trip" at the end of this month. Until he realised it was completely unsuitable for the task, flogged it and forked out another 400k (prob more with the Shockwave ICE) for a Zodiac Hurricane Mach II.

Damn wish I could afford to make cock ups like that

The old Ocean Dynamics RIB wasn't the trans-Atlantic one. As far as I know it was only used to go to and from the island - but having seen both of them - defo not the same boat. It was a nice boat - but it definatley wouldn't look right as a tender to a superyacht!!

The Zodiac is on loan for the expedition, and his own boat is a Ribquest, running twin 300hp Suzuki's. Nice bit of kit. Alright for some Suzuki have given the engines to him for free!!!!

so he's had an ocean dynamics that was butt ugly.

An ocean dynamics that was his old n wales island taxi

A cougar that was built for an expedition, not used, then sold

A zodiac being built for the purpose that the cougar was made for

A ribquest that is now in n wales as an island taxi

I'll take any one of them if he doesn't need them.

Think I'd rather pay for them than have to go on telly drinking my own p*ss, sleep inside a dead animal, jump into frozen lakes etc...

He gets slagged off a bit by people but fair play to him I say, he's earned his fame and fortune a lot more than some of these so called "celebs"
