I believe its just a 'toy' for him - no serious expedition in mind
... saw it in Ribquest before final delivery - Scott seats , self righting bag, radar, etc etc etc. Very nice build
Looked huge on the trailer - lucky boy !

He was in abersoch this week end, mate got a picture with him. It's his boat for his island "st tudwalls" hence the badging below the name on the console.

He's owned one of the Tuds for at least 6 years and used to have a serious looking Ocean Dynamics (I think) as his taxi out to and from the island. When we first came down to Pwllheli with our boat 6 years ago, they used to use the trailer for his RIB to pull my Ribcraft out - so he's had it that long at least.

Seemed like a nice bloke on both occasions I spoke to him - not like some of the press would have you believe...!!

Bought in 2001 for 95k, previously uninhabited for years. No beach. No facilities with automated lighthouse and two derelict cottages he's knocked in to one.

Author of the liver birds owns the other island.

If I had Bears money I would make sure I bought an Island with a pub on it.
