Yes, I suppose it does if the Coasties/Coppers were desperately trying to locate a dive club from BMW to see if they had members out in a club boat and they were wasting valuable time down a blind alley..... Why the attitude? It looked like a perfectly reasonable comment to make.

I am sure when the RIB was spotted on the shore they coasties would have had there own details of the RIB which I am sure would have been a 'BWM'
and when the nob jockey at the BBC got a hold of the info they would have had a typo error

Dont think Andy was expressing attitude just a common rectificaion of a know it all post

Yes, I'm positive that the Coasties got it right and it was transposed by our Nation's finest journalists....but the point was still a reasonable one to make, in light of the fact that it was in a press release asking the public for help to identify the boat. Why do you call it a "know it all" post?

just seems some folks like to have posts on the forum that must be squeeky clean tip top spot on , no offence meant on my part

can't speak for Andys take on it but that was mine.

Anyways as long as the Rib crew are safe and well,the boat is repairable and if it was stolen the thiefs are hopefully going to be found washed up on the shore

Sorry, I didn't mean to cause any offence at the time I posted the comment there were no pictures and I was trying to help clarify details of the boat. It is clearly a bbc type error, but I believe assertaining the manufacturer of the boat was paramount to finding the owners.

regards

Alex
