How to exit a RIB at WOT

This video has been kicking around for a while, but what the hell:



A diving buddy of mine throws Bear Grylls out of his Redbay 7.4 at WOT, in my favourite cruising grounds.

It's curious, but there's a perfectly nice beach just around the corner

...and he was lucky the seas settled on his way in too () 'cos those cliffs are a real meat grinder in most weather....

Never liked that bloke - he seems to spend his whole time telling the world how good he is. He really managed to put Alan Priddy's nose out of joint when he tried to steal his thunder for crossing the Atlantic in a RIB.

Well if I'd known, I'm sure the lads could have been persuaded to chuck him a bit harder....

He's also got a fantastic Ocean Dynamics RIB (don't think it's the one he took across the atlantic...smaller IIRC) which he drives into 'town' from the island....presumably to shop at Spar?

Think Jono G and James may have delivered it /collected it for him...or something like that. Lovely bit of kit though!
