I don't know what they were playing at - the 4x4 doesn't look like it was stuck and surely the car would have been better off not trying to drag a massive trailer as well???



Judging by the noises in this video maybe the 4x4 was knackered?

Does anyone else think that looks rather like Manos's cabin RIB? Or do I really need to see an optician urgently!

That is what happens when you use a Dinky toy to recover a boat.
As I have said many times: Let the tyres down to 10psi. It solves many problems. My guess is that the cabin rib trailer was stuck somehow.

I got the impression the 4x4 wasn't working. Probably the best of a bad situation, tide coming in possibly? I can smell the Seat Leon's clutch from here!
