I wonder if this happened before or during the acident?

The bloke in the back ground is looking up the hill, do you think they have tried to launch it one slope too soon or maybe it was a really low tide

Nah. Des

He is just waiting for a P22 to be drop tested for comparison.

What "thin" trailing arm? The rear radius arms as they should be called are still the same part number as they have always been - never managed to bend one on some serious rocks never mind curbs!!!

Whoops another mate of my at a different supplier has told me that yes they are now different - see I ALWAYS admit when I am wrong!!!

However he said that they have never had to replace one and they are just as strong as the old ones. It is not the sort of part that gets replaced very often - and they are a huge parts supplier!

This is not the first LR the coastguard has destroyed. They reversed one off an 80 foot cliff some years ago, in the dark. For the non believers, the 2 occupants survived and the vehicle was susequently rebuilt and drives today (not by HMCG I may add!)
