This smacks of plenty of wedge, short on any kind of boating experience. Rock/Padstow is 2nd home central at £1-2m a pop. A £40k rib would be a small change purchase to some of these guys.
We get similar parties coming out of St. Mawes, tidy boats awash with wives, kids, dogs and picnic hampers. The boats get rammed up the beach, a noisy base is set-up, the teenagers then go off wakeboarding behind the 300hp monsters.
I may well be wrong on this one, but it has the hallmarks.
Headline story on ITV national news- A 51 yo Father from London and his 8yo daughter killed. Others have received life changing injuries. Just gut wrenchingly sad.
It was a Cobra with a 300 Yam, kill chord still attached.
