Looks like this is going to be a good doo whisper, should be loads of film footage to look forward to, unlike that dozy git on the Anglesey cruise who went all the way round with his headcam switched off

Just reading through the threads, would it be worth a few boats having some buckets and long sticks on board?
Anyone out on the water enjoying themselves, that get to view this event, should have to put there hand in there pockets for this great cause.

One of my colleagues at work in a moment of "levity"wanted to know if "Aquahound" will catch any aquafoxes.

I've told him he'll need to put his hand in his pocket for every one captured.

I've already secured 2 soft toy foxes to hang off the A-frame for a suitable pic. Any more foxes to make him pay more would be appreciated (only need a photo not permanent possession!).
