Yes, it must be the same boat. It appears to now have better seating and radar.

I think you mean Kyran Bracken's parents.

And if you're going to namedrop, you shouldn't forget Derek Warwick who's just around the corner, Alan Whicker just over the hill and of course Mr & Mrs Erin just up the road .
