The Moke used was for sale a few months earlier at $5,000 in South Australia and although it looks nice was apparently already affected by rust so a few hour in salt water wouldn't have done it any favours..

Before the show went to air a picture of the Moke being loaded on the boat was sent to Tim in Tassie by a colleague.

You can follow the discussion that surrounded the episode with the Moke and the general dislike of the show at the time. The clip is can be viewed on Youtube, Top Gear Shark Moke
