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.
