A Biski of cause, he loves amphibious things to get in and out of the sea, off the beach he's spent a life time at it and probably spent more on it than he's spent on Vincents.

Remember the Amanda testers wore lounge suits, collar and tie. And kept their feet dry.
Whilst in the publicity film for the Amanda they were powered (?) around Ruislip Lido by girls from London's Windmill Theatre in scanty swimming costumes. For those unfamiliar with Ruislip Lido it is not a swimming pool but a large and picturesque reservoir in Middlesex created as a feeder for the Grand Union Canal.
