Regarding the boat that guy built, it wasn't a bad show but it didn't go into enough depth for me. It all seemed to have been edited into quite superficial bite size chunks that failed to show the full processes involved in each of the items they were looking at.
Also honestly his habbit of calling the other chap "Boss" etc. It seemed like if you took any 5 minute segment of the show the word Boss or similar would be used over a dozen times..for some reason this REALLY annoyed me and by the end of the first episode it made me want to hurl claw hammers at kittens.
Bring back Fred Dibnah, all is forgiven!
I quite agree about the lack of detail regarding the boat build, but I don't think he was either the editor or the producer of the series, so that really had very little to do with Guy himself?
I tend to call people 'mate' partly because I'm not good a remembering names and partly habit, probably annoys some people, but that's much better than chap, 'mud (?), or worst of all for me dude!!!!
Dear old Fred wasn't everybodies 'cup of tea' either and most of his programmes were consigned to BBC2?
I still love watch Fred's programmes on Yesterday whenever they're repeated, but that's still a minority channel, where as Guy's programme was BBC1.
I'm really looking forward the 'Bike that Guy Built' series, be that with or without an engine!
