      100%, but can we do something about the engine? It's pushing the nose into the water. If we manage to tip the exhaust nozzle (thx google), slightly upwards, it should help lift the nose up. I'm fairly confident it would help us reach up 6 mph-ish. If we go downhill with the wind in our back, maybe even 10?

      In my opinion the reason the car/boat didn't work is because the engine was too heavy for the boat thus making the boat practically sink , they would have been better off using smaller jets which distributed the weight more evenly

      would be better if you angled it so it DIDNT push the front of the vehicle into the water

    Wouldn't the suction from that jet be insane? Or is it just the exhaust end that has a ton of power?

    To be honest I'm surprised they didn't just sink at the start. I was expecting that so Richard Hammond made a good choice staying out.

    This reminds me so much of being a teenager building stuff to play with, putting my all into it getting it finished and looking good, just for it to be a complete and utter failure, lmao
    I'm talking everything from model aircraft to petrol go-karts, some help from an adult would have been nice (not these three though, clearly!) 😂

    At one point in Clarkson's Farm TV show on Amazon Prime, he opens a shop. What surprises and puzzles me is how many people show up to buy things. Is Britain really that fucked up, that you are all so desperate to get some fresh food?
    You can't just go to Tescos or whatever it is and get what you want?
    I mean....sure, it may be nice food, but the shots showed something like 200 cars trying to get into a shop the size of a one car garage, and all get stuck in the mud parking lot.
    Are people really THAT desperate in Britain?
    No, it is not credible that 200 cars appeared at the shop just to get on TV.
    Unless......are people in Britain seriously that bored, that starved for stimulation? Is it that dull, really?


    Could someone from Britain please explain this to me?

    Another scene, Clarkson goes to buy ingredients for ONE MEAL, "a ploughman's" from a shop, and it cost him over 80 pounds....I think that is about 120 American....is that normal? Seems insane. The stereotype is all British food is horrible.....is it BOTH horrible AND expensive? Why would you stay in such a shit hole, if this is true?

    Don't respond with "Oh it is also bad in other places", EXPLAIN IN DETAIL. If number one, things a really are that awful and really are that expensive, then, number two: Why Do You Stay In Britain?

    A friend went to Ireland when we were both twenty years old.
    He came back and I asked him what it was like.

    He said:
    "they do literally NOTHING......no skateboarding, no darts, no pool, no video games, no card playing, no joke telling, no dancing, no parties, no movies, nothing. No matter what age, from 14 to 80, all they do EVERY SINGLE NIGHT is sit in a pub, they never stand or do anything, never sing or dance, just sit and get drunk with a glum sullen silence. EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.~ Drunk. This was around 1989 in a major irish city.

    Around 1985 a cousin went to Britain, came back. What was it like I asked. She said only one thing: "Everything there costs five to ten times more than it costs here. Don't ever go."

    Which British Prince said, England would be fine if we could just get rid of all the dirty wogs.
    How is Clarkson so rich, and since he is very ugly, very old and a complete ASSHOLE personality, how does he have a lovely girlfriend, is she just leeching off his money?
    Is Clarkson just the Donald Trump of Britain?

    It's the angle of the jet engine, it's pushing the front of the vehicle into the water creating more drag. If it was angled slightly up I bet you could get up to a much better speed than 3....

    The rapture will happen without a doubt. The rapture will happen much sooner than many believe (less than 10 years according to all the environmental, weather signs , israel timelines etc showing ). It will happen without any warning , not one , in an instant , catching masses of people off guard just like God always does, ie the flood , sodom and gomorrah ~ a rude awakening . No one knows the exact day or hour the rapture will happen is a certainty . THE RAPTURE CAN HAPPEN NOW at ANY TIME make no mistake !! . Please awake to Christ Jesus which is the ONLY hope NOW and dont let yourself find out it IS all true later when its too late and you have been left behind in the most terrible times the earth Has Ever experienced Before and ever will...for anyone who sees this and doesnt know what to do please If you havent given your life and heart to Christ Jesus you will have REAL BIG problems way bigger than any problems you have Ever had If you are left here on earth after the Rapture . After the Rapture The USA , Worldwide , will face More evils , Inner city chaos, firearm wars etc etc ,power and water , food shortages , military invasions,mass executions (yes much blood will be required by antichrist ) etctec than it Has EVER been seen Before and you surely dont want to be Here then . We Have Time NOW to change , please seek Christ Jesus while there is still time to save ! no one knows the day or hour of the rapture ,But the rapture will start out just like any other day .....The Rapture will Take Place In the day In Broad daylight, sunny day , In an Instant FLASH without ANY warning , and there will be peoples Driver Ids, cell phones ,wallets found in various parking lots , Purses bill folds Found at work etc etc with NO explanation , and People VANISHING so No One can refute it has taken place. .
    romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. rapture ready . com

    Those not going in the rapture and left behind , who rejected Christ Jesus' Love, and those that are practicing sin will have a big nightmare when left after the rapture example woman dancing in topless bar practicing sin , will NOT go in the rapture when it happens abruptly , and many other examples of willfully practicing sin daily without change .
    matthew 25 :1-13 parable of the 10 virgins, 5 were wise 5 were foolish and payed a severe price . Acts 3:19 all unrepented sins19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
    romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Please Christ Jesus NOW with your heart while theres still time left !

    Ever since the days of Top Gear I've marvelled at all the amazing adaptions & stunts they've created over the years, driving sportscars through Romania, the Toyboater and caravan pisstakes being some of the favourites, the scariest was probably the homophobic reaction in the US southern town to Richard's 'Man Love' car.
    This water car film has to be up there with the rest, the hilarious speedometer and Jeremy's '70 is a 100' dial and the 3mph speed achieved. Yet none of that matters because what's important are the ludicrous and imaginary stunts and doing them plus the hilarious commentary from all 3 and the fade out of Captain Slow reeling off the reasons for this particularly epic failure.
    Since last December I've become a part time carer, looking after my newly widowed 85 year old mum who has colonic cancer (Europe's most common cancer) and has lost interest in doing anything and doesn't want to wake up in the morning. Last week she got her 3 offspring to sign the DNR form. She's given up and just wants to be with our Dad.
    At the days end we sit and watch her TV and one evening, on a hunch, I put on the 1st episode of Clarkson's Farm which she loved and was keen to watch more, even mastering the TV remote (something she had no previous interest in doing) and is looking forward to season 2.
    I'd like to thank the Producers, editors, the Trio and camera crews for all the memories and moments they've created to make us all laugh. Because laughter is the best ever medicine and it's free.
    The 3 of them should get an OBE or an MBE for what they've done, Captain Slow for cookery, the hamster for engineering and Jeremy for helping people to understand farming and farmers and for the 'receiving one in the nads from a sheep' clip shown in the Clarkson's Farm titles.
