The Tour of Comanche with Ken Read. -
Dec 26, 2014: a tour of Jim and Kristy Clark's new 100ft weapon "Comanche". Here is Ken taking us around the boat and showing Comanche in a perspective that isn't seen by most. It's a long video, one of the longest we've made, however this is because everything Ken says absolute gold. This video isn't designed to be exciting or thrilling, it is designed to document an exciting and thrilling boat. Hope you enjoy!
