B'stard purchases at auction the yacht belonging to the late media tycoon and fraudster Robert Maxwell, using it to transport humanitarian aid to the war in Bosnia. On arrival, however, it transpires that there is an ulterior motive to his charity. Maxwell is still alive and hiding in Bosnia and will pay B'stard to smuggle him out on the boat. After paying a million pounds to both the warring factions for a truce B'stard decides to leave Maxwell behind and sets sail with the crate containing the money Maxwell is paying him. Once at sea however he discovers that there is no money in the crate - only Maxwell, who has duped him and left him out of pocket following the bribes he paid the Bosnians. So B'stard pushes him and the crate overboard. Written by don @ minifie-1
