Six months after Ocean Pioneer I was lost, Ocean Pioneer II was launched from Clydeside Dockyard by Lady Penelope, who was the guest of Lord Worden. The launch was a success, but Lady Penelope told the TV Reporter that "the bottle of champagne didn't quite break with the pop she expected". Unbeknown to her Parker had switched it with a bottle of soda water, and was sat in FAB 1 with Stevens (a fellow chauffeur) drinking it!
Several guests can be seen on the gantry, including the cameraman and reporter.
