Geraint Ffunt (1946 - ?) hit the headlines in 1978 as the mastermind behind the biggest coracle ringing scandal Wales had ever seen. By taking two previously written-off coracles Ffunt would then create a new, but potentially lethal, coracle and sell it as new. This ended in tragedy in 1978 when one of Ffunt's dodgy coracles was responsible for the death of Rhodri Llang (beloved anchorman for "Criccieth Tonight" and HTV's "Mr Fondue"). Ffunt served a 12 year prison sentence and now lives as a virtual recluse in Aberdyfi.
