Blue Marlin = Spearfished = 327 kg
Can anyone shed some light on the Spear Gun used in this picture?

You can buy these cannons, look at the site below.

Riffe is the company, look at the mid handled series.

I have his mobile number.

Tommy designed the gun and Anton de Kok made them.

If you ask Rabitech ( Louis Hatting ) he may be able to get the guns.
