It's Official!

Phew! Keeping that a secret for three weeks almost killed me. Well done fella, nice RIB - health to use her! Sorry I didn't get in here quicker, but I hadda work today on account of haulin her home o'er the hills yesterday...

For those of you looking for a mint Stormforce 6.1m at sensible money - tough t1tty, she's gone. Lightly used, stored in a shed, fawned on - this was the one. He just hadda buy her. That and my Commission Cheques had been getting a bit lighter lately

As for Corryvreckan - when one passes on, the next one is named. It's not done to call the previous ladies the C word. There's only one Corryvreckan. For avid Corry spotters, note her hull numbers - RNLI stylee "11-61", making her the sixty first 11m.

So anyway - Donegaldan has a real boat in the yard and a VERY nice SR4 on the market. Orderly queue pls

TT races

Brian, Many thanks
Not sure if the TT races would be the same without the invading donegal crew on a Redbay!
Have a notion to swing by peel, see some buddies over there so you never know,
and be nice to bump into you again too.

Will knock heads with Bruce B in Esadale and see if there is a plan in the hatching :-)
Dan

Good Lord no!
