RIBase
Them wee red feckers are fairly leapin' out o the bushes around my gaff. They make faces in me windeys. I hear that the increasing marten population in Ireland is assisting them, as the martens prefer to eat their grey, lardy, Burberry capped cousins...

Any ways... nice vid Portnahaven I enjoyed that, thank you
Glad to hear that.
I kept looking up at the trees for a marauding pack of red squirrels looking for an unsuspecting ulsterman.

Yet another brilliant video. Do you mind me asking what size/kind of tender do you use?

Thanks

Ahem, it was borrowed from "The Boss" - 2.3m Waveline. Just a nice size to carry aboard, and pretty stable for a xl person like myself.
