Wilk - I'm a relative newbie on here and clearly have a heck of a lot to learn but can I ask what your connection is with Redbay, if any?

You're a staunch advocate for them and their product in any event!

Regular visitor, biscuit guzzler, boat borrower and I'm quietly stealing a RIB one piece at a time from them

I wouldn't bother stealing any other make!

P.S. They are Trade Members on here and flew the RIBnet Burgee on the Round Ireland boat, so JK lets me blether away about them...

Ah, so you're their Bank Manager.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I've not met him yet. Met their Solicitor once or twice, but we're all cool again now

Perfect for the St Kilda run.
Thought of there when the launch video was released, think it was also mentioned by someone.. at that time!

You aren't so late. I got recalled to HQ this March for "Reprogramming" - too long a leash it seems...

So yes indeed - St. Kilda it is. She is well along and towering above donegaldan who was up to leave Deep Six in for servicing. There were a few other nice hulls taking shape on the main floor, the Lough Neagh Fisheries jet boat is an eyecatcher in grey and the latest Bouncer (12m) is shaping up nicely with twin Yanmar 370s. I'll be back to collect Deep Six in a couple of weeks, so more then. Plz excuse the Ribeye in the last pic - it's OK 'cos it's actually a splash

I think if you are lucky enough to have owned a redbay then you feel lucky.

Ours is an older 2002 boat and we love it, very strong and most importantly great hull and balance.

We feel very lucky to have found one at such great value and a big plus redbay still offer good customer service, nothing's too much trouble

don't all builders offer the same good service that Redbay provide
