So on that note - the company that purchased Bryn Teg wanted her converted from her extremely luxurious wood interior c/w heads/shower and galley to a pure crew transport vessel. To that end, Redbay have stripped her and are refitting her for this purpose...

Are they new 315's and anyone know if the reliability of the bravo 3 (X drive now days) is vastly improved over what it was, especially with 315 6LP's... I'm assuming it is as redbay are fitting !!

Can you tell what the two pipes are that go to the outdrives they look like they are to push water over the drives?

A special request for Islay. Two of the Operators there want them as they do all their own maintenance/repair work. I've no idea about the reliability.

Yes, those are leg showers to keep the gears cool when on the plane.

Great day at Redbay as usual.
Figured Deep6 was due an engine service and
with Easter looking and the hint of an Irish early
summer I shanghaied willk for towing services.

Door to door and only cost me the best fish and chips on the north coast
And he managed to keep it between the ditches. Fair play
