Personally, I blame the Redbay Marketing Department "Redbay Stormforce - when you MUST go to sea" I can almost hear the Mission Impossible theme in there too. It's heady stuff , and may have overcome the OP's sense of modesty.

I just thought the photo was quite good!!!!!!!!!! The boat is not that bad either. Us Redbay owner do have a certain smugness in the fact that our crafts do have a capability and quality that’s second to none achieved through a simple approach to doing it right.
And to the “ Irish Rib Thing” that’s the fact we have more fun, use less fuel, pay less and have more sea to play in, (albeit we do go a little slower) than you Tony.

TSM – how all in well in Mayo,,,,,

Thanks SB
