I prefer the Technical Spec. pages at Yanmar

The ZT370 will be fitted to her next. It is designed to cope with the new motor, the 370hp V8, so might be better proofed against Test Monkeys

Thanks for the entertaining write-up. Sounds like a cracking time had by all. What's you opinion on the coastal pro seats?

I liked them so much I took a photo of them. Too bad they were on another boat
I thought they might be of interest...

They were on a black tubed XS, and looking at the list of boats, I suspect they were on the boat called "Coastal Pro"

You think he's going to let you take it out again after you broke it this time!

and Islay RNLI made a catch of one of the smaller ribs
I'm intrigued... was this part of the trip to Colonsay? What went wrong? I'd have thought there were enough other ribs around to get them back to shore without disturbing those sipping the fine stuff on Islay?

I do. Breaking it was part of the brief

Nothing went wrong. The event was not a RIBnet steeplechase and boats joined in and left as they pleased. Tony ran a good show at Easdale and Colonsay but had no control as to where boats went once on the water. Some came and went at their pleasure, some went diving, some stayed in the carefully managed sticks that made the passages in groups. The only casualty out of 40+ ribs had engine failure and was attended to by Islay RNLI who were unable to recover the rib as they had to move on to the kayakers. This boat was later recovered to Easdale by our own AllyS and Sula. Scotsdiver on Redbay 10 did sterling work and overall, I think the CG owed the Meet a point. I took special pleasure in hearing Clyde CG on the VHF asking could "one of the big Redbays" go and tow a craft to safety. Hoo-yeah, brand awareness here we come!

Just looking back over this thread reminds me that I have way too much fun. It just doesn't seem reasonable

So a big "Thank-you" from the Test Monkeys to everyone at Redbay Boats who made our trip (and recovery) possible. We had a ball!

Thanks Lads!

Ah - maybe a bad choice of language from me - wasn't implying that Tony or anyone else had done anything wrong. But this is what I was getting at
