Seeing as 200 miles is a long was to go just to buy Alan Priddy a pint and catch his trumpet solo, we figured it would be better to go early, oogle a few ribs and snag dinner in Harry's - to pad his performance out a bit, as it were...
There was a lot of cool new stuff on the main floor. In fact, in build there were:
3 x 11m Cabin
1 x 850 Jet
2 x 950 Charter boats - twin twin 300s!
1 x 750 cabin
1 x 7.4m open (Red Thunder's boat)
...and 1 x 16m Pilot Rib growing in the mould
The 850 (I think) is for London Port Authority. She's a bit of a departure for Redbay as the tubes are demountable and the deck has open scuppers. The engine cover and console swing off for easy access and she has a lot of usable deck space. The raised deck allows for a deep storage area in the forward open area. I think the power is a 315hp Yanmar, purely as I saw one sitting beside her. This was to be coupled to the Hamilton Jet with a German carbon-fiber drive shaft, light enough to hold in one hand.
