And then it was Sunday and time to go home. We wanted to get the tide and wind right in the channel so headed off early at 0950. We had a last cup of coffee in Craighouse before suiting up for a wet and bumpier ride home. To give the 950 her due she took it in good part and shouldered her way through nicely. We were back in Red Bay at 1445 to find a John Deere reversing the trailer into the water. I'm beginning to think Tom has a wider network of spies and informants than I do - how did he know we were arriving?
Up at the yard we squared away, said goodbye to the 950 and took ourselves home to the hills of Donegal - sunburned, tired and very happy. A huge thanks from the ever growing band of Flying Test Monkeys to the lads at Redbay Boats for seeing us off on another adventure. Thanks also to donegaldan for taking all the photos and most of the risks. Also to Mrs willk for enduring my general grumpiness when things weren't going my way
We will get some video clips together over the next few days. I have some lovely footage of Jambo
P.S. The times that the 950 was being driven a bit fast and recklessly? That was when Poly was on the helm. I just want that on the record...
