The launching of CELTIC VODKA

The weather was good at Herne Bay today and ideal sea conditions for the launch and sea trails of CELTIC VODKA. CELTIC VODKA is an all black Parker 900Baltic RIB purchased by Bayblast Marine of Herne Bay see: www.bayblast.co.uk This new craft is joining an ever growing fleet of ribs used for seal watching, trips to the wind farm, kentish forts and trips for special occasions. This was my very first trip out in those waters and enjoyed every minute of it.

Wow

Hi

Andre, The rib looks superb, matching black trailer too. Another Happy Client, so is that now 3 Baltics this year in the UK

Radar looks nice and high too, so not likely to fry any passengers brains.

See you tomorrow

well- on a certain windfarm off the European coast, where my daughter and her fiance are skippering a 50ft jet drive catamaran, a night out during a few days off and involving certain skippers/owners/and windfarm professionals saw my two, not having shall we say the awesome drinking capacity of some of the more experienced revellers and unwilling/unable to attempt to keep up.
The next week at sea their Windcat became known as "Wimpcat" during certain radio conversations. In retaliation they renamed the rib Celtic Voyager as "Celtic Vodka".
Oh happy days - great team, good company and good friends onshore and complete professionals at sea
