Redbay/Ballycastle/Rathlin trip

Anybody fancy a trip to Redbay via Rathlin and Ballycastle?
We would be leaving from Campbeltown but that leg wouldn't be compulsory.....
I quite fancy contacting the factory for a tour and maybe a demo as a potential customer, possibly when I can eventually afford one whenever that would be.........

Well hello Sailor!

Looks like you fell in with bad company on the IOM

I do hope you're not just being a tease, 'cos I'll have to think seriously about running over to Campbeltown and collecting you - I get an extra bonus for delivering "Prospects" by sea (apparently the salt air loosens the wallet)

Any suggested dates for this one? (Redbay closed from mid-day Saturday and Sundays)

If I'm going over first, it would be a "revolving door" cruise with ribs joining whichever leg suits them

Depending on dates count me in on this one BruceB!

I wonder which company on the IOM Willk was referring to?

I think he was talking about himself........
Dates are a bit "in the air" for the moment until I figure out when I can go myself but certainly before the end of august. There are a few dates either out for work or previously arranged trips and I need to shove a pin in an empty slot somewhere with a suitable tide and start making calls.........

Been slightly busy since the weekend sorting vehicles out but will look into this at the weekend, willk has even come up with itineray already as he is on commission I think.
Staying overnight on Rathlin does sound quite nice but I think he has ulterior motives revolving around drink!

Aye, there is.

Bruce is awa' chasing deep sixed scrap metal until August. Redbay have kindly offered a tour of the Works (Monday - Saturday 1.00pm) seeing as how Bruce is buyin'

I think we confer again in three weeks. Should be fun...

"The Redbay Fun Run"

Meh suggestion (disclosed to The Bruce earlier) was to RV in Campbeltoon on a Friday PM and make a run to Rathlin for food, a few scoops and B&B, running in to Redbay for 1030hrs Saturday, have a dekko, lunch and for them's what's goin', depart for Scroatland.

Obviously, the plan is flexible...
