Three Men Go to Scotland - Redbay advert

Is it just me or does anyone else think the Redbay driver deserves a pint?

I do, but I also thought that the Rdebay was meant to be a dry ride?
I have to say that is still one of the locations I want to take my own RIB, in my top 20 things to do before I go "downstairs"

Sorry Wilk but your really needed to have seen the program. Essentially during a drive through the corryvreckan it was artfully arranged for the three intrepid reporters to get a wee drenching.

Oh I think the stick was used perfectly, even managed to set off the "Stormforce" lifejackets (yet another nice bit of product placement).

I'll get a peek at it later on donegaldan's internet feed from the wee north - BBC Viewer doesn't work here, down Mexico way

PS Anyone who pours a bit of water over that smug git Dara O'Whatsit gets a pint from me.

Ah it was nice to see my cruising ground on the telly. Sandy the owner of Venture West did a good job especially the dunking!! I was up there when they were filiming it was a great spell of weather we saw them going off from CH in the race fantastic sight. Sandy certainly made the most of the Corry that was there that day, personally I would have liked to have seen it a little more exciting just to see how they would have reacted!!

Finally

I just saw it. That trip reminds me of my run up there this season - they even sat at the same table in Craighouse

Fairly impressive footage of the 11m. Great advertising indeed. As regards a dry ride, I notice that the skipper kept his teeshirt dry the whole way through
