The latest boat is being tubed at the moment. She has one of the last Yamaha inboards left and is being fitted with Seaglaze units, rather than lexan. This means that the owner can spec an opening window at the helm - a nice touch.

Myself and donegaldan were knocking about Redbay all day, so we most likely met you at some point.

Hi P:

I do be up your way quite regularly and I will give you a PM with a bit of advance notice of when I will be up next time. I'd love to have a look at the boat alright. Many Thanks!

Lots of options at the mo. They have completed recent installations with both Yanmar and Volvo (they used both regularly in the not sooo distant past). They have a couple of lower HP, compact Hyundai Seasall units on standby that they intend using shortly - expectations are high but time will tell. Hyundai are being helpful in matching up their units to third party legs.

The next novel install will be twin Volvo 500hps with ZF gearboxes, shafts and rudders...

Here - you should come up to Easdale with us this year - it's good craic (we'll behave )

Are the Volvo's D6 or bigger are they destined for the 16 metre.

Would be a long haul North to travel on Easedale trip but I am threatining a Scottish run with a couple of years now so might just go for it.

Did the trip a couple of years back from Ballycastle to Oban diving with "Aquaholics" on a 3 day trip great memories.

D9s, AFAIK.

The roads are good - you know you want to. We were looking at our charts today, the trip, allowing for the maximum possible routing, is about 250Nm, so you'd get a good stretch when you got up there.

Aquaholics are decent skins, good judges of RIBflesh too...
