I haven't tried one, but I have seen one in action - they appear to be grand wee yokes - well built etc. They're very beamy and have a decent V. It's odd - they don't even mention them on the website but quite a few have been built over the last couple of years - a couple for existing Redbay owners. Conor McLaughlin has had one in the yard for years and got great use out of it (and he wasn't short of boats to pick ) - I understand Foyle S&R had it on loan for a while. They are not a cheap boat, as you get the same quality Henshaw tubes that the 11m boats get and a lot of stuff as standard that other "brands" charge for by the piece. However, they did a 5.1 "Lite" a while back - no underfloor tanks, basic A-frame etc. It was a great deal. A, um, 60hp Etec would sit very nicely on one

Corry Óg is in the yard (not her pictured) - you should scoot over and check her out.

Dunno dood. If you want the low-down tech stuff, drop steve.redbay a PM. I was asking donegaldan about them for you but he says he has no interest in piddly little boats. How quickly we forget

Sorry, just checked my "wall" - nada. I'm not even sure about the planing pad.
