Maybe they thought you were the PSNI over on manoeuvres as they have a small fleet of Redbay 6.5m also powered by twin Honda 90's

Sounds as if you had a great day

The slip at the bridge can be quite lively at times, especially with a SW breeze and a flooding tide! Unfortunately, there aren't that many publicly accessible slips on the Humber.
A word of warning though - you'd be best NOT to park on the hardstanding in front of Humber Rescue, they tend to get a little touchy about it. It's best to use the small carpark on the other side of the trees, if it's free.
