Good man yerself Eugene!

I had a wee walk around her during construction. She's quite the rib. The access to the main cabin is now central from the Flybridge and the berths are more streamlined. The heads compartment is a single moulding, so much tidier.

Have you got the gig bringing her to Southhampton?

She'll need a steady hand that won't overrev her during the cruical running in period.

Just read the Corryvreckan log of the trip to Cowes. Boy am I jealous! Charles Stewart does a good job on the RYA courses. He was very welcoming and patient with me, my son and daughter as we did the Powerboat 2 in his lovely Redbay rib a few years ago. Couldn't believe that he would trust me with that! Sounds like a really good trip and shows just waht a Redbay can do.

I think I'll extend the white shed Wilik and see if I could get a Redbay in there!

I should be out around Bunniniver, Magheraroarty direction this weekend if you are about Wilik.

They frisk me when I leave the factory floor, for stuff like stainless fittings, copper wire and adhesive...

I think it'll be Charles again

You're Old Fashioned.

That, is the only RIB that currently can be licensed to CAT 5 in the Republic of Ireland.

That, is one Bad Puppy. It flips the Bird to Targas
