Nice buy, BTW! I missed the bit where you said what size it is?

Would an engine transplant and resale be a poss.?

Or do you sell the Destroyer AND the Northcraft (both very purposeful boats) and go newer? Not sure I see how that works for you? Unless there's a wee 10yo 6.1m Redbay in your horoscope ;-)

Its a 5.8, atleast I think it is, I'm just going on what the Boat House Manager said, it may be a 6M.


I'm in a bit of a quandary.


The Northcraft goes like a stabbed rat BUT it really doesn't like the rough stuff, or should I say I don't like the rough stuff a bit when I'm in it, its a bit slappy.


The Humber on the other hand should handle the rough a bit better but might be a bit on the asthmatic side with an 80.


Can you see where I'm going with this


I bought it for a quick flip, maybe that's what I should stick to.


Unless anyone knew of a 10yr old Redbay 6.1

Well, there's what looks like a little Redbay parked on the ferry slip on Berneray with a for sale sign on it - inboard and a wee front cabin on it. Dunno anything else about it though.
