Redbay 16.5mtr

Well whot can I say, had a nice wee run up to Rathlin to blow away the cobwebs after a great wedding at Cushendall boat club. With Charles in the 8.5. After a couple of pints I was offered a run back in Toms new 16.5mtr." would U like to drive it back?" O yes on the condition that if U ding it U will have to buy it :-(.... I have to say that in comparison to my RB11 the 16.5 is in a totally different league.

Ha! I thought that after commenting on my last experience over there, you would have been more on the ball. That's one of the Three Tests. I haven't had the next two yet, but it's a bit of a worry.

I hope the Alsatian at HQ isn't involved in any of them...

Rb 16.5

I have to say that its some tool
Shame there was not some nice big waves to play in!

But if it was not for the wife I would go back to a 6.1 with a 150 suzy! I am very impressed with the 3 150hp suks that Charles is running.

Charles's boat is amazing. Well impressed. Might even get the better half to go out if I had one of those.
Charles is a brave lad too. Took Willk and I out on the Advanced PB course over two days and the night exercise into Larne. Still brings me out in goosebumps.
