You back home yet Field Marshall?

Tom mentioned that there were some sort of addition rails getting fitted forward - the details escape me as usual...

See you were back in the Beast for another sea trial - I think you should just do the "deal" and make it your own -

Looking forward to Ardbeg

I was out training on Belfast Lough today and was delighted to see "Caledonia" in operation with Belfast Harbour Authority and an impressive vessel she looked

Caledonia is heading south to SeaWork

Redbay Boats will have its largest presence at the Seawork show in Southampton from 25 – 27th of June 2013.

Caldonia will depart from Redbay on Friday 21st crewed by Charles Stewart, Joe Mc Collam and Conor Mc Laughlin.

Caledonia will make scheduled stops at Rosslare, Newlyn, Falmouth and Portland before arriving in Southampton on Monday.
To extend the range a 1000 litre reserve tank has been added on removable mounts to the after deck. The boat is fitted with AIS and you can follow its progress.

In addition to the 1650 the recently launched 12 metre Coastal Connection RIB from Oban will arrive by lorry and will be launched on Monday and motored on to the berth, this 12mtr rib which is powered by twin jets is a totally commercial rib and is coded for 12 passengers. Coastal Connection is at the show to promote the commercial side of their business.
Redbay will also have on show two 7.4’s - one powered with a 300hp Suzuki and latest demo 7.4 powered by a 250hp Hyundai diesel, this 7.4 features our patrol console fitted with A Frame and T Top - all boats will be available for demonstrations .
The show opens each day from 10 until 5 and entry is free. So if anyone is in the area it is well worth a visit

Plans changed. She's going to Yarmouth tonight. Nearly there now.
