Redbay 16m leaves the page...

...and begins life in the new workshop.

As I don't have the time for BookFace (generally) I missed this. Linky.

Its only when you physically see the completed plug that you get an idea of just how big 16m actually is.

When the going gets tough the tough get to built a big boat

Go Team Redbay

Aye, 16m is a fair whack of boat. I wonder are they planning a less complex/pricey prototype boat than the passenger concept? The Pilot boat concept would prove the hull for now and give time to, um, "hold discussions" with the MCA about future passenger numbers.

So new engine/leg combo for them presumably? I guess they'll be needing someone to test that to destruction! I wonder if DD had already sent in his CV?
