*sighs* Tory Sound - a joy to traverse...

...remind you of anything Tony? That's Callum's old Redbay, BTW. So there's a nice tie-in.

I'll be up for more than that when I'm fitter, not going to waste my time working so hard, I now know I'm here for a good time not a long time

Every time I go out of Cushendall I have this stupid grin on my face remembering that day you and I spent out there on Charles' boat! There was us being quite respectful to the guy - treating his new toy so carefully, not wanting to damage anything, and all he did was shout in our ears "power on, power on ..."!!

So power on we did! What a day!

Were they complaining? I got the impression they were quite enjoying themselves

Wearing a life jacket is not a requirement in Ireland on a vessel of this size, it is for smaller craft. The benefit of a lifejacket inside a "cabin" in a capsize (the only immediate risk to this vessel in that sea) might be limited - at worst, it might trap the wearer.

Of course, being from Tory Island, they wouldn't wear a life jacket if you TOLD them you were going to throw them in. Not manly

Nor would they go in after you!

This was an accident waiting to happen. The driver was positioning incorrectly and mis reading the waves. as he should have been falling back with some of these waves instead of trying to power into them
