Do you want to change your boat style?
Under 3m ?

IMO, he means you're SIBbing it - in the hood with the Gurnard and the beach brigade - brave moves from a 7.4m owner!






P.S. Classic west of Ireland boating pics.

Well, a 7.4m RedBay was perhaps overkill...but took this total novice helmsman (and his crew of 4 plus two large dogs) to various Connemara Islands across the residual swell of the passing tropical storm, in safety and dry comfort. So, itís overkill for this year...but the test of manoeuvring and navigation sets me up for more adventurous trips next year. Itís a 10-year Atlantic coastal boat. One step at a time.

I was thinking more about your ability to squeeze it into wee bays and quays....
