I'm not familiar with the term "take the biscuit". Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

We were over a Rathlin a couple of weeks back and Tom came in with his new 11m. Feckin lovely, finishes are first class and complete with all the toys. Two E120 displays with infra red cameras in the engine compartment . While we were there about another 5 or 6 Redbays came in ranging from 7.4m to 11m and full cabin to one like the Predator fishing type.

Ohhh, I hate visiting that website. A Redbay would be the ideal RIB for exploring this part of Canada. All I need to do is win the lottery How much does one of those 11m full cabin jobbies go for?

Brand new, I reckon about 68,440 euros. Don't think that includes the engine(s) though!

Or you could have a 'previously-loved' one for £47,000 which includes a 240hp Yamaha stern drive but is 'only' 8.4m!

OK Alan plan a) is to win the lottery and plan b) is to for you to tell me who is going to have a Redbay 11m over here so I can get friendly with them and so's I can get a go in it. Which do you think is more realistically achievable?!

and the new 8.4 expedition:

I presume that Redbay heading to Canada will go by sea, would be a shame no to!!

Awesome boats!

You say " plan b) is to for you to tell me who is going to have a Redbay 11m over here so I can get friendly with them"

Look at who made the post! It is a matter of public record that the person who made the post gave a presentation to the Redbay users group in Redbay at the end of April!!! Maybe it is time to start offering your services as Liasion officer!

Enjoy!
