Redbay Open Days 31/1st

Anyone headed to Cushendall this weekend? There's a couple of us Donegal wans headed over...

...donegaldan heard that there was a BBQ

Apparently Gary is selling sponsorship deals for the 1650. For 50 you can have your photo laminated on the hull... oh hang on, that's Alan Priddy, sorry - wrong boat

Ah, now I understand why people are panic buying fuel... willk is heading to cushendall and tom is paying for the fuel... shortages are inevitable. Any chance you'll be placing an order soon? The N.I. economy needs a boost!

You coming over to have lunch in Harry's again ? Its a winning combination of food and redbay boats, that I know even you appreciate :-)

Might even meet some of the old regulars; Tony might come out of hibernation and call up for the day !

All in all, if the WX holds, it should be a hell of a nice day,
no doubt there will be a photo or two of the day..

Aye - good tack in Harry's. We'd figured it for a cold day, winds veering to the North for the next while. What takes you to HQ Cushendall?

in my advancing years I find I am lusting after a cabin boat
which seem to be even more expensive than the things I used to lust after
So MrsW and me have come over for a day or three for a look as it coincided with a few days away from the big boat. Just need to keep the company card away from her or I'll find I'm goin home on the ferry and she's going by Redbay

Open Day 1 of 2 went well. Couple of boats changed hands, good weather, good food, plenty of craic. Bumped into Ribochet, Wavelength & Mrs W. Collected a Yamaha sterndrive leg for Wildwords.

By which you mean that you managed to cram in Breakfast, a Burgerking Baconburger, several of Mrs McLaughlin's excellent BBQ burgers and hotdogs and still go two courses plus tea in Harry's...

Good craic is what you are alright. I note you're keeping your naughty deed to yourself

good few days met old friends and new friends- lusted after various boats, drank too much Guinness and Smithwicks, made a good start at eating my way thru Harry's menu, stayed in the world's best B&B and so much help and info from Charles at redbay powerboat training and from the Irish boys. Desperately trying to fend off RAS-Redbay addiction syndrome.
