Finally - My new boat

Here are some first pictures of my new boat, just arrived yesterday. It's a new hull first build, so I don't know anything about how the water handeling is going to be. But you will be welcome to try it out on Isle of Wight, to our ribnet meeting

Here it's comming out of the container

here is a close up of the deck layout, after I finnished unpacking the consoel and the first seat. I'm leaving the rest of the seats in the wrapping until I need to secure them on the deck.

And no it's not me sitting in the boat, I'm the one inflating it.

Hi Rene nice boat. Although it reminds me of a hull and colour of a boat I know quite well. A bit, longer this one though

Janis is not an Osprey. The hull is borroued from a PHANTOM and is made in SAfrica

PS Tube material is PVC made in Germany ........ and I know more

Rene, congratulation with your new boat looking nice but not very trustworthy on your old Viperīs trailer. Looking forward seeing you and your boat in IOW in June. What engine/s will fit in the back of this beauty ?

Hi Petrov

The Osprey is not for sale

You can say a lot about SA boats, but they are not as good in build quality as the Osprey (and maybe others, too many to list).
But they are cheaper (A lot).

I can't afford a 9 meter Osprey at the moment so this is the second best option.

Manos.
If you know anything, please let me know. I don't think it's a copy of the Phantom hull but it might be.
The PVC is not from Germany, but it is from Europe (Italy I think)
But please let me know.

IceRibRacing
I'm working on making the trailer 1,5 meters longer without changing the structure of the trailer. It is possible on this trailer to move the wheels further back about 1 meter, and then move the rear (boat wheels) about 1,5 meter back into the "new" part of the trailer. The weight of the boat is well within the range of the trailer.

Rene
