Introducing PHOENIX

There could only be one name for her Phoenix, she is an Osprey Eagle with a 75hp Suzuki. Picked her up from Anglesey on Thursday towed great. Spent a couple of hours today checking her over and getting my priority list sorted, the aim is to get her in a usable condition and have some fun and as funds permit do the refit bit by bit.

That's great news Richard, was quite a talking point at Yarmouth yesterday. Yes get some fun out of her and turn her into a work in progress.

I'm so pleased for you.

Well done Richard

If you could refurb it on the good will of the folks on here alone, it will turn out to be a stunner. Keep us posted on the progress, cause we love your work, descriptions and pics
