That was one of my early photos; sold the Arctic back in Feb. It's now being used by Greenpeace for their anti Waling operations!!

Latest update:
Console all painted, deck nearly finished (had a coat of paint with sand mixed in now for grip; seems to work well) one more coat on the deck I think will be needed. Engine finally turned up and was fitted to the boat (thanks to my mate Pete for risking his life when getting it on the boat ).

It's looking good now

Im back at uni now so work has grinded to a halt. I'm currently waiting on the pannel for the console (should be another 10 days) then once I've got that I've just got to worry about the wiring, steering, engine controls and a hundred other things.

Hoping to have it on the water in the next month though. Maiden vougue is going to be from Lowestoft I think. Then she'll be down here for the summer

Latest update: The weather has been very good in the last few days so I've been able to push on and the boat is very nearly finished now. The pannel was ready today and I fitted that this afternoon. Other stuff I have done is wired up the nav lights, installed the steering with a very sexy steering wheel, installed the engines remotes (although still waiting on some throttle cables), and instaleed a hatch on the nose cone so I can use it for a bit of storage. I am particulary pleased with the pannel. It cost me a small fortune but was well worth it I think. The photos dont really do it justice, and it should look even better when its got all the instruments in it. Anywhere here are a few more pics. Hopefully lauch day will be next weekend sometime if all goes well!

The Osprey is finally finished (well nearly, just got to glue a new handle on and add a few more bits) so I took her out for the first time today. Launched at Oulton Broad, through the lock and into the sea at Lowestoft. Lovely day it was - nice and warm and sunny and the sea wasn't too bad either. A bit lumpy but the boat performed exellently. The ride ain't bad and she seems to ride through the chop quite softly (if a little wet). Anyway here are a few photos of the yet un-named Osprey Eagle 5.6 (any suggestions for names??). Can't wait to take her out next Saturday on the Thames cruise!!

Three more from the slipway. Check out the steam-boat - not what you normally find when your launching a RIB!
