Since this is the Osprey thread, what ever happened to the owners association site, sounds as if a lot of effort went into that?

The server it was on went down and lost the layout. Pity because there was some good info and a great selection of photos.

I've still got a lot of the content and may well get round to redoing it next year.

A 7 meter is rated to 250 or twin 115 a 7.5 is rated to twin 150 or 300 single either way its grossly over weight at the back end.

I wouldn't trust that spec sheet with my cat's life, and having been picked up for being slightly inaccurate on other occasions I thought it better to include the theoretically

(And I don't even have a cat)

Osprey eagle rated at 115hp but flew wid my 130hp yam strapped to it no chine walk either,,

i have also seen a 5.6 eagle with 150hp opti on it, this was parked up in beumarris few weeks ago,, brown streaky pants job me finks, very supprised transom could handle it,

i fabricated some nice stainless strengtheners for mine, but never fitted them, as it never cracked the many years old gel coat first few outings, so presumed that yet again Osprey boats are built Right,

Suggest to the "Careers Woman" that she should perhaps, consider another career.
