just got back from Bristol channel, glad to say all went well,
really handled the ruff bristol channel with ease, i [personally felt really comfortable and sea safe in it,

the power is awsome from an old V4, i have owned many ribs and fishing boats over the years, this for a 6.0mtr craft old one at that and an old 130hp lump it flew and gave you a real positive safe feeling,
considering i recently owned a 6.5 vipermax i have to say Osprey are in a league of there own when it comes to hull design,

fully loved it the graft and the smile on my face today said it all, back to normality again, work eastenders and pub LOL

happy ribbing folks, and a sincere thanks to those that assiited my many questions and pointed me in the right direction,

On the subject of help.

any one got wiring schematics for the clocks ? no tacho or trim working, must a wired it wrong, cant see how though.......
sure i can go up to a 21 pitch prop with ease need to see what its reving at

Nuge

Well done Nuge.

You've done well to finish her off in only 3 weeks. Are you sure you didn't have Ian M there, giving you a hand?
