Well I'll be! That's an Osprey Vipermax hull unless I miss my guess!

Bulwarks! Beaten to it yet again....

Try Lee at Fairweather marine, they gave me a good quote on an e-tec the other day, not quite that big but worth a try.

click here, only goes up to 90hp on the website but he is an agent for them.

I take it that you have got the 6.5m?
Terrible boat you wont like it!
How about the E tec 200?
Have fun, it's going to be a busy winter, just keep us up to date please!




I see the Jackeens beat me to it with the E tec!

thanks for all feedback and notes
i wanted ideally the 7.5 or possibly the 7 but have got a 6.5. i am getting quotes in on the engine and looking at the options currently
the guys who have been recommended i ahve been talking to already for a few days so thanks for the recommendations, currently reviewing some quotes on the etec

we are really looking forward to this build, but i am also finishing off the extension we built so will be very busy this coming winter
