The Osprey has now gone to a new home in Norway. Two new double jockey seats were added and the A frame cut down and polished to make it look a little less commercial. A Navman electronics package was also added. The console covers were made to measure by Wilsons of Kinver.

Sitting at Tynemouth waiting for the ferry.

After dropping the boat off, I had a 150 mile drive up the coast to Stavanger. The scenery is spectacular with a lake or fjord round every corner. The whole country is boat crazy. There seemed to be more boats than cars. I'm not sure I can ever go back. I was moving on the hurry up and I found out later that their speed limits are KPH not MPH and three toll booths were bypassed at speed due to a lack of pocket change. I also had to apologise to three Norwegians in an old Rover when I went the wrong way round an traffic island coming out of the ferry terminal. I explained that, in England, vehicles towing boats are allowed to do this.
