Whackywoody, my humble apologies

You posted the original and then disappeared to watch the X Factor (go on, admit it) so I filled in for you for a couple of hours, moved it along a bit!

Some very useful info from other forum members, as always.

Good thread and very timely.

another thing to bear in mind is warranty, and if you want to keep the warranty you may need to stay with a main dealership for servicing, even if in theory you can take it anywhere trying to find someone to take it on may not be so easy

Midway boats supplied a Fletcher I had as a new boat 13 years ago, they are still going now. They have a proper workshop and a display 'shed', but I havent used them in years (too far away).

Original poster! Whackywoody - I'd go for a Suzuki 140 or bigger.

Hijacker ;-) barrowboy - osprey's are great boats. I'm happy with my Humber. It came to me as a very good second hand deal and I can't fault it. However, I've owned an XR18 and that was extremely robust and withstood my very sharp learning curve when new to ribbing! I've been told that the ocean pro and XR hulls are related. Anyone know about this?
Does anyone know if Osprey offer Suzuki's as a package? Would make a nice set up?
