Daniel is the fuel tank full ? 220 l is a huge amount of petrol that weighs about the same as the engine. I think she is trimmed down by the bow as JW suggests which is were the water is coming from. Never had this problem unless very strong wind blew spray off the wave. this pic is deffinately to far down.

I don't think those pics are fair for a number of reasons:

1) i think the first pic is infact the 'landing' after the second pic
2) they were taken during runing-in when i was not supposed to adjust the trim, so it was "0" which to me looks like under trim if you get what i mean.

---EDIT---I'm wrong, having just checked the filenames they were taken in that order.

I agree 220li is a lot, and yes it is full (or was). I still think the air in the steering might just be the ticket though.

DM - When i called Osprey a few months ago to pick their brains i did not find them as helpful as you had suggested i might, i suspect i might have spoken to a gimp though, will try your contact, cheers. When you coming down to sample my new toy?

You have a planning wedge on the Osprey which helps a heavy dive boat get onto the plane. At very high speeds this will affect the handling but not 35 knots, she should be hands off at that speed, instead you are bow steering. Loose the anchor and some fuel.

Bit worried about that much offset, still nothing that can't be sorted with a little trial and error.

Have you measured her with a tape measure, worth a thought

Just using your pics as examples, top one shows too much hull in the water.

Another, look at the spray???

As for offset i must confess i have not measured it, we took an executive decision to use to exsisting holes and correct it later if we had to. Unfortunatly i don't know what engine was on her origionaly, DM thinks it might have been a 200. It might only be 1". Will measure!

Somewhat off the subject, but i just spotted this photo. It's a constant struggle to keep the bow IN on my friends boat

Daniel, sorry I meant measure her end to end.

Spray looks fine, not coming in the boat. You had a BWM last with concave hull shape at the front which directed the spray right down into the water. the osprey has a much more roundedbow which gives the reserve of bouyancy and stops her stuffing.

Still nice boat and her fit out looks superb.

Pete

Daniel, it doesn't look bow down but it does look heavy. The hull's not full of water, is it? Trimming out, as you mentioned, would send the water to the stern and make that end seriously heavy. Opening the throttle wide might then induce a chine walk once up to speed. Just guessing.
-----------
Just looked back at your pics. 4 folk on board, 3cwt of fuel plus your anchor and, no doubt, other equipment. You're not expecting too much from a hull about 5mtrs long. are you?

Your pal's boat is just one up. Not a good comparison.
