Hello from Telford

Excellent site! Been trawling through the posts for the last few months before making up my mind on what rib to buy. Really confusing though as everyone has their own idea on what's best. Ended up buying a new ribeye 600 and collected it Thursday. Really pleased with it and can't wait to get it on the water. Thanks for all your useful information.

Hello Tony were not all as hardcore as you! Had a look at your website. I launch at talybont by Barmouth so hope to catch up with you sometime. I'm new to the world of ribs as I had a bowrider until recently. Looking forward to venturing a bit further than just barmouth!

Hi Dave, funny you mentioning two places that hold memories for me. Currently working with a company in Telford, Torton, and Barmouth is where the capabilities of Ospreys were first demonstrated to me by the late Roy Bishop. The day did not end well, but that is another story. Suffice to say that proceedings were such that I have vivid memories of what puts the bar in Barmouth

Join us in April on the Anglesey cruise, even if you don't go round the island, the run from Caernarfon to Conwy and back is one of the most interesting stretches of water in the UK. With over 20 boats already signed up, we had 30 last year, you can be sure of help in many ways, most importantly navigation from some proper locals, but also a great natter per beer at lunch and the evening.

Took the exact same model out with ribeye's hand over chap Martin 2 weeks ago in Dartmouth. Also I'm really pleased with the overall build quality of it.

The bar at barmouth was one of the main reasons I got the Rib. After trying to cross it in the bowrider one day and nearly sinking it I thought it was time for a change!
