That hull looks like one of those superb Ospreys to me.

Clicked on the middle 360 degree tour, and immediately wondered what the dead guy on the dock was all about?

True but they need a very very big engine, otherwise some jumped up snozzle boy with a beat up smoky old carbed 90 will make you look a right Nobber!!

i seem to remember alice telling me that the seat was a very fast boat.

i think the shopping trolley was mine, i attached it to alices vipermax so she can take it in close to the slipway and she can run it up the slope on the trolley.

when running at speed it should be swung up and clipped onto the aframe.

also it could have been the half a ton of tools she had to carry to ensure other boats got home in one piece!!!!!!

Nick,

The controls are actually in a great location for comfort. The boat was developed with ALLOT of feedback from the CCG. It turns out that a pod mounted control away from the helm helps keep your sholders square, and lessons your fatigue. It does use allot of deck space though.
