will go for the basics at first so that i can get it on the water

hydraulic steering. hopefully engine will be delivered this week.
hey congrats on the new boat, you will be chuffed to bits i am sure, stick the biggest hp engine it will take and you will be very very happy. at this rate i think we need an osprey cruise round the iow this summer or similar event. yesterday it was osprey vipermax's were the most popular boat on our small cruise....ok only 4 boats and me and bedajim there but i am so used to being the only osprey..let alone vipermax unless in cornwall with those scallywags.

but looking good and looking forwards to seeing more pics....cheers

135 mercury optimax awaiting delivery. hope ive made the right decision,
having gone from the suzuki df140, The quality of the hull and finnishes
have more than surpassed my initial expectations, its easy to see why they are a popular build, looking to at least sea trial her within the next fortnight
all being well and with a bit of help from Ian and Jono fitting the engine

I'm not so sure, it looks darker. Might be Ocean blue, but I'd like to find out as I haven't seen a RIB tubed in Delphe blue yet and I still have time to change my mind.

Been a busy couple of days with the build, bow locker and front seat hinges and catches fitted. Engine fitted out friday with the great help of Ian sharlott
and tony, Wave runner at PBS workshop, a long day but now looking like its
nearing completion,
seats went on today, switch panel and radio fitted. Next job will be to wire
it all together. some pics of progress.

Looking good Steve, must be itching to get on the water.

Can you tell me something please. Where is the fuel takeoff/fill in relation to the inside of the console? Any pictures?
