Anyone recognise this Osprey?

Back in early 2007 I came across to the UK to find a rib to buy. I ended up getting a Cobra 6.65 which had been built to commercial spec. It was a close thing between the Cobra and an Osprey I saw and sea-trialled out of Rib Shop in Southampton. Anyone know anything about the Cobra (pictures below) ....history, where she is now? She had a great turn of speed and seemed very seakindly. The thing that swung it was that the Cobra had side-by-side seating (jockeys).

(ps - don't be fooled by the 'Hot Lemon' name. She never had any association with Mike Deacon ....I know because I asked him!)

Yup - when I came across to sea-trial it came down to a choice between the Osprey and the Cobra. I went for the Cobra purely because of the seating layout. However, I've always wondered what happened to the one I didn't choose ...the Osprey that you guys had for sale. She was a better looking and better finished boat iirc.
