Yep, its certainly ordered, that's my very hull as of yesterday in Mike's workshop. Delivered the console and agreed the seating layout, so it'll be off to the tubers next week I gather.

Tubes are going to be Arctic grey, with flashes of the 'new' Bordeaux (maroon to you and me) along the side and as patches. Unfortunately it's so new that they haven't got any in stock yet!

It then comes home to me for fitting out over the winter. More pics will follow

Excellent and congratulations, is that another Ocean Console

I see that you got them to do the bespoke footwell as well.

Give me a ring at the weekend if you like, I have some info for you.

Like you, I also wasn't too keen on the Osprey consoles so went for the Ocean as it suited my needs better.

Shame you didn't have longer in the area when picking up the console Gerry. Could have met some RIBnet Solenteers for a social.

I look forward to the day we have an Osprey Channel Island meet

Do keep the pictures coming tho.

No time for that unfortunately. It was off the ferry at 6.30 am on Tuesday, straight to Ocean for the console and up to Mike for 3pm. Stop off at Banbury on the way back for an overnight and then back on the ferry at 12.30 Wednesday. 550 miles, and about as much in travel expenses later

Yep, that could be good. Just give me enough time to get mine finished! Meet you all in Alderney, then we could do a couple of French ports for lunch etc and then down to Jersey.

Codders, you've never actually spilled all the beans about your boat build. You could start a thread. I'm sure it would be well received (by most folk).
