I dont know either of you, but have to admire your faith in the brand and courage at taking this on. I am sure you can make a go of it.
all the best

me too best of luck Its a top class product so you should do well



re that Falcon 8.2 I always thought it was a perfect size for a small commercial boat/pilot Rib. I remember suggesting to Mike that a wheelhouse would be an asset. Do you have any plans for that?

I would explain but people might think I was Osprey bashing. If you want an answer then ask Mike the builder of the RIBs from whom "not really a leisure boat" is a direct quote.

Does that translate as "I don't know, but it's something I heard someone else say"?

No, I simply don't want to get drawn into a discussion that could be construed as negative when this thread has been set up to let the "massif" know about the latest goings on with the brand and most likely offer their good wishes to the new parties involved.

I formed my opinion on the Falcon in no small part due to Mike's, and I certainly bow to his superior knowledge. That his statement fits with everything else I have read and heard about the model and what I can draw myself from the specs is clearly not co-incidental.
