Managed to source one from down south for a good price, I'll stick some pictures on when I have them. Double side by side with a recess for knees and the suicide seat on the front. I did really like the ones you sent me over, but unfortunately just out of my price bracket. The seasport would have been really nice.

Hi Tom, no worries, I was only interested from the perspective of fuel tanks. The SeaSport is a great console but yes, its a complicated moulding and there are certainly cheaper options out there.

If you need any help feel free to drop me a mail, its always good to see an old Osprey coming back for a second life.

My first RIB was a Viper 5.25 and I have very fond memories of trips out...

Thanks Chris, I'll say one thing, they sure are well built! Getting the tank out, what a task! Looks like there's loads of expandy foam in the hull too, so may have to clear some of that out for the new trunking and tanks. The 5.25 looks like, I'll take a proper look when I'm back on the PC cheers

Didn't get chance to work on the osprey this weekend, trying to get the SR4 hull sorted first. Call it a practice run. Anyhow all rubbed down, primed in polykote and acrythaned, first attempt with an air gun and I'm pretty impressed with the finish. One or two major runs but hoping they will sand/buff out. All a learning curve I guess! Will be much easier not having to work upside down on the Osprey! Sanding and fillering isn't perfect but looks a damn site better than before.

Good Effort Tom, I think you will be able to get those rubs out ok. I don't get on with air gun painting at all, just haven't got the patience !.

Cheers Ed, does the whole thing need rubbing down with 800 before moping? I've got some G10 and 3 to go on.
Wish I'd taken the time to remove all the scuffs from the hull now. Never mind, this one will be up for sale soo .
