Is this really an Osprey Eagle!? Osprey XR?

Hi all Osprey knowers. I found this on Ebay today, looks pretty good, but is it really an Osprey Eagle? I'm not the expert, but I think the hull/tube form looks more like the XR or Lynx. And if it is an Eagle, my insurance company would ask questions about that engine, the eagle is rated max 115hp... ;-)
Anyone knows?

Oh goodness...that's back on eBay again..!

It is not an Osprey I'm afraid, neither an Eagle or an XR or anything else for that matter. The ribnet "massif" came up with the idea that it is a home built boat based on Tremlett designs. It is always listed on eBay as an Osprey but we are pretty sure it isn't!!

Last time: Osprey on ebay.....

I actually gave someone a fifty quid deposit for that last year, then posted a pic of the engine on the boatmad forum and the racers on there thought it was a bitsa.
Power head,mid and gearbox all from different engines and a fake cowl.
So I let him keep the fifty quid because he hadn't actually said the engine wasn't made up from assorted bits of ex race engines !
Didn't realise the boat wasn't genuine either !
Seems to have moved south though as I seem to remember it being in the suffolk/norfolk area then.
Needs to be looked at properly and assessed on its merits. Got to be pretty quick !
