My Osprey XR20 Project

Hi, my name's Paul and I've just bought a bit of a bargain I think! It's an XR20, with a '99 200hp Mariner that's a non-runner at the moment. I've bought it with a view to re-rigging with a bigger motor (the boat used to have a 225 suzuki and had the transom worked accordingly), however it now turns out the motor damage may not be terminal, it's a long story that I won't go into but hopefully I'll know by the end of the week. If it is repairable that just makes it a bigger bargain!




















I'm going to ditch the pair of seats at the back, and replace the console with a 2-seater (either buy one or more likely fabricate my own) and move it further back. The plan is to get her ready over the winter for next summer, and to race it in the season of Basic Races over here for a bit of fun

I'll keep this thread updated as and when things get done Hope you guys like it, I think with a more modern console design in black, and a decent clean she'll be a bit of a looker!

Cheers

Paul

It will be interesting to see what it goes for!

Mine wasn't advertised anywhere except for the intranet at my girlfriend's work at the beginning of the year. It was lying in a field on one of my postrounds, so I saw a lot of it, and after a summer of borrowing my girlfriend's brother's boat we e-mailed the guy and they dropped the price to one I was happy with!

Of couse if the price was right! I bet the reserve is set higher than I would be willing to pay however.

I do like this one, even tough it needs work.
I think it can be a nice project for this winter, just like paul a side by side console.

Sorry for going offtopic paul
