New Arrival

A friend and I have just taken delivery of the Osprey 7.0 / Honda 225 advertised on here a few months ago.

Have got a full rebuild planned for the winter so look out for more updates.

It's a solid boat with good tubes and a really clean low hours engine, so mainly electronics and controls that need replacing. Looking forward to getting back on the water.

Hi Tony, glad to be back on the water , we are looking forwards to lots of solid trips out next year, spoke to Maximus the other day and if he gets his new Ribcraft up and running over the winter then perhaps a Lundy / Cornwall run to blow the cobwebs out as a starter

Lots of work to get it up to spec however its a very solid boat to build on.

Will be ordering a new console top and will start from scratch with the re-rig.
