My only experience of an eagle is as an observer not passenger. We went out diving with the club boat SR 5.4 twin 40 2 st and one of the guys in their own eagle. SR ran flat and true into a (very) stiff head wind, the eagle almost flipped backwards and had to abandon.

As I say just what I saw on that one occasion but it has given me lots of doubts about Ospreys ever since. Silly I know especially with the Vmax these days but you learn from your own experiences.

9d280

I recently got myself an eagle for the same usage as yourself farmer a cruise up the coast with the family and a bit of fishing and i also have to agree with 9d280 he speaks a lot of sense. Im these ribs will be great fun at break neck speeds, but for what we want im sure the 20 or 30 knts will be plenty, and i will also enjoy blasting past the so called fast fishing boats on the odd day,
