Look harder Jonah!

I know you're a busy man Tim but look down the forums and you will see...

Ocean 5.9m

Which has website and contact details.

The red 8.5m with a small cabin you saw at Drivers and later that weekend belongs to a friend of mine. Its his second Ocean and he is very pleased with it. I can put you in touch with him if you want.

I tested some oceans at an open day way back in 98. IMHO the are very solid with good build quality and reasonable performance. I think a well set up ocean would look after you in the rough stuff.

HTH,
Alan

Is that the yellow with twin 225 Mariner.
If it is it`s a great boat in the ruff seas, can recomend it.
Dryer rib in that size is hard to find.

The backrests are the same as those fitted to my 6.25M Ocean, so i presume they are a standard fitting.
