Yep, XR18 hull. I sold the mould to a guy from Bognor Regis. Last time I spoketo him he had repaired the mould and was making a rib for himself. Looks like he made another too.

The are sensitive to weight in the stern therefore a 2 stoke 90 would be ideal rather than an overweight 4 stroke.

Or a Vector perhaps, which became Ospreys via the XR's. Vector went 'belly-up' in the late 90's. Hulls and moulds went in various directions.

Yes it is. Interestingly enough the guy who changed the mould and added the planning wedge about 1993 time is Gary from Spartun Marine, small world.
