Osprey boys, the truth is out!

I'm just home from a quick "spin" through the Gulf of Corryvreckan and I didn't think my day was going to get any better.

How wrong I was....

Your not getting off that lightly (I'm not talking about your Vibromax by the way)
I merely browsed ebay for Rib (which was a covering screen for the viagra ad)

Somebody just heard that a Vipermax offered the most pleasure you could have with your clothes on, and got confused

Interestingly, everything else that this dope has sold on Ebay has 'private' feedback. Presumably he/she's gotton the listing muddled up with whatever Kernow was actually looking for.
It's located in 'Osprey Central'

Five places up from where ours used to be

Do you know if any more engines have been stolen from there recently? Roy told us about a Suzuki DF140 that the got through the fence It would be interesting to know exactly how these people manage it

It's actually a nicely spec'd boat in tidy nick. For a couple of Łk off of asking, it would be a great buy.

I was thinking that, saw the 'vibromax' tag and thought great they don't know what they're selling, sadly I then noticed the price. Lovely looking Rig though, are those Honda's rated?

If it's really a 21 foot boat, isn't it overpowered with a 225. I thought the 6.5's were rated to 200Hp

I would agree. The ebayer obviously can't spell or measure then.

Spell, measure or read. It must have 'Vipermax' written on either the decals or the CE plate.

This one has 8 lifeline blocks mine has 7. None too scientific, but would suggest that it's not a 6.5m. If someone gets the hull no. from the guy, Roy Bish should be able to ID. it.

It looks like a 7m to me too, but could be a 7.5?
The CE plate will say (if it has one . Some don't)
