osprey eagle owners / past owners

I am working on said model of rib,
under the seat pod there is a single tube approx 100mm dia, as far as i can tell this goes straight down to the hull, originally thought that it was for feeding cables to aft end, and some one had glassed over it, this is not not the case

Question is,, is this for fitting of a transducer ?

many thanks in advance Nuge

The early Eagles has all control and fuel pipes go across the deck. Haven't seen one with under deck trunking.

Sounds like it Nuge. Some people rig a tube like that, drop the transducer in and fill the tube with oil. Must have been the done thing before silicone sealant was invented.

Nugent,

With regards to the console and steering. I had the same console on my old Viper and the best 150 I spent was to get Mike Wooton (who builds the Hulls) to strengthen the top face of my console where the instruments were to take the steering pump. I could still fit the instruments and just moved the radio down to where the steering was (Mike also filled the hole from the old steering position)

This moved my steering up to a much more confortable position and transformed the comfort especially when standing. Mike did a superb job and it looked like new.


Here was mine before.....



And After.....



Definately worth the effort. It transformed the experience.

Think it's 1991 era, if you look at the console were the throttles sit on Chris's boat the corner has been flatened off so the control box sits flat on the console, yours will require spacers if the throttle is to be in line with the boat. Mike didn't do this until 1992. Tubes are the lobster design with the seems running around the tubes rather than the later (1992) along the tubes, one hidden under the rubbing strake and one visible on the inside like Chris's.

However the tubes are in good condition for that age so I wonder if the tubes have been replaced during its life.

You should open up the nose cone with a henderson water proof hatch on the verical surface that faces into the boat for storage. It jsut fits. Once done then with a mirror and torch check the ends of the tubes in the nose cone for the date of manufacture of the tubes, by Eurocraft.

If the A frame is the original one and it looks like it is then stick the 140 on it and enjoy. Tippy boats btw compared to more modern designs but very good going into the waves, indeed almost untouchable even today.

Pete

Pete hatch allready cut into nose ( see pic )i had a repair to do here, throttle position i was going to glass box onto consol to suit once i have the controls,

craft was retubed by henshaws 5 years ago, hence why they look so good, mind was well grubby when i got it, see pics before and after

when you say tippy, you mean chine walk or at rest ?

moisture test been done on the hull floor and transom passed with flying colours no damp, been stored inside all its life after use owned by a s/hampton dive club,

Chris thanks for pic of your hull will assist me with steering position,

Pete you may have noticed he was talking about the Bristol Channel in which case he'd most likely be shouting Oooo Arrrrr.
