Yes,

I like the Lynx, too. Especially the 28.

I saw this rib cruising with a couple of other nice ribs over at Moelfre on Anglesey 3 weeks ago. It must have been you!

Everybody on my rib agreed that it looked very stealthy and absolutely awesome!

Yes .. that will have been us ... Quite a few Ospreys of different breeds out that day ... but only 3 of us went past Moelfre and all the way round the Island .... Hit some "Fun" Water out towards the Skerries and North Stack and have to say was impressed with the Lynx (Smaller than my Vipermax but couldnt get it off my tail in the rough )
Few pics here of the trip ... Mines the Blue One

around Anglesey Osprey convention

Hi Mono, thanks for the thread, we had a great day and even got a bit of sunshine! Although when we got to the Skerries it all got a bit rough but was good to see you finally getting some air under that vmax. I would like to thank you,Mike and Roy for your opinions re the Lynx, it`s really some boat and at least now I don`t think it`s just me! Jan thinks I was mad to buy it in the first place but you know me I always try to do me homework.
Deciding wether to sell the Vmax or the Lynx has been a tough one, I can`t keep both so one of them has to go and I can`t get 8 seated behind the console on the Lynx, but then again do I really care? but I can`t stop thinking about getting hold of a couple of Ullmans for it It`s up for sale but I`m still not sure.

A Very tough decision I am sure ... I certainly loved the ride on the Lynx .. and thanks once again! I am sure given your circumstances you are selling the right boat (dont think your family and kids would appreciate 60mph, 6ft out of the water and in a force 6 wind ...)... but then again ... I am sure you will regret it when she's gone (Even if the wife doesnt) .... boys and their toys!!! .... lol
