Osprey Open Day - Caernarfon, 20th August

Hi All,

Osprey RIBs will be having a demo day on the 20th August at Victoria Docks in Caernarfon. There will be several of our RIBs available to try out including a Vipermax 8.0, a Vipermax 6.8 and an Eagle 5.6.

For anyone interested in attending details are available on our Facebook Page and https://www.facebook.com/events/1808458792708754/

It will be a great opportunity to come and try out a couple of boats and also meet some current owners.

Feel free to drop a line to chris@ospreyribs.co.uk if you are planning to come and see us.

Just a reminder for anyone planning to attend. We will be at Victoria Dock next Saturday with several RIBs to test.

There will also be a second demo day at Cardiff Bay in September / October, details to follow..

After a 5 hour drive up to Caernarfon it was great to see such a good turnout despite the weather. We enjoyed meeting some very committed Osprey Fans and also several prospective owners

Thanks to Rock N Rolla and Chris Caton for your help and advice on the location and for helping us on the day.

We managed several trips out into the Menai Straights with the Vipermax 8.0 and with 50 Knot plus South Westerly's along with a strong tide it made for some rather interesting conditions !..

The Garmin VIRB did a great job of capturing a couple of these....

Also Rock N Rolla Took out a few brave souls for a more vigorous work out

And finally thanks to Andrew Caton for giving the RIB a good Washdown, saved me having to worry about it later

thanks for making the effort to drive up, considering the weather conditions on the day I think you deserve a top banana Chris

its a cracking rib, let's just say twas a grand day for a demo eh, I'm sure everyone who was there will agree the rib was fantastic, especially in the hands of Dean, it's good to see the Grasshopper is coming along nicely

glad to be of help, let me know if you decide to do it again, I'll make sure I'm about t help out

seems I'm not really Vipermax stuff, the comments cut deeper than any surgeon has managed over the last 4 years, so I won't be joining the Osprey fan club anytime soon
