Osprey Rib?

Looked at this last week, guy says it's an Osprey it has a hard nose yes but it doesn't look like any Osprey I've seen. The bow locker is a different shape. Also the transom has 2 knees but also as can been seen in the picture (with the engine) a large moulding which goes from under the rear of the jockey seating upwards to the transom.

Anyone any idea what it is?

No that's what I thought.

The bow locker is different and the stern is much beefier the solid bit from below the seat goes in to the well and on to the hull looks very strong. The motor is a 140hp.

Any idea what it is?

No plate nothing new about that!

It was a while ago, but did you find out what this was? I have just picked one up cheap that is definitely the same hull, but don't know what it is!

Seen one advertised guy claimed it was a BWM he knew the guy who built it!
The one I looked at seemed well built with no stress cracks around the transom. The hard bow locker door bit was rather weak looking.

Would have bought it but Searider 4.7 came along at the right/wrong time

You may have just made my day! I know of BWM ribs, but didn't know they did a hard nose. I just came across this advert...

and if that is a BWM, then so is mine... same hull shape, tube shape, nose cone and locker shape!!! Cheers :-)
