Osprey Ribs

This is probably not the best time to ask but just woundering if we are going to to be able to get Ospreys again in the UK any time soon or is it a trip to Southampton to find something else.

Sorry to hear about anyone who lost money at Boat and Jetski World, I myself was overthere on the Weekend before it all happen looking at Nugents new 6.5 Vipermax. Only narrowly avoided Garry taking a deposit off me.

I think they are great boats.

Good sea keeping combined with performance is very rare.

Not been lucky enough to get in a 6.5 yet, but the 5.8 Vipermax with the 150 opti did just about anything

We love ours. I read heaps about Scorpions and Cobras on here which are great boats, but tend to look a bit dreary and full of cushions. We get plenty of people coming up and saying what a great looking boat ours is. It's just a shame that the supply line is a little dodgey at the moment. Wait for the flak from the Scorpion and Cobra owners

personaly beleive these will be available very shortly in the uk.....
as previously said these are laminated in uk any roads, with eurocraft doing 90% of the collars, so i am sure you can purchase as petrov said via belguim ,
got all my bits coming to finish mine of the weekend,
i saw your quote on the screen and thought of you afterwards, liquidators have told me of a 18k loss to one buyer, i wrongly presumed this was your self. ,, thought my situation was bad enougth,
got great deal on an engine . and other bits required still out of pocket at the moment though, but working @ it, life has to go on so to speak..
