We got a couple of problems with or lovely Osprey Vipermax. Its and old BMC project for a blind man, and we are the third owner. The one before us did push the boat quite hard so we have the mission on turning it to what it once was. Tubes are now grey and black.
Does anyone recognize this boat or have any history on it? We are eager to learn the history of this boat.
We are almost certain that our boat is the one in the Sport discovery console option. osprey inflatable, boat, bateau, osprey, ospreyribs, inflatables
1. We have a crack in one of the "steps" on the hull (bought it like that
). The one furthers down on the left side 30 cm from the transom.
We opened up the "step" like an upside down V to let it dry and found out that the wood in the "step" is quite damp. Is the wood in the "step" connected to the hull, or it wood inte the "step" only?
Whats the smartest way to repair it? Our idea is fiberglass and then gelcoatfiller.
2. Does anyone have any pictures of the hull being made?
3. Also, we have small cracks in the edge of the transom in the gelcoat next to the floor. is this something to be worried about? Its an Yamaha HPDI vmax 150 Hp on the back, so its not to heavy I guess?
4. We are having some problems with the oil injection from the big tank to the small reservoir in the engine. It warns when it is out of oil, but it doesn't fill up. We have to do this with lever on the reservoir. Do we have to reset the engine or something? We have checked all the connections.
