Rock Marine Services
Sort of had dealings with them, was looking at a rib at their premises that one of their customers was selling, he was a real Arfur Daley. They very kindly and very subtely warned me off, so yes I was impressed and am pleased to be able to somewhat repay the favour

Thanks Pete, I had read it. I did a fair bit of research before buying the Osprey. I really am very impressed with it. Chris

Nice looking boat though - I look forward to seeing you out on the water.

I presume you got the bottom clean now. All that shit stuck to the hull must shave 5 knots of the top speed.
OK, 6ftish. The boat was filthy when I brought it home. It had seaweed living in the rear well. The tubes were dark grey with grime. Unfortunately it has been antifouled ( which I think is only for lazy owners on a trailered boat). This was rubbed down for re-antifouling but it hadn't been carried out. It looks awful, but we're getting there. She's in good nick, it's only cosmetics and I enjoy the work.

I'd love to get to Falmouth for a meet up too, does anyone know of any campsites around there which would take a 6mtr boat on a trailer too?
Camping wouldn't be a problem. A mate of mine owns a very small site in Mylor quite near to Mylor Harbour where we launch. Mylor do a reasonable visitor rate if you wanted to leave her in the water overnight. Chris

I think we will be camping as well, do they take dogs at your friends site Chris?

Ive emailed Mylor to see how much it is to launch and stay over night.

Cheers Shaggy

I reckon you have the very boat in the article!
Saw what I think is your boat in Limington a couple of years ago, looking very nice!

Hi Petrov
Nice photo what was the model and spec of the Osprey in this Pic?

Ive been looking at the Ospreys web page and see that the Seaharrier has a higher rated outboard capacity "250hp - 2 X 115hp" than the Vipermax "200hp - 2 X 100hp" does it have the same sea handling capacity?

I havent seen many Seaharriers around either?

Shaggy
