She's now a Pasty munchin' Vipermax!!

OK, so now I own a 6.5m Osprey Vipermax with a Mariner 150 Opti hanging off the back. Pretty pleased with it. The Opti needs a good service and a bit of setting up though. Took her out for a test run in the Solent pre-sale. She goes really well, but hell! Give me Falmouth any day. It's Piccadilly Circus at rush hour out there. Every type of craft coming at you from every direction!. I've been at it all day with various bottles of Starbrite and she's coming up like new. Would like to hear from any other Vipermax owners or local ribsters. Cheers

Hi

I currently dont own a boat - sold mine last week and waiting for the new one to be built

I will be back on the water in november so if your not planning to winterize i will see you out in falmouth then.

I make regular trips up and down the coast and am planning to make several long runs next summer - Scillies is definately on the cards - i might take a trip out to lundy island - im even considering the Chanel Islands.

Ive not been on the water in the solent yet but plymouth was bad enough on the powerboat racing weekend im sure the solent is like that X 10.

I prefer exploring away from the traffic my self - out around the lizzard and lands end has some of the most spectacular coatline ive ever seen.

I go boating with my 2 young kids (6 & 8) still trying to convince the wife to take more interest.

Anyway good luck with the new boat - hope you get your engine all setup just the way you like it.

Cheers Roy. Mine will be winterized, but not until December. It would be good to have a run out when you're sorted. Regards Chris

Hi, I am out as often as I can manage, and also run from Falmouth. Though I keep mine afloat at Falmouth Yacht Brokers.

It depends on Rock Marine Services, As soon as she's serviced I'll be out there. Does anyone know how geared -up Robin Curnow is with Opties? I think the agent has to have specific diagnostic comps.

No

Ive bought a complete package from Ribcraft in Yeovil - Boat / Engine / Trailer / and all the trimings...

There are probably cheaper ways of getting a boat together but they do such a fantastic job of rigging their boats when you buy the complete package from them. After their sales guy took me for a tour round the factory it wasnt hard for him to convince me to part with my cash.

Those kids know what they are doing don't they. Some of their recent modifications they made truely make a great rib.

I love playing on the solent, its often nice havin the other boats about with you. I get scared done here lol, when I go out of Goran Haven, it is odd when you only have the coast on one side of you!
