Top man

Nice one me old mate,

Great boat, and I hope you have a lot of fun with her.

I still reckon the osprey A frame is one of the best in the business

I was interested to see your post. Who are you buying the boat from Boat & Jet Ski World?

We ordered 5.8 Vipermax with 150 optimax in December and hoping it will be ready any day! 6 weeks is very quick.

Roger has just come home and is very interested in what colour tubes you are going for?

Also, you mentioned the console. Which one have you chosen? We opted for a console from Outhill just for looks really. You see them often of the Avon range with the blue fingernails.

We have been very pleased with Boat & Jetski World, and got to know Gary quite well and he really is a genuine guy but just remember at this time of the year everybody is very busy - six weeks is a bit ambitious don't you think?

What made you choose Osprey and optimax?

ribster now i know who you are
i have seen your boat ,, with the outhill console guess who i used to work for?
nice boat long wait though must admit,, if you orderd it then. as you said
gone for grey tubes as yours, they seem to wear better any roads, optimax good on fuel with loadsa power to hoot,
still contemplating going for the 175hp option but thats 1800.00 more ... not sure if its the way to go.
garry is a great bloke been dealing with him for years now possibly has had the best part of 40k out of me in last 3 years.. in skis and equipment.
not inc this satardys deal..
fast turnaround as i am having his own boat that he orderd for him self,,.. took some arm wrenching though
your boat is more popular also so mold is tied up more .. as you know it will fit in your garage,, as sir wanted,,, ive got plenty of storage space,,
where do you intend to use it? and for what purpose?
nosy git i know,, but maybe we can meet up some place and do some cruising..(after i find a suitable towing vehicle that is)

We spend all our leisure time in Anglesey, North Wales so that is where the boat is heading Thursday morning.

We hope to launch Thursday afternoon.

Let us know if you are intend to head that way at all this year and we will arrange to meet up and have a trip somewhere.

Nugent, we haven't seen a post from you for a couple of weeks. Where are you up to with your project?

We knew there were two 6.5 metre Ospreys in their moulds which should be out by now. Is one of them yours?
