I'm going out for a run in the Osprey on Friday to make sure its as good as it sounds from all the comments.

Hopefully all will go well and I can get the painful parting with money bit over and done with!

Quite funny, got to the slipway where it had been suggested we meet and it was low spring tide revealing a two foot drop off the end of the slipway! Luckily the tide turned and came in fast so we made it out before dark.

I could write a full review of the boat but I guess alot of you already know the score. So I'll just say that I was impressed enough to agree a price and start the process of relieving myself of large summs of money!
