Osprey XR20 Project

Bought my first RIB few weeks ago.
Picked her up in Midhurst, so we had a little trip to do, 22 hours of non sleeping.

Back home, after starting stripping the RIB we found out that the hull stood full with water.
Marine ply of the deck repairment (from 4 years ago) was totally soaked with water and rotten.
Whils sanding the remaining of the deck found another compartment filled with water, this was used as ballast, and didn't damage anything of the hull.
But still wanted to get rid of all that water.
Transom was also totally soaked, so removed the transom.

New transom is replaced of 40mm marineply, after laminating the transom is 60 mm of thickness.
The new transom knees are build with 40 mm marine ply glassed in and 30 mm laminated to the 40 mm knee.
So after laminating the transom knees are 80 mm, and fit right to the lengt stringers.
This evening i've laminated the new deck.

Started building a new side by side console.
Got a lot of work to do, but hope to have lot's of fun with the xr20 next summer.

Oh, the deck was repaired but it is now sound.........see pictures
Tubes need a little attention but are in good shape........... both lose air

Just have something to do this winter.......

Maybe i will have have her retubed also, but that all depends how much budget there wil be left.
I do hope enough to retube cause these tubes have just one chamber each.

will keep you guys posted now and then if you like!!

Looks as though you've got your work cut out in rebuilding the Osprey. Will be wholely satisfying when you complete.

Are you going to keep the Evinrude DI or swap it for something else?

I look forward to your rebuild.

The evinrude is for sale, i can buy a merc 150 optimax for a fair price.
But then the Evinrude has to be sold first.

I like the smartcraft system of mercury, and the Osprey will be totally black when she's finished, so a black merc looks better then a white evinrude

I was thinking of derating it to 150 and putting besides my CCW to get 300

No seriously, I will upgrade one year. To a 200 I think

Thanks for the images and the info, I took on a project like this a few years ago and it has been "a bit of a struggle".
We are now finally enjoying the fruits of all the hard work.
I wish you all the very best of luck and please keep the info coming.

Best wishes

Lee

Thanks for all the positive reply!!!

Yesterday we've sanded the new deck, smoothend it with epoxy filling.
At this point comes a time of sanding and using epoxy filler to reach a smooth deck.
When thats done i'm going to build a deck locker where i putt 2 buckets seats on.
At the back i'm going to build a transom locker with bench seat on it.
I've already started with the console.

At this time i'm looking for black hatches, can't buy them here in the netherlans.
So am in contact with BMC ribs in belgium.
Maybe some of you guys can help me for an internet adress???

Attached photo's of the epoxy filled deck and the console.
Sorry for the bad quality, took the photo's with my cell phone..

Interesting isn't it. If you had bought a XR20 16 years ago and kept it in top condition it would now be worth? well nearly exactly what you paid for it.

@ Pete, thanks for the folder.

At this time, ive started with the side by side console and the deck locker where the bucket seats wil be mounted on.
To find out the right hight of the deck locker, i placed the bucket seats on the table in the garden.
And piled up some pieces of wood till my feet touched "ground"
Then it was just a matter of measuring.
I've attached a photo of the seats on the table and one of the setup with the side by side console.
When the setup was placed, i had to check the dimensions of the console.
So i took place behind the console in the seats, console is perfectly fine as is.
I had to check the space between console and my knees.
I dont want to hurt my knees on a bumpy ride......

Those crates are being lined up as seat bases.
