The next Wishin


Recommended Posts

Sea trial went ahead,all went well cruised @18knts against the tide through Hurst and 24knts back through with the tide same revs.Took it through the bridge @18kts.....I was ok so was boat but previous owner and his mate went a bit white sick.gif

She does 30kts at full revs if needed and I needed today!!!

I will transfer to my mooring in the week biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif just in time to get some fishing done if weather plays ball.

I have some work to do on the Osprey expedition 24 mainly inside the cabin as it is dated and in need of upgrading,apart from that and a few dozen rod holders more electronics etc that's it.

Power is Yamaha 420sti 245hp through a yam leg single prop.

Hopefully you should see some catch reports soon and maybe a species or two rolleyes.gif

All the best Nige

Well done mate

Glad the seatrial went well.


She looked a very solid boat when we climbed all over her last week


The hull is as dry as a bone and all work seems to be cosmetic.


I hope that she gives you as much fun and success as Wishin did


Have you come up with a cunning name yet?
