L Hooker. Not sure if you remember several years back, bass fishing when we needed to get out over the weed bank at Groenflei Sedgfield and commandeered an old abandoned boat with a large hole in the side. Both of us huddled up on the one side so that the water could not get through the hole and sink us. Guess that was the last trip that boat ever made and the fish that we pulled that day will be in my memory banks forever.
 
Some great pic's thank guys

Sad seeing all those boats Marcos. I spent some time up in Beira some years ago and could not believe my eyes when I saw the amount ships and boats that have been left to rot like.
 
Spent many years thinking on how to get that metal cut up and sent to the scrapyard.
 
Needles to say I have not come up with a good idea.

A few more dead boats I've encountered...

I would love to get hold of those ribs and rebuild them.
I wonder if they were stolen and stripped

That Osprey rebuild was incredible, one would never know it was an old girl after the rebuild/facelift.

Osprey is a lovely boat, certainly a labour of love. A massive cash outlay but awesome to see an old boat get a second chance, its quite emotional actually  :cry: :cry:

and unlike some other "old girls" paying for a facelift on her, you can still be happy to ride her, and even invite your mates for a ride as well.
