The Osprey is currently ready and able to go out to the barrier islands and beyond. It has always been maintained by diesel mechanic, (Dave Adams of Gulfport Ms). and used. Over the 20 years of ownership, we have used it on a regular basis fishing, traveling to the islands and participating in the annual event "Christmas on the Water". We always thought we should have won the prize for best decoration, but sadly never did. The Osprey is ready to use. The new owner can enjoy now and give it a little TLC later. It is a lot of boat for the money. $35,000.
