1993 230 Osprey Center Console
2003 Yamaha F225

Father bought new in '93, I inherited it in his passing recently and am doing some upgrading and refurbishing. Needs some good polishing and waxing since it's been uncovered in the sun for about 8 years, But mainly is in outstanding shape!

Welcome to the club. Sorry to hear about your dads passing. That looks like a really nice rig. Get yourself a high speed buffer from Harbor Freight. Get a good wool pad for it and a quart or so of Aquabuff 2000. Scrub the oxidation off with some Bar Keepers Friend and a scotch bright pad. Then buff with the Aquabuff and then finish off with a quality MARINE wax. She'll polish up like a new penny!

Welcome to the Club, sorry about your Dad, but he had great tastes in boats, I love the wide open deck of the 93, makes it feel much bigger then it really is.

Thanks all, Yes, a good polish and wax are in order for sure

We used it primarily for diving for a long time, so the open back coupled with the armstrong swim platforms made it really easy to walk right up with full scuba gear on. It feels bigger than my friends 27 sailfish
