Just bought a 1969 19.1 Osprey. Definately a project boat. Looking to do a complete refinish.


Took boat out over the weekend. Ran really strong. It only has a 70 HP Johnson but it handled really well and plenty fast enough for me. I would estimate I got it to around 30 mph. The original spec for the 69' only calls for a 60 HP believe it or not. engine isn't too heavy so its balanced well with that size engine. The 19.1 is not a true flat back but its pretty close. Great getting into the shallows but it does pound in a chop. had no problems punching through. Waves were about 1-2 ft. Was running near Hart/Miller Island on the Chesapeake. Water very skinny between Hart and Miller. Don't want to run through there. This boat of course was designed for Florida island hopping but it perfect for the Chesapeake too.
