Pickwell and Arnold Boatbuilders
  Length: 17m
Beam: 12ft
  A shedule 'C' boat (sea specifications). Built by us as a 'Sail Away' (navigable vessel) and fitted out by the owners. Commisioned by a retired couple who, already being competent sailors, sailed her across the English channel and then took her in and around the coasts of Holland and Germany. 'Osprey' then entered the European canal network at Calais and cruised the French canal system, followed by the canals of northern Europe, and overwintering each winter in Belgium. She has been cruising for 3 years and is still going strong.

Martin Pickwell visits the owners of Osprey in Brugge, Belgium, and is forced (against his wishes) to drink beer (he's a very satisfied builder).
