Hi Folks, Just joined so I can look at all the cool pics and rebuilds of the Aquasports.  I own 2- 2003 215 Explores and a 1983 175 Osprey.  Both great boats.

Hey everyone! Bought my first aquasport back in August, just getting around to fixing it up and playing with it. It’s an ‘01 250 osprey. Love the boat so far!!

3 generations of Bailey's here.  My dad Jim Bailey inherited his 19' Aquasport from his dad. It is a 1968 center console with a step up fore deck.  My name is Matt Bailey and my son is Nick.

We have decided to get the 'ol "Placebo" back on the water. She needs a new engine and that is where we are starting.  Have a friend who offered their 150 Yamaha 4 stroke, but am concerned it is too much...  Where should I post about this or search about this?

Welcome aboard Bailey clan   :welcome01:  and of course, when you start your thread to ask questions  :PicsNeeded:

Sounds like you have a 191 model and it came in 2 models - Gull (Console up against the casting deck) and Osprey (a gap between casting deck and console).  Here is a link to our catalog that contains info on your boat http://www.classicaquasport.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=744

Here is a link that will show HP limits

 Hello everyone! I am a newbie to boating and have an Explorer 275. I'm excited to be a new member here and I have a LOT to learn. I did successfully diagnose and replace two dead batteries yesterday, probably the extent of my mechanical abilities.

Welcome aboard BN. :salut:

The 275 EX is a rather large "starter" craft but good luck with her. Is she Fighting Lady Yellow?

Welcome aboard BoatNewbie !!  The 275 is the model that changed the focus to family and it has a cabin that our older Explorers didn't have - we had the big aft area and the small cabin, you have the opposite, workable aft and big cabin. I just couldn't figure out why they made the head the way they did - like you have to figure out what to do with your legs when on the can.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the 275 background Captain Bob and Rickk. My boat doesn't have the yellow, but that is a nice looking combination. I will transfer some photos of the Fonsea to my computer and post soon. I agree the head does have interesting dimensions -- which I would imagine get even more interesting the taller you are. I'm only 5'5" and find it rather cozy. I have a ton of really embarrassing newbie questions, so I hope I don't horrify the forums with my ignorance!  :sign0104:
