Sorry for delay in getting back to you - been a bit of rush the last 72 hours

Were talking to a number of companies but nothing definite, however the great thing with Osprey is you can have what you want........within reason

Is the Falcon 8.2 along same lines as Vipermax, or does it handle very differently? Says its similar, guess the question is what are the differences? The 8.2 with twin 200's would be very cool Any specs/configs available to have a look at?

It is similar but the Falcon is a lot wider, not really suitable as a leisure boat tbh, significantly heavier construction than the already beefy vipermax. Usually fitted with bolt on tubes
