Were used and still used for offshore racing. Osprey's were also used for dive boats, rescue boats and commercial work. So think they've proved themselves over the years. Strong hull, well built with a soft ride

Matt knows that VMs are built like brick sh*thouses, 'coz he's been all over Chris'. Well ah, maybe not recently.

I love this one, perhaps it would look even better with grey gel? We almost talked about selling ITR as a bare hull then swapping the engine and electronics all over to this one... The flash of red with carbon tubes is just perfect!
