Regards

Martin

Evening Martin,

Welcome to the forum. Its a great place for me and for you and for the entire human race. Some very very nice people on this forum who will bend over backwards to help out in everyway possible (all those who I have met this summer come under this category )

As way of initiation, it is a requirement that you read the following thread, start to finish (all 15 pages). It was started by Mr Pete7 above. Apparently it has become a bit legendary and keeps coming back for more.

Pacific Console Change

I started to read it once, but it drew me into a weird world of mystery and darkness...much like that kids film the "Never ending Story" .

Have fun.

Cheers

Tim

PS only joking Pete, I might need to tap into your vast wealth of knowledge sometime soon to help me with the making some of my own consoles!

Osprey Viper

Hi,

I also have an Osprey viper (they do seem to be few and far between!) and have had the rib for 10 years, it still looks great, a good testament to the Osprey build.
