New Osprey Website

Following several months of gathering and looking through every photo and video we could find of Osprey Ribs we have finally completed our new website.

Thanks need to go out to all of you that sent in with pictures of your ribs and I am sure you will see many of these pictures dotted around the website.

Particularly I would like to thank Oliver from Osprey Owners who constructed the layout of the website and pulled it all together

We will continue to tweak things going forwards and plan to add new information and pictures as new ribs are built and further changes and updates are made to the range.

www.ospreyribs.co.uk

Thanks All !..

Could've guessed that by looking at the banner on the home page

To be fair to Oliver he would rather have not used that picture, he tried changing it several times but was overruled, its a good picture..

Something to do with not liking his hair long I suspect ;-)

A much better website, but to quote Dave Manning, a few too many "Rastafarian" colour schemes for my taste.

Bright colours make for a good website though. Don't want to much of the John Major look

The website perhaps, but the boats don't have to look like a poof's pant drawer.

This one is definitely my favourite colourscheme. The engine isn't too bad either..if you have to have a four stroke then it's the best of the bunch for sure

Well rigged too...
