I have the original report from Diver Magazine printed in 1993 where Colin Jones raved about it. I can post if allowed to?

Anyone know what happened to the Osprey Owners Association?

When did they start to make the Viper? it would be good if you do have that magazine review

Martin, Viper hull number 1 was Oct 1992.

Now that Osprey you want to look at, did it have a combined bottle rack and seat so if you removed the seat you could use the frame to store dive bottles? Engine used plastic cups rather than a key? black HD non slip deck. Mattery master switch on starboard side of console? Cheap b/w eagle echo sounder and probably eagle or Ultra GPS? Fuel tank 20 gallons/90 litres?
Elephants trunk fitting has been repaired with 6" x 70mm of grey plastic drain pipe to hold the trunk on?

Pete
