Henshaws made a grand job of the tubes, the black and grey was his idea, I'm glad I trusted him.

The end is so close now,


Made the trip to Henshaws yesterday, very impressed with my personal tour with Chris, never seen so many tubes in one place, so many shapes and sizes,
And as for the huge, and I mean huge oil catch thinger me jigs that get towed through the sea, knell it's f ing huge and then some,

49 staff all working away quite merrily, lol must be the glue in the air, but they all appear to be more than capable of working alone on what ever task set to them,

Just got them selfs a laser cutter installed for name or logo cutting, another new item to there array, seen a laserd badge for some thing, very impressive flush mounted and absolutely fitted like a glove,
Need a new logo or any stencil work in hypalon, it's there ready to work ,


Now my steed, bloody photos are at work ,, military grey impressed fabric tubes are being shoe horned on with black d strake and accessories , looking mighty fine,
Oh yes and of course, I had to let the laser add The corporate Osprey logo ,

Will post completion pics soon,

Chris, massive thanks for the tour and assistance over the years , an honest knowledgable gent, can not recommend them enough,

Looks great, Edd.

Did you consider winged backrests? I think they'd look really good on there and they work well too.

Approved to the tune of a 6month warranty for all refurbed Ospreys regardless of who did the work?
