Yes indeed I have already changed that with my own straps ,I literally took those photos as soon as I got home. Any more ideas on cleaning the tubes so far I've been told TFR ,fairy spray and elbow grease. :-0

yes, would guess so, but would depend on hulls, if the Tornado was a deep V then both should be similar, the 80's 2 stroke has probably seen some action so the '09 4 stroke should be a bit better overall. did you get to try your new Osprey out on the water before buying?

You should see significantly better fuel economy if the diff between my Dad's old 'rude and new Suzi is anything to go by!
