He has the original 24 foot mould and I have the XR18 mould. Not sure what happended to the 20 foot version, they may have been broken up. Rights to build were bought with the moulds. The XRs are different from the Lynx that the new Osprey firm sell.

Yes wasn't that the 24 foot Vector hull with tubes all round the bow? think there was one of these that was used as a powerboat racing support boat, its on atlantic Web but the site is down at the moment.

The XR 24 and 18 moulds are the originals. I recently found the guy that actually made these moulds after the first "delta conic" shaped hulls with flooding compartments were modified to include the large planning pad and more normal sealed hulls.
