The original 1996 brochure for the XR20 has been added here, as well as on the resources page, I believe a few more of these old brochures are kicking around with various people, and I hope to get copies of these soon. In the meantime I will leave you with my latest idea which is OOA merchandise. No not T-shirts or stickers or anything like that. Something more special than that... something a little more... bespoke... I will be sounding interest in the coming weeks.

Oh and thanks to Stephen for re-uploading Seawolf. I attached a picture to it this afternoon

Oooh, an Osprey airfix kit perhaps? Propellor key rings? The suspense is killing me....not really.

I can get you a good deal on some nice polo shirts

I reckon a name change might be a good idea though, something that rolls off the tongue a bit more easily ?

Any ideas anyone

Maybe something along the lines of "New Osprey Boatowners Society"?



Get yourself a badge designed and I can hook you up with some nice blazers too...

I didn't make up the name, so it maybe up for change if you can think of a better title. Someone came up with what I thought was a good slogan "Birds of a feather flock together" something along the lines of that might work. Flock of Ospreys etc etc

Trouble is that Ospreys are not known for their 'flocking'! Solitary(ish) birds, mate for life and migratory. (twitch twitch!)

Have fun with collective nouns for Snakes.......Bed, Den, Nest, Pit.

Good site BTW

Latest updates, more to come tonight probably:
  • Stephen's photo change as per his request
  • picture of the XR18 mould in it's current state uploaded
  • Official and complete Osprey brochure 1998/1999 uploaded
  • Official Viper brochure from 1994 added including very interesting price list.
  • Few more pictures uploaded to gallery

Please keep this thread on topic, it's supposed to be a record of the updates of the site, rather than a free for all discussing how your wives take advantage. Thank you.

What do we think about adding a propeller section to the details?

I say yes. Could be helpful and interesting all at the same time.

I think the photo gallery would benefit from being broken down into smaller groups somehow. There's too may shots and they're all a bit random IMHO

Yes to props; gallery could be split into boats and planes
