Don Aronow usually gets the credit, but I'm pretty sure he didn't do the design.

I think it's a joint design, Walt Walters & Jim Wynne, with a lttle helping hand from a fella called Leeway, who made a few 'improvements'.

You can also add the following Ospreys models.

Eagle, Sparrowhawk, Sea Harrier, designed from scratch by the late Ralph Williamson and his son Mike Williamson who now builds the current range.

The Viper & Falcon range of hulls was developed from moulds bought from Fletcher with the rights, by Ralph and Mike.

You can also add Reiver to the list of speed boats up in Yorkshire.

And the last one, Polar Ribs 5.8m as I have bought the original mould of the former Osprey XR 18 and hope to build one for fun. I was able to trace the history back to Osprey to ensure I have the original mould although I may change the name.

No, lots of us want to buy new boats.

It's just that we're either not allowed , or can't afford it! (or both in my case)
