I have no idea what changes were made to the newer Osprey. If I calculate the stability of the original lines a 10 pound change in boat weight gives less than a 1% reduction in stability. As I mentioned earlier a lot can happen when molds are replaced.

It was a surprise for me then when the infused Osprey not only looked a bit different and more like the the stripper version I have seen, but also felt a little bit different than the old style one I test paddled a year ago, which is about 8 lbs heavier than the one I have now. But, I think there is a bit less sheer now too, and maybe because of that the boat is half an inch deeper now (or the other way around :) ) which of course means the seat is higher too, which has some effect on stability too.
Anyway it looks very good now and the performance was even better than expected. I was prepared to give up speed compared to my We-no-nah Whisper 15'6", but the possible speed difference on the flats turns out to be minimal -- as far as I can experience :wink:
