Yes, the basic boat itself is impressive enough but with the layout changes and interior design and John brought to the build makes it greater than the sum of the parts.

I think I will have to wait for a roll-over on the euro lottery before I could consider owning one too.

The other Viper is still a current model.

Could've gone for something a little more original. 'Cobra Krait' has a ring about it.

We saw that one too. Very smart. Glad we didn't bump into each other, I would have run away

That RC though, looked good, and we also had a peek inside. It is definitly the Shearwater cabin though. Anyone know what the deal is? Didn't our great friend Lee mould them for Bembridge O/Bs?

Myself and the smaller Nashers had a good look around the show today and managed to have a good crawl all over the Beneteau fast Trawler 44 which is a real dream boat for me, but at @500K it will never happen.

Oh and we had our photo taken in front of a 'Green Screen' on the RNLI stand, and I had these in my inbox when I got home
