150 or 200

If it helps, I had the same dilemma. Drove the 150 6.5 metre Vipermax demonstrator with an etec, which it has to be said was lively enough, but went for the 200 as there was very little downside (except cost!). However, in my case, etecs were the only make under consideration.

Yep, all sorted. Thanks for the help along the way Chris .

The new hull is now nicely nestled in my back garden awaiting some brighter weather to start the fit out. Needless to say, there'll be a few photos popping up on Ribnet in the near future along with sporadic write-ups of my progress and dilemmas.

I heard of a large Vipermax being built for a Yam 350. Is that the first Ospery Vipermax with tapered tubes?

Can you fitt the engine higher?
Do you have any pics of the boat.
I'm getting 49knts with my out fit running a 23p 4 blade BRP prop. I've jacked the engine one hole which has put the cav plate 40mm above the planning pad.

W'dya reckon Pretrov?
