I am reluctantly selling my newly commissioned Osprey Vipermax 6.2 with a Mercury 100 Efi due to moving abroad
I think we all know the real reason why he's selling up!

I think Gotchi is saying it's somewhat underpowered.

Somehow I think he'd change the engine before the boat though.

If you don't have anything factual to say don't say it. If you are an idiot keep your mouth shut. Forum's are supposed to be supportive!

I built this RIB for efficiency and long distance cruising.

I have just returneD from a 150 mile cruise in the Bristol Channel and never once was I under powered.

Planing is at 3,000 RPM, cruising speed is 24Kn at 4,000 RPM and top speed recorded at WOT was 39Kn. More than enough for me and very difficult to use WOT on the sea in a F5!

By the way, fuel consumption is very low...the mots important thing to me.

Good luck with the sale, and with the move to the USA; I hope it all works out well. Great boating on the Great Lakes!
