I do not believe it

My invisible vipermax is actually going to present it self, to my very own eyes this week.
Ed@olmec has finished my fine tubing job, well i am sure it will be! a spanking job as he calls it,
now 3 days to fit it out shouldnt be unreasonable is it guys,
seats, stainless back rests, engine. (all 200hp of it). fairly good electric package, radio,map plotter,smart guages. a-frame, radar reflector. lights, switches, hydraulic steering, flush any debris from tank , quick lake test, bit of tinkering here and there no dought,
so where do i go sat......got to be solent or exmouth, some place with plenty of boats just in case we get a fuel blockage, not unusuall in new build under floor tanks ive been told, but osprey havent had the fault yet,, if its going to happen it will happen to me

to say one is a likkle excited at the thought of finally getting this beast would be an understatement...and ive been told the weather is looking on the up

engine choice!
well to be honest it started out as a 150 optimax, as the price was real cheap @ time of order being placed., later on i then decided i wanted 175 for more torque, good old ep barrus have only 2 in stock @ collection date. 175hp that is. and the MOD wanted them asap, so i got a great deal on a 200hp for same money, as the 175,, couldnt say no could i,

It'll be interesting to see what she'll do in terms of top speed. What size/pitch prop are you proposing to run. I'm on a 17" 19P which is giving just over 40knts at 5400rpm. The pop out is instant, which is ideal when the kids are boarding. A 21P would possibly be better for cruising.
