Not a 6.5 with a 200 then, but pretty impressive, all the same. What's the max speed you've seen out of a 6.5 with a 200hp?

Sorry Ian M - pinching your thread here. Lovely looking boat btw

With a 225 E-tec 62knots (as they say) and i had a Viper Max 6,5m with a 200HPDI, that one did 53 knots but console was pretty far front.

Good luck on the 17th Ian - hopefully next trip will be in the Osprey! For anyone who doesn't want the fun of fitting out their own RIB and wants to be on the water quickly, perhaps they should look at our demonstrator - available now all ready to go @ £22,500 (sensible offers considered). Details on www.ospreyribs.co.uk.

I thought that I had better own up to how much progress I have been making of late. As you can see from the photograph all the instrumentation is fitted as is the steering
Actually the pile of bits is growing by the day, I just wish that some of them would find their way into the boat
A lot of what I need to do is serial, and often I find myself waiting for that key component before I can continue.
Still not all bad, I think that I have at least mentally solved most of the design issues that kept me awake at night.
As you can see from the other photo I have even taken a hole cutter to my nice new shiny boat

Bradders......mine is just on 50 knots now and top end seems to have been increasing over time as engine loosens up as i always treat her very gently
