Again nice boat, but I am also biased.

There does seem to bit a number of "Vipers" now on the forum..

Glad to read the positive feedback on the Osprey vipers. We hope to collect our Osprey vipermax a week today!! It has been fitted with a 150 Optimax.

Sure I will.

Till now the engine is still in the US. Evinrude promised to fly it over before the end of the week. If the engine is in Belgium before Friday BMC will be able to finalize it for the weekend.

The engine has not arrived yet. That means no boating this weekend! Thank you Evinrude!

Petrov,

They managed to fit the engine the same day. Friday at 19h we had our first test-drive.

The rib and the engine are awesome. Even thou she's heavy, the performances are still good. With Kris behind the controls we reached a top speed of 52Kn (2 adults and 220l of fuel on board).

Next weekend we will have our first sea-trail.
