Yes - there are loads of options available, in fact there isn't really a 'standard' layout - each boat is made to the customer's specification wherever possible.

There is quite a few things i like about the osprey viper, the first thing is how the hull is practically the whole length of the tubes i.e no big over hang of tube at the bow or stern which gives a genuine size hull for type of craft and length of tubes, if you know what i'm saying, and makes a strong bow section. The hull at the front also cuts through choppy seas with ease, the centre consul is a nice shape and makes you feel nice and secure at the helm, nice deep vee hull, massive beam and big tubes that give outstanding sea keeping, the massive beam also makes the craft excellent in a following sea, Not to mention the sexy A frame and handy bow locker, i think the 5.25 viper is probably the best rib in its class for looks and sea keeping, maybe i'm bias but i don't think so

Now, what about this geometry? Put your bottle down for a minute and tell me a bit more about it?

Hi Roy,
Just got back & had a look at the pic's you e-mailed me....luv the boat, TOLD the wife we avin one! I will get back to you after the weekend with the spec, but just so you can be ready,
Same colour & pattern tubes as the one shown on here,
Rear seats with gray centers but white outers & seat seperators & Osprey embroidery in black on seat backs,
Only two single Jockey seats gray with white pipeing with Osprey embroidery on both backs in black,
Same consol with screen (light gray tinted) but set back as far as poss to allow for 2m molded sun pad,
Sun pad in Gray with white 12" wide center band (for to aft) with black 12" diameter Osprey logo embroided on the center white section,
We will talk about the 'A' frame as i want a Radar scanner on it so will need to be above head level.
& engine still not sure....200Hp Opti or E-tec price will dictate i think...
Now im exited!
