Yes I agree, I also forgot that the price's quoted didn't include a fuel tank for the RIBcraft which would have added extra ££'s
On a slightly negative for the Osprey though, when I was looking at speccing mine (a year ago) they didn't have a large range of consoles on offer and could offer only one width of seat base. I have been told they are addressing this situation however.
I supplied my own Console from a different manufacturer and they had no problems fitting it for me and they custom altered my seating too.
The other slight negative, was that Osprey didn't offer a seat upholstery service and stainless fitment service, both that would have been of interest to me. They however recommended people to me but where too far North to have been practible (living on the South Coast).
These are only my own personal observations, but most prefer it the way it is.
By the Way, I'm so happy with mine that if I do upgrade it would be for a bigger Vipermax with more two sets of 200 Horses on the back. Yehha
