Osprey identification

Is there an easy way (without taking every single measurement) to identify/differentiate between the viper and vipermax, I am looking at one at the moment and the guy says he hasnít a clue which model it is and there are no identification plates on the hull.

Guidance welcomed on this!

DJ

Is that the one for sale in Donegal? I'd guess it's a Viper...early style single dive console.

Thanks for the comments and no its not the Donegal model with the unique spelling

I have now discovered it is a viper! From what I have read here and on the Osprey owners site they are decent boats with good sea keeping- any contrary views??
