I sold my Viper 5.75 with a Suzuki 140 (all 1998) for 10,000 that might give you an idea of the price. Although the buyer got a bargain IMO

Never said I liked doing that....it's just my quick way of rinsing the deck.

Are you saying that I'll need to fork out extra cash for a hosepipe if I get an Osprey

Have you considered the Explorer range Dai? They are built Near Rock in Cornwall. They make a statement in the Styling dept.The 'fence' type of consol would by up your street.http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F116609/

You could have hours of fun backing the throttle off and drowning the occupants of those transom seats.

Ok - thanks for all the advice on this.

Now, does anyone know of one of these (either make) for sale, dirt cheap, as a winter bargain? Something they can't wait to get rid of?

If you do, please pm me - don't want the whole world knowing about it

Decision made after much deliberation.

Came within inches of buying a very nice looking Ribcraft 585, but it didn't happen and I now have an Osprey Vipermax 5.8 on order.

You lot must be really convincing, as I haven't even driven one

Cool

Would be interested to hear more about it when you get it as it is one possibility on my shortlist

More photos would be good too as the Osprey website is a bit rubbish.
