Stop dithering will yer. Buy one. Either. It don't matter. I'd be happy with any of the two.
Both well built, Ribcraft has less internal room but the Osprey will be more expensive to run as the 5.8 really needs 150hp for adequate performance.
I recently spent two days in a Ribcraft with twin 75 etecs doing safety cover and it was a sweet, well planted boat.
I think the Viper would be the better choice for heavier loads e.g. diving trips but for economical two up cruising, I'd go for the Ribcraft.
