Mollers' old 6.5 Vipermax measured 6.5m and my 5.8 Vipermax measures 5.8m

Mine has been sold as an Osprey vipermax 6.99 certainly because the importer did not want to pay the french tax for boat over 7meters.

But I do not know its real length.

I thought the HO was just stroked by a fraction of an inch giving a bit more torque

Well I've just nipped outside and put the tape measure to mine. Tip to tail it is just shy of 6.8m. I will remeasure tomorrow in the daylight to confirm, but it's certainly over 6.7m

I was also told that they do give out more power than the decals say, but I've never seen it written anywhere. Anyway, as we know torque is sometimes more important than Hp alone. It may all be a clever marketing spiel.

Yes but also have a specific injection cartography which allows better reponse more torque and more power in high revs.

Eurocraft seem to have been a bit more generous with the toobs on later boats, than when Mollers' old boat was done back in '99ish (by Olmec, I think )

More mapping than stroking I think you'll find.

Is your VM really '99? I assumed it was only a couple or 3 years old, credit to you if it is

I think he's referring to his old 6.5, not his current 7.0. Mine was bought under the guise of 6.5.
