Although based on the same hull the Falcons had a squared off bow, so I would still say it is a Viper.

When I spoke to Offshore Components before they sold Osprey, they said that a couple of inboards had been completed, this may have been one of them.

i think you will find it's an ocean, years ago i altered the front of the mould and made it wider, have a look on one of the rails right at the front to see if there's a slight imperfection in the gell

Unlikely. It's still floating after all these years...

If there is, then it cant have been the mould you modified!

not so i'm afraid, that's one of the reason's i now do my own stuff, i never got the time to do the job the way i wanted to finish it, same at ribtec, when i finished there and got my own place they kept bringing boat down for me to do, might be something going on with a new 10m cabin soon, have to get mine sold first, watch this space
