Sounds like you can't go wrong with that - the Osprey Viper is an excellent hull and the an Opti 175 will power it along very well indeed.

220 litres will take you a long way so you've got an excellent cruising setup.

Interesting that you've listed 4x single jockey seats as this will lose storage space compared to 2x doubles. And you've gone for two fishfinders - are you intending to do a lot of fishing?

4x1 v. 2x2

Funny you should say that Richard,

When we tried the Scorpion 8.1 at last year's RIBex, my wife and daughter didn't like the 2x2 set up, saying that their forward visibility was impaired by the (big) heads in front! Mind you, my wife was sitting behind Graham!!!

Now that I have decided to get another boat (disregarding medical advice not to!) I shall certainly be looking for separate pods - either 4 x 1 or even 6 x 1, depending what I end up buying.

Good to see you back on the site!

Cheers!

Chris.
