Viper/Vipermax, whats the difference?

Can someone tell me what the difference between the viper and the vipermax hulls.
There's a viper 575 on the market at the moment but its not the layout that I would want so its not ideal. Anyone have a rough idea of cost to refit with double console and four jockey pods?

John, poor yourself a strong coffee and then sit down and have a look at this:

http://www.outhill.com/index.htm

Next have a chat with Leeway or Ocean Ribs etc reference the parts, that way they will seem like bargins. You could also try Osprey to see if they are up and running yet.

You might like to have a think about the fuel tank in the Osprey which will fit within about 24" of the bow locker and extend most of the way to the back of the console. If you put a side by side seat in its going to stick out.

Pete

So does that mean the fuel tank is proud of the deck when the centre console is removed?

Just had a strong coffee but after looking at the outhill prices I need another

yes by about 10 inches. However the S/S tank are normally covered in GRP to hold them in place, so a box over the bit that sticks out with a seat could hide it.

however all is not lost. Choose the right rib manufacturer during the autumn and things should calm down a bit and you could get a nice set of mouldings made.

Jimbo, yes Ocean Ribs in Portchester, Malcomn has a large selection of mouldings, well worth a nose around.

I gave you a stainless prop, what more do you want??

Seriously - thanks for that, I'll wait until the boat show is over and things have died down a bit, and get in touch.
