Hi everybody, I would just like to introduce myself as a new member to ribforums my name is Tim and my boat is an osprey viper 5.25 called sea wise that is powered by a 100 V4 suzuki 2 stroke 1996 :cool: and very fast.

Does anyone else out there own this type of engine as i have heard a number of mixed opinions on this unit for instance idling problems and starting, any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks Tim.

Have you recently bought it?

Hi Petrov, Well i bought the boat last september in south wales and having owned quite a few differant kinds of boats and ribs including a boston whaler dauntless none of them compare to this for seakeeping and build. ;)

Regards Tim.
