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.

2 fish finders, but one plotter?

Personally, I'd do that the other way round.

I would put a plastic or ali tank in under the floor, Stainless becomes brittle after a few years and can crack. That boat is likely to take a hammering and you don't want to be looking at replacing and under fuel tank in a few years or worst still lubricating your beutiful optimax engine with water!

If you want Plastic the try Vetus or Tektanks. If you want ALi then talk to cookee as he knows a good tank guy

If I lived in Brum than I'd be buying drinks for David Manning, hes pretty boring company but he has fitted out a lot of them Osprey boats.

Only joking about being pretty Boring..he's not pretty at all!

Most people like Sea star hydraulics and they have never failed on me and most things do!

...Four singles is a better layout for any distance travelling. Much more comfortable for the ballast...er... I mean crew....




P.S. Sorry about the quality of the pic.. but it's the only one I've got which shows my seating clearly

Your cAll but if I was having a noo bOat Bilt then I wouldn't put a Stainless tank in a boat that was gonna be banging into waves at 40 knots plus.



whatever tank you put in it's gonna be a lot of fun if Top Banana is anything to go by

make sure the compass is mounted well away from the Electonics and cable route .

when you say fuel , amp speedo tacho guages etc are you having seperate guages or using the Smartcrafts that come with the engine cos they do the lot.

Mercury are owned by the Brunswick corporation and so are Navman and you can get a range of navman GPS's & depth sounders which are smart guage compatible and really enhance all the info coming off the Opti sensors. Nothing wrong with gArmin gps however!

I agree on the stainless thing - if you want to be taking it out again along with removing all the fuel from the bilge go ahead and fit a stainless tank - they do fail eventually!
