My opinion would be the viper has most cockpit room and also give a great ride.

I had an '02 Vyper (spelled with a y btw) with HO's. Ran the chit out of it for 5 years with no issues. And the cabin is hands down the best in class. The biggest problem with that boat is it will chine walk. Sometimes really bad. Pretty sure the high cabin has a negative affect on the center of gravity. You can control it with tabs, but that scrubs speed. If you are not going to overnight alot, I recommend the Fountain. I've ridden on my buddy's several times and it rides really nice. And if the 33 is an Outlaw, I'm told they ride good too. And the Outlaw will have the most hull in the water of the two as the others have built in swim platforms (and maybe even a beak) that are included in the length.

Take them all for a ride if you can.

And keep us posted.
