Good question and the bow design was what took the longest to get right on this hull.

In terms of minimising bow steer we have lifted keel line towards the bow and made sure there are sufficient volume in the bow for recovery.

Since the launch the RIB has been used two times a week all winter for offshore fishing in the North Sea (west coast of Norway) in various conditions, also in very rough weather. The handling is reported to be very good also in large following seas.

Will report back when I have tested it myself.
