Yeah, I'd agree,the console's too far back and it rides high on the bow even with people on it, he's doing trips on it so it's ideal as it is but may be in need of Ballast / trim tabs.

Pcicture 2 looks like he's doing more than 6kts - and he's still within the harbour speed limit - naughty for an evironmentally aware chap! Still the spped limit onlly applies when the volunteer patrol's out, and then not to any commercial venture!

Don't really mean it!
