Truly amazing little boat gurnard and the performance is brilliant with the 6 hp yam interesting too is how you are modifing it as you go not just bespoke to your own needs but to add to the design to make her more capable in certain conditions.

>>>However ..there is no way I can keep on the plane into six foot waves... and I doubt any SIB can despite some folks claims... I approach at fast displacement speeds .. watching and judging these waves .. then cross when they fold over... Its at displacement speed her nose drops

Same here Gurnard. When we have to drop off the plane in rough water I keep to a fast displacement so the bow is held a little high and we stay dry... bad for fuel economy though. Move daughter a bit towards the transom too if needed to get the trim spot on.

As you say drop the speed right off and it gets very wet... and in my case the crew complaints start.

Running with waves like that is huge fun though.
