How to do it in the surf!!!

By "it" I mean ribbing of course.........



Usually only see little SIBs or zapcats doing this. Great boat handling - they play pretty good rugby as well....

The local fishermen run up the beach all the time at the beach we use in start bay, I've tried it in the past in my old Flatacraft Force 4 but not in anything bigger.

Its easier with a manual lift engine where you can just release the lock before hitting the beach.
Timing is obviously everything with hydraulic lift, as obviously you lose drive when the prop gets too high and don't get a decent run up.

Interesting isn't it!! I know it is a rescue boat, but that sort of manouevering by a rib or jetski so close to the shore line would be frowned upon by the general public along the majority of our shore line.

Nah - just find an empty bit. There's lots of it out there...

Either that or do it early morning, or in the evening!! Or in the winter. Or all 3!!

slapton? the fisherman usually drive their little bonwitcos straight at the beach at about 30knts. they leave it to the last minute and cut their engines while their still in forward gear. the impact just throws the engine up into the tilted position
