That's right mate. Waves where strong enough to lift the trailer up and move it a few feet. I launch like dave from Wavelength but haven't tried to recover like he does yet.

17th May - River Tejo, Lisbon

Trip along river Tejo with a couple of friends.
Little Valiant never got past 40km/h. Dont know why.
I moved the fuel tank into the seat but I guess that had nothing to do with it. Porpoising was a bit less tough.
Cheers
Hugo

Here's my new boat:-)

I'll post some more photo's once I get it back out of the garage. I can't believe how hard it is to find somewhere to launch around the Liverpool area!

Nice I've been very impressed with my Valiant 570, the build quality is very good, and for a fairly shallow V hull , I'm amazed at the ride on mine . I have a bow locker though, that has 2 anchors and chain in it, and the inboard tank under the floor is well forward, I think the big tubes help too. I thought the v400 had a bow locker too ?,.. it will take a 40 maximum, but maybe its worth investigating a smaller prop or if the motor is set too deep ?

Left the wife on the seafront at Cowes to take a few snaps of us in our Ribeye.

Here are some of the ones where she managed to get us in focus
