Well we dont have much for high seas here in the Gulf of Mexico. Rode today in 3-4ft waves, very choppy, the cat hull ate it up on full throttle. It measures around 10ft -tubes = 7.3ft.

Codders your rib is really broad are you shure its for the high seas- ?? what does she measure at max width without the tubes??

jonathan

The new QM2 is pretty broad as well - what's that got to do with it? Would have thought it would make it more stable myself?

13mtr Mcmullen and Wing

Here's a few pics of my Rib. Have'nt seen any other ones built by Mcmullen and Wing out of New Zealand on here. If anybody has one let me know, I am getting ready to make some modifications and would like some input.

Hey Hollywood,

That second picture with the trailer and truck wasn't taken right by the Gables was it. It looks very familar. I went to the University of Miami and always wished I had a boat to launch there. Matheson Hammock or something, right?

Rogan...the pic with the truck is taken at the 79th street causeway boat ramp on a monday morning early, it does look a lot like matheson and hammock though. The picture is facing south towards downtown, unfortunately I can't trailer the boat without special permits because of it's width so this was the only time its ever been on a trailer.

A mate's got a couple of Armstrong-Sidelley Viper(sp?) jet engines lying around... I assume you need bow thrusters?
