Remembered why i like ribtec hulls again as it cut beautifully through chop with out slamming making or it hard work. Made me realise how uncomfortable some boats of similar size are despite their reputation suggesting otherwise.
Cheers Graham. I spent a bit of time yesterday changing a few bits about and also putting a neutral line on the throttle base. I have talked with Steve to lift the raft off in a few weeks whilst it is on training but have not got it done for this weekend. I agree about the weight for training and free up space. Also we had a lot of water in the hull space (as you thought) so have closed the inner plug now and Biff is looking to add height to the tramsom. All this to make it easier for everyone and of course to keep your feet dry.
