Nah, I've been away on business on and off for the past few months and haven't a.) had the time b.) been no where near a PC c.) drunk!
Sounds a bit strange about the water over the transom, I beached mine the other week to give the hull a spray and clean and whilst the odd wave did come over the stern (the sea was a little lumpy out, but not too bad) but not to the amount your suggesting. I do have the long shaft (bragging again
) and so as you say the transom is slightly higher, but several of my mates RIBS have lower transoms (in fact a couple much lower than mine and they don't seem to experience too many problems).
As Steve suggested maybe the engine weight is a bit close to the max!?
Also worth checking water under the deck as mine has a habit of storing loads in there after thrashing about in the rough stuff and the downpours of rain we seem to be getting at the moment. (oop's just read the next page!)
Hope that helps!
