TBH .. I bet theres a shed load of us that have gone vertical at some point .. I know I have, in 5.8 and 6.5 M boats .. always getting a blast of wind under the hull whilst airborn .... I dont see why it needs to be turned into a special thread cos.. you'll never predict the exact moment when that sort of thing happens. If you want to push the envelope in a safe boat like a RIB you know your doing it for the thrill .. and good on ye .. I love it too... at times .. but its like everything else .. if you push the envelope .. your going to have to deal with the consequences

Enjoyed many comments on this thread which I had not read much since page 3 a while back .. Well done to rescue crew .. matth calm down fella Mollers .. ya gettin old fella .. just like me

Because every so often someone comes along and says "how easy is it to flip a rib" and "if I capsize how do I get it back". Nobody is ever going to find this thread by searching and even if pointed this way they've got 90% of drivel to dig through before they find the interesting bits.

Well that's your world here fella ... Life's tough when you have to miss the bake off final due to a spark plug or roll over debate

I hate to admit this but I'm with Poly on this one, in all my years I've never seen a vid of a righting that wasn't staged, there is a wealth of information to be gleaned from this

It looked like you were having a fantastic time. Loved the bit where you ducked under the windscreen

1. Was Matt's jump on video where he was close to vertical on reentry the one that caused the missfire? Do we know if the powerhead got totally submerged?

2. How much did the lower sponson need to be deflated by?

3. I noticed Matt climbed onto the hull near the stern, but later was pulling from much nearer the bow. Where was the best spot to right from?

4. How did you drain the water out the powerhead and get it going again?

This is a fabulous video and we can all learn so much from it. Looked like a textbook recovery. Credit to all present for looking after each other and dealing with the capsize in a professional and seaman like fashion.

Chris

Motor didn't run again till boat was recovered at Calshott - rinsed with fresh water - plugs removed and any ingested water expelled - loads of WD40
