I need a 4X4........I got towed by one though, i just can't belive it! Even Lee slip beat me...At high tide no less .

Great get together and even finished it off with giving my two children a blast, couldn't get the wife to come along unfortunatly. My daughter laughed uncontrollably and my Son was the quitest I've ever seen him (sleep aside).

I wondered why the Sea was full of soap suds, the oil quick response team thought they had a tanker leaking....I told them it was Pete and they said they knew him well. .

Haslar slip was a bit tricky recovering Kohaku. I'm glad my winch man was on hand (Dad).

I've also got some repairs to do. Rubbing strake is comming of on both side of the bow, I'll find out what my gluing skills are like in the next couple of days.

Anyway I'm knackerd so I'm of to bed to dream about redundancy pay and what I can spend it on!

Photo's tomorrow,

Andrew

Smoke, what smoke just as well you didn't see Carly start the XR2 race engine up. Yarmouth Harbour master beat a hasty retreat (after lightening us of 5.50) but loads of tourists came running over to see what was happening.

The reason for the smoke by the way is the engine needs the turbo to kick in at 1500 revs before the air/fuel mixture is correct. During initial acceleration the engine just over fuels so lots of black smoke.

Great to see so many little ribs out. Rib International chose a little Avon one year as there magazine boat and did some amazing cruises with it.

Hey Pete, I've noticed lots of diesels do that on acceleration. Is it rare to have a boost sensitive injector pump? Also, when it's smoking like that, is it producing less power than if the fuel/air ratio were higher, ie like running a petrol engine v.v. rich?
Cheers

Yup...there we were all delighted with our RIBS...
Carly & Matt come along & start up and everyone in Yarmouth comes over to watch.

Robin, great pics. I saw that you had a Canon 300D, is that right? I would've taken more pics myself but my rib is far too wet (especially in those conditions) to get my Nikon out. Do you have any methods of keeping the water off your camera when you're out?

If you guys come again when conditions are more favourable then I'll be well up for snapping away...I've got a nice big lens to try out

I didn't realise the Batboat thingy was owned by people off this forum!

Matt, I think you might only find this on the later diesels, my Disco has some sort of widget to do this. The P22 engines are purely mechanical pumps and I can't see any link between inlet pressure and the pump. As expected they don't produce much power until the turbo kicks in.

Attached is the later Turbo 4 power curve.
