here we go again..........
have a look on the literature from the stingray manufacturer.
i'd be interested on your opinions on the manufacturers claims. i can catagorically say i experienced all they say happens (with the exception of eliminating chine walking, which it still did at WOT with the engine trimmed out for an extra knot or so) having had them on my avon (now sold), but also using the boat for a few months before they were fitted.
i think they must be very confident of what they claim in a country (where they sue you for coffee that's too hot), especially if they are prone to turning boats over!!!!
I also thought most boats dropped the side of the boat that is on the inside of the turn. many ribs whose tubes dont touch the water at rest, still touch the water on the inside of a turn.
i'm still not saying they are the answer for every boat, just that they make stern heavy boats perform noticabley better as said by jelly, nick, manos and myself.
would be interseted on your opinions...
