If you thought that was impressive watch this
Right at the start you will see the boat lands VERY stern down - but it is running unladen - all the seats in the front would normally be filled with troops which would balance it out far better.
It is only at the very end when it comes alongside the support vessel you realise just how rough it REALLY is!!!
Impressive holeshot isn't only the preserve of twins - my boat jumps like a scalded cat because of the 19" 4 blade prop - limits my top speed to 41kts thopugh - will try another prop this weekend....
Yes but the ones where it was a stern heavy landing was when taking off at a very high angle! Put it this way, it flies exactly the way I would like my perfect boat to fly and I still really want one
Have seen the other video before, quite impressive too. Funnily enough I also seem to be accumulating a goodly collection of RIB videos, quite a few from the Blue Ice website, Richard's ones are excellent
41 kt is a bit slow codders even my old Humber with its swiss cheese tubes gets to 39kt with a lawnmower engine on the back
