Rig is big so no room in front of console, so rig goes behind seat and over engine. The sailor sits on the mast (on the tube) to hold it down. Start off into wind, then so long as the apparent wind stays from the front the rig doesn't flip.

Managed into find a nice boat with electric start today,so all is good.

Never had a rescue with a console!

Manual (only) start is rare on a consoled rib if you have remotes you normally get elec start...

Console would be far more comfy.....
