Yep possible, but 220 l of fuel up the front end is a huge weight. Mine had 130 l set 10" back from standard. Off to denmark then and compare with Rene. sure its chine walk rather than porpoising or bow steering ?

No, not at all, i'm far from an expert on this subject, infact i expect it is one of the last two options.

The hull is quite a lot longer than 5m, there is nothing more than 10cm overhang and the bow and not a vast amount of tube extension from the stern - that is one of the reasons i was so atracted to this boat, its relatively large waterline length.

Can't be sure there is no water in there, she's been afloat for a couple of weeks, coming out saturday. I'll play with weight distribution - i must be down to 120-150li fuel now aswell.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far - i still hope its just some air in the steering system combined with to much bow weight when only 2 on-board (as there has been all this week).

I think Rene is towing over for the 3rd RIBnet meet, or have i mixed him up with someone else? Could be handy.

About the boat......

You never know. I might bring the Osprey or I might bring, well something else

If I can get my frind to take his own car I might bring both.

But I sure will be there (Afraid to be called wuss, if I miss this one)

hmmm....

I don't know what the boat will look like yet. It's a new mould, 1.st customer boat out off it.

I got a VERY good price on it, but havn't seen it yet. I have been talking to the builder for the past 8 month, and we have made a lot of changes from the first design.

It's 8 meters, and 2.8 meters wide, concept a bit like balistic 7.8

I promise to post pictures the day of arrivel. I have been promised delivery i feb. (cross my fingers, they have said this before)

Engine ....
looking at Yamaha Vmax (again), or Suzuki DF250 new 4 stroke).

I really like the 4 stroke idea, but have to consider pricing.

It should be finish in good time before the meeting, but sailing accross .... Think I will take the feery, to save some miles on the road.
My wife and I arrive in Harwich Friday at 11.00 (morning), and then maybe meet up with Daniel to drive to South Hampton

Chine walk

My Osprey starts to Chine walk around 40 - 45 knots, at 35 it a walk in the park. I can get 52 knots out of her, but then you need to hang on tight.

130 Liters of fuel, and not a lot up front. The boat have a very nice balance.

After engine change it tends to fall on the right side when wave jumping.

To bring this thread up-to-date the solution was simple - move the anchor!

Various sea states and amounts of fuel have now been tried and the problem is gone all together. Even with a full tank of fuel and only one passenger in the rear, with the anchor under the rear seat there were no problems even making 40knts in a moderate sea.

The ride is much drier aswell - more like i expected it to be.

Thanks to all who gave advise.

The steering had self-bled it's self and just needed topping up slightly.

It was like a mill-pond last time i went out and with about 150li fuel 2-up try as i did i could note get more than 46knts (53mph) @ 5200rpm. The plus point is the boat was very stable at this speed, could have a chat with my friend!

Rene

I'm interested in what prop you are using at what sort of load (fuel/people) you can get over 50 knts...

Also, i had not thought about you arriving into Harwich, that's a lot less convinent to meet-up that Dover (makes sence now i think about it that you are not coming into DOver) but we can speak about that nearer the time. There is likely to be some pople coming from the Essex way that may travel in convey with you.

It's 3" to stbd infact, i've just measured it. My outboard man reckons that is about right for 150hp engine.

The set-up is very good now i'm removed the weight from the bow. I'll let you know what Mr Osprey says when i call him.

Just a thought - I wonder if Rene has got that dual-prop version of the 150 V-Max?
