hi I have finally tried the rib after I have cut the ladder and I can tell you that everything is ok so it was the ladder the problem not the prop and it was a nice ride although it was going to end with a tragedy but thanks good all finished well as while I was coming back to the home port at a speed of 27knts the steering cable have broken and it end it that my daughter was rejected from the rib in to water but thanks good she was not with the lifejacket as if it was so the motor will have ended passing on her but thanks good again she was under water when the motor at 4000rpm passed on her. I could not gust imagine what have could been the end. now I have to check if the cable is included with the guarantee as it was supplied with the rib as if it it is so they will have to pay for all the damage that was caused by the faulty cable

Sheeesh Jason! Glad to hear about the ladder problem. You were very lucky with your daughter, I'm glad it ended well. I'd be taking a good look at the boat AND the dealer
