Heck yeah! Anytime you want to go, I am up for it. 25 knots or less is fine to cruise at. Any more than that, and I will just go through the gas.

looks great. what kind of speed are you getting from that 50 horse?

do you have any issues with larger sturgeon possibly puncturing the tubes as you drag them over the side?

this one's a possible danger to your tubes i imagine!

I haven't worried to much about them puncturing the tubes. We use a net, since we catch mostly shakers. I have not run into anything over 6 feet. Don't know what to do if that happens.

On the speed, I don't have a GPS or speedometer installed at the moment. So it is hard to gauge the speed.

But it easily planes with little or no effort, and that is without a doel fin or smart tabs. But one thing I can tell is that the hull handles rough water better than my previous RIB. It must be the deep V going all the way back.
