Clenching an arse that big should ensure that you have enough grip on the seat not to come off in the first place.

Andy,
Out of interest what does your Tornado 6.8 do flat out with the 200 on the back?

2 people up, 180litres of fuel and the boat does about 53mph.

When loaded this drops but not by much. At the weekend we where 6 people up, 4 sets of dive gear plus 180litres of fuel and pulled 45mph.

I have carried 10people & 8 sets of gear when we had to assist another boat, and flat out was pulling 40mph.

Thanks to all the advice. At the weekend when I experienced the problem, I assumed the nose was light and moved decktanks forward and filled them. Added a few weight belts and a cylinder and was sorted. Problem fixed.

Also I found the best way to stop wobbles was to let the car slow down under its own steam when the wobble started ... soon sorted it.
