Sib Riding Position & Other
Would you confirm that driving a well balanced wide sib with proper inflated tubes seated on sib's inside middle boat aliminum floorboards with 2 mates side to side facing each other planes faster and preforms better than both mates sitting at the same position on top of the tubes.
Have driven sibs for years sitting on tubes, but find the new driving position to be much pleasent and with better control of the sib at high speed cause the mates weight is on the floor gaining a better center of gravity. We are actually sitting on personal inflatable cushons with our backs against each tube, knees bent, with superb front driving visibility. A prudent position when cruising in chopy/windy seas. Any experiences, thoughts ?
Is it safer, OK to add once in a while gas aditives to boat's pre mix, the ones that maintains carbs & fuel inyectors clean made of petroleum distillates while keeping the right gas/aditive proportion ? Any advise on this one ? Mainly to clean carb from gum deposits.
