The bow is swept up at then end which is the way it should be for good seakeeping!!! That is why it probably looks a bit higher than normal - be greatfull - shouldn't be much risk of stuffing!!!

Not quite - there is a bit of a curve but not as much as some - similar hull to the Revenger.

Your boat looks to be riding OK to me!

In fact, if anything, it's the stern that's plonked firmly in the water rather than the bow being too high. I'm going to stick my neck out and estimate your speed in the two side-on photos as no more than low 30's (knots)?

I usually trim to lighten the steering, then match the trim to the conditions. Like Simon has said, only keep the trim "in" or "down" in a head sea. In good conditions, carry on trimming out gently and watch the speed rise slowly.

Alan - I suspect Codprawn may have the Rapier hull rather than the Giggleswick/Wrigglesworth/Temptress hull? But I'm just guessing here! Hope it's laminated better than Ferryman!
