Ring 600

A friend of mine has one of these and I find it very unsettling to ride in it has a Hondo 90 f/s . The ride seems to be very unstable and it is always hopping from side to side .He has been advised to have more weight up front. Compared to my RIBCRAFT 5.85 I consider it to be too much of a handfull in anything other than flat water . it is very easy to stuff in big seas .
I will not let my children ride in it , this is just a personal thing and I would find it hard to explain to my mate why I am not happy about his boat only that it does not feel right. The RIBCRAFT feels safe in any conditions even with an incompetent helm (me ) at the wheel.
Sorry to be negative!

re ring 90 honda

i think it's a bit strong to slat the ring in this way , saftey is my first concern, i have been out in many ring ribs and if propely set up, by which i mean the right transom hight, the weight balance.etc.
they are very fast stable boats and very good in the choppey stuff
IMHO



PS I THINK MR WAVEHUMPER IS CORRECT ABOUT SEATING

Rockey your profile is a trifle lacking in detail.

No - just trying to establish the basis for the strong recommendation. Would you like to elaborate, rockey?

i'am not sure where this is going.

but for info i no a freind who have had 620 avons with 150 vmax
on the back cracked the hull not his doing bulid quality, took for ever to get replaced, also boats chinerided with any small amount of trim , and wos slow on top speed took about 3 weeks
to sort it out lifted engine moved weight in boat around changed prop allwent very well after that.


its.unfair to slag a boat off if it's not set up right.
perhaps your freind should get some one to sort it out
i.am sure if he phoned mike ring up he would sort it

if you can't
